Is Kinnick too big of a stadium for Iowa or do Iowa fans just really suck?

    I agree it would be ridiculous if it wasn't true but it's a fact so I think it's fine to say

    It was $65 for North Texas, so I've got to assume that's the new baseline (which is complete ********, given the program's performance over the past 5 years). It was $45 or $55 for the ****** OOC games when I was still a student, like $60 for the weak B1G games and $70/$75 for ISU/OSU/Michigan/Wisconsin/etc.

    That's all a matter of perspective. Personally, I prefer ISU's tailgating scene (especially the student tailgating; I had a blast before the 2011 game with a bunch of friends who went to school at ISU that year), but there are also a lot of people who don't mind walking a ways. If you're one of those people, there's not much difference in the overall experience, IMO (I have just as much fun at Iowa tailgates as I did at ISU, but I wouldn't like walking from the outskirts of Iowa's sites, which is why I like ISU's a little better).

    It really depends on what you're good with as far as walking distance.

    No, for Cytwins, its fact. No perspective needed. Trust me, hes talked to a bunch of cyclone fans, and they all agree (which makes it fact, of course), that ISU tailgating scene blows Iowa's out of the water, and it isnt even close.

    Ha, all joking aside, I agree.

    In all seriousness they are just very different and it all depends what you want out of a tailgate. If you want to have less fun and walk a long ways than Kinnick is probably better for you. If not then Jack Trice is probably a better fit for you

    I hear ya, I was just kiddin around. But yeah, thats been my point this whole time- its just different. I agree, and Ive agreed with you in the past about this, Iowa's tailgating scene isnt what it used to be. Still fun, though, but not like it was.
