    Slim pickins left for season tickets. I just can't justify buying season tickets without having a full-time job, even if it's in section 2.

    Section E since the day I was born. Between my folks, my wife and I, and our farm we have 12 seats.

    Awesome to see where sales have gone compared to the numbers I knew growing up in the 80s and 90s.

    Cyclone football is a powder-keg just waiting to go off - I just hope I can see explode in my lifetime.

    I think you have to be pleased with over 40k after a 3 win season but with that said it bums me out that almost 3k people decided to drop their season tickets because of a bad year. I mean, the amount of alums and new fans starting jobs with extra income should have covered the few band-wagoners that jumped ship right? I guess not...

    I also almost wished they had not announced the first two games being 11:00 am kickoffs so early. I know for me it was a serious buzzkill learning that and frankly I have to miss both games because of work and coaching flag football. 11:00 kicks seriously suck.

    2K less hillside seats was probably most of that. At the same time, with a bounceback year (and the extra capacity in the SEZ) , sales should bounce back next year as it is.

    I know this is gonna sound bad but I like the 11 game for us. It allows me to watch the later good games during the day. I can get ISU's game out of the way in the morning because I feel obligated to watch it and then after our game, real football starts.

    Your comment does sound really bad, but not for the reason you think.

    I don't mind the 11 am games so much. What I don't like are the late November Night Games. IMO, prefer no November Night games, but especially not after the first or second week in November.
