    What is your favorite ISU sport to watch? I'm posting the most common ones (including the popular club sports), but let me know if we should add any.

    I am personally a big men's basketball fan. I love football, but I personally don't know as much about it since it's a sport I've never played - it's harder for me to get into some of the more intricate parts of the game, so I don't post much about it.

    Hey Angie - why don't you have TENNIS on this poll? That's the "other" that I voted for.

    I would have to say MBB, mainly because of our past success there. After that wrestling then WBB. Football will be back up there once we have a little more success.

    I put football 2nd, but I love it.

    I just happen to have grown up watching Cyclone basketball.

    It's too bad that you can't pick two. I had a heck of a time deciding between football and MBB, with BF's squads a very close third.

    Given the recent discussions, one would figure that Tailgating is the #1 sport at ISU -- by a wide margin.

    Hockey is dollar for dollar the best value and most fun you can have watching Iowa State sports. Not only are they good, but you can drink at the games because it's a club sport. Not that I need alcohol to enjoy my ISU sports, but sometimes it helps.

    I love football, but I love women's basketball as well.

    As a family, we lean toward women's basketball.

    Angie's first question in her initial posting was"What is your favorite ISU sport to watch?"

    Favorite sport and favorite sport to watch can easily be different choices.

    When Hilton is rocking, there's nothing better.

    It's like electric dynamite.

    Id agree. Except I haven't been to a game in a long time at Hilton that was sold out to the brim and rocking like crazy.

    Dont get me wrong.. good crowds.. but not that special edge we would have over any other full stadium.


    JTS environment continues to get better and better as well. Winning= good environments. The obvious. Hopefully this year continues to see more wins!

    For some reason, Hilton always feels more like a community to me - everyone seems to react as one. It might just be that everyone is in much closer proximity, but I think Hilton Magic has a lot to do with it. Listening to the entire crowd do the "Left, right" chant when someone fouls out kills me every time.
