Is there any chance that ISU will reverse the decision of no fans and let us back in for the next home game?

Yeah, there will most likely be fans in the stand next weekend is what I was told. The covid cases on campus have dramatically decreased the past 2 weeks. There should be a communication coming out today.

I'm expecting JP to go with 15,000.
Depending on how many have opted out another possibility would be to go with all remaining season ticket holders.
Although the CDC has lost a lot of credibility under this administration, these changes will certainly hurt the possibilities of fans.

JP will run into a lot of opposition again with how much of a total s**t show this state is in.

I think you could totally do between 10-15k pretty safely though.... if you spread the fans out from one another. Put the seat back chairs on the seats where people are allowed to sit... I think that's a great idea.

It's Monday morning, cut some slack lol.

But I've heard JP is pushing for fans. They have been testing stadium crowd noises in case there isn't any fans.
Of course JP is pushing for fans. He probably needs to be pushing more for Iowans to wear masks and social distance if he really wants fans though. Iowa continues to be a total disaster with Covid.... and as long as that is the case, JP will have a tough time making his case.

Cases on campus have been declining since move in week. Face coverings are required. I don't think that will make his case to tough.

Cases on campus don't mean much, unless you're just going to only allow students in?

People come from all over the state to the football games.... none come from on campus.... except students.

Agree. He can point to other counties in Iowa that have colleges and other states in correlation to when they started up classes. They are following the same pattern as us, a quick spike and the. It settles down.
