The port-a-potty lines were insane where we parked. Need more of those for sure for next year. Was a really fun place especially Power & Light. Hope they do that again next year!
My wife and I daytripped and enjoyed everything but the game's outcome and about the last hour of the drive home. We may stay overnight if we go back next year. Good chance we will go back next year.
Positives -- (1) Power & Light District with thousands of Cyclone Fans and (2) Arrowhead seats were more comfortable than JTS seats.
Negatives -- (1) $22 to park when I wasn't expecting it; (2) Security line to get in the game -- I wish my wife would touch me like that; (3) Drive home was miserable after heart breaking loss; and (4) Game being played at Arrowhead may have cost us the game and possible bowl berth this year -- time will tell.
It took me about a minute to get through security because I went in early. I wish there was a station that had good reception for the post game show on the drive home. I'm ready to buy my tickets for next year and hope more people show up to enjoy the game. It was worth every penny.
Now, I had a great time. The tailgate rivaled that of a Jack Trice tailgate. Kelly's was amazing on Friday. I've heard from a few people that the ISU party in the Power & Light district was a great time. All this only helps the people that attended the game. It just gets ingrained in the heads of people that ISU is small-time football when people don't make the trip to even remotely fill a football stadium.
Guys, Arrowhead was OK. I like the fact that I can go to that game both years and not have to go to Manhatten. I will tell you Arrowhead is nothing compared to Power and Light. Holy smokes was that a wild and crazy time. I can't believe I made it back to be honest.
1) $22.00 to park
2) Can't tailgate after the game for very long...Cops were extremely rude.."Pack your stuff up and get going!" Their exact words.
3) The fact that nothing was said about every single person being patted down before entering the stadium. If it was mentioned, I missed it!
My guess is the reason everybody was rushed out was due to the Chiefs game the next day and everything having to be cleaned up by 8am Sunday....they don't usually rush people out after chiefs games that quick.
$22 to park is crazy but parking is crazy everywhere in stadiums.
Patted down at a security line makes you not want to go back? Weird, I'm usually a fan of safety and drunk idiots not hauling in glass pints.
It was a fun game...hopefully we both bring more fans next year...that was a bit embarassing...hope all the Cyclone fans had fun despite the 1 point loss...Friday was fun at P&L...it wasn't all 'clone fans there.
Curious, but what were the expenses for the Athletic Department for this game? Sending the team down there and the special events... May not be the full $800,000 profit.
