A couple of days ago, in a post I linked to an article about Iowa State charging Iowa fans ninety bucks for a game ticket this year.
The Des Moines Register has a followup on the story. Evidently, Iowa is weighing the idea of opening its stadium up to its fans and showing the game on the big screen for a nominal charge (proceeds to go to charity).
The perfect summary of the situation is in a reader comment after the article from “JD55″:
This discussion has generated into the typical inbred fight over who has the biggest ****, when the real issue is whether either even has one…
Imagine what it would be like if those teams actually had anything meaningful to play for… besides inbred pride, of course.
