    I've recently become aware of a "tournament" settled by the people. I think we can all agree. Congrats Coach Campbell and the ISU cyclones!

    The peoples champion, one would have to assume voters took in to account the tailgating experience.

    Yes yes i know not best but has great tailgating setup and since bowled south endzone is actually P5 level stadium.

    FSU ahead of Bryant Denny is a joke

    ISU was a surprise but it’s a nice looking stadium.

    The tournament seems a little flawed. Must’ve been one of those things where it’s a poll and fans can flood the ballot. With all due respect, how is Jack Trice better than Kinnick? How is Paden Stadium better than Clemson’s? Including Toledo and Ohio but not Pitt and Miami? Very questionable.

    Only problem with Bryant Denny is that it’s full of Alabama fans.

    No love for the Pacific Northwest. Autzen and Husky stadium out in the first round. Both are great places to see a game.

    No wonder BYU went out in the first round.

    It appears Clemson fans cared enough to ensure we didn't lose to South Carolina, then lost interest when we were playing Ohio hahahahaha

    I think we can all agree that Jack Trice is the best stadium in Iowa.

    Is that a tool shed in the end zone or a methlab?

    Ah yes, never doubt the power of ISU fans in an online voting poll. Once they hear about it, it's all over.

    It's a very nice place to see a game and a beautiful drive from Cincinnati!

    I have been to games in 36 of the Stadiums and walked through 5 of the others.

    @ Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa is average, but the Tailgating is OUTSTANDING! Additionally, the Iowa State Campus is BEAUTIFUL, and the folks are just so darn nice. So, if you haven't been to Jack Trice Stadium, come up for a visit!

    My favorite Stadium and Game Experience is the Horseshoe @ Ohio State.

    For context, there was a best mascot in college sports tournament back in 2005 or 2006 on CBS sports' website.

    ISU tech students found out and flooded the link on all the message board sites and fan sites and while they got good support through the early rounds, it became apparent that it wasn't gonna be enough to win the later rounds. So their computer savvy fans took matters into their own hands.

    Suddenly, Cy was getting tens of thousands of more votes each round, way too many to simply be a generous showing of true fan support.

    Finally, for the title of best mascot in college sports, it came down to the Cyclones of Iowa State and the mighty, well-known, easily identifiable......Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina? :confused:

    Turns out ISU fans weren't the only ones spamming the polls. The voting got ridiculous, and well into the millions. If it weren't apparent that there was some tech shenanigans going on before, it was certainly clear now.

    In the end, ISU's devoted tech students were able to win the day and help the school claim CBS sports' title for best college mascot. Shortly after, a fee of the culprits admitted that they weren't real big sports fans. They just wanted to prove they could do it....and show their "school spirit".

    Eyeroll

    Iowa tailgating > ISU tailgating SmokinSmile

    However, the U of I has done a lot to help kill the tailgating scene around the stadium, and make it more for rich donors who, as one would expect, show off their set ups, more so than add to the tailgating scene.
    At least they haven't killed off the Melrose vendors yet, even though they've tried on a few occasions.

    Iowa Tailgating is OUTSTANDING TOO! Plus, I like the structure of Kinnick much better. Hope the new end zone addition doesn't kill the charm. What I think hurts Iowa compared to ISU in Tailgating is that everything is so scattered due to the locations of the Stadium.

    Never bothered me when I went to games there, as I parked and was entertained at a friend's parents house (before and after games) a short walk from Kinnick. Either way, Iowa State and Iowa both punch above their weight in the CFB Gameday experience IMHO!
