    We need one of these in the north end zone

    Hand Crank Air Raid Siren 1/2 Mile

    Price is a bit steep for me. And I'm sure if I brought something like it into the stadium it would be taken pretty fast.

    Re: We need one of these in the north end zone

    I have always wondered why we don't have a tornado siren that goes off at the beginning of games or after TDs.. but somebody on here informed me that the City of Ames wouldn't allow it or something. That sucks because it would obviously be a perfect fit for a team named the Cyclones

    Now all you need is Hogan lining up his troops and Klink coming out to a saluting Schultz with probably one of the best opening themes for a television show ever!

    Seriously, ISU needs some sort of siren/storm/tornado entrance to call its own.

    City of Ames is such a joykill. If people are honestly stupid enough to think its a real warning signal, let them hide in their basements while it's going off.

    EDIT: well what if a real storm actually occured at the same time, maybe they have a point.

    From what I've understood, it's that the city doesn't want any actual storm sirens going off during a game. Those things... I don't know if they would have a case because of the use of the sound for the intro video being alright as well.

    Also, I don't think that those things are nearly as loud as the storm sirens (I"m pretty sure they need to be heard clearly 1/4 of a mile away at least)

    QFT. The diving submarine noise or whatever it was they tried a while back just didn't cut it. A couple of sirens on each end could be plenty loud and relatively inexpensive.

    Re: We need one of these in the north end zone

    I remember a couple of years back when ISU was researching the idea of a "siren" for the start of the game or running out of the tunnel, every score etc. Not only did the City not like the idea, the University was not for it as well. Too much political crap going on there.

    The submarine sound is better than nothing IMOP. I would love a true tornado siren but I can understand the concerns.

    Disagree. Id rather have nothing than have the submarine sound. The stadium isnt preparing for dive.

    Re: We need one of these in the north end zone

    If the city is worried about people thinking it's a tornado, then what's the concern? That they would run to their basements and not be killed by an imaginary tornado?? It's not like cities all across the state don't fire up theres every Saturday at Noon to test it. Are they afraid someone might break a hip rushing down there stairs to escape pending doom only to find out it was just a Cyclone touchdown?? This whole debate is so tired. Just give the fans what they want!

    This is something Iowa State lacks is a lot of gameday tradition. This siren would be an awesome tradition that can be started. I don't understand how the university would be opposed. How is the real thing different then the siren played in the intro video? Maybe because of Jack Trice's terrible sound system, it is an exception because people will know it came from the stadium and not a real siren.

    Yeah, a siren would be cool, but I don't ever see it happening.
