    Keys

    What ever happened to shaking your keys at kick off? How did it end?

    What brings on this question??

    The game tonight is in Oklahoma, thus there is not an Iowa State student section in attendance...

    Re: Keys

    I normally just shake my keys when we kickoff, since except for the beginning of the halves, we would have just scored. I don't like to shake them after they score, when they would be kicking off.

    Re: Keys

    It stands for a "key-play" ...that's how it started. A kick-off or punt, or usually a special teams play is the type of "key-play" that could make a drastic swing in the game. Albeit field position, or a botched snap or catch, anything that can totally alter the flow of the game. And yes, only on "key-plays" do we do this. (Not because we don't have a cowbell, or it's a good luck thingy) We didn't invent it either. Other schools around the country have been performing the ritual every game as well.
