    Engineers: What would it take to make a vortex on the field?

    I see that dry ice the players run through out on to the field - What would it take to turn that into a vortex?

    Anyone have experience w/ the tornado machine in Howe Hall?

    I'm just curious. Discuss...

    ...wind?


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    It's easy. We did it at the beginning of the ISU vs CU game once. I'm not sure why they never did it again.

    I have thought about this too. It would be awesome if the team ran out of some sort of vortex! I also thought at night, adding some laser effects onto the vortex as well. Now, that would be BA!

    It would take me getting a payment of 1 million dollars. And then I'll tell you.

    after that, can we put a pirate ship in our endzone? Oh, Tampa Bay already did that? Something else then, equally lame.

    This gets brought up all the time... PEOPLE IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. NOT FEASIBLE. HOW LAME, ESPECIALLY WITH A LASER SHOW?

    Some of you could make a great consultant for lame minor league baseball promotions.

    I'm not asking if it WILL HAPPEN, or if YOU THINK its lame.

    I'm asking anyone who has specific knowledge of the simulators if its POSSIBLE.

    so bite me...
