    Plea to Cyclone Alley Central

    Please do not mimic the Utah State Victory "Winning Team, Losing Team" Cheer. That is USU's and not ours, and I don't wanna take other people's traditions. Let's be creative and think of our own victory chants. Also, Cyclone Power is not for opponent introduction; 5 clap is already an Iowa State tradition not done anywhere else. Let's be Iowa State; not everyone else.

    Re: Plea to Cyclone Alley Central

    You mean they did the "winning team, losing team" chant?
    Please say no....

    Re: Plea to Cyclone Alley Central

    While we are at it...

    Dear Cyclone Alley,

    **** you for making it mandatory to buy a SAA membership when signing up for CA.

    I hate SAA, was a member my freshman year and didn't get anything out of it. I don't want to be in SAA and I shouldn't be forced to join to sit in CA.

    What a joke.

    You are saying you expect the "leaders" of cyclone alley to stick to ISU tradition? And to be original and not steal chants when they want to bring in new things? You ask too much.

    Agreed, thought it was a pretty pathetic attempt at it too. Don't want to see that chant at ISU games at all.

    Embarrassing. I hope they never do it again.

    The chant went terribly tonight. It could definitely get better in the future.

    Chants get stolen all the time, it's not a huge deal IMO. If I remember correctly the student section attempted a (very feeble) rendition of "Winning Team, Losing Team" at the Texas Tech football game.

    It failed epicly. It didn't help that nobody could remember the words and that the PA announcer was talking while they tried to do it.

    Exactly. Stick to 5 claps, what they did tonight sucked.

    Re: Plea to Cyclone Alley Central

    You guys are a bunch of whiny *******.

    We should also get rid of The Hey Song, Sandstorm, Zombie Nation, Jump Around, and everything else that was ever done at another school before ISU tried it.

    Who cares. Find something else to complain about.

    If they truly did away with the five claps *you suck*, that is sad. The entire arena does that and has been doing that for years. Please tell me they didn't do away with that.

    They didn't. Cyclone Alley tried a cyclone power during it but it was trumped by the 5 claps and you suck.

    But I don't think we should do that cheer since somebody probably has done it before and it isn't original to ISU.
