    Pre Game Video

    I really like the timeline video. But the new video we have of this years players is way too long IMO. We probably have 2-3 min of video before our starting lineups, which is way too long.

    Thoughts?

    For now. Kansas' pre game video is probably 45 seconds, ours is too drug out.

    its all very awkward.

    -the transition between the video we had for the first part of the season and the new material is awkward
    -why 2 completely contrasting videos? Just seems hacked together.
    -the music is played too softly and has no beat to it, doing nothing to get the crowd involved
    -The whole thing is too long.

    Agreed. I think it was better with just the first "tradition" video.
    The Brackins dunk at the end is a perfect, climactic finish.

    I also feel that we need to add another one bites the dust after every victory to get some swagger created for this team.

    The video could still change....

    After the first few games last year - I emailed Mary Pink - ISU Marketing, and expressed the "lack" of excitment around the music for the intro. Remember last year's? It was around for the first few games, then got changed the rest of the year to the special Iowa intro - the one with the little kid.

    Mary forwared my request to "Mike Green"? I could be wrong there, but a bunch of us did this and at least "some" action was done.

    Seriously - it's all about timing. OK highlights, OK song...wrong time to do it.

    Not only that....but ISU is married to canned pump up music after timeouts when we have gone a big run. Ever notice that? Nothing deflates a crowd after a big run...then some canned - bad - pump up music. Not only that...it doesn't seem like anyone can edit on the fly. If you are going to do that kind of music - find the right one that fits within the context of a sudden timeout.

    This just blows my mind how bad this has become...how predictable and sterile.

    Flood the AD Marketing inbox....it worked last year. Just keep what they had early this year. Or bring back "Let it Rock". Most really liked that one...good song, good beat to clap to, could easily thread in highlights.

    It's unbelievable that this happen's every year...just stick with what works, start a tradition.

    LINK? By the way, if this thing does miss the mark, what can you expect from a marketing dept who thinks the way to fire up the football team is the play "Sweet Caroline?"

    Another game, another terrible intro sequence, another thread on CF. Is this stuff run by undergrads? That is a serious question.

    What is the name of the song That plays during the video before starting lineups?



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.
