    Twister Towels!

    Twister Towel Tradition Begins - CYCLONES.com—The Official Web Site of Iowa State University Athletics

    I know we have talked about this before but, I think if everyone brings their towel it could look pretty cool. I know the band is required to bring their towels to every game, let hope the students do too.

    Re: Twister Towels!

    I don't love nor dislike the idea. I do think it will be fun and we'll have ours at each game - just for the sole purpose of hoping other fans do and we look like one unified group.

    Re: Twister Towels!

    I'll be bringing mine...
    And I like that they're giving them out at the first game rather than homecoming!

    Re: Twister Towels!

    I think this is actually one of the best ideas marketing has ever come up with. After all what better way can the fans represent a Cyclone than with 50,000 towels swirling around. That's why we don't have a mascot dressed up in a rubber Cyclone outfit, that would look stupid. Of all the times we've seen this done before (e.g the Steelers' terrible towels), this applies best to us. If you've ever been in an arena where everyone has one of these, its actually pretty cool. It does create a little bit of a breeze.

    Re: Twister Towels!

    If the towels would make the next 6 days go faster, I would be all for it.
    Speaking of creating a breeze- I've often wondered on long FGs if 1 side of the stadium all blew out at the same time and the other half inhaled, could the path of the ball be affected?
    Would any of that be noticed other than the blowing half passing out.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Twister Towels!

    Its not that bad of an idea. Although, you have to wonder about giving them out the first game of the season. There will be a few people not making it just because it is a week night game. Although, we did have over a years notice on this one.

    I really think the UNI game would be the game to give these out. Bigger crowd.....

    Maybe all the lazy farts in my section will get off their butts and do something. I love it when they yell at us to sit down.

    I would not be surprised if any leftovers were given out at the next game. And of course, I'm sure they'll have 'em on sale. :)

    That's what I love about my section (20). Its a younger crowd with most being Varsity members. It's almost like a mini-student section because we rarely sit down. And everyone has alcohol in them so its usually a good time.

    I like the idea and would like to get mine! The only home game I'll be able to make this year will be the UNI game. Does anyone know if there is a possibility of purchasing them after the season opener?

    I am only now starting to keep my eyes open during field goals and extra points.

    A very interesting point. I would think the entire stadium might go unconscious though. The inhaling half would be breathing in all of the carbon dioxide or alcohol from the other half.

    Re: Twister Towels!

    I actually emailed Pollard on this idea last year along with giving out those thunder sticks but he mentioned to me how expensive it was to do something like that. And he brought up the free T-shirts to the students as being a cost the absorbed as well. So I'm extremely glad that he and the marketing department figured out a way to make at least the towels happen this year!

    I am section F, it is mostly families and older people. Good seats, but it is not roudy enough for me.
