    Intro

    My 2nd worst fear came true tonight, (as did my first when we lost) in that our intro was bad. Very bad. I don't think most people knew it was even occurring. There was no build up, all of a sudden the team was just running onto the field. I much preferred the clapping techno.

    So... what did everyone else think?

    Re: Intro

    It was really bad...I would rather hear the mortal combat theme than Sirius played too quietly. That was just pitiful.

    Re: Intro

    I like the song choice, it felt like I was at the Bulls game but the lead up and anticipation need to be a lot better.

    Re: Intro

    So what song was playing, and what happened? I couldn't hear anything over John Walter's voice on CloneZone.

    Re: Intro

    I liked it. Going from Mortal Kombat to the fight song has always been awkward, and this was a smoother transition. I think the students were more fired up because it was Gene Chizik's first game. I got there about 40 minutes to kickoff, and had trouble finding seats because the place was so packed.

    Sadly, it'll probably be a lot easier finding seats next weekend. :(

    It was sirius by alan parsons, but it was played too quietly, and just did not seem to get anyone fired up. Mortal Kombat was better.

    I liked it once I knew that it was even happening, but it was WAY too quiet.

    Flag Guy, Superfan and I were one of the first ones in the gates, and got to the front row. I didn't even turn around until about 90 minutes later, and was pleasantly shocked to see every last bench assigned to students completely filled in- even the top corners that are so often empty! People were absolutely packed in; it was awesome to see.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Intro

    After seeing Husker intros, it just seemed like a weak replica. I am not a fan of this intro at all!!!

    I was impressed with how the student section filled up this week, but I doubt it'll last, especially with the loss. Sad but true...
    I'm sure the section will fill, but I doubt I'll be as worried about getting my seat

    Re: Intro

    So did we get rid of the big helmet and just kept the caterpillar? I think we could have done a better intro. I'm sure next time they will turn up the music

    Re: Intro

    As the football was, so was the intro.

    Weak, ill-timed and just ugly.

    Re: Intro

    Not a big fan of the intro. From where I was sitting I could barely hear it. I thought they might do something cool on the scoreboard after the team came out. Disappointing.

    I thought it was fun that they followed the team from the locker room (or somewhere in Jacobson anyways) to the field with the camera - however the music was weak
