    The Siren

    At first, wasn't so sure, but now love it...below is a link where you can get your own wav file of a similar siren, maybe you send this all of your Hawk friends this week, or set it to you Ipod Alarm Clock, or perhaps use it on some of the call in shows this week...

    Federal Signal #5

    That's a noon whistle. A little farther down the page is the tornado siren:

    I love the ****ing siren. I was ambivalent after UNI... now it's a huge part of gameday atmosphere IMO. Don't know why, it just is.

    The warning at the beginning of the game was awesome.

    Yep, that warning is sweet, though they need to start it later (not cover up the band playing) and shorten the whole walk through the jacobsen bldg\smoke on the water part. The crowd is fired up when the warning comes through, and that long SoTW part kills things a bit.

    And yes, the sirens are a major improvement. Something that really screams 'cyclones' that adds to our gameday experience. Its kind of amazing it wasnt done years ago.

    Re: The Siren

    I think they need to walk down the side of the building like they used to, seeing the football team definitely jacks up the student section much more than the Jacobson Building.

    I totally agree about the walk killing the momentum. The place just dies while they get that set up and start walking.

    Re: The Siren

    The walk through the Jacobson building would be a lot better if they used a better song. I know I am beating a dead horse but seriously, Smoke on the Water is just too slow and the loops sucks. Give me something with a faster beat that makes me want to run through a brick wall. I'd rather have some 90's Jock Jams (like Twilight Zone during the Mac years) than smoke on the water.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Keep winning football games and they can play "Party in the USA" while they walk out for all I care.

    Now, why the HELL did whoever is in charge of the audio play that yesterday?

    At the begining of the game on the big screen, they put a poll up for what song do fans want to hear during the third q? I believe... and people had to text..... thus, the one with the most "texts" wins.


    Party in the USA

    Livin on a Prayer

    Tick Tock?

    etc...

    I voted Livin'.... denied.
