    Dear ISU Football Marketing Department:

    --Smoke on the Water....ehhhhh. You can't dance to it and you can't clap to it. Wierd. Good for 7th grad guitar lessons and burnt out hippies to get fired up for, bad for football. I guess it would be OK as an intro to another, more exuberant and dependable theme song for jock rock.

    --Quit the stupid "first down" thing. To dovetail with all the "Act like you been there before" with our idiot ball players who invite taunting and unsportsmanship penalties, this is just bush league. The message is: our fans are too dumb to know how to cheer and clap, lets que theme. Just stupid.

    --No more Neil Diamond until after the game....like 2 hours after the game.

    --build more bathrooms. Design them to not actually increase the gridlock in the concourse food lines. I don't know if I can even go to capacity crowd games anymore this has gotten so ridiculous.

    --If coach Rhoads won't do it, please invest in a course--even a one hour lunch seminar-- that when the scoreboard shows that you are behind, you do not act like a a#$%^le every time you make a play. Hitting a reciever who is not looking in the back is not a play, and does not warrant hip hop dancing or prison hand gestures. You will sell more tickets next year when we know the young men we are fielding aren't idiots.

    What a wasted opportunity last Saturday was.....Texas is good, but there were too many players who did rise to the occaision to be let down by the few who failed.

    I would agree, but its a Rhoads thing, its not going anywhere most likely. They did however improve the timing a lot from last game to this one, shortening it down so that it started right when they were ready to come through the doors.

    --Quit the stupid "first down" thing.

    I wont agree with everything in this paragraph, but yeah, the first down thing... meh. Its cool when we're rolling, when we're having a bad game it can be a negative thing.

    --No more Neil Diamond until after the game....like 2 hours after the game.
    havent they switched that to after the game once we've won now? Im not sure i remember it on saturday.

    --build more bathrooms. Design them to not actually increase the gridlock in the concourse food lines. I don't know if I can even go to capacity crowd games anymore this has gotten so ridiculous.
    Another reason the SEZ project needs to get done at some point. That will likely include additional concessions and restrooms.

    You have some points in your post, but all credibility is lost with your nonsense. Smoke on the Water is Coach Rhoads choice its been discussed in much detail here previously.

    The first down thing is very common, I'm not sure how many college games you attend but winning programs do this as well, crowd interaction is a good thing and people get behind it.

    Neil Diamond- get over it, people like it.

    Agree we look like idiots at times, we need to get our heads out of our *****. But its impossible to sell more tickets, all games have been sell outs.

    1. I agree that Smoke on the Water kills the mood, but obviously it's Rhoads' choice.
    2. Absolutely wrong about Sweet Caroline. The entire student section gets into it and I know other members of the crowd do too. They only play it while ahead starting the fourth quarter or after a win, and the only people who don't know that are the ones who hate it.

    You have all or your answers already. They have changed to only playing sweet caroline after the game and we won, just because we aren't playing your rap doesn't mean people other people don't like and have fun with it.

    Re: Dear ISU Football Marketing Department:

    Something I would like to add to your list: Please no more ****** rap music that mentions raping people, blowing them away with a chopper, etc. I know many of the players listen to this, but there are many other rap songs to get them up for the game that aren't comedically terrible. Almost wanted to throw up listening to some of that crap before the game.

    Re: Dear ISU Football Marketing Department:

    One of the biggest problems with Smoke on the Water is the poor editing job. If you have to loop a song, at least make sure the beat matches on both sides of the splice. The crowd has enough trouble clapping to a beat as it is (see: Iowa State Fight Song).

    Re: Dear ISU Football Marketing Department:

    I'm a nobody season ticket holder for 20 years and have seen some serious ******** going over the sound system. "Smoke on the Water" is Rhoads's choice of entry music. Do I like it? Honestly I can think of better tunes to play for an opening.
    As for the "Sweet Caroline" tune, I like the way it has been moved to the end of games if we win. This song has been around for many of years with no chance of leaving.

    They haven't changed it to only after the game. It's still played if we are ahead starting the 4th quarter (If we're losing it's living on a prayer - same as last year).

    Really?

    I believe your fandom should be taken away sir. Is a bathroom line really going to keep you away from a packed Jack? If that is the case, I don't want you there anyways!
