    I didn't include Sweet Caroline because it's already been a part of Gameday for seveal years now.

    All three things above are new this year.

    I have never understood the Nickelback hate. Almost seems like it is one of those things people hate just for the sake of hating it.

    Positive note: The marching band intro video is absolutely awesome.

    Agree on all three.

    Nickelback sucks, but the song is good for the video.

    The Nickelback song is actually pretty great for the video, but Nickelback just sucks so hard it's tough to get past.

    Nickelback is the Nickelback of crappy rock. Oh, wait...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Three Things That Should be Part of...

    I like all 3 things. I don't mind switching up the highlight video music every year though. It might get kind of boring if we kept the same thing for that every year.

    Put me in the club of people who don't get the hate for Nickelback. I'm not really a fan, but I can say with 100% certainty that a large amount of the people who are so adamant about hating them just hate them just because people think it is the cool thing to do.

    Re: Three Things That Should be Part of...

    i agree on the second 2 but the nickleback song will get old after a year or two. Thats why they will change it. The other two I hope they dont. The Cyclone Weather Alert really gets people fired up, and I hope some marketing intern doesnt get a whild hair up their *** that they want to change it for something better....




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Re: Three Things That Should be Part of...

    One of the major reasons I said to keep the opening song is because we change it every year, but three people have now said it will get old being played every year.

    So, if that is the majority opinion, fine.

    I'm glad all want to keep Cyclone Weather Alert and Marching Band entrance video.

    Nickelback is "Metal music for girls..." They're pretend to be way more bad as* than they are, hence the hate.

    Regarding the marching band video - I've never, ever been into anything by the band (just not my thing) and I have to agree - the marching band intro video was really great... keep.

    Re: Three Things That Should be Part of...

    Count me as one of those Nickleback haters... there's no explaining how much I hate the band's music. I tried liking them once by listening to an album of theirs... I just couldn't make it through. I'm sorry. Not trying to be cool, not trying to be part of the "it" thing... they just suck.

    I do like the Nickleback intro though. It goes very well with the video. I think all that needs to change about the current game intro is changing Smoke on the Water out with Thunderstruck. Aside from that, I think it's one of the best intros we've ever had for football.
