    ISU fight song on ESPN

    Don't remember hearing the ISU fight song on ESPN during the game. We all saw the ISU banner being waved after the game and we see that as a positive thing to our (important) national brand.

    WHen we watch other teams we hear THEIR fight song over and over, helping to solidify the brand in our brains.

    What's up with that?

    Re: ISU fight song on ESPN

    There are very few schools with easily recognizable fight songs. Notre Dame, Michigan, & Tennessee are the first to come to mind.

    You have to have a prestigious program to get your fight song to be popular. Not ever going to happen at ISU. But I'm okay with that.

    I heard it plenty of times. The siren was awesome too. I hope people think tornado, and not air raid, though.

    How about freaking Oklahoma. If I hear Boomer Sooner one more time I will freak. The band plays it for everything. If Bob Stoops takes a poop you can bet they play Boomer Sooner.

    The new siren/sound earned its keep at the game. The siren blared through everything.

    Great! Now I have the image of Bob Stoops pooping with the OU band playing Boomer Sooner behind him.

    Thanks a lot mac4cy!

    I hope we don't hear Boomer Sooner at all on Saturday.

    But I would like to see Bob Stoops crapping his pants on the sideline!

    If the game comes down to a Big Game Bob decision, you'll get your wish.

    Id hate being in that band (former isu band member here). Playing the same thing over and over and over again. Hell, by the end of some seasons i was bored with our fight song (between FB, MBB, WBB, and VB you play it a ********) and we didnt even play it 1/10 as much as OU plays theirs.

    I think the air raid is a cooler thing to have associated with ISU than our fight song, but that's just me.
