    Props to the band

    I have been a critic but I have to say that it seems like the fight song has been played less. And I like the effort on cowbell today.

    Nice job out of you.

    Most of the time we (the students) love the cowbell. All of Hilton just didn't seem that energized today. Not exactly sure why

    Probably because the game was really never in doubt. Get the same feel for a lot of noncon games.

    Re: Props to the band

    I'll be honest, I didn't realize it was cowbell at first, the way the band played it today was new (to me) and it was awesome, the bass guitar sounded awesome! Once everyone caught on, all of us students were into it! Hope they continue to play it, because I loved it!!!!

    That's because it is slightly different without the tenor solo. Kind of goes back the original roots of cowbell. Hopefully it catches on with everybody soon!

    I mentioned this in the postgame thread, but seems appropriate to post here as well: nice song choice playing Price Tag by Jessie J at the end for A&M.

    Re: Props to the band

    I think it was more for my friends and I that we think it's kind of a football tradition at least at Iowa State. We didn't really get into it because it sounded off without 10k students doing it and in a closed stadium.
