    Re: No Cyclone Weather Warning

    And what if the weather has moved out of the area for the game? The UNI game last year was on a gray and rainy day. If the only thing we're dealing with is a little rain (or no weather at all around gametime) why wouldn't they play it? I sure hope they do, I'd love to intimidate their fan base haha. (Mr. KSU Mask would probably **** himself.)

    Hahaha. This thread is cracking me up. Like their reason is to make sure people don't think it's real and leave early.. yeah, I don't think they give a **** about that. I'm pretty sure they're more concerned with this scenario:

    Idiot 1 turns to idiot 2: "Way to go on the sirens boys.. We got a first down, not a touchdown. What is this, amateur hour?"

    As Kansas State fans head for the exits....

    Idiot 2: "Look at those morons! They think there's a real storm. The storm is about to hit..his name is Jeff Woody! Up top!" (Idiot 2 holds up arm for high five)

    Idiot 1: "Does that look like a tractor to you?"

    Except if that's the case, the damage is already done from having the sirens at every other game. The fact is we have a mega sound system now that if needed can be cranked up high enough that everyone in the tailgating lots can even hear direct evacuation orders if it was called for.

    There's a billion-watt PA system. Plus the refs and teams will be bailing out. No one at JTS will get caught by surprise, unless they are flat out inebriated.

    They are worried about "get off my lawn" and "civic-minded" types in Ames who might get confused, but definitely will complain to law enforcement.

    Here's what APD will get to hear:
    "That siren went off, and I ran to the basement, and could have been injured running down the stairs! "

    "What about all the children who will be confused and need counseling for stress due to the sirens? Ohhh, the children! We need 3 busloads of stress counsellors immediately!"


    LET ME SIREN BLOW.

    How long do our sirens play? Maybe 10-15 seconds. If they can't wait 10-15 seconds to see if it is real or just the Cyclones kicking some more *** then screw them.

    Re: No Cyclone Weather Warning

    I'll be honest, I thought it was real at first last year at the UNI game. I survived the Colorado game of 2005, so I kept my calm..
