    The prom one is the only clever and funny one. The rest ball bigger than hoop, your socks united etc. are lame. Push the envelope don't have to go too far like South. Miss band last year but raise the bar a little.

    Re: How annoying is the band?

    If they want to chant, that's fine, but for the love of god find something funny to chant. "The ball is bigger than the hoop?" Singing "We're not gonna take it?" Of all the things to chant, how in the world do you settle on those two things?

    Re: How annoying is the band?

    Creativity is good but I had season tickets behind the band and it was the same, annoying chants over and over. Kudos to them for finally having creativity and coming up with some new stuff for the tourney, I love the band but the free throw chants were not unique all season long. If they are going to chant stuff during free throws, at least come up with some new things to say for each game, they have plenty of time to plan. Not trying to hate on the band, just looking for more creativity throughout the season rather than just in the tournament. It did not bother me all that much as they are usually drowned out by the crowd but when you could hear them, it was too repetitive.

    Couple problems with that. First off, they aren't allowed to direct chants at a particular player/person, so they can't use specific names or numbers. This greatly reduces the ability to be creative and come up with new things every game. One of the favorite chants of many band members was for Michael Beasley, who had listed Spongebob Squarepants as his favorite TV show on his official KState bio. The band chanted, "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? MICHAEL BEASLEY." This chant actually got Beasley to laugh while shooting a FT, and he missed it. So it's not like they haven't tried this stuff before, but if they tried that now, they'd get shot down.

    Second, the line for what "official representatives of the University" can yell/chant is a fine line. There have been many chants that have been used once or twice and then shot down by mandate of Directors/Athletics never to be heard from again. This has also, over the years, dwindled the arsenal of chants that they use.

    Finally, keep in mind that the chants aren't FOR YOU. They are directed at players, who don't hear them every game, and therefore don't find them repetitive. Chants rarely, if ever, are repeated during a game.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers
