    Re: New Tunnel Graphic

    I wondered if they would do something to make the tunnel look more appealing. I like it! I hope there are more surprises with the tunnel entrance this year!

    That looks pretty awesome though I did giggle a bit at "take the field". Hopefully the guys passing through there are already aware that is the plan.

    Im pretty sure that there is a double entendre meant from "take the field", as in "command the field" or "dominate the landscape", etc.

    Oh, and that entrance is brilliant!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I know, I just was making a joke. Though I do think that a big "I WILL" would have been cooler I don't have any problem with "Take the field".

    I WILL would have been awesome. I think we should change our official saying from "ALL IN" to "I WILL".

    Lends itself to neat plays on it in slogans and shirts: I WILL win/compete/fight whatever.

    Agree. "All In" is Paul Rhoads. And I love Paul Rhoads but it is still his slogan, not Iowa State University's slogan. "I Will" is Jack Trice. And that is timeless. Head coaches, even great ones. come and go. But Jack Trice and his words are forever. 100 years from now the locker room speeches will be gone, but Jack's letter to himself will remain.

    Maybe "I will" can go along side "I'm so proud" and eventually replace the Chizik era "All in."

    Also, the ISU Athletics Facebook page deleted this... I wonder if they meant for this to get out. Oh well. Ha. It would get out eventually.

    Looks great! I still wish they would extend the tunnel all the way to the field though.

    Yeah, I was there the first time they rolled it out--it seemed weird. I mean, I guess it's better than the blow up tunnel, especially now, but the new tunnel seemed anti-clamactic to me at the time.

    Our whole entrance needs overhauled. The walk up is way too long, too old school (Sorry CPR), and should be better. I was a huge fan of what we had my fresh/soph year where they played Ladies and Gentlemen to a hit tape. Though the song that was specifically done last year for ISU by TechN9ne is pretty badass too. That, with the severe storm warning that they play is cool, but it can be better.
