    A little gift for Cyclone Nation!

    Hey all,

    I was in KC for the entire tournament and recorded this bit of the pep rally before the Big 12 Championship game. I've watched it many time since then and it still makes the hair on my arms stand up and tears form in my eyes. This is what it means to be a Cyclone and was one of the best pep rallies ever.



    I love you Cyclone Nation! Bring on the NCAA's baby!!!!

    I cried a little, but it could still be from finding out likes are going away.

    His best line was cut off...

    "Welcome to Kansas City, IA!"

    I'm up on that balcony you panned across, standing on the base of a pillar so that I can see (I'm rather altitudinally challenged...).

    Re: A little gift for Cyclone Nation!

    That video reminds me how much more Jeff Johnson we need. Before each game in Hilton. Before every football game. Take him on the road. Put him on TV.


    HHEEEYYYYY EVERYBODY!!! I............ S...... U. I cant hear you! I......... S ...........U.

    Were you there after the game when the dumb *** MC said they were going to change the name from KANSAS CITY to IOWA CITY!

    Needless to say Cyclone Nation let him have it

    I loved having him lead cheers before the football games. I've missed that.

    Re: A little gift for Cyclone Nation!

    I was there and it still makes my damn hair stand up and my eyes water. Good fricken stuff right there. Another thing I noticed is the amount of people pounded beers/drinks in the span of that video. Ya, We party.

    Nope...missed that. We headed back to Iowa after the award ceremonies. I hope you really let him understand the error of his ways...

    Ugh. No. No no no no no. At major athletic events, we have the band, large student section, pre-game music and intro videos to pump us up. With Jeff Johnson, the cheering seems...forced. I don't doubt the man's passion for all things Iowa State, and he's done great things with the alumni association. I'm glad, though, that he isn't leading pre-game cheers anymore.
