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.
Been trying to see if anyone has video of KC Live's reaction towards the end of the KU/ISU game. Haven't found anything on youtube to this point. Would love to watch (realize it was dark by the end of the game)
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!!!!
Dude, you are standing right next to me. What a great patio we had.
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.
I love Jeff's energy but he does not know when to quit. He always has to do another cheer until he starts losing the crowd's attention. IMHO if he would reduce all of his cheerleading session by 40% it would be more effective.
