    Confetti at basketball games?

    The last couple games, I have noticed a couple students that just launch confetti when they announce Wesley Johnson's name. It looks pretty sweet from across the arena, and it would look sweet if we could get most of the student section to do it.

    If you are one that tosses the confetti, what are you going to do this Tuesday if Wesley Johnson doesn't start?

    Anyone else see this, and does it look good from where you sit?

    Re: Confetti at basketball games?

    Id rather see some different and original things from CA. Nebraska already does the confetti many teams do the left right left right sit down after somebody fouls out its kinda of getting annoying we just copy other teams. Put all your wonderful heads together and do something original for ISU.

    Re: Confetti at basketball games?

    Well if it was coordinated with CA, wouldn't there be more than a couple people that do it??

    And how do we copy other teams in stuff? I don't think it's copying other teams, pretty much any chant is going to be done at most other schools.

    Everybody does use others chants and so on and so forth. Some school had to create it. Look at kansas with the rock chaulk jayhawk chant thats there own created by them. We have bright people at the college I say make some original ones. I just know when i go to away games or big 12 tourney games our chants are just other peoples chants minus a few words.

    What's wrong with Left Right Left Right? People like it! Who cares if we copied the chant from someone? It's likely we copied it from someone who copied it from someone else. The chain goes on forever. Should we abolish our school colors? USC already does them. So does Winthrop.

    Well those chants aren't really coined any particular schools chant. Well the other big 12 teams, are just our chant minus a few words also. Their rock chaulk jayhawk can be comparable to our "don't know the (expletive) words" or even the cyclone aerobics is original

    Re: Confetti at basketball games?

    I wasn't talking about the originoal purpose of the thread persay, rather that some posts took a negative attitude within the thread.

    Basically this thread is supposed to be a positive thread about students, and people are still managing to be negative. Thats what prompted my not so happy post


    That and the 20 negative threads that have come up in the last 2 weeks

    Re: Confetti at basketball games?

    The confetti is awesome!
    I don't care if other people use it. It's hard to come up with things that other teams aren't already doing. If you want something different, what about the "pink out", i haven't seent that one done.
    Whoever is doing the confetti, keep it up and get others to join! It looks sweet!

    Re: Confetti at basketball games?

    I went to the UCONN v PITT game this weekend and the UCONN student section all sat down and read the papers when the pitt team was announced. (they also yelled sucks after each player was named...) However once PITT was announced and the the UCONN team introductions started they all jumped up and threw the papers etc. Good transition and funny to see. I think it has been done before but I thought I would share.

    They do this at A&M also (minus the "sucks" I think), although they are standing the whole time.

    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
