    Opening football game

    I would love to find out a way that we as Clones can get a more energetic, and pumped up music for the opening Clones football game. Something with energy, excitment,hard, and gets the crowd into it.

    any ideas, and music choice that we can submit for a poll to Pollard?

    Re: Opening football game

    Banning Sweet Caroline from being played at all would be a good start.

    I kind of like what Nebraska does, especially at their basketball games where they play their "pump up" music right before the team comes back out to play after a break in the game. Seems like at Hilton when someone calls a full timeout right when Hilton is rocking they play the jock jams and everyone is up clapping then once the music stops everyone is tired of clapping and sits back down once the play resumes. Got to keep that kind of energy going when the team is on the court or field.

    I don't know why people don't like Sweet Caroline. People were so enraged at various points in my section last year and they would play that and a simple joy would appear on their faces. I honestly think it prevented outright rioting.

    It's one thing to play it when there are actually "good times" to celebrate. You won't hear many complaints then. But when a team like Kent State or UNI is beating us and it's played, people want to take a sledge hammer to the PA system.

    I like this song but think it has no place in a football game. That said, while people just sit around during other songs they have tried it does seem to at least get the students moving and people seem to enjoy it. So, I am willing to concede I am wrong and we probably should continue to use it.

    I agree with this...It should be our winning at the end of the third song. Now we need a "need a comeback" song at the end of the 3rd. Maybe Rocky...I saw this used last season...maybe it was louisville or WV game but it worked and fit and sounded awesome.

    I think "Blow Me Away" by Breaking Benjamin would be a sweet intro

    Anyone who sings to Sweet Caroline while down to UNI in the 2nd half isn't serious about ISU football. Enough said.

    hmm, check the calendar, ahh yes, late march, it must be the doldrums of the off-season with football intro and game-time music being discussed...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Or still really drunk.

    I don't like our Chicago Bulls music when we come out but then it goes into the Gladiator-type music and that's really good IMO. We should just use that when the players are coming out.
