    One point from last nights game...

    PLEASE....rid ourselves of our "tired, played out player intro's." Its the same ole song...started about 5 seconds too late...it's like someone started the song and forgot to turn up the volume.

    We have a new scoreboard, new video ring, plus a new sound system...give us something!

    I personally like the new football intro and entrance...its a step in the right direction.

    We have such an advantage with Hilton...why not get the crowd going absolutely nuts.

    Any thoughts? Anyone else tired of this?

    GO STATE

    If they had to change the intro music, I'd want them to change it to Thunderstruck. I'm still sold that replacing the "Thunder!" chant with "Cyclones!" would send chills up and down my spine. Get Cyclone Alley to chant this, and the rest of the arena will catch on.

    Even so, I like the current intro. It's about the only time those darn old folks will actually stand up in unison. That and the fight song. And when the game comes down to the wire. (Anyone else notice the fight song thing?)


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Thunderstruck would sound cool like that. I think they should do the strobes like the Bulls always did with MJ. That would rock the place but I am guessing it is too much for a college team.

    Marquette turns off the lights and has a couple lights flashing around the arena. The place gets pretty loud and it's pretty cool to see.

    The lights in Hilton take too long to come back on after they go out. Sounds cool though!

    Pollard said in an interview that the new scoreboard and ring are going to take some time to understand how to utilize fully. Hopefully as the season goes on we see more and more.

    That would be cool though with the lights out and all you see is the scoreboard screens and the ring flashing.
