    Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    Not sure what others think, but I prefer watching the warmups to having someone with a mike that's too loud leading cheers. Maybe everyone else loves it. I'd like other opinions.

    Re: Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    i can do without him, i remember 2 years ago nebraska game, the nebraska fans aroun us were making fun of him. kind of embarassing. i think by now everyone knows the cheers and can do the "Cyclone Power" cheer on our own. and sometimes he does the cheers either faster or slower and messes everyone up.

    That would be Jeff Johnson, President of the Iowa State University Alumni Association.

    Personally I like the guy. He is high energy and I thought he did a great job. I would bring him back. Who cares what opposing fans say. That isn't what he is there for.

    Re: Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    Anyway, the first year he did that, he was on the field about 10 minutes. Last year it was down to 5 or less. I'll be surprised if we see him much from this point on because they do know that we know the cheers.

    BTW, actually hearing "Cyclone Power" catch on and being used during the game was amazing.

    I have to: "We aren't going to show you a picture of Jeff Johnson, because you know what Jeff Johnson stands for. Vote for Jeff Johnson." (or something like that)

    I like him too, but he can be kind of a butthead in person at 3AM when you're working.

    Re: Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    Glad someone beat me to it... get it right people. I can't remember names for **** and I know it's Jeff Johnson, president of the Alumni Association that lead the cheers.


    As for do I want him doing it? No. If I showed up at another school and saw that I'd never let them hear the end of it. I mean maybe have him come out and give a pregame speech about how we're going to pound the oppents into the ground and then have him start a cheer and leave when the crowd has picked it up maybe, but I'm still not sure I'd want that.


    Besides, he tries to control the rythm of the cheers, and he's usually a bit slow compared to how the crowd is trying to do it.


    As for Cyclone Power, now that people are familliar with it (having succesfully stolen it from other teams...) I don't think we need him to lead it. All we need are the cheerleaders to leave their signs where this idiot can get to them

    Re: Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    In any case, I'm with 62. The first year of having him on the field was really, REALLY awkward. I think the big part of it was that the cheers they tried to get going kind of sucked. I mean...

    CARDINAL!
    GOLD!
    CARDINAL!
    GOLD!

    and my all-time favorite...

    CY-
    CL-
    ON-ES!

    AWKWARD PAUSE!

    CYCLONES!
    CYCLONES!
    GO STATE!

    I do love that Cyclone Power has caught on. I also think that I-S-U will be a LOT easier once the south endzone is bowled in. The one thing I would love to hear is akin to what Virginia Tech does:

    One Side: LET'S GO!
    Other Side: CYCLONES!

    Re: Do you want the guy doing the pregame cheers back?

    He may want to come up with some new cheers:

    Trash the ===B Red.
    Squash the=== J Hawks.
    Trounce the ===Tigers.
    Mash the ===Mildcats.
    Trample ===the Buffs.
    Stuff the ===H Bird.
    Douse the ===Dakotas.

    Just use a little humor.

    Now if you want to get personal:
    Mark is the Man And the Gino. (Which is why he is so big.)

    No, NO mention of Kansas or the J-Hawks. Pay back for leaving us out of their fight song. They don't want to acknowledge us, we won't acknowledge them
