    Question If You Could Change One Thing For ISU FB 2008...

    If you could change one thing about the atmosphere or planning of the upcoming football season, what would it be?

    By that I mean, what about game-day (other than the final score, etc) that could be changed, would you most like to see changed?

    Please keep it serious as it's interesting to see what people don't like about the festivities.

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Have the words "Sweet Caroline" engraved in the goalpost like the cubbies have the words "Hey Hey" on their foul poles.

    Obviously, sell out every game, and have fun fans from other teams come and tailgate with us.

    No more Jeff Johnson leading cheers.

    The fact I'd rather hear Sweet Caroline than Jeff leading cheers speaks volumes.

    I was going to say no more Neil Diamond, but evidently I'm in the minority.

    I would change that stupid "Tornado Warning" sound they play before the game...

    Also, he might be the nicest guy on earth, but can we keep this guy off the field at all times. And if not, can we please not give him a microphone.

    More people in the stadium at the start of the game as the team comes on the field allowing us to have a sweet entrance

    I don't like the lame entrance music. We have a pretty damn good band. Let's get a tradition going where we let them play the team onto the field with some kind of crowd participation, fight song or something like that.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    - no more Thursday night games
    - no more smoke machine during the players entrance
    - no more drunks walking around in the stands with bottles and cans of whatever
    - have everyone in their seats to cheer the team off the field after warm-ups
    - have everyone sing the fight song and the national anthem
    - put better quality sound system with speakers all around the stadium
    - get everyone to meet the team bus for the spirit walk, so that the tunnel of people goes all the way to Hilton

    I would agree with most of those.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
