    Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    I also have an idea for when the team runs out onto the field for the first time.... just hear me out....this could get crazy...just open your mind.

    (You know how everyone uses "smoke"/dry ice now for entrances? I think Miami started that whole trend? We need something unique..because right now we don't look original at all.) Why not build a device that funnels it (the smoke) into a tornado/cyclone looking thing...I mean, this is an engineering school...someone would be able to come up with something....

    Also, we need to do something with Cy. **This is like when Colorado runs with the Buffalo for the enterance.**
    -(Now we still have the "Tornado-Bird" logo as a secondary logo....) Why not build a device that Cy the mascot can get into and drives, but here is the ticker... it is spinning from his waist down...making him look like a cyclone. All Cy would have to do is pump his fist and lead the team on the field. I think it would be funny/then could become real cool. You know, our thing. If some engineer could build that I think that would be sweet.

    I mean OU has the sooner schooner...Wake Forest's demon deacon drives out on a motorcyle...that was original...Does Texas come out with Bevo? USC has the white horse thing... FSU has the Indian thing... this could be ISU's thing?

    Thoughts?

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    Both the USC and FSU mascot thing happens well before the team comes out...

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    Maybe they could enclose the tornado/cyclone in a large clear cylinder that is attached to the CY-mobile with CY driving. A real life cyclone mascot.

    Just a thought.

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    My thoughts were posted on the other thread you started which asked the exact same question... So if you need to different threads for this one question, I will cut and paste for you..


    "I can't imagine them making a Cyclone wind machine for the athletic department. Would cost way too much and it would be hard to do in an open air situation. If the wind is blowing forget about the smoke making a "Cyclone" type of display.

    As far as Cy driving something out... That would be completely cheesy. Driving a tornado car would look way too cartoonish... I think they are trying to get away from that stuff lately.

    Even though we are the Cyclones, Cy is a bird... I have to admit I love how Iowa carries Herky in.. Too bad we didn't think of something like that. "

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    How about a segway rigged up with a spinning Cy bottom that Cy could drive around the sidelines before and during the game.....turning him into the logo.

    I was just thinking about the Segways. Didn't Iowa State University invent the segway? I am sure that I heard that somewhere? It would really turn him into that logo.

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    I like the spinning smoke idea.. and I think it could be done somehow.

    But the Cy on a vehicle that looks like a tornado is kinda rediculous.. but it made me laugh.

    Re: Cyclones Entrance: Taking the Field

    In a perfect world....

    We have a dome, turn out the lights and have a light show simulating a nasty storm... The sound of wind blows, news cast on jumbotron, sirens and then the team comes out...

    Cy used to drive around in a big CYclone football helmet golf cart. That was pretty cool

    No. Segways are not cool. That would not be cool at all.
