    Virginia Tech intro music etc.

    Did any else see the intro that Virginia Tech had Thursday night when they played Maryland on ESPN? It gave me goosebumps. The cranked Enter Sandman, then band formed a tunnel for the team and started jumping up and down along with the rest of the statium. Easily the best entrance I have ever seen, wish we could come up with and pull off something similar. One thing I know we need to upgrade for sure is our sound system, please Jamie pump some money into that.

    Are we still using the Jock Jams CD? (if we are that needs to go first)

    I don't think Jack Trice has enough speakers. The only speakers that music comes out of are on the scoreboard. I'd like to see quality speakers put in throughout the stadium so we can have an enhanced gameday atmosphere.

    Virginia Tech...they do things the right way. Can you imagine being a recruit and watching that? My nephew is being recruited by a few schools right now and believe me, that stuff matters.

    Their fans are also a lot more into it than at JTS.

    The last time I heard Sandman was at Kansas in 2005. I prefer not to hear it again.

    Re: Virginia Tech intro music etc.

    If we want to improve our intro we could start by getting rid of Jeff Johnson.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I think a good football team would take care of this.
