    Re: How many layers today?

    Seriously? Wow. It's not going to be THAT cold... I've seen people preparing like it's going to be -30 and a blizzard.

    I'm wearing a compression shirt, thermal shirt, long-sleeved shirt and t-shirt on top, and compression shorts, thermal pants, (thin) shorts, knee-length socks, and my cardinal-and-gold coveralls (unless I decide that I'm not showing enough color). I'll have gloves along, but they're forest green, so I won't be wearing them much. All the rest of my winter stuff is stuck at home until next weekend. In all likelihood, I will be too warm, but I'm prepared to de-layer.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: How many layers today?

    I'm thinking along the same lines:

    Bottom:

    Long johns
    Shorts
    2 pairs Knee socks
    short socks
    Insulated wind pants
    Foot warmers
    Winter hiking boots

    Top:
    Underarmor
    tshirt
    long sleeve t
    hoodie
    columbia coat w/ hood
    gloves
    scarf
    hand warmers

    add to that a stocking cap and maybe a scarf and we'll be set to face the day!

    I'm thinking about Missouri '04 when I was in the band and just got to wear my uniform and whatever i could fit underneath, which wasnt much.

    Gotta feel for the band/spirit squad today. No gloves or hats for performance time for band members. That's a coooold march from hilton to JTS.

    That's why I said "taking/wearing" and it's layers. I can always take off, but I can't go back and get more

    Missouri '06 was pretty brutal, too. Why is it always freaking cold when we play Missouri and Colorado?

    I'm not worried about the cheerleaders or dancers; they've got a dozen different uniform pieces that keep them warm. The band, however, has nothing. I'll be out there without gloves on, in solidarity of my poor cymbal-playing friends. I don't miss having my hands strapped to freezing metal plates for 4 hours in games like this!

    Nearly identical to what I'm doing, including the hand warmers. Only problem is nothing on my outter layers says Cyclones. Oh well. I'd rather be there and be warm.

    '06 was cold, but NOTHING like '04. I think in '04 it was around 18 degrees at kickoff with wind chills in the 0-8 degree range. This was the Saturday after Thanksgiving, as well. So, we're talking 3 weeks later in the season.

    Band members had to come the Friday before to rehearse (thankfully, the AD let us practice in Bergstrom) for 3 hours. Then we sat through the cold, wind and (at times) snow to watch us fail in OT.

    One of the other snare drummers cut his hand during pregame and was bleeding pretty good. He didn't realize until much later because he couldn't feel his hands due to the temp outside.

    I've only been going to ISU games for 5 years and I'm sure others have seen worse, but Mizzou '04 was by far the coldest/most miserable game I've been to.

    Double OT if I recall right, and that was pretty miserable.

    And for some reason, nobody would stand with-in 10' of me, so I didn't have any windblocks

    The snow from the flurries quit melting on my skin... (ok it'd melt, it'd just take a minute or so... literally)

    Why can't the band members where gloves? Looks like the KU band is...

    We have white gloves required for the uniform. But they aren't designed to be warm. Can wear another light glove underneath, but anything heavy duty impacts ability to play the instrument. Clarinets have it worse since the fabric of gloves doesn't let them create seals on the keys. They have to cut the finger tips off.

    I would wear 2 pairs of the uniform gloves with a handwarmer stuck inside. Of course, I was a freshman in 04. It took that Mizzou game to teach me that.
