    4th down cheer

    So I watched USC the other day, and the commentators mentioned something on how intimidating their 4th down song is to the opposing team. And I was thinking about Texas playing "The eyes of Texas are upon you..." for their 4th down.

    Think it's about time we get a 4th down established for ourselves.

    I talked to a couple friends and our director Mr. Smith. Kind of at a point of Lets get some tune ideas... and see what happens.

    Something kinda "congratulatory" for our defense, "taunting" to their offense, and "inviting" to our offense. Kind of a "Here comes the storm .. er cyclone".

    First idea is part of the fight song, or one of the other pregame songs - but not that intimidating, and people stand up and start clapping and get all confused.
    Second idea: "Thunderstruck" ACDC there's a couple good phrases we could play

    Any other ideas? Not promising we'll do this, just an idea we're kickin around.

    Do you know if there is any Big XII or NCAA regulations about the band playing while the game is in play?

    i love it!!!!!!


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I say we bust out a little bit of Wayne Morgan's "House of Pain." Haha, I always used to love that one.

    I am going to Mr. Smith tomorrow morning and telling him this one... That's too good to pass up.

    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.

    Big XII rules state that if the band is playing during a play, we can be called for a penalty, similar to what happens if one side's fans are being disruptive to the action. Usually, the policy we have is that we stop playing after the team breaks the huddle to come to the line of scrimmage, to avoid the penalization.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Re: 4th down cheer

    Not regarding 4th down in football, but the pep band at basketball - Why doesn't the band play "For I for S" ????? It is our second fight song that nobody knows about. When the band does play it, the students are begining to sing it, but yesturday they only played it once, before the game even started. The weekend we played 3 games, the did not play it a single time.

    I think it would be a great tradition for everyone to sing that, much like we do the fight song. The lyrics to "For I for S" are in the Cyclone Alley Handbook and I also noticed were on the Alley Rally's yesturday.

    Warder60, could you pass on the request?


    For I for S forever!

    Re: 4th down cheer

    Rooster, that's a good suggestion! I kept trying to think of a song with cylone/storm in the title but couldn't think of any, and I think that is a very recognizeable song.

    Re: 4th down cheer

    Thanks Aeroclone08 for understanding my pain. It's just tough to start a tradition when the band doesn't play along. and "For I for S" is on Page 41 in the pep band's playbook for anyone in the pep band. Pass the word, play whats on page 41!!!!!!


    For I for S forever!
