    That's another Cyclone....

    Firstdown...saw a t-shirt of this somewhere. Anyway, this is a message board and I'm going to complain, as there's nothing to complain about right now......I absolutley hate it when the announcer says that. When I saw that shirt, it honestly annoyed me. Anyone else feel this way?

    That's almost worse than the video board showing players shaking key's for a key play....man just reminds me of a highschool game, or an NAIA game.

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    i actually like 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 don't really mind it. IMO, it helps keep the crowd to make noise.

    I always feel that they should say "that's a Cyclone firstdown" for the 1st one of the game, then "that's another...." from there on out. Just my thoughts.

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    I like it. As has already been said, the crowd really gets into it I think.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    I brought my buddy to the Texas game a couple years ago and he had a great time in Ames but the only thing he took away from Cyclone football was "Boy they sure do like their first downs!"

    It almost feels like when they hold up the applause sign on the Tonight Show so they know when to cheer.


    Hey! It's all ball bearings nowadays.

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    I should have clarified. I don't mind him saying it, although would prefer if had just say Cyclone First down, buuut I just wish he wouldn't scream it over the speakers, especially at meaningless point in the football game.

    Agreed. Anything to keep the crowd noisy. What exactly is the argument against it?

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    I don't like it. But maybe that has something to do with our teams being terrible since we started doing that.

    Re: That's another Cyclone....

    I agree with cmoore - it gets the fans excited and has started be a tradition that can be unique to ISU games. And after the 15th or 16th first down, it really starts to pi$$ off the fans of the other team that happen to be in attendance! (I am a season tix holder that is lucky enough to sit in a section where the opposing teams fans buy single game tickets)

    Yeah, it is terrible. If I wanted to go to a high school game I would. Also, when he asks the crowd to cheer on defense. You know that piped in crowd environment stuff is really, really embarrassing.
