    New Bball Intro....

    Um....not great.

    First off...I get the tornado siren and when done right...is a great way to start off a intro. So when we blast the siren...it was followed by a waaay to many highlights, set to music with NO beat.

    As cheezy as the Jock Jams was, at least it got folks clapping in unison. The music was blah and everyone sat there until the normal music kicked in, very awkward.

    Are these intro's tested on people before released?

    Last year's was waaay better, BRING IT BACK!!! Let it Rock was pretty good...I remember the KU game, the crowd was going nuts at the end.

    I thought the video was alright but the music needs to be changed.

    The Sirens were great (they still need to fix the speakers though, we can't hear/undrestand anything on our side of the court) The highlights from the exhibition gamres were great!


    The music after the sirens....just seemed misplaced.

    Somebody should take video of the full intro and post for those of us that can't make it to any basketball games for awhile.

    I am not a fan of the highlight video. I wish they would keep the tornado siren and show something else.

    Re: New Bball Intro....

    I thought it was awesome music. "The Pretender" (Foo Fighters) is a much better pump up song than "Smoke on the Water".

    Decent song...but not in the context of getting a crowd jacked up. Need a little beat yo...

    Re: New Bball Intro....

    It's not perfect, but it's definitely better than what we have for football. I love "Smoke on the Water," but it does not even come close to fitting.

    Re: New Bball Intro....

    Yeah something needs to change, I didnt mind it, but it deffinately didnt get the crowd going, Lights dimming and a spot light or somthing would be prty awsume. Even tho its not a good intro, while watching i did say i would like that as my screen saver!
