    Need a band geek

    ...and I mean that in the most respectful way. I still play my trumpet every onceinawhile.

    I've been looking around and can't find a recording of the song played after a first down. Need it to settle a bet. Anyone know where I can find it?

    Got this from a trumpet player, if you just need the notes:

    D-E-D-G

    Eb-F-Eb-Ab

    E-F#-E-A

    F-G-F-Bb-B-C

    Re: Need a band geek

    That answers it actually. And I lose. I swore they only played it twice before the "I-S-U!" but it looks like 3

    Yea. It's 3 times through. 1 and 2 are go Cyclones. 3rd is the I-S-U.

    Yes, that's what I thought. But these trumpet notes are 3 times through, then the last run before ISU
    bah bah bah bahhhhhh- GO CYCLONES!

    bah bah bah bahhhhhh- GO CYCLONES!

    bah bah bah bah bah bahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    I-S-U!

    Is it that or is there one more time in there?

    Eb-F-Eb-Ab (Go Cyclones!)
    E-F#-E-A (Go Cyclones!)
    F-G-F-Bb-B-C (I-S-U!) Where the "I" in ISU starts on the last note.

    This is correct. And you've got multiple former ISU Band Staff members saying so.

    pff, that's how it's written, but I can tell you for a fact that most of us (trumpets) do stupid things to it.

    Trumpets doing something stupid goes without saying.

    Re: Need a band geek

    It's 4 times through. Anybody that thinks it's three is either 1) a trumpet not paying attention, or 2) a trombone that had too much to drink every night for the last eight months.


    True and Valiant

    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.

    Or a drummer who isn't listening to anyone else anyway?
