    Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    I am sick of the the fact that you gather before the game in a circle and take turns as to who scans the crowd for people not wearing the "shirt."

    I am sick of the fact that I see you standing in the front row the whole game with your arms crossed.

    I am sick of you giving us dirty glares.

    I am sick of your stupid props.

    I am sick of your lack of leadership.

    I am sick of your lack of cheering.

    BE A LEADER NOT A FOLLOWER.....YOU DONT DESERVE THE BADGE

    Re: Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    I thought the crowd was rather weak tonight and I believe the rest of the crowd feeds off of the students and Cyclone Alley.

    Re: Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    I have a good feeling that this season might be the end of Cyclone Alley. I don't think it's a coincidence that since the student section went fully Cyclone Alley (start of the 2005 season) that we only have one win over a ranked team at home (Iowa 2005). When is the last team ISU has gone 4 years without beating a ranked team at home in basketball? I'm dead serious. I guarantee it was pre-Orr. Just make the student section like football, or get the students spread through the crowd to get it going.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    I would also like to note that it appeared that half of Cyclone Alley exited with about 4 minutes left in the game tonight. A game that was down to an 8 point difference against a rival. It wasn't long ago that the student section would have been chanting sit down old people at that same act. Truly pathetic.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Students were pretty quite tonight for the Iowa game. What happened to screaming whenever the Cyclones are on defense? Making some noise effects the game, its better than just cheering after we score.

    My thoughts exactly...time for Cyclone Alley to be put out of it's misery...

    Re: Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    CA was pretty bad tonight. There were a lot of times where Iowa had the ball and there was complete silence. Something has to be done.

    Of course, the rest of the crowd was even worse. They act as if it's against the rules to stand up and cheer when something exciting happens...

    And dont give them **** to throw or make into paper airplanes. I guess that was more exciting than the actual game.

    Re: Dear Cyclone Alley Central

    I am not a fan of cyclone alley at all. This is my second year being a part of it and I can't wait to see it go back to the way it was. I remember coming to games when I was younger and not even being able to talk to someone next to me because it was so loud. Half the people in the lower section of CA are just there because they think it's cool to be at the game, they end up not cheering at all. At the UNI game this year me and a guy next to me were yelling at the refs for some blatantly obvious fouls that were not called and some chick turned around and told us to be quiet. I think instead of checking if you have the shirt they should breathalyze you and only let you in if you are above .08

    The alley oop from Garrett to Brackins for the first score of the game was the only time the crowd really ever got loud that I noticed
