    How 'bout them Isiserettes

    I loved the drum corp at halftime and have sent a contribution to help them out. I like the team effort in the rebounding...A+ improvement. I like the one trip up the floor against the press when Garrett was out and they passed the ball up without a dribble. The crowd was there for them with 10 minutes to go when they got the lead down to 6 or 7---Hilton magic will be there if there is a reason. Didn't care for Gilstrap dribbling down the floor after a steal only to go behind his back and lose it off his foot again---he should pass to a guard and get the ball back near the basket (unless it is Garrett). Was at the Texas game too. Best thing in that game was after Boozer was hurt and was heading to the locker room, he gave a big fist pump to Cyclone Alley like he was happy to be here playing for the Cyclones---we could use a team of Boozer's and it would make me proud. The bad was the lack of team chemistry---where were the players to help him off the court. Last year when Blake Griffin was hurt the whole team practically carried him off. There is no "I" in team----as Gilstrap needs to learn.

    Just my opinion as a former member of the marching band, but we need to recruit a few of those drummers to play on our drum line.

    Love the Isiserettes. I get more into the cadences than the dancers.

    I say this with all due respect towards the drummers in the Isiserettes, but they have a LONG way to go before they could play in the ISU drumline. The 2 styles are very different and the Isiserettes drummers lack basic technique required to play in the ISU line.

    I can say this for two reasons....I'm a drummer and drumline instructor and I had a student who played in the Isiserettes until a month ago. He also played in the High School line that I instruct.

    I enjoy the Isiserettes style, but it is not the equivalent of the demands of modern rudimental drumming.

    Re: How 'bout them Isiserettes

    They seem to have improved leaps in bounds to where they were a couple years ago. I wonder if their invitation to the inauguration parade raised the kids commitment and interest in the group.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    The isiserettes make it fun and I really enjoy them. If ISU's drumline were as fun I might stay in my seat at halftime.
