    Cyclone Alley

    I have read how much hatred there is on here towards cyclone alley and I know I've been one to be doing that also but here is a survey were you can express all of this and maybe get some changes made.

    The dudes running CAC remind me of the dbags from the movie Out Cold that pour out the 40s and say, "Keeping it real, by keeping it safe."

    That's the analogy I've been searching for to describe CAC for years. Not sure how it slipped my mind. Thank you.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Eliminate Cyclone Alley. That is how you make it better.

    Re: Cyclone Alley

    My analogy is that CA is every d-bag, overinvolved kid in high school you couldn't stand that have joined forces and ruined basketball games...oh wait, thats not an analogy, thats what they actually are...

    Agreed.

    Lets bring back the originality and creative side of being a college student, there will be plenty of time in the future to fall in line and be given marching orders.

    I miss things like Vromies Homies, creative signs and everything else that CAC has killed including a small part of Hilton Magic.

    Agree. Especially when our games are televised; our student section looks so boring on TV.

    Re: Cyclone Alley

    Cyclone Alley Central is to Hilton Magic what HUCAC is to Cyclone Fanatic - a pointless destructive cancer that is destroying everything good about what we love














    But seriously, CA/CAC need to be revamped, if not done away with. There are some good points to it, but it gutted the heart of the student section


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Have you guys personally met any of the CAC members this year?

    Because those are pretty ignorant comments to say about people who you haven't even met....

    Re: Cyclone Alley

    I really don't care about any of this.....But
    I would bet $100 that if we were 25-5 this year and 3 seed. There would be no survey.

    Re: Cyclone Alley

    CAC is like a coloring book that gives you an electric shock if you color outside of the lines. What they don't realize is that the greatest artists in history (DaVinci, Van Gogh & Bob Ross) never had coloring books.

    Let the students paint their own canvas.

    They're probably speaking from their years in Cyclone Alley.

    • headbands





    What was your least favorite prop this season? *
    • foam fingers
    • beads
    • car window sticker
    • wrist bands
    • santa hats
    • 3-point signs
    • pom poms
    • jumbo sunglasses
    • hard hats
    • megaphones

    Do you have any ideas for free throw distractions that we can do in the future?
    These things right here in particular are the things that need to wiped out of Cyclone Alley. A prop maybe once in a blue moon is a good thing but every other game makes the student section look like a damn field trip with 5th graders not college students. It really is an embarrassment.
