    Trivia: Iowa State Football

    What is the absolute minimum number of times the canon can be fired at an Iowa State football game and lay out that scenario.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Trivia: Iowa State Football

    Just a complete random guess but i am guessing 0 and that is due to times of war like WWI and WWII.

    THAT, I did not think of. Let's say under normal political situations.

    The cannon, operated by members of the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity, is traditionally fired after every Cyclone touchdown or field goal. Additionally, it has been fired on kickoffs and was formerly fired during the Cyclone Marching Band’s playing of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

    Based on that response I'm guessing you cheated somehow. Lol, but the correct answer, CURRENTLY, is 3. Iowa State takes the field, opening kick off, second half kick-off.

    I didn't cheat, I just went to the traditions page on Cyclones.com. That's what they have posted there.

    Re: Trivia: Iowa State Football

    i think you mean cannon not canon.

    the answer is zero. the cannon is broken.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
