    A few questions for a member of the ISUCF"V"MB

    Do you have any idea what the new band uniforms may look like?
    Also, will you have them for the next football season?
    A few years back, the band played "Go Cyclones, Go Cyclones..., ISU!" for every first down, how come they don't play it nearly as much as they used to? (FYI I love the horn guy tradition but I love when the band play Go Cyclones too)

    Thanks and GO CYCLONES!

    No idea on the uniforms, but when the band switched to the north endzone, the playing of the 1st down cheer got cut down due to the band making it difficult for the team to hear on offense especially when they were on the north side of the field.

    They don't play because they got in "trouble" for playing when the offense was trying to call in a play. Chizik got mad and the athletic department told the band not to play when the offense is on their side of the 50.

    Kinda pisses me off.

    New uniforms are still in the initial design stages. Directors and athletics are working with our design company to get some sketches made right now. We hope to have a few samples made up for next fall so the current members can get an idea of what they'll look like. The plan right now is to have them ready for the '11 season, not this coming season since producing the new ones will take some time.

    Pretty sure this was around in McCarney's year as well...at least his final year. That was my freshman year and I remember the horn guy playing when the band couldn't.

    I was in it from 2003, 2004 and 2005. It was during the chizik tenure that the 1st down cheer died during the chizik tenure.

    All I have to say, is that if the band puts on another crowd pleasing performance like single-ladies, it won't matter what the uniform looks like. At the bowl game, people were giving Minnesota fans crap for how awesome our band was compared to theirs.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    The "Horn Guy" goes back to at least fall of 2006, McCarney's last year. Check out the Facebook group "Fans of the guy who blows the horn thingy at the football games"...first post on the wall was October '06.

    Some people need to get over their hatred of Chizik and realize that not everything "bad" with our football program can be tied to him.

    Yeah, we started to not play the 1st down cheer as much during the Chizik era, but now with the no-huddle offense, it's just difficult to get in many offensive cheers in general.

    You can play cheers with the no huddle especially ours...just because it is no huddle doesn't mean it's fast cause ours sure as hell isn't most of the time.

    Ours is fast enough. Once the center is down over the ball, we have to stop playing, even if the QB is still adjusting the play. It's best if we do not try to sneak in a few seconds of music.

    Kind of like the 1st downs overall?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
