    Football entrance, tornado siren.

    I made an online petition that you can feel free to sign if you would like to see the football players enter the stadium to a tornado siren.

    This probably won't matter, it will be hard to get enough names... But if it does maybe this would provide some leverage for JP to put it in.

    Maybe we could put the Engineering college to good use and have them make something that will create a real cyclone around the entrances too...

    Re: Football entrance, tornado siren.

    Will they say that we already play a (poor excuse of a) tornado siren before the game starts? I thought they said it was against the law or something, they didnt want people to actually think there was a tornado. I dont like the siren that they currently use, i cant even hear it from my tailgating spot. It sounds more like a foghorn, or a submarine diving horn, AAAOOoooOOOGggaaaaHHHHH.

    If we keep the one we have, the announcer needs to yell "Man your battlestations!!" after it gets done firing off.

    yea they can't use an actual tornado siren because it's against the law. otherwise i'm sure JP would have used it.

    Re: Football entrance, tornado siren.

    at least make it sound like a real one through the speakers


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Football entrance, tornado siren.

    Yeah, I wasn't going for the ames area tornado sirens to go off... Maybe sort of cool, but kind of overkill. However I did leave specifics open... All I care about is that a siren goes off. As for laws... that is what petitions are for, to revoke or at least try to amend them. Laws are created by and for people.
    If nothing else, at least a petition is something JP can use as evidence to appeal. If it doesn't work, no big deal, at least we tried to have a say in the gameday experience.

    Re: Football entrance, tornado siren.

    Also, I am not a member of any other cyclone websites, so if someone would like to post the petition anywhere else, please feel free to.

    Re: Football entrance, tornado siren.

    JP makes the decision. Local government decides if it complies with regulations.

    If it doesn't, JP shows petition, petition is considered in outcome.

    Maybe nothing will come of it, maybe something will, who knows. But for god's sake, if you want to see it, then just sign it. No sense in arguing about it or trying to detract voters.
