    Ultimate Team Introduction

    Since it sounds like the tornado siren thing isnt possible to use to welcome the team onto the field, how about this as a sweet idea. Show a shot of Ed Wilson, John McLaughlin, or that Metinka hottie on the big board, breaking in with a weather update. They could say something like 'Holy smokes, look at that weather over Iowa City'. In the background would be a dopplar-like image of eastern Iowa with a large cardinal and gold swirl going round and round over Iowa City. As they zoom into the center of this swirl, the epicenter becomes a live shot of the team coming through the balloon helmet. Outside of the helmet is a balsa-wood replica of some of the landmarks of the team we are playing - like Kinnick Field and Carver Dumpeye Arena. The team runs through these small-scale replicas, laying waste to them as they pass through, resulting in a total demolition of their beloved replica campus. 'Sorry Hawkeyes, you've been CYCLONED!'

    Of course the whole scene can be replicated for whoever we play that week.

    Thumbs up? Thumbs down? That's not a thumb?

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    Umm... I give that a thumbs down. Since this would only happen at home games, I'd be all for the Cyclone part of the idea (minus the replicas), but having a "cyclone" terrorizing the opponents' home towns doesn't make any sense. I liked the idea until you mentioned EIU.

    I would like just the "dopplar" to show central Iowa with the swirling cardinal and gold storm.

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    I remember during the Colorado Tornado game 2 years ago, i believe Ed Wilson came on the big screen. He was on the sidelines and he was pumped. It might have just been because the atmosphere that was created from the Cyclone, but i thought it was pretty cool. I dont think id do it everytime though.

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    Eliminate the idea of the replicas (would hate the debris on our field), make the storm swirl around Ames since that's where the destruction of the other team will occur, and maybe it would work. The metorologist could be broadcasting from their desk at the studio, and they could all be pre-recorded in a single day.

    Good imagination Tube1, but thumbs down for my vote. We can't fixate on EIU all the time. I do like the idea of including meteorologists going bezerk about an imminent storm about to hit central Iowa with some kind of jammin' rock song in the background. With ISU's outstanding computer engineering deptarment and the college of design etc... something really fun could be made. I always thought for an initial cut show some footage of real twisters could be shown with flashes of great moments in ISU football history (by the way, there are some amazing vids of tornadoes on YouTube).


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I think he was just using EIU as an opponent example. I hope he was.

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    this is kinda off topic.. but i would like it if they played zombie nation right b4 the kick off to get the crowd into it.. i dont remember what we have done in the past but that would be cool i think..

    as far as the video b4 we come out onto the field.. i think we should have the weather person be form the national weather service and show "
    "the storm" over the entire state of iowa..

    I'm not sure that wouldn't get old after awhile, but I love your line of thinking.

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    this reminds me an idea I had for basketball season. I always thought during intro's or sometime they should have a tornado like graphic on the big screen with trash and stuff swirling, (maybe a cow v.twister) around on the new screens that go around Hilton.

    Re: Ultimate Team Introduction

    Bentief, did you ever see the intro video for our gymnastics team this year? They had by far the snazziest, most impressive/terrifying intro video of any of our sports teams this past year. It's been quite a while since I last saw it, but it had something to do with a well-animated tornado bouncing its way around the country, demolishing stuff and knocking team buses off the road and sucking up cows and trees before touching down on Hilton's roof, while the lights inside the Coliseum go insane. I don't know if anybody can find a recording of it or something, but it's worth watching.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Yes. Just an example.
