    What was the opening song/video like?

    For those of us who could not attend. I was pretty chapped about the situation. This is my first year coaching and it just so happened that one of our only Thursday games fell on the same night as the ISU opener. What song was played with the video? What song did they come out to? How does the video look?

    I forget the song that played during the video.
    The video was pretty good. Highlight hits, catches, and runs with snazzy effects. Don't exactly know how to explain them. Cardinal colors shooting around our players and freeze effects, I guess.

    Walked out the tunnel to "Smoke on the Water".

    Smoke on the Water is good for the walk, but there's no big climax for when they run onto the field, it just kind of keeps going.

    Smoke on the Water is one of my all-time favorite songs, but I do not like it for a intro/walkout song to start a football game.

    Only problem with Smoke on the Water is that you can tell it's looped and sounds really awkward when it starts over. Plus, anti-climatic like others have said.

    I might be the only one here, but I actually like Twilight Zone better than smoke on the water for an intro song. At least the beat is faster, the crowd can get into it, and its more climatic. One of my favorite things when Mac was here was watching the team walk down the side of the Jacobson to this song.

    While other teams are coming out to Thunderstruck and Enter Sandman, you guys would rather walk out to outdated techno? Might as well play the Barney theme song.

    Indeed, the seam of the looping is done very poorly.

    It also seemed that the team wasn't quite ready when they started the music. That song can only sustain itself so long.
