    Here's a pic of the Army player falling into formation post-game. They sang a song I'm not familiar with, then everybody yelled "Beat Navy" at the end. Good stuff.

    we were on the south side of the Jack, never heard 'em.

    My friends on the north-east side said they shook the ground. Jack Trice must have some major sound dampening built into it.

    Also, why did they do the game ball parachute jump so early? I really wanted to see them land in the stadium, but didn't want to go in from tailgating 2 hours early.

    Yeah, I also enjoyed the Blackhawks flying overhead. And add me to the list as to trying to understand why they parachuted in so early. When I saw them come down, the stadium was pretty much empty. I think it would have been cool if they delivered the game ball or something, when the stadium is full.

    The field had to be cleared to be deemed safe enough by the pentagon, and because families and children lined up on the field to bring in the teams, they had to do it super early. I was also disappointed that it wasn't later!

    Didn't think about that, good point.. But, it would have been entertaining watching those jumpers try to land around thousands of little kids on the field. :biglaugh:

    That is an absolute first class shot. Nice to see our players and fans showing respect to the Army team.

    I was in section J at the south endzone right above the Army band when they came over and had to stop my son (14) and his friend from going too far. I knew that something was going to happen at the end of the game but was unaware of this as such. The respect that was given to the Army Football Team and their fans was simply incredible. There have been a lot of Cyclone Football games that I have attended both home and away in my many years and to feel the buzz in and around the stadium all day and well into the night was very special. Thanks to all for posting these videos and photos...gave me goosebumps AGAIN!
