    I was checking out some old Youtube videos of past games in Hilton. Noticed a group of guys wearing some yellow and red 'barn gloves'. I don't know if this was ever a big thing in the past, but I was thinking this would be really cool if everybody was wearing them. Check it out at about the 2:55 mark. Thoughts...

    No, the clapping would sound all muffled like the crowd at a late November football game at JT.

    Do both with the most volume possible.

    Cell Phones need to be banned instead. Get rid of crap that takes peoples focus off the game. You are there to watch the game, if you need to be on your phone go elsewhere.

    I think we need a cyclone that can move throughout the building.

    I didn't think about the noise being muffled from the gloves, good point. But most of the noise comes from yelling anyway. Thought it would be a unique idea for the students behind the basket to have a sea of red and yellow during the free throws. Also didn't realize I had to look out for the 'cool police' with the mom jokes.

    Unless you post 20+ times a day your ideas will get made fun of. A downfall of this site.

    I like the idea but I couldn't do it. My hand would get sweaty I think if I wore them through a whole game.

    False. Proof: Clones21 and clonedude.

    It just wasn't that good of an idea.

    False. CycloneErik could have made this suggestion and I still wouldn't have agreed with it. For 3 reasons.

    1) I hate wearing gloves inside.
    2) 99% of the other fans inside wouldn't want to buy gloves for this, let alone wear them indoors.
    3) the muffled sound it makes.
