    Fanatics, the idea of having a large-scale Cyclone Alley flop in response to Marcus Smarts..ehem..abilities, has been tossed around here for awhile. I don't expect the CAC to go the extra mile and get this thing organized, so I'm doing what I can.

    With that said, I've created an event on Facebook which you can find in the link below. If you're a student heading to the game, please join and pass it along to other friends/students that you know might be there. And if you're not a student go ahead and post the event for any friends of yours that are students and might be going.

    Obviously more to do than just create a Facebook group, but its a start.

    A massive FLOP when he is announced during starting lineup would probably make sportscenter

    Organize a flop for the starting line up and every time he shoots a free throw. Set up specific instructions on what to do and when to do it, put it on that internet page. Then make a sign with that facebook page link, and hold it up at the front of the student section so they all can look it up on their phones (before the game).

    Just put it on twitter or Instagram or reddit, that's what all the students are looking at during the game anyway so youll know they see it

    Will Cyclone Alley be apologizing for the flop?

    This is a good idea. The starting line-up flop would give everyone the exact moment to do it without much instruction. Another flop when he is at the free-throw line would be great, and perhaps when he actually has a flop of his own.

    WRNL may just give you some love back if y'all find a way to pull this off!
    Best of luck

    That would be ironic, since the apology would be a flop.

    I'm giving this a 12% chance of success. Really hope it works out though.

    I'd also say to try to get some of the players to retweet it. It'll see a ton of eyes that way as well.

    In the absolute worst case scenario, there will be large pockets of students doing this. I have a very large group at each game that will definitely be participating. I'm sure a lot of students on here have groups that they go with. Word will be passed in line that day and while we're waiting in Hilton between the doors opening and game time. And the hope is that the facebook event page reaches many. 36 already listed as "going" with nearly 400 more invited (when I started the page, I had invited 40).

    In the best case scenario, epic-ness will ensue.

    Good call. I'll probably do this as the week goes on. As for now they're getting ready for tonight's game, and any tweets after will get lost in the shuffle.

    How is it not a requirement to be a member of CF if you're a student at ISU. It should be like, "there's the laundry room, here's your lanyard, here's instructions of setting up an account on CF"

    Would it be good to tweet something to Travis Hines, Randy Peterson, and/or Dean Burhow-Goll and see about a possible retweet or story to raise some awareness, or would involving the media ruin the affect of the flop itself?

    Might also help if the band was involved, but I'm not sure how to contact them. Any pep-banders on here willing to spread the word?

    Tough to say as not many ideas aspire to be a flop.
