    Yea, season ticket holder here so I have been through the music several times before the introduction of players and it does nothing for me. The last couple of years the intro I thought was pretty sweet. Movie like, showing the history of ISU basketball and this year seems like your still banking on the football team introduction (I know not the same song, but still same type of music). I am disappointed just think whoever puts it together is failing. You had a whole year to tell the story of the transfers coming together, clowning around, the italy trip, learning in practices last year and this year. Just expected more from this department. Any way you can step it up would be great.

    FYI: They're probably not reading this.

    The thing that bugs me more is the playing of music during the other team's intro. Kill that music and let it just be 5 claps. (and ideally, just 5 claps)

    The intro is ok this year, i actually like it better than last year, which was way too slow and just kinda dragged on.

    They need the lights dimmed (or off) for this year's video to work.

    Agree, the music does suck though.

    It's about time somebody started a thread complaining about the Bball intro. Happened for Fb, might as well... right?

    I actually like the song it's Invincible Tonight by Adelitas Way. It's been the intro music for some of the football games on foxs sports net.

    I bet they added the music as a reaction to the direction five claps had gone recently.

    Rock and Roll Part 2 will probably get killed next.

    I love the song and the band. Last years was awesome but it was a little long. I wish we would dim the lights for our player intros

    Also, while im reminded, i hate how after our players are intro'd, we've got everyone clapping, all into the game, and then we switch to zombie nation, taking a lot of the air out of the crowd. Get rid of that and keep the crowd going right til tip, like we used to.

    If I was employed by ISU Athletics I more than likely would read this board. Simple way of seeing fans feedback. Of course I would avoid it after losses though, not much thought going on during those times.

    I thought last year's intro was fantastic and could be kept for many years to come. Change the highlights portion each year and its ready to go!

    We can't do it because the lights at Hilton take forever to come back on after being shut off.

    That's right. I knew I had heard the reason for not doing this in the past but I had forgotten

    You could mechanically cover them. Don't tell me anything is impossible.

    So, follow in the footsteps of WBB? :jimlad: Honestly, I prefer the women's atmosphere, all around. :spinny:

    Most teams that turn off lights for intros are not actually turning off the lights - they are simply "covered" - take Drake for example. I would not think it would be all that expensive to install mechanical light covers at Hilton.
