    I like how they form the outline of their state. I would love to see our band form the shape of Iowa with one person marking Ames/ISU.

    Looking at some videos of their band awhile back, their Simple Gifts part of pregame is also pretty good.

    Where did they do this? I saw star, tank, boat, eagle, submarine, and purtttty swirls with the flag.

    Move over floating ISU, this is much cooler.

    Thanks for posting this, great band. The musical arrangements were very nicely written and the movements matched great.
    The order of precedence for the service songs is based on when each service was established, it should be: USA, USMC, USN, USAF, USCG (with the Coast Guard being a part of the Department of Homeland Security, not the Department of Defense).

    I'm speculating the order was selected for field formation reasons. Might have made the transitional logistics easier (i.e. fewer collisions) to do it how they did.

    Also, this is pretty awesome. Their pre-game show is great too!
