    I was very glad to see ISU pay tribute to Army during the pregame. It goes to show you how much they are sacrificing to keep us free

    Will this be shown online? It's the part I was most hoping for and looking forward to, and we got caught in line with the slowest ticket-takers ever, so we ended up late for the game.

    Did anyone pay attention to the end of the game. Both teams went over to the Army section, took a knee and listened to the Army band play. I was way over out by the NW entrance so I couldnt hear what they were playing but I thought that was awesome. What a classy bunch of guys. We need to be proud of the guys we are watching every week. Was one of those things that gave me goosebumps!

    Most teams that play Army or Navy will stand behind them while the band plays the alma mater after the game. ISU did it at West Point in '05, and again tonight. Very respectful. I think Army was going to return the favor, but the band was playing Fights and not Bells at the time.

    Thanks for sharing! I wasn't aware they did that or what they were playing. Whoever it is, what class when done by the opposing team.
