    Just heard this on the news. No Cyclone weather alert in the beginning because of the storms. This won't really happen will it?

    Unreal that the police are asking us not to play our video...there is no chance anyone would think it is real.

    One of these weeks this statement will hold true for me. I run out of the stadium screaming every time I hear it.

    Doesn't surprise me, I've kind of been expecting this to be the case all week.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if they don't play the siren at all during the game.

    It was just on Channel 8 news, BUT they said the university indicated a decision would be made at gametime.

    No decision has been made on this yet.

    I don't remember. Is there any lightning or thunder in the background of that video? Could be suspect.

    Can't they just make an announcement before the video is played?

    I watched channel 8 news and they said the police asked not to use the alert AND they said the athletic department would make an decision on whether to use it closer to kick off.

    It would be idiotic to not have this. Anyone who dies because they can't distinguish the game day weather warning from a real one is probably a great case for natural selection.

    No cyclone weather warning symbol on the jumbo tron either? I was looking forward to hearing wildcat fans in the warned areas should take immediate cover.

    How funny would it be if after they played that video and all the KSU fans clear out of the stadium, while the ISU fans just sat there laughing at them.

    Yeah, it's definitely pretty much the best part of the gameday experience.

    Plus it was a total lucky charm at the OSU game last year. So I'm not allowed to forget to do it anymore.

    It'd be one thing if it were the first time we bad ever done the announcement, but by now 98% of the crowd will know its part of pregame and they can educate the other 2%
