    Funny thing is...they think they were the first one to do it.

    They do? I haven't heard that one before.

    Frickin Wisconsin copying our 'Jump Around' thingy.

    Frickin BoSox for copying Sweet Caroline.

    Frickin every major team from the '80s for copying our smoke as the team enters the field.

    anytime I hear fans complain about something the other team does that is annoying...I think it must be working exactly as planned and worth keeping.

    I wonder if they still do it after Florida embarrassed them.

    I'm a season bball ticket holder and I can never recall one single time I've done a chomp motion or seen other fans doing it, at least not like the suckeye eyes do on 3rd downs. That's supposed to be Pac Man? With Star Wars music? Huh?? It's douchiest thing they do, and that's sayin something.

    It wasn't him. It's Bode. You probably have him blocked.

    Nebraska calls the Allen Parsons Project known to most as the Jordan Bulls intro "the Husker song". Dead serious. Also I'm sure dozens of teams have had tunnels to walk through, my high school had a tunnel going under a street to the gym.

    Why bump an old thread? I've never seen the gator chomp at any Iowa State basketball game.

    When I was in school we used to do it before the game during the music before the introductions. Of course that was back when gators were a relatively new dinosaur.
