I sat by Lance last year during the Iowa game! We all loved him! That is another fun section.
The first down guy is the best!!!! He seemed awfully sober last night though. Hopefully a weekend game will bring him back to form. Go Clones!!!
I was in S5 parking lot and had no problem hearing music,sirens and other stuff on JTS sound system. it was a nice touch but worry about another colorado game with real tornados. what was it that boy cried wolf?
the atmosphere I loved it nice to get back to tailgating and the students showed in force. I missed the half time ticket sales/attendance
Pollards in your face approach is great hope he continues to get out into the crowd. definately a breath of fresh life.
good to see old players come back and get honored continue what is becoming a tradition
cant wait for UNLV
The shirt thing was lame. They said if you got in your seat early they would throw out shirts and such. Well we were in our seats in the third row at least an hour and a half before game time. They had students 10 minutes before game time come out and throw the shirts 30 rows above our heads even after we tried nicely telling the kid how long we had been there and to toss us a bone. Not a big deal as they were probably throwing mediums out, but the wife could have always sported it.
As for the sirens, they were cheesy because I expected so much more the way they were talked about. They just put a siren sound on the stadium PA and you could hear them from Hilton, but I don't know about to the South of the stadium.
The tunnel and helmet were a nice change of pace.
The band thing just didn't seem to be much different.
A nice attempt by Pollard, but the hype of the talk seemed like more than they actually amounted to. But my expectations could have been a little too much.
I saw the "that's gonna leave a mark" hit up close... and he got rocked... baum just unloaded on him.
The Neil Diamond song was great! I'm a student and "Sweet Caroline" is one of the most fun songs to sing along to. Lots of students were singing it, they need to make sure to play that at every game along with "Living on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi, which people sang along to a lot last year but they didn't play that much.
I thought the helmet was half cheesy, half cool. I was waiting for one of the players to get confused coming out of the smoke though and run over a member of the band.
The "Warning Sirens" were pathetic, I heard it four times to many last night. I've sent an e-mail to the marketing department asking if we can get a real siren. If they are concerned about the "boy who cried wolf theory" then they should keep in mind that most people outside of a mile radius of the stadium can't hear it and if after that they are still concerned they they need to attach something to the effect of "There is a cyclone warning in effect." Or something like that.
From the student section I heard the "Thats gonna leave a mark comment" on Baum's huge hit, my section (first student section, I think it is section 28, I was sitting 3rd row from field) loved it.
And I think the band being down by the student section helped the students more in the whole cheers aspect because we knew what the band was playing where as in previous years we sometimes couldn't even hear the band. That's why I think you saw a lot more involvement with things like "Whatcha Gonna Do, ISU".
