I'm just curious to what all you long time cyclone fans think of all the changes the Cyclone Marching Band has implemented this year. Do you like where we are going?
From what I've noticed, there seems like there is the bare minimum of love flowing between audience and band. It kind of increased as the season went on, and was great at the bowl game with the whole "cyclone power" chant, but beyond that it just seemed like nothing was there. Compare us to say... the UW Badger Band...
Just to clarify I'm not looking for a self congratulatory thread to how awesome/bad we are. I'm more looking for suggestions to help improve the band, things you may have noticed that you liked/didn't like to help us become a better band presence. Nothing annoys me more when I watch home games on TV and I see the opposing team get all kinds of screen time and the ISUCF'V'MB get literally none.
P.S. Brownie points if you know what ISUCF'V'MB stands for
I liked the new band intro video they did this year. That should definitely stay.
Also liked the band coming over to play right in front of the student section. Seemed like there was always advertisements/music on the speakers while they were playing though? The guy up in the pressbox or whoever controls that needs to stop drowning out the band.
Other than that, y'all are great. I've heard from visiting fans that the interaction between the crowd (mainly the students) and the band at ISU is better than most anywhere else.
