You talking about at the beginning of the game right after the ISU starting introductions? That's a tradition that's always been done by everybody, not just the student section. I don't think people are going to awkwardly stand there and not chant "Let's go State" just because we are playing OSU or KSU.
"I S U" has been done many times in those situations.
I never have understood why the band chants "block that kick!" Makes them sound really ********.
The reason they chant ridiculous stuff like that is to get the shooter thinking about what they are saying rather than concentrating on the task at hand. It makes more sense when you think about it that way.
Whether it ever works or not is another matter entirely.
"There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
No, but we do hear the fight song 1,490 times per game.
The ISU pep band and marching band have an infinitely more diverse play list than the Boomer Sooner band. I guess I don't understand the hate for ISU Fights. You should hear it (and sing it) more times than anything else at an ISU sporting event.
Well the band is back to pulling the usual bull ****. No better way to scare away a huge recruit with the usual "You're not going to make it" chants. At least most of the time it was too loud to even her them.
