Since it sounds like the tornado siren thing isnt possible to use to welcome the team onto the field, how about this as a sweet idea. Show a shot of Ed Wilson, John McLaughlin, or that Metinka hottie on the big board, breaking in with a weather update. They could say something like 'Holy smokes, look at that weather over Iowa City'. In the background would be a dopplar-like image of eastern Iowa with a large cardinal and gold swirl going round and round over Iowa City. As they zoom into the center of this swirl, the epicenter becomes a live shot of the team coming through the balloon helmet. Outside of the helmet is a balsa-wood replica of some of the landmarks of the team we are playing - like Kinnick Field and Carver Dumpeye Arena. The team runs through these small-scale replicas, laying waste to them as they pass through, resulting in a total demolition of their beloved replica campus. 'Sorry Hawkeyes, you've been CYCLONED!'
Of course the whole scene can be replicated for whoever we play that week.
Thumbs up? Thumbs down? That's not a thumb?
sounds like a godzilla movie
