What matters to me is how the fans react when the team comes running out of the tunnel to a Black Out crowd. If they go nuts, then I like it.

We needed a bit of a change...cheesy fire extinguishers needed to go for one...and this is good.

But seems some will never be happy.

I think part of that is hearing the squealing noises over 2001. I understand this sentiment but I think if I were focusing on 2001/crowd noise and seeing flames in the distance or on TV it would look neat. I could see them trying to utilize the flames/fireworks together with the DJ as well and make for a lively atmosphere before kickoff.

I doubt you hear the squealing over the crowd noise unless you're sitting real close.

Count me in on not liking the flames. Cheesy and NFLish. And no, I don't find something to just complain about - just stating my opinion.

Plus one.

Some bad decisions by people. So many things better could be done. Don't fix what isn't broken.

Don't give a crap what the fans think, but I do hope the 4 and 5 star recruits like it. If they do, then that is all that matters. I do think, however, that adding flames to that stadium during September will only serve to add to the million degrees of heat that are already there. That part is questionable.

At least they are trying new things. Uniforms, flames, DJs, etc. All of that is to draw recruits.

That's what I am thinking. We will find out on the 16th.

I think with the crowd rocking, and the band in place, it will look pretty bad ass.

Yea, this is gonna be wild at night against UK. Fans will be going apeshit. Bring it on. I read somewhere that they were gonna dress it up real nice and not just leave the columns exposed. Gonna be LITTY!

**Just noticed that only 3 columns were operating. 4 will be insane.

This is a pretty dumb change,m. Doesn't make much sense to me as it has been about the one continually successful thing we have done in our programs history. Hate the fire and I think most fans won't be happy with it.
