    My 4 and 7 yr old sons attended their first game (in their memory) last weekend. Their favorite part: The Cannon!!!

    In general, I'm indifferent to the cannon, but knowing they get excited about it, it adds a lot of fun. As long as we can keep firing it early and often.

    would love to see it just stay with SD...SU...SD...SU, etc., and happen sporadically through the game. The Jack and Rabbits and the "hey everyone let's do this cheer message" just doesn't work for me and seems forced.

    And in its current state it just stops and feels like it needs an ending. I am doing my part in killing it off buy not participating. And encouraging my friends to not join in.

    So... I know it's Marker week, so the last thing people want to do is beat the dead horse that is the tailgating topic on here. However, I attended my first game at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City over the weekend. For anyone that thinks the current tailgating situation is sufficient, head on down to Iowa City for an Iowa home game to see an example of what tailgating could be in Brookings, obviously on a much smaller scale. I wish SDSU would go tour some facilities like this on gameday and realize the opportunity they're missing out on.

    Also, we definitely need to change the 4th quarter yell to be just S-D-S-U back and forth and continue until it dies out or the game starts. Iowa does the I-O-W-A chant multiple times a game and it's organic and fans have a lot of fun with it. They go by corner, which wouldn't work in Brookings, but we could go back and forth bewteen the West and East. I don't care if we go SD, then SU, or split it up and go S, D, S U. Anything like that would be better than the cheesy thing we have now.
