1. The KillerFrogs

Top things you want to see as a fan at the 2019 home games

Discussion in 'Scott Nix Frog Fan Forum' started by LeagueCityFrog, Jul 12, 2019.

  1. 1-9: Weston Tiberius Phelan at every game
    10: a winning record
     
  2. I will look more closely next year. I am slowly moving up despite slowly losing ground on the priority point wars.
     
  3. This is me beating a dead horse, but good lord I cringe so bad at wrestlemania cheerleader man starting the Go Frogs chant. I understand that may be ridiculous for me to think like that, I get it. But for whatever reason i think that is one of the worst in-game experiences we have. Any energy that was there is completely sucked out when they trot that guy out to the 50.

  6. 2 Kings 2:23-24
    “From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’ they said. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’ He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.”
     
  7. Maybe this song when this year's Frog team comes out to play Clemson in the CFP semifinal.... IF Clemson makes it.

  8. That song makes me the opposite of pumped up. If strawberry milk shake IPA’s were a song it would probably sound something like that.
     
  9. Anxious to see all of the new TCU trim.

    Uniform trim, of course.
     
  10. I can not describe how much I hate our pregame routine. I hate almost every aspect of it: Welcome to the jungle, sparklers on flags, etc. However, the "go frogs" microphone guy is the absolute worst. I have always been a "go in early" guy, but the pregame routine is just so so bad that I can not even watch it.

  11. With regard to the game-day presentation issue - I must admit I don't pay much attention to it.

    My focus is almost exclusively on the actual game, so all the "Kiss Cam" stuff doesn't capture my eye very much.

    I'm usually looking at CGP or trying to catch a glimpse of some relevant interaction between players, not the "bells and whistles."

    I understand those kinds of extras are a draw for many of the casual fans, but frankly - I'm not a casual fan. I'm engaged with what's between the lines.

    Go Frogs!

    Preach - it's super cringy. Married into an LSU family and go to a lot of games in Tiger Stadium and I get my fix of pregame chills with their intro videos/music. Then get amped for a game at the Carter until intro shows video of some old man on his porch doing riff ram or a player tackling some JV high school football player...

    .

    One year there were bears wrestling or something random. Then comes the sparklers and microphone guy...woof.

    Do more this...


    2010 was one of my TCU favorites. Simple


    Another good one...cant remember if it was last year's intro or not.
     
  13. If they think it wont get too out of hand there then no reason for us not too.

  14. Video 1: “Fear isn’t what’s hiding under the bed. It’s right here waiting inside this tunnel.” Possibly the worst line in the history of intro videos. Also. Tackling the middle schooler in football pads still makes me cringe to this day.

    Video 2 (LSU): wasn’t that impressed

    Video 3: meh. Not a fan of that one at all. I think an intro video should be a little more unique and energizing than just playing a highlight reel.

    Video 4: that wasn’t an intro video. Just a preseason hype video. Not sure if it’s online.


    2016 with the real Horned Frog is one of my favorites


    2017 is the one with the wresting bear. Absolutely awful https://youtu.be/x81bvcZmwzs

    2014 Amp it up was another turrrrible one https://youtu.be/EyuLw60cBAA

    2012 was another bad one. Too much talking from players https://youtu.be/VqXgAillzWI

    Looking back though, a majority of our intro videos have sucked. We need to hire whoever does our baseball video every year, as I don’t think we use the same company that football does. Some of the baseball ones are iconic and have national acclaim.


    Back to football, 2009 is still my all time favorite.

  15. I could see how the LSU one doesn't impress that much if you aren't familiar with the traditions or aren't in the stadium Saturday Night. Agree that 2016 was pretty good. 2009 doesn't do anything for me. Players being staged in some pump up rally...meh. Give me the highlights, give me the history, give me the tradition. At the end of the day it's not about me and if videos like 2009 get the players pumped then I am all for it. I just get a lot more fired up and rowdy when I see The Great White hit or Anderson running 93 yds on Ohio St. than Jerry Hughes doing a scripted pump up while Marcus Cannon rubs purple finger paint under his eyes.

  16. If you’ve ever been to an LSU game you’ll probably think that selling beer to a bunch of people that have been drinking since Friday night won’t have a lot of impact. Might as well make a profit.

    I also thought that Arizona State does a great job firing up their crowd when the sun devils come out. They do a great job with coordinating the on field pyrotechnics with the music and the team running out. No words spoken during their intro video. Just a rock n roll video and some good pyro.



    This style intro is what TCU Athletics should do. Do it in a Texas style and size version and call it good. ASU's intro is to the point, about a minute, the hype and energy builds, and out roars the team.

  18. not sure how there is a discussion of college football entrance videos and va tech hasn't been mentioned yet.



    first and foremost before any music the stadium is packed, no gaps, no spaces, and the stadium is ready for the game. the cheer is basic, it is simple, it is loud, and the crowd doesn't need to be prompted by some message board.

    second, when the music starts the crowd starts moving. no one is worried about the ice bouncing out of their gnt in the suites or finishing one last beer in the parking lot.
