If you’ve been watching the Iowa State vs. Ohio State third round matchup in the NCAA Tournament this morning, you’ve no doubt heard the wide array of phrases the Cyclones’ band and students have been chanting at Ohio State’s players when they’re taking free throws. USA Today ran an article after ISU’s matchup against Notre Dame on Friday on the topic. Here’s a list of what they were chanting: “The hoop is smaller than the ball.” “You’re shooting for a date to the prom.” “You’re shooting a greasy bowling ball.” “Your number’s a palindrome.” “There is no hoop.” Sounds about right, though there have definitely been a few different ones today as well.  Here’s the clever Iowa State band, who must have a list of chants to use during free throws. #marchmadness twitter.com/davidjabs7/sta… — David Jablonski (@davidjabs7) March 24, 2013 Thompson checks in. Iowa State band chants “Hey you, your shoe’s untied” followed by, “the ball is kinda sticky”. — Hayden Grove (@H_Grove) March 24, 2013
