RE: Tug Boat Toot
I get that the horn is a sponsor but it is such a high pitch horn that just irritates. Get a horn thats 1 - 2 octaves lower or run it through an effect that makes it lower in pitch. And please include a Dragon Roar. I'm fine with truck horn three times then end with a dragon roar if they need to make that sponsor happy.

Speaking of sponsors, the ribbon board needs to say GET LOUD, MAKE NOISE. FIRST DOWN, TOUCH DOWN, etc instead of just scrolling through ads the whole time. Make use of it. You can still have the ads in between key play but utilize it the way ribbon boards are for.

I wasn't able to attend the game, but that toot was annoying as hell. And embarrassing. And that just from hearing it on TV...

The school thinks it's going to grow its attendance by bringing in more casual fans. Having this annoying horn every 3rd down will hopefully get them to put down their wine & cheese for a few minutes and make some damn noise.

Having stuff like this is super common as well. Didn't Alabama have someone yell at you every 3rd down? I hate them, but I know for a fact the Patriots have something similar. These past 2 games have made it painfully apparent that people going to games need as much guidance as possible on when/what to cheer. I think it just sucked this past weekend because FAU picked up a few long 3rd downs in a row on some drives so it kept happening.

Navy has a foghorn for opponent's third downs, as well. Of course...Navy...foghorn...logical.

I like it. But I tend to tune it out after the 1st blast.

I look at it as, if it's annoying us image how it annoys the other team.

Maybe haters just need to appreciate we’re trying to make the tug boat toot our own. Gotta have some imagination to see how awesome it will be when everyone gets on board.

Just the experience on TV had the sound of a tugboat. Probably fit better in person.
