ISU Students Organizing Student Section Flop For Marcus Smart

Posted: Updated:
AMES, Iowa -

There aren't many college basketball players as polarizing as Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart.

And, in what will likely be the final regular season game in the Cowboy guard's career, the Iowa State student section is orchestrating a way to honor the enigmatic All-American – kind of.

An Iowa State student has started a Facebook group titled "Cyclone Alley FLOP," which is intended to serve as a way to "return the favor" for the negative press many fans believe Smart's style of play has brought upon the Big 12 Conference.

This is their plan for the 1 p.m. contest on Saturday at Hilton Coliseum in Ames:

"It's time to make him feel right at home with a MASSIVE student section flop of our own.

THE FLOP: This will essentially be a very dramatic fall back into your seat and neighbors. Be sure to REALLY overdo it. Throw your arms into the air, yell and scream as you fall back (think about it as a reversal of the "sitting down to jumping up" free throw distraction), and act like you've been knocked across the face. These are methods we've learned from the legend himself; Marcus Smart.


INTRODUCTION: When Marcus Smart is announced during Oklahoma State's starting line-up, we'll replace *clap, clap, clap, clap, clap* "YOU SUCK!" with *clap, clap, clap, clap, clap* "YOU FLOP!" When we yell "FLOP", we all FALL BACK! This is the most important one.

FREE THROWS: During select free throw attempts, we'll be holding up the FLOP signs. Be sure to FLOP AS SOON AS THE REF GIVES HIM THE BALL. Flopping as he shoots will do little to distract him.

HOW IT STARTS: At the front of each end of the student section, there will be a couple of large signs which read "FLOP". These signs will be held up immediately before the team introductions to remind you to flop when Marcus Smart is announced. The signs will also be held up a couple of times during his free throw attempts, so if Smart gets to the free throw line, be on the lookout!"

Oklahoma State is 4-0 since Smart returned from a three-game suspension for shoving a Texas Tech fan on Feb. 8. Smart is averaging 18 points, 6.8 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 4.5 steals in the winning streak.
