Members of the band talking on the field. All wearing new uniforms.
The 1974-1975 Marching Band uniforms are seen in Clyde Williams Field. 
Notice the bandsmen are wearing the "CY'S BIG WIND" barets. 
(To see details of these barets, see image below.) 

The ISU Marching Band performed for President Gerald Ford. 
Trumpet great Maynard Ferguson performed with the band during a halftime show.

















"CY'S BIG WIND"   Not all bandsmen agreed to that phrase. 
Many joked that it really said, "CY'S BIG WINO."
