Did this all the time in pep band in college.  I think I recall one opposing team falling for it.

Just for the record, riding a tricycle back and forth behind the basket while the opposing team is shooting free throws is frowned upon in most establishments.

MSU was in danger of losing to Columbia?  Pitiful.

We did it in reverse. Almost felt guilty about it the time one of the bench warmers threw up a wild shot with ten seconds still on the shot clock, then got yanked.

Glad there's no video of it.  That would have just been boring.

We had a tough time with Holy Cross the other night - nobody could make a free throw.

Gonna be a long, ugly year for a lot of people.

Did you know that you can clear out a blockage in a trumpet mouthpiece by blowing over the end of it?  It does tend to make a high pitched whistling sound which may be why Valparaiso's visiting teams had the worst free throw percentage in the conference back in the late 80's.

We always did it backwards, starting late, or my favorite that I came up with, we'd count down the evens, and then up the odds (10,8,6,4,2,1,3,5,7,9) or in revers, confusing the hell out of the teams.

We also brought red flags and would throw them up in the air when there was a bad call, and we'd chant 'challenge!' over and over. Yeah, the refs got annoyed at us, but the basketball coach bought us pizza numerous times each season. Hooray small D3 arenas!

/got the reputation of loudest D3 arena to play in
