As the off season is coming to a close, everything possible has been discussed by College Football fans during the break. Best teams, best stadiums, best conference, etc..
I, of course, decided it was time to make my own list because; well, who wants to stand out from the crowd?
This list is a compilation of my favorite cheers and/or taunts in College Football today. Remember, these are my favorites, if your team is not included I am sorry.
All I can say is wow...it's not incredibly original so it losses some points but all the same it is a cool thing to hear live. I had to add PSU somewhere on this list but singing random 80's songs just isn't a chant to me.
Now, I know it's not something spectacularly original but all the same it's a great idea. Most schools do something to the extent of "Orange" and "Blue on opposite stadium sides or "Let's Go", "Hokies".
At least Ohio State went out on a limb on this chant and used all four sides of their rectangle to spell out their beloved state!
Are you ready?
Hotty Toddy, gosh almighty,
Who the hell are we?
Flim Flam, Bim Bam, OLE MISS BY DAMN!
Hotty Toddy...well what can you say? So many curse words in such a short time I heard the band was almost forced to make the shape of a parental advisory sticker before chanting it.
Still, who doesn't like to curse a few times with 60k brothers?
LSU fans are known to be the loudest and most intimidating fans in the nation. They bow to their defense, chant L-S-U at a rapid pace, and yell the whole time...even during warm ups...
I heard Busch waiting to sell their company till after CFB season just so they could make those last few millions off the Tiger fans.
Sorry, couldn't find a better video of it...but look at the girls!
Not a good video of it on You Tube. However, this one was choosen specifically for the beautiful ladies that fill the stadium. This should be No. 1 just for that but!
Now I first wondered why the Arkansas faithful loved calling the hogs. Then I saw their women at the SEC title 2006...Hogs must look tempting after seeing those girls every day.
Okay, that was mean, but anyways.
Woo - Pig - Sooie comes in 6th because it's incredibly original. I love it, even if it gets annoying after awhile that is the point of a taunt/chant isn't it?
Now, I know some of you might be saying, "This isn't a chant or Taunt, it's a fight song". You might be correct, but it's darn awesome. So awesome it made the list anyways!
Now if they could just win a game or two over Texas...:)
Four is very nice for me considering I hate FSU with a passion.
Still, the war chant was good enough to the Braves to buy the rights for it for their baseball team. This chant is one of the most annoying chants simply because it is played so often during the game and every time it just makes you angrier....which means it is a good chant.
Chants are there to annoy the competition and give the fans something to do. This accomplishes both perfectly.
Coming in at No. 3 is the Gator chomp. The chomp has several different versions which is why it is high on the list. Oh, and I am a Gator fan so it might be a homeristic ranking but I am okay with that.
Nothing is more intimidating then 90,000 loud, annoying Floridians reminding you that you are Gator Bait...especially after you just got sacked or stopped short on third down.
Sorry, but if their is one fight song everyone knows it is this one. Undoubtedly the most recognizable song in CFB and that makes it No. 2. It's just a piece of college football.
I'm not even a Michigan fan but every time I hear the beat I have to sing the whole darn song. Not a chant but still..it is CFB at it's very finest.
That's right. I have seen my team on the other side of this chant...believe me it sucks. This cheer is still my absolute favorite.
There is nothing at all better then being in a stadium with 90,000 friends (or in Bama's case, relatives..jk) and mocking your opponent!
I so wish we did this at Ben Hill...I've tried to modify it and chant something to the extent of Rammer Jammer but everyone just stares at me...but anyways..just watch the video and you will know why it's No. 1.
