"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Where are the students that organized the Rich Rod chant during the WMU game? I would love to see that done again. You should also lead the "Family Values" chant that was mentioned yesterday. Maybe after we bust up a play in the backfield?
I know there some stragglers but the support for the team has been better than expected this week and seems to be gaining even more steam. Keep it up!

Obviously we would change Ronaldo for a current M player (Forcier maybe?) and change the "plays on the left" part to something different (he throws/runs/rolls to the left/right?) and finally change the England to whoever we're playing that day. Maybe sing it after a TD. I figure it's something simple that most people would be able to pick up on after hearing it once or twice.
He throws to the left
He throws to the riiiiight
That boy Tate Forcier makes State/Iowa/Ohio State look shite

Since there are a lot of lines in this one, maybe just do the Na Nar parts and maybe put in "Miller, Ricardo Miller, Michigan's #1" after good grab or "Turner, JT Turner, Michigan's #2" after an INT. Again, it's pretty simple and most would be able to pick up on it.
I'm not limiting us to those but they're pretty easy to learn and adapt. I really like it as long as it's something simple and that it could very easily catch on since it would unique to college football (I think? I can't think of a school that does it).
What do you guys think, good or bad idea? Anyone else have a good chant to use, maybe something more original? Please no actual soccer talk; I don't want to start a flame war.
**Note** - I love The Victors, Temptation and all that good shit and I am by no means trying to say it isn't good enough. I was shooting for more along the lines of player specific like the examples I posted.
***Edit - This is my first diary post and I don't know why the videos won't show. I've posted videos in the forum. Anyone want to help a brother out?
There are some pretty cool college kickoff cheers out there.
Just to name a few, Oklahoma fans yell, "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO U!", Auburn fans yell, "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR EAGLE!", Notre Dame fans yell, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IRISH!", while Georgia fans yell, "GOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS! SIC 'EM!"
Michigan fans, on the other hand, yell, "ooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOH!" (See below)
Why does our kickoff cheer suck so bad?
I mean, seriously, "oooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOH"?!? Is that the best we can come up with?
Has anyone ever given any thought to at least yelling, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BLUE!" or something like that?
Hey guys, this is a formal request for anyone that has the replay of the point in either the second or third quarter (can't remember which it was) that EVERYONE did the RRod chant and Graham and the DLine got everyone up. We were on defense and WMU was stuck in the north end zone, but I don't know if that moment was on TV.
If it wasn't, it'd be nice to have some sort of video of it.
