Rich Rodriguez chant in 1st quarter at Big house

Crazy that I witnessed this considering I sit in Section 24 where many alumni and season ticket holders sit but these two older alums in front of me were chatting about the -9 yards of total offense on our first possession. Then, when we failed to do anything on our second possession, the older of the two, probably about 70 years old stood up and started chanting Rich Rod Rig Uez as he pumped his fist. Several others joined him for about 6-7 repetitions and I thought to myself, wow, how far we have fallen and how divided the fan base still is. They later remarked that at least the games were entertaining before Borgess came along. Now we lose and it's painful to watch

Student Chant

Student Chant

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!

Go Blue!

Soccer chants at football games

I am surprised at the number of soccer fans on this board including our leader and savior, Brian.  With that, I'm sure most of us fans are familiar with the chants and cheers that go on during matches and I was wondering if any college football teams have adopted anything like that and could you see Michigan doing it.  I'm not talking Seven Nation Army or even You'll Never Walk Alone but more player specific.  I get pretty annoyed when ND fans do the "Hughes" moan because it's rather boring.  I was thinking something more along the lines of That Boy Ronaldo or the Torres Armband chant.

(Link in case I suck and the video doesn't show)

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?

Kickoff Cheer

Kickoff Cheer

Submitted by The Barwis Effect on September 8th, 2009 at 12:17 AM

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?

Video Request

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.
