RR-Era Slogans/Signs

Submitted by Corey on January 19th, 2011 at 12:58 PM

Just a point of discussion I was wondering about...

What does everybody think Hoke will/should do with the new slogans and signs that were put up during the Rich Rodriguez era?  Will "Hard Edge" stay?  What about "Hold the Rope?"  I think Barwis had another one put up, too, but I can't remember or find a reference to it.  Will Hoke keep them, or go his own way?

Thoughts?

Does anyone remember the one that was put up at the beginning of the RR era that had the misspelling?  I remember it happening, but I can't remember what it was.

As for the actual question, I'd like to see them stay.  It's part of the history now, for better or wose.

Was in the sign that supposedly read:

THROUGH THESE DOORS WALK THE BEST-CONDITIONED, MOST DISCIPLINED AND HARDEST WORKING FOOTBALL TEAM IN AMERICA.

That sign is supposedly captured photographically here:

And the grammatical error is that the verb and subject don't match.  A "team" "walks," and individual football players "walk."

But if somebody did in fact mess that up, it was corrected long ago.  And I don't think Rich Rodriguez was going to Kinko's to supervise sign production in any event, before or after this grammatically-correct sign was posted:

was is that it wasn't a way of life, it was just a sign that was completely incompatible with the team, the team did not have a hard edge, its consistency was more pudding like.  I am hoping for a hard edge at some point in the future, maybe they can leave it up as more like a mission statement.

I wouldn't mind seeing them stay, but it seems like the new staff would replace them with similarly motivating slogans (Harder Edge?).  Thankfully, just because something is fixed on a wall or stadium edge, doesn't mean it can't be removed (see: Stadium Halo).  

I imagine other phrases like "all in" will just die a quiet death.
