Vulgar football chants

Postby Shorty » Sat Nov 16, 2013 5:24 pm

I agree with the Badger fans complaining about the vulgar football chants. It mars the game and makes it harder to enjoy. The students need to stop that or they should be ejected from the game.

Wait a minute, wouldn't football chants be vulgar by definition? Or do you just mean they are excessively offensive? There are multiple senses of vulgar, but football is going to be vulgar no matter how you cut it.

I always sat in section P and my favorite vulgar chant was set to "My Darling Clementine". For those of you unfamiliar, it goes:

I'm an asshole, I'm an asshole
I'm an asshole, that I know
But I'd rather be an asshole
Than to sit in section O!

O sucks, O sucks, O sucks...

OOOOOOOOOOO...

The one that draws the most ire is the "Eat shit -- Fuck you" chanted back and forth, which has been going on for at least 25 years. Pleading to the students to cease doing this is completely futile. The only possible way to stop it would be to threaten to not play Jump Around.

Yea, "Eat Shit/Fuck You" isn't going anywhere. I'm just happy that "Shoot Him Like A Horse" appears to have faded away.

I don't think threatening the students does any good either. A mob of drunken college students is always going to call that bluff, and then the rest of the season ticket holders will complain about not having Jump Around or the Fifth Quarter.

Yup, that's the only chant that really bothered me.

Yes, at LEAST and probably much longer than that. The Miller Lite ad campaign started in the early 70s. When did the parody chant start up?

I'll bet more than 75% of the alumni present at games today were students during this chant's lifetime and probably participated.

I was just going to post the same thing. The person in one article I read who complained was in his upper 40s. He would have been at the University as a student in the early-mid 80s. I am sure he was there for the chant back then.

That's a good one, but the inter-section rivalry has lost a lot of its meaning since students can pretty much sit in any section they want and even a different one for every game.

Unfortunately the very profane parody of Michigan's fight song has probably been forgotten by today's students since we haven't had a home game against the Wolverine's since 2009.

The next one is in 2017 (unbelievable, but that's for another thread). Gonna need a campus-wide educational effort leading up to that.

If you think football games are bad, go to a hockey game. It's been a while for me, but when I went the vulgar chanting never stops.
