College classics

On a sports talk show I was listening to, they were discussing the best entrances in college football. There is a show airing on Saturday, Aaron’s best entrances in the south. A little did you know is that Arkansas, West Virginia have been using 2001 since the 70’s. A guy called in and said that Carolina actually stole the show from Arkansas and West Virginia. I just wanted to know who you think has the best entrance. Is it Clemson and there stupid rock or Colorado and the buffalo running around the field. A couple other classic might be ‘the bear” on the jumbo screen in Alabama, or the Seminole Indian throwing the spear at FSU.

I've attended a couple of West Virginia games where they played 2001 as the team entered. However, it is not as exciting as the entrance at Willy B.

This doesn't happen at every entrance, but the funniest one I've ever seen was when the guy who ties down the American flag at Ohio State games comes running out of the tunnel (I guess they have to do this procedure really fast) with the rope and trips, falls and does a face plant into the huge flag pole. The funniest part was everyone trying to help him up and he was pushing them away so he could tie down the flag. Classic

The entrance itself isn' that great (because it's anticlimactic), but Auburn's pregrame is pretty awesome. The band moving the AU all the way down the field and War Eagle is pretty sweet.

FSU has a good one as does the O-Hi-O State with dotting the i and Bill you sure do like Auburn (do agree except why two mascots with Auburn...war eagles or tigers?)

Yeah another classic was the hurricane game against NC State back in 1999. Lou's first game to a terrible season, started with Cocky tripping and rolling down the hill at NC State.

Oh, and the Sooners have a good entrance, amazing how a horse and buggy can fire up a crowd.

There is a survey on espn.com that discusses some of this and asks questions on who has a great entrance, check it out here (just cut and paste)......

War Eagle isn't a mascot, Ritch. It's a "battle cry," aka a cheer. And yes I do like Auburn.

i remember that hurricane game against nc state...the only game i ever went to without even smelling a beer. im standing at the bottom of the hill with my sister and all her fca friends freezing my ass off when all the drunk kids realize how funny it would be to slide from the top and make human bowling pins out of all the sober christians. 150ish total yards that game and d-wat ran for 126 of them...

Drunken FCA bowling sounds like a damn good time. oh how I would have enjoyed that

ritch said...

I stand corrected Bill, thank you.

There's a 'War Eagle' flying in the stadium.. sounds like a mascot to me.

But if you wanted to argue that Auburn football players aren't actually students I'd agree.
