    Worst College Sports Traditions

    What do you think are some of the worst college sports traditions?

    Texas A&M "Gig Em" - WTF does this mean, is it a word? Is it supposed to be intimidating, or just confuse the opponent into oblivion?

    Texas A&M "Male Cheerleaders" - What is with A&M and the Homo Erotic Traditions?

    Kansas "Rock Chalk Jayhawk Chant" - Sound like a lullaby I sing my daughter to put her to sleep

    Kansas Waving The Wheat after every Jayhawk touchdown. It's just weird.

    What's worse is that when Aggy yells "Gig Em", they give a thumbs up. So any time you give a thumbs up around an Ag, they immediately think you are on their side. Totally killed the "thumbs up" gesture for me.

    Also, all southern schools having some sort of hand gesture. "Guns Up" (Texas Tech and Okie Light), "Hook 'em" (Texas), "Lil Bunny Foo-Foo" (TCU), "Bear Claw" (Baylor), etc.

    Nebraska "Lil Red" - Time for a real mascot costume

    Stanford Tree Mascot - Makes No Sense at all

    Auburn "Rolling of the Trees" - I used to TP things in High School, but then I grew up (Not cool that the trees were poisoned though)

    Also Yelling "Go Hawks" every 10 seconds. Defeats the purpose when you overuse your chant, it just gets annoyingly stupid.

    Re: Worst College Sports Traditions

    For me - the Texas A&M Yell Leaders.

    I understand the history, but yells and motions are just stupid.

    Funny story with that, my step-father (a big republican), was commenting to me after the Texas A&M game how stupid and gay the yell leaders look. I then let him know that Rick Perry (Texas governor) was a yell leader and he about drove off the road. I believe I just narrowed his field of possible republican presidential candidates by 1.

    Reminds me of us. I am always asked why our mascot is a bird. I give a lot of ISU history lessons in Maryland.

    Re: Worst College Sports Traditions

    A&M's "Gig Em" must be a misinterpreted homo-erotic reference to "Gag Em."

    I haven't heard the "Guns Up" reference to TT, but my cousin (who attended TT) always said "Wreck 'em Tech" ...a little better, but not by much.

    Anything Nebraska just plain suxorz teh big one111.

    I would call this an overall "worst sports fan chant," not just an Iowa State one. Even the NFL teams are getting into it.

    Not sure I'd call it a "tradition" right now...
