    Best College Football Traditions

    In contrast to the "Worst College Football Traditions" thread...

    -Victory songs. "Country Roads, Take Me Home" (West Virginia), "Hang on Sloopy" (Ohio State), "In Heaven There is no Beer" (sorry guys; it's the one Iowa tradition I envy), "Hey Baby" (LSU).

    -Live mascots. Love 'em. Ralphie, Bevo, Uga, Baylor's on-campus bear pit, Sooner Schooner, Masked Raider. Only on that sucks is Reveille (A&M's collie).

    -Florida State and the burning spear being thrown into the 50 yard line.

    -Wisconsin's 5th quarter


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Not sure if it counts as a tradition, but I love hearing Rocky Top

    I also love Hawaii's pregame ritual

    Agree. It narrowly missed my cut. Not sure if a Fight Song is a tradition, but that one would be up there.

    This is bad ***. The Seminoles (who never surrendered to the US) are just very cool and it's cool that they're down with FSU.

    Yup. The one tribe who realizes it's an honor and not a racist joke to be the official mascot for the school.

    Isn't Chief Osceola always an actual Seminole?

    IIRC, yes. I've never been to an FSU game but the moment he stakes the burning spear into the turf must just be nutz in the stadium.

    The Army / Navy game is tradition soaked from before it starts to after it's over. I'd love to experience it.

    I agree, I would say it's in my top three games to watch every year no matter how good or bad they are.

    This. Nothing better then watching the cadets and midshipmen march out onto the field during the pregame.
