    What was going on in the SE corner of the stands at WV game?

    What was happening in the SE corner of the stands at the West Virginia game yesterday that had 4 or 5 sections watching, chanting something, and booing? I think it was 2nd quarter, a West Virginia player was down and being attended to, and boos were heard and I thought a chant that sounded like "We Want More" but I could be mistaken.

    Also, apologies if this was covered elsewhere...but I didn't seen anything in the other threads I read.

    WE WANT THE HORN!!!!
    We have our horn guy that plays after Cyclone 1st downs.

    For the last several years, he and security have gone back and forth, and they've repeatedly taken the horn away, then let it go, then taken it. Very inconsistent.

    This year, they let it go all year until yesterday afternoon. When they took it, the SE corner (and the end zone, too, I think) decided that we wanted to stand up for our horn guy. We chanted "WE WANT THE HORN!" over and over, and eventually security relented and gave the guy his horn.

    It was a good moment of standing up to the man over something that's just a fun horn at a football game. It was a couple, I'd say late 40s or early 50s, that apparently made the complaint. That's who security took time to speak with on the way to returning the horn.

    WE WANT THE HORN!!!!!

    Why does security bother taking Horn Guy's horn?

    I guess it's against some rule. I don't know the rule specifically, but I think someone mentioned that it's related to sportsmanship or something.

    I've never understood the problem. We're cheering first downs. It's not exactly the most threatening thing I've seen. It's fun at a football game.

    Is there another guy that does the horn in the student section too then? Because I recall having a horn in the student section at least once this year and a few times in previous years.

    Yes. For at least a couple years, it was a pair of brothers, one in the student section and one in section 18.
    I don't know if it's still brothers in the 2 sections by now. I'm assuming that the student one may have graduated and passed the horn onto someone else. I don't know, though. They're 10 or 15 rows ahead of me.

    Thanks for the explanation, as well as the others who elaborated and added. I was in the upper level and a section or two to the right and everyone was wondering and trying to figure out what was happening. The chant wasn't really clear where we were.

    Well that stinks. I took my fiancee to the Tech game, and we were in 17. The horn was great. Added to the atmosphere and fun. Sorry to hear it got taken.

    I believe we also have that rule to stop that. I do like the horn guy but I just hope they don't let anyone else do it because most people are just annoying with it. The guy that does it now does it very responsibly...if it makes sense to say that about someone playing the horn.

    I was on the other side of the stadium and figured that was what was happening. Some one asked what was going on and I told them I was pretty sure the staff was taking the horn away.

    Sec 17,18,19 are by far the best cheering sections in the crowd. I love you guys!
