    Best College Fight Song

    Who's got it? Let's leave ISU out of the discussion altogether.

    I'm a big fan of Tennessee's "Rocky Top".

    Re: Best College Fight Song

    I like Georgia's fight song really well. Their alma mater is really cool, too. (Fun fact- the lyrics of UGA's "Alma Mater" fit perfectly into ISU's "Bells of Iowa State". I noticed this when I was in UGA's bookstore this week.)

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Seems like a lot of fight songs do this, as well. Iowa's and ISU's lyrics are interchangeable, and I think Minnesota/Wisconsin's fight song lyrics do the same thing.

    Re: Best College Fight Song

    I really like USCs (Southern Cal, not the 'Cocks)... and perhaps because of sentimental reasons I have to say I like Notre Dame's after hearing their band play it while marching right in front of my father and I before they entered ND stadium... sent chills down my spine (good chills).


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I haven't been able to stomach USC's fight song since the Orange Bowl when they slaughtered Iowa. It was played just as much as OU plays theirs.

    Re: Best College Fight Song

    I love TAMU's "Noble Men of Kyle". Others I like are Nebraska's "Hail Varsity", Michigan's "Hail to the Victors", Navy's "Anchors Aweigh" and the Notre Dame Victory March. Fight songs are one of the things that separate college football from other sports.

    Yep, that's it. I always use this when I create my own team in NCAA Football games. I've never really figured out why, it just has that ring to it.

    LOL!! Iowa gave them too many reasons to play it throughout the game....

    That's the same reason I can't stand USC's band. They play two songs ALL the time, and it's unbelievably annoying. Not to mention their band is pretty much full of a-holes, according to pretty much every band they've visited.

    Eh, that's a pretty huge stretch. You can do it if you really try hard, but they don't really lend themselves to other lyric/tune combinations, what with weird word stresses and pauses (or lack thereof).

    Yep. Fixed it for you.

    I like really anything Texas A&M plays. But my favorite fight song would have to be Michigan's Hail to the Victors.
