Big 12 Schools Regognized in "Top 25 Traditions in College Football"
This is just another interesting read in Bleacher Report. Listed in the article are what they see as the "Top 25 Traditions in College Football." Four of the 25 top traditions as from Big 12 Conference schools. Here are the Big 12 listings:
#2 "Sea of Red" (Nebraska)
#14 "Running Ralphie" (Colorado)
#15 "Yell Practice" (Texas A & M)
#22 "Sooner Schooner" (Oklahoma)
Really not a whole lot to argue with the sentiments of the article other than I may have rated the "Cadets Marching In" at the Army/Navy game a little higher. I also may have rated the "Sooner Schooner" a little higher. As a Nebraska fan, I have seen that thing on the field so many times in big games over the past 50 years the schooner is just an image that is etched in my memory. I totally agree with their ranking Ohio State's band writing out the word "Ohio" as number-one. It doesn't matter how many times I see it, it is always a thing of beauty to watch!

As a Big 12 fan, I hadn't caught that, yaman. There is definitely a ton of tradition in the Big 10, er Little 11. As I mentioned, that Ohio State band thing is always worth watching. I have always loved the huge drum at Purdue, too.
At any rate, it was just an interesting article. I guess these tradtions are what makes college football what it is. Maybe that's part of the reason why I spend my Saturdays watching college football and do something on else on Sunday when the NFL comes on.
