“Yeah, they should change it. … It won’t be as big because they’re not in the conference anymore.”

“Yeah. … If they left us, they should leave our song, too.”

It's pathetic how education has taken a back seat to a bunch of babies playing with balls just to see who can get the biggest bag of money dropped at their feet.

It could say something about stomping on local, Lawrence businesses... first by moving the Border War to KCMO then bullying joecollege out of business.

It's a tradition. I say leave it. No one sings the words other than "I'm a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk" because everyone is so focused on the clapping part anyway!

Let it be, yeah, let it be, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Then they will go and add or delete a team to the Big 12(10), then we will have to change it again. status quo

I still have an old (empty) bottle of the Jayhawk bourbon. Good times they were.

I'll have to think about it. I like the tweaking idea. I still drink a pre-game quart of Old Jayhawk bourbon from a couple of cases I bought before they banned it, and I tweak pretty hard before every game. Off hand, I guess they could change the title to"Rip His Tweakin' Head Off".

Autie has been concerned about the fight song since this whole thing got rolling. I agree, let JackFrost write it.

The Cornhuskers wailed on us most of the time. We only won twice since I was born. They will be at the top of the Big 10/12 soon. Especially since the West of that conf is the weak side. They will probably playing for a conf championship the first year and probably this year in the Big 12/10.

Can't we still husk some corn and make the Cornhuskers wail?

Leave it alone.

I"d leave it to JackFrost to change the lyrics. The only wailing those cornhusker boys will be doing is that as the doormat of that other conference.

Does our fight song have reference to those two?

I suppose after 13 years here (& holy god I hadn't thought about it but has it been that long?) I should know our fight song. Oh well

Sure! I propose instead of singing about the competition between sports teams, instead sing about corporate greed, destroying the fan base in favor of bloated salaries and underused sports complexes, and under the table deals! Why pussyfoot around? Sing about what is really important, cutting each others throats while climbing to the top! Hey, while you're at it, throw in a verse about surrounding yourself with lackeys who can take the blame if everything goes in the toilet. Call it,"I knew you when you were nothing,and you still are".

Listen for it to play on late night infomercials soon. Only $9.95 plus shipping and handling fees, taxes due at time of order. Offer void where possibility of investigation may occur.
