Texas A&M’s head yell leader responds to coarse fan chants at Kyle Field

The city of College Station, Texas, has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. Memo Salinas, the Texas A M’s Head Yell Leader, has replied to crude fan chants made by Aggies during Saturday’s game versus Kent State at Kyle Field. Salinas stated in an email to the whole university that while the Aggies appreciated the fans’ enthusiasm, the University of Texas at Austin’s Core Values must still be reflected at all athletic events. According to Salinas in the email, “Texas A M is a cut above the competition.” The Aggies’ Core Values of excellence, honesty, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service are demonstrated and lived out in all that we do, according to the university.

  • In the past, if we disagreed with something, especially during a sporting event, we would communicate our disagreement in a unique way, according to Salinas: by hissing.
  • As Texas A M prepares for their next football game against Colorado on Sept.
  • “Thank you for your unwavering love and support for Aggie Football and our student athletes, and for helping to make Texas A&M the finest institution in the country,” Salinas expressed gratitude to the fans.

  1. Texas A&M is a university that is founded on the principles of tradition. A tradition is the thread that connects one generation of Aggies to another, and it can be found in everything from Silver Taps and Ring Dance to Muster. The common experience of taking part in these rituals helps to strengthen the bonds that exist amongst all Aggies. The idea that an Aggie who graduated in 2010 can sit down and chat about going through the same experiences as an Aggie who graduated in 1950 is just one of the many things that distinguishes A M from other universities in the country. Many of these traditions revolve on the football team and the football games that take place on Saturdays during the Fall season at the school. The vast majority of them were established while A M was an all-male military institution. This article will take a look at some of the traditions that are associated with Texas A&M football matches.
  1. As the name suggests, the boot in Boot Line refers to the senior boots worn by members of the Corps of Cadets during their final year at A M. The University of Texas at Austin was established in 1876 as an all-male military academy. Women were first admitted to the school in 1960, when it became an established institution. After a few years, they no longer required students to be enrolled at A M in order to be a member of the Corps of Cadets. The Corps of Cadets still has around 2,000 members at A M in modern times. Riding boots, which are worn by senior members of the Corps, differentiate them from their peers. During halftime, all of the seniors descend onto Kyle Field and form a human tunnel for the football team to run through as they exit the locker room
  2. This is known as Boot Line.
  1. Kyle Field is home to 55 American Flags, which are flown on game days across the stadium. The flags are positioned atop the third deck and surround the entirety of the playing area. Each of the 55 Aggies who fought in World War I and made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation is represented by a different flag on the wall. The flags are only flown on game days, and they are taken down at the conclusion of each contest. They serve as a monument to ensure that we never forget those who lost their lives in the sake of liberty.
  1. When A M was an all-male military institution, they used to invite female students in for football games on weekends, which they did via train. A game in 1907 saw the football team suffer a humiliating defeat, and the Aggies realized that their dates from Texas Women’s University in Denton, who had traveled down from Denton, were losing interest in the game as a result. Some upperclassmen requested that some of the freshmen provide entertainment for the TWU students. The freshman donned white janitors’ clothes and walked to the track around the field, where they led chants and provided entertainment for the spectators. They were a hit, and it was determined that they would be included in the game day experience in some way next year. After a short period of time, the upperclassmen saw that all of their dates were paying more attention to the freshmen on the field than they were to each other. Upperclassmen have taken over the job, and now you must be a junior or senior to hold the post of Yell Leader. A general election is held to select the Yell Leaders, who are chosen by their fellow students. The Yell Leaders direct screams at games and represent A M at a variety of events around the state and country.
  1. They used to bring girls into A M on the weekends for the football games when it was an all-male military institution back in the day. A game in 1907 saw the football team suffer a humiliating defeat, and the Aggies realized that their dates from Texas Women’s University in Denton, who had traveled down to support the team, were losing interest in the sport. Freshmen were selected by upperclassmen to provide entertainment for TWU students. A group of freshmen dressed in white janitors’ uniforms and took to the track around the field, where they led screams and provided entertainment for the audience. They were a hit, and it was determined that they would be included in the game day experience in some way moving forward. A few weeks into the season, the upperclassmen realized that all of their dates seemed to be paying more attention to the freshmen on the field than to them. Upperclassmen have taken over the job, and you must now be a junior or senior in order to be a Yell Leader anymore. A national election is held to select the Yell Leaders, who are chosen by their fellow peers. These individuals direct screams at games and represent A M at several events around the state and country.

A game in 1907 saw the football team suffer a humiliating defeat, and the Aggies realized that their dates from Texas Women’s University in Denton, who had traveled down to support the team, were losing interest in the game. Freshmen were selected by upperclassmen to provide entertainment for the TWU students. The freshmen donned white janitors’ clothes and walked to the track encircling the field, where they led chants and provided entertainment for the audience. Following their success, it was determined that they would be included in the game day experience. After a little while, the upperclassmen realized that all of their dates were paying more attention to the freshmen on the field than they were to them. Upperclassmen have taken over the job, and you must now be a junior or senior in order to be a Yell Leader. The Yell Leaders are chosen by the students in a democratic process. The Yell Leaders direct screams at games and represent A M at a variety of events around the state and country.
  1. When the Aggies are winning home football games, the freshman in the Corps of Cadets will congregate on the track that surrounds the football field at the end of the game. As soon as the game is over, the freshmen will run down and tackle the Yell Leaders in the middle of the field. They will then transport them off the field and across campus, where they will be dumped in a fountain that has been called the “Fish Pond” by students. The Shout Leaders will then conduct a yell practice from the Fish Pond to the rest of the field. A 26-0 victory over Texas prompted the freshman to chase down the senior Yell Leaders and throw them into the fountain, which established a tradition that has continued ever since.
  1. Every school has its own school song or anthem, which is sung by the students. In the 1920s, J.V. “Pinky” Downs wrote the “War Hymn,” which became the official battle song for Texas A&M. The song is sung every time the Aggies take the field. The War Hymn is sung by the Aggies before the game, after the game, and in the third and fourth quarters of the game, among other times. The last phrase of the War Hymn is particularly memorable, since it features Aggies interlocking arms and swaying back and forth. Swaying from side to side, as if they were cutting something, is how the Aggie’s perform the song “Saw Varsity’s Horns Off.” When Texas was known as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, Aggies referred to it as “Varsity” or “Varsity College.” When the Aggies are sawing into the stands, the press box at the top of the third deck will rock three to four inches from side to side, depending on the intensity of the sawing. When visiting members of the press witness this phenomenon for the first time, it results in some amusing facial expressions on their faces.
  1. A M used to bring their dates in on the train, and this practice dated back to those days. It is a rather straightforward custom. It is customary for you to kiss your date when the A M football team scores on the pitch. This practice was undoubtedly established during more conservative times, and it provided an opportunity for Aggies to have a little action in the stands.

Aggie Yells

We’ve had screams at Texas A M since before we were known as “Aggies” (a moniker that has been in use unofficially since the 1910s) and even before Kyle Field was a field (first bleachers built in 1905). Here’s an oldie from 1896 that contemporary Aggie students took on with enthusiasm: According to Henry Dethloff’s “A Centennial History of Texas A & M University,” that was the first A M College scream to be formally approved. The meaning of the phrase “Boom! Cis! Bah!” will be discussed further down.

  1. Rah!
  2. Rate!
  3. A memorial library dedicated to Cushing, Kansas.
  4. It is written in the 1906yell book that the phrases “Hullabaloo!
  5. Caneck!” and “Chick-gar-roo-gar-rem!” emerge.
  6. Rough, tough, and down-to-earth stuff!
  7. Some cries were no longer heard: “Pull Ponies Tail Out,” according to a 1931 shout book, is a companion scream to “Saw Varsity’s Horns Off” that is also SMU-themed.

Although “Beat The Hell” was first used as an official scream in 1969 in conjunction with a passback sign, the sentiment was already well-known to Aggies, who had been yelling it once after each football game in anticipation of the next opponent.

As reported in a 1967 Battalion article, a former shout leader from 1942 stated that the scream “Fifteen for Team” still comprised 15 repetitions of “Rah!” in 1915, but that the number was eventually reduced to nine, and finally to three repetitions.

This remained true even into at least the 1990s and maybe beyond.

Aggies have been chanting “Gig ’em” for at least a hundred years, according to the University of Alabama yearbook.

Patrick Danielczyk ’03 is a member of the class of 2003.

Here’s something else to know: Part of the 1896 A M yell, “Boom!

Bah!” was likely inspired by what is known as the “first collegiate cheer,” the “skyrocket yell,” which was adopted by Princeton as early as the 1850s from military usage, and in which “sis-boom-bah” is the skyrocket: a hiss and explosion followed by the exclamation “ah” from the audience.

We are interested in hearing from you! What changes have occurred in yelling since your “Old Army” days?

Aggie War Hymn – Wikipedia

The Aggie War Hymn is the war hymn of Texas A & M University; the institution does not have a battle song, as stated by the university.

Lyrics

History

J.V. “Pinky” is a nickname for J.V. Wilson, one of several Aggies who served in World War I, is credited as being the primary songwriter of the song, according to the song’s attribution. Wilson put together a song called “Good-bye to Texas University” that included many Aggie screams. While holed up in a trench during a war in France in 1918, he penned the lyrics on the back of a letter from home, which was sent to him. After the Armistice was signed and before he went to the United States, he set the lyrics to music and recorded them.

  • According to Aggie folklore, at the intermission of a movie in a Bryan, TX theater one night in 1920, some of the Aggie Yell Leadersoverheard Wilson’s quartet singing the song.
  • The group approached him at the conference and requested him to allow them to enter his work (the War Hymn) into a competition for a new fight song that would be conducted in the autumn.
  • In preparation for the tournament, they practiced together after tending cattle in the evenings throughout the summer.
  • During one of these unauthorized midnight cries, the contest for the fight song was held.
  • Due to its popularity, the song was formally accepted and given its current title in the fall of 1997.
  • It begins with the M1892 Field Trumpet in G, which is the “bugle” that is still in use today, and concludes with the M1894 Field Trumpet in B-flat, which is the “bugle” that is no longer in use (aka, the “Trench Bugle”).
  • The Fighting Texas Aggie Band’s halftime concert has traditionally opened with the drum major yelling “Go Aggies!” for many years “Make a mental note!
  • Caneck!” is usually believed to have been inspired by an Old Army song from the 1940s.
  • Williams, who humorously described the term as “Beat the heck out of the University of Texas” in Chickasaw Indian language.
  • The new words are included into the song’s first stanza, which is now the first verse.
  • So in practice, the second (original) verse is frequently sung twice, whereas the third verse is performed once.

Aggie supporters join their arms and legs together and swing left and right in imitation of the action of a saw blade after the second stanza has been repeated twice; this is termed as “sawing Varsity’s horns off” by the media (before theTexas football teamadopting the Longhorn as the official mascot, the team was simply known as “Varsity”).

It was common for sportswriters who had never covered an Aggie game before to become nervous, despite the fact that a sign in the press box warned that “the press box will move during the Aggie War Song.” Renovations carried out following the 2014 season helped to mitigate the swaying impact to some extent.

According to USA Today, the song was ranked as the No.

From 1983 to 1995, it was also utilized by NASA Flight DirectorGerry Griffin to wake up astronauts in orbit.

Members of Pinky Wilson’s family were recognized on Kyle Field at a ceremony commemorating the 100th anniversary of the hymn’s composition.

They were honored near the 50-yard line in front of the combined band. The hymn was sung at the State Funeral of President George H. W. Bush, from his arrival in College Station through his interment at the Bush Library, as part of the State Funeral.

References

  • ‘Pinky’ J.V. (James Victor) Wilson, one of several Aggies who participated in World War I, is credited with being the principal songwriter of the song, according to the song’s authorship. As part of the song “Good-bye to Texas University,” Wilson blended a number of Aggie screams. While holed up in a trench during a war in France in 1918, he penned the words on the back of a letter from home, which he sent home. After the Armistice was signed and before he went to the United States, he set the lyrics to music and recorded it. When Wilson returned to Texas A&M in 1919, the song was regularly performed by a quartet he had recruited, known as the “Cast-Iron Quartet,” which Wilson had arranged himself. According to Aggie folklore, during the intermission of a movie at a Bryan, TX theater one night in 1920, some of the Aggie Yell Leaders overheard Wilson’s quartet singing the song. Due to their enthusiasm for the song, they decided to meet with him after the normal program had ended to discuss it. He agreed to let them submit his work (the War Hymn) to a contest for the creation of an original war song, which would take place in the fall. It didn’t take long for Wilson and his quartet to agree to sing the Aggie War Hymn during the competition. This summer, they gathered after tending cattle in the evenings to sharpen their abilities in preparation for the event. In spite of the fact that unauthorized rituals were staged before to games during this time period, they were not officially sanctioned by the University. It was during one of these unauthorized midnight cries that the fight song contest was held. After the evening dinner, it was hosted in front of Sbisa Hall’s courtyard. Due to its popularity, the song was formally accepted and given its current title in the fall of 1989. In Camp Victory, Iraq, a group of Aggie troops performs the section of the war song titled “Saw Varsity’s Horns Off.” Beginning withRecall, an old bugle call, in two distinct keys of the bugles used by the United States Army during World War I, this song is notable for its startling resemblance to the tune. Beginning with the M1892 Field Trumpet in G, which is still in use today, and concluding with the M1894 Field Trumpet in B-flat, this list includes every field trumpet made between 1892 and 1894 in the United States (aka, the “Trench Bugle”). A allusion to Texas A&M’s history as a military school is intended. The Fighting Texas Aggie Band’s halftime concert has traditionally began with the drum major yelling, “Go Aggies!” for many years “It’s important to remember. “Hullabaloo!” is a fun song to start the night.” A popular theory is that the song’s opening line, “Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!” came about because of an Old Army song. Texas A&M University president Jack K. Williams humorously characterized the Aggie shout as “Beat the crap out of the University of Texas,” in a letter addressed in 1907 to the university’s students. The original song is actually the second verse of the hymn
  • In 1938, Wilson added another verse to the hymn at the request of several Aggie students who felt the original song was too focused on the Aggies’ rivalry with the University of Texas and wanted to see the Aggies win the national championship. A section of the song’s first verse has been rewritten to include these new lyrics. Many people believed that the opening lyric sounded too much like anIvy Leaguesong, and as a result, it was never popular. The second (original) stanza is generally performed twice, as a result of which it is commonly known as the “double verse.” ‘Goodbye to texas university,’ begins the second stanza
  • These lines were selected because the Aggies refer to their main athletic adversary, Texas, as “texas university,” or “t.u.,” rather than “U.T. “, when referring to their chief sporting rival. In addition, in practice, the phrase “sounds like hell” is placed after the line “that is the song they sing so beautifully,” although the word is not formally included in the song as a part of the lyrics. Aggie supporters join their arms and legs together and swing left and right in imitation of the action of a saw blade after the second stanza has been repeated twice
  • This is characterized as “sawing Varsity’s horns off” by some (before theTexas football teamadopting the Longhorn as the official mascot, the team was simply known as “Varsity”). For years, when this occurred during football games at Kyle Field, the whole west upper deck, including the press box, would tremble violently in response. Even though a sign in the press box warned that “the press box will move during the Aggie War Hymn,” sportswriters who hadn’t covered an Aggie game before were sometimes frightened by it. A little amount of swaying was minimized by improvements made following the 2014 season. In the last chorus, “There’ll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight,” the singer promises that it will be a fun night in the old town. During the 1997 college football season, USA Today ranked the song as the top fight song. From 1983 to 1995, it was also used to wake up astronauts in orbit by NASA Flight DirectorGerry Griffin. For former Texas A&M University student and mission specialistMike Fossum, the music served as a wake-up call on Day 11 of space missionSTS-121. Pinky Wilson’s family members were recognized near the 50-yard line in front of the combined band at a ceremony on Kyle Field to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the hymn’s composition. When George H. W. Bush died, the song was played at the State Funeral for him, from his arrival in College Station until his interment at the Bush Library in College Station.

Aggies could benefit from a little less ‘nice’

Texas A&M welcomed fans to Kyle Field at full capacity for the first time in nearly two years last Saturday, and while the sight of more than 97,000 Aggies decked out in red, white, and blue was awe-inspiring, it appears that some of the comments coming from the Texas A&M student section were not well received by the university’s leadership. The yelling of “bullshit” after a number of penalties were called against the Aggies was the most notable. This resulted in the creation of this letter to the 12th Man, which was posted on the Texas A M Yell Leaders Twitter account.

  • However, I believe the remainder of this letter refers to a broader culture at A M.
  • Aggies like cheering for their team, but we find that being courteous is frequently more more enjoyable.
  • I’m “pleasant” in almost every sense of the term, according to almost everyone.
  • The ability of sports to show good and evil, right and wrong in such a black and white manner is one of the great delights of living in a society riddled with gray regions.
  • Being a supporter of your own team is fantastic, but being a supporter of your opponent is even better.
  • And, please, don’t tell me that hissing is somehow more elitist than booing; that would be ridiculous.
  • I appreciate the many special things that we do as fans that help to make this such a unique venue to watch a football game, but hissing is definitely not one of those things.
  • We should always be friendly and inviting to opposing supporters.
  • Treat them with the fundamental decency that every human being is entitled to.
  • The (good-natured) rivalry that exists amongst college football fanbases is an important element of what makes the sport so enjoyable.
  • You may be an enthusiastic supporter of the Boy Scouts without becoming a member of the organization (or Girl Scout).

Sports should, above all things, be enjoyable. Moreover, make no mistake: rooting against our opponent and booing a wrong call is entertaining. Make a spectacle of yourself.

How Texas A&M’s Zach Calzada Wrote His Own History Against Alabama

COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has the opportunity to make a decision. The Aggies were knotted with No. 1 Alabama at 38 points apiece and had just gotten a punt. Would he be willing to do it? Do you think it’s worth it for him to bring in a quarterback who needed assistance getting off the field after a 25-yard touchdown pass to wide out Ainias Smith? Perhaps Zach Calzada made the choice on his behalf. In this game, he arrived as possibly college football’s most scrutinized quarterback, and he was not going to let the game end without one more drive under his belt.

  1. He felt the weight of the world on his shoulders, knowing that A M’s hopes of making it to the College Football Playoff were almost certainly over.
  2. They were dissatisfied because the season, which had been billed as something extraordinary, was disappearing quickly.
  3. “CAL-ZA-DA!
  4. CAL-ZA-DA!” He delivered once more, as he had done throughout the night.
  5. Alabama is on its way out.
  6. Welcome to the annals of history, youngster.
  7. Who knows what the future holds for Texas A&M (4-2, 1-2 SEC) after a 41-38 upset of No.

Who would have imagined that this would be the conclusion as the day started on Saturday?

It made a little comeback against the Bulldogs at home, but it was much too little, far too late.

It lived up to the preseason expectations, and Calzada was a key player in the greatest upset in college football this season, which occurred at the University of Texas.

He completed 10 consecutive throws, two of which were for touchdowns, to give A M a 17-7 lead in the first quarter.

It was time for halftime.

Things change in a short period of time.

Calzada was inches away from connecting with Smith for what would have been a 50-yard touchdown.

A 29-yard touchdown throw from Bryce Young, an early candidate for the Heisman Trophy, put the Tide ahead by a touchdown.

Following Mississippi State’s defeat to the Aggies, social media went insane over the Aggies.

Calzada was the one who received the brunt of it.

Twitter erupted in support of Calzada when he was sacked in the end zone for a safety, thus ending the game for Michigan State.

“There isn’t a position in any sport that is more difficult to play than quarterback.” This time, though, the Aggie supporters rallied around their quarterback.

On first down, he connected with Smith for a 17-yard gain.

As the pocket began to disintegrate, Calzada hurled a throw downfield to Smith, who ran it in for the touchdown.

He was suffocated by a pair of Alabama defenders and required assistance from the coaching staff to get off the field.

Freshman walk-ons are welcome.

Calzada walked out of the medical tent like a fighter on the verge of winning a fight.

The sport of football is defined as follows: “That’s what football is.” “You get off the canvas and go about.

“I’ve got to get to the next play.” There have only been a handful of quarterbacks who have been able to bring down the Tide throughout the Saban era of coaching.

2 Texas A&M, 41-38.

All were expected to begin prior to the start of the season.

Perhaps Fisher takes advantage of the situation and runs it back with Calzada.

Everything Fisher witnessed while at camp came to life in his imagination.

This Texas A&M football locker room video will make you run through a wall

Football at Texas A&M Credit is required: Thomas Shea-USA TODAY SportsTheTexas On Saturday, a Michigan football team earned one of the greatest victories in school history by defeating a Nick Saban-led Alabama squad that appeared unstoppable at the time. With a 19-game winning run under their belt, it didn’t appear like they would ever lose again. In the end, they did win, and it was because to his former assistant Jimbo Fisher, who took home the victory on his birthday in the process. And, as you might guess, everyone associated with Texas A M football was ecstatic, with supporters swarming the field and players celebrating amid the throngs of onlookers.

This Texas A M football locker room video will have you ready to run through a brick wall

The video team was able to catch up with the Aggies after the throng had dissipated and they had returned to the dressing room. And what they caught will send chills down anyone’s spine. Take a look at the Texas A&M Football Twitter account to see for yourself. Video begins with Kenyon Green holding a football in his hands, an offensive lineman who is widely considered to be the team’s most valuable player. The Alabama head coach’s 24-0 record versus past coaches prompts him to proclaim Jimbo Fisher as “the first coach to beat Nick Saban,” a claim that Jimbo Fisher disputes.

Green then goes on to remind everyone in the room that Fisher didn’t simply beat Nick Saban on any random day; Fisher did it on his 56th birthday, to everyone’s surprise.

As a result, cries of “Jimbo, Jimbo, Jimbo” erupted.

I’m not going to go into detail about the dance, but I will say this: we should be thankful that Fisher’s college football coaching talents much outweigh his ability to pull off a dance routine.

The Texas A M football team displayed real team chemistry in and after this win

In addition to showing chemistry when they were down, backing quarterback Zach Calzada after a number of subpar performances resulted in two defeats for the Aggies, this squad exhibited a lot of excitement in the locker room while they were winning. This video demonstrates that Fisher isn’t simply operating a factory to produce players who will eventually make it to the NFL – he’s also providing these players with a fantastic experience in a fantastic atmosphere. The Aggies may not be the championship contender that we expected them to be at the start of the season, but their victory has made things incredibly intriguing in the Southeastern Conference.

Texas A&M’s Yell Leaders Are The Cringiest Thing In College Football And People Are Just Finding Out

  • For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Texas A M Yell Leaders, let this to serve as an introduction
  • They are the most obnoxious tradition in college football, and their origins aren’t especially interesting or noteworthy
  • More football coverage may be seen by clicking HERE.

It’s no secret that Texas A M football is a cult, and the “Midnight Yell” is the ideal representation of this. Before every game, the supporters congregate at Kyle Field — or at a specified spot on the road — to rehearse their chants and yells in preparation for the following day’s game. Five “Yell Leaders” are in responsible of leading the cheers, which are referred to as “yells” in college station, according to the official website.

The occasion is significant, yet the situation could not be more uncomfortable and cringe-inducing. In fact, it is the most cringe-worthy moment in the history of college football.

Take last week for example:

Immediately prior to the Mississippi State game, which A M lost, this man in overalls delivered an odd narrative that didn’t really go anywhere and ended with a very strange rhythm of shoutouts that was a little hard to follow at times. Your bones may begin to throb as a result of the discomfort, and your muscles will begin to tense up as a result. You may also have a lump in your throat. At another point throughout the evening, another member of the Yell Leaders took the microphone. Further, this individual describes Mike Leach as “the oddest, most sneered at, joke of a coach in college football,” adding that he is only discussed because “we laugh at him.” All of this is spoken with a straight face, and he appears to be gazing like this: This is a humorous way of describing a coach who is 9-4 versus ATM players.

  2. Even though I am not a supporter of Mississippi State, perhaps Memo Salinas might consider taking a long, hard look in the mirror?
  3. Do you want to see dances or choreography?
  4. I’m not sure what to name that, but it’s extremely funny to watch the entire thing.
  5. Despite being an all-male school, Texas A M’s football squad was getting blasted out early and often.
  6. In order to maintain some semblance of a gender balance and to ensure that they did not miss out on the opportunity to socialize with a member of the other sexe, the upperclassmen forced the freshmen to amuse the ladies.
  7. To put it another way, the all-white coveralls that have become a renowned A M “custom” are essentially nothing more than the garments worn by a janitor.

Here is some more background:

Yell Practice became a regular after-dinner habit in 1913, but it wasn’t until 1931 that the first Midnight Yell ceremony was staged. During a gathering of cadets in Peanut Owens’ dorm room in Puryear Hall, someone proposed that all of the freshmen should convene on the steps of the YMCA Building at midnight to practice screams. This was the beginning of the practice session. The freshman invited the two senior shout leaders who were in attendance at the moment. The two stated that they were unable to sanction the event, but it is possible that they will turn up.

The habit of walking back and forth began when Owens was elevated to the position of shout leader.

So, to summarize, the underclassman dressed in janitor garb had enormous feet and struggled to maintain his balance on the stairwell.

Suddenly, the awkward, big-footed freshman is what “distinguishes Texas A&M from other schools.” And if that isn’t enough to make you shudder, take a peek at this masterpiece:

Couldn’t be me.

Individuals on social media began to re-discover the Yell Leaders earlier this week, while others were introduced to them for the first time. Many people responded, and they are all as amusing as you’d anticipate from such a situation. We should identify shout leaders based on their ability to freestyle in a competitive environment. No one would make fun of that person if he had, say, tremendous flow, like he does. — Oscar Wildecat (@oscarwildecat1) on Twitter The date is October 7, 2021.
