EYE OF TIGER at beginning of games

Powers that be - please read this and let it soak in. If you know one of the Powers That Be, please pass it along. I have been saying for a while now that I think that at the beginning of the game, either as the players unload the buses and approach the hill, or after they run down it preparing for kickoff - Eye of the Tiger needs to be pumping throughout the stadium. Other schools have songs they use. We play Zombie Nation like almost every other school out there. Let’s be more unique and more memorable in all stages of the game. How much more fitting could a song be to a school/team? That is a song that both the older and younger crowd can appreciate and would be pretty intimidating for any team coming into the valley.

You are welcome.

I agree! Seem to recall Tiger Band played it for a few years back in the early 90’s during games. I think it was in a halftime show and then they kept it in use for awhile.

Yep, it used to be perforned a lot by the band. Not exactly a great band song... always seemed hard to hear and not enough drums/beat. It’s better just to play it over the PA system.

It is still pretty awesome when they decide to play We Will Rock You sometimes. As popular as the coots using Sandstorm has gotten, and of course VT using Enter Sandman, I believe this would blow the doors off of any other song used in college football. This song was made for us.

It used to be played during early warmups. My family always got in the stadium one hr before and it was in the song rotation. This is before the DJ came along and the pregame concert hype lol.

It needs to be part of the hill tradition, since we lost the ####### balloons.

Excellent idea....Maybe, play it over the loudspeakers

when the team first enters the top of the hill, followed by Tiger Band's "Tiger Rag."

So what you are saying is that instead of the band playing the march and Tiger Rag in as we come down the Hill, play Eye of the Tiger.

I'm all for Eye of the Tiger being played at times. But I don't think its our entrance song. Only second rate programs enter the stadium to 30 year old movie music.

I think the crowd noise is too loud when they get to the top of the hill, so you go with Tiger Rag...However, Eye of the Tiger would be a great song to play when the players are getting on the buses at the Westzone and the ride around. This would also clue the crowd to what is happening. Thoughts?

Re: EYE OF TIGER at beginning of games

I agree. I just think it needs to be sometime at the beginning. I think while they are on the buses and then emptying out and swarming the rock.
