    Thankfully, few people actually know those lyrics. I was embarrassed just reading them

    Very interesting. I see that some of the songs have lyrics that are very specific to football. What do they use for fight songs at basketball games?

    I think no one notices...since its just a band and no lyrics..they play the Oregon one at Knight Arena for the basketball games....I don't think I ever heard it at Hayward Field....even for the dual meets years ago....though it's possible since they were usually well attended...

    The next time a Florida State apologist falls back on Seminoles as a mascot honoring a brave Indian tribe, you can bring up this line

    <<You got to scalp 'em Seminoles!>>

    Well, at Duke we use the same fight song for football (no one cares) and basketball. But for basketball the unofficial fight song is "Devil With the Blue Dress"
