We like to bitch about college football traditions falling by the wayside these days. The Redcoat Band is calling our bluff on that. As explained to me by one of the assistant directors,
In this year’s tweak of Pregame, we decided to try to get the fans to sing “Hail to Georgia” once again. The middle of this year’s Pregame show will feature the “Hail” we all know and love with a traditional twist. The original ending has been put back into the tune, and it is now repeated with only the melody and a modest accompaniment so fans can sing along. The end of the tune brings back the ending of the last 20 years or so, which includes the “Go” cheer on the end.
If you need a visual aid, here’s YouTube to the rescue.
See if you can make the effort and pitch in… after all, it’s a tradition. (By the way, speaking of traditions, any way we can get “Dooley’s Junkyard Dawgs” back in the game day mix, Redcoats?)
