Yet Another Total Drek Contest!
In honor of tomorrow night's Orange Bowl, college football's "national" "championship," Drek and I (mostly I) are offering a college football-themed contest. (Drek: This is why I love having a co-blogger. I would never do anything like that in a million years.)
Here's the contest: match the following silly college fight song lyrics (numbered 1-20) with the college they represent (lettered A-T). These are carefully selected as some of the silliest fight song lyrics in all of college football. Have a read:
1. "Beavers, beavers, fighters through and through!"
2. "Boomer sooner, O. K. U.!"
3. "Bruins roam the hills of Westwood."
4. "Bulldog, bulldog, bow wow wow!"
5. "Each loyal son knows that Colgate will lose."
6. "Fight on and win for old S. C.!"
7. "For dear old State, we'll yell like hell!"
8. "Hail to the victors valiant, hail to the conquering heroes!"
9. "He always sings raggy music to his cattle as he swings."
10. "Hullaballoo, caneck, caneck!"
11. "I'm Carolina born and Carolina bred, and when I die, I'll be Carolina dead."
12. "It's harder to push them over the line than pass the Dardanelles."
13. "Love of family, love of friends, love of country too..."
14. "Oskie wow-wow!"
15. "Our coeds are the fairest, and each one's a shining star."
16. "Rah-rah-rah for Ski-U-Mah!"
17. "Teach the Bulldogs to behave, send the Yellow Jackets to a watery grave."
18. "That's why all the folks on Rocky Top get their corn from a jar."
19. "The stadium rings as everyone signs."
20. "We'll all have drinks at Theodore Zincks..."

Well, then, here's what you win: a small measure of control over the future of Total Drek. Drek and I will give you a one-time pass to suggest a blogging topic for Total Drek. Want to hear what Slag thinks about social network analysis? Want to hear what Drek did with that piranha and his sister's birthday cake when he was 11? Dream up anything you want, and we'll post about it!
Fight on, Total Drek!
