The last name of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump apparently has been turned into a racial insult for some people. The chanters were from Dallas Center-Grimes High, which has a largely white population.High school students in Des Moines, Iowa, this week chanted "Trump! Their school's team had just lost to Perry High School, which has a more diverse student population."Perry has been a racial target for many towns for a long time now, and now I am tackling this problem.These student sections are known for their creativity in chants, intimidation tactics to distract the opposing team, and their creativity in raiding away games.Sixth man squads assemble themselves together across the United States.If you see a missed dunk or lay-up by the opponent, point and laugh... This is true for both pre-game and half-time warm-ups. It is tradition for the student sections to turn their backs to the court during player intros. New in 2011, we began using our War Chant for pre-tip off We're always doing something on defense. We get completely silent with our arms raised up like a touchdown signal. Watch: Yes, that's "I believe that we will win," the Utah State student section's pregame chant. I could watch it 10 more.)Tipster Mids was curious: Is this chant spreading, "Zombie Nation"-like, across the country? The majority of the videos on You Tube are of Utah State's student section; some are higher quality than others, but all of them are impressive.
(Don't forget to turn back around when they're over! We generally do this by yelling "OOOOHHHHHHHH" or "DEEEEEEEFFFEEEEENNNSSSEEE" (DEFENSE) and jumping around, some even wave shirts/towels. The east and west go back and forth and the effect is a fun GO!
Many create identical shirts to appear unified and even more numerous.
Sixth man clubs name themselves based on their school mascot or color.
#Lets Go VCU #Rowdy Rams #Make It Real Every time the opponent enters/exits the arena, we boo loudly in their general direction. We try to dig up info on the opponents and heckle them, get in their heads, and throw them off their game. (disclaimer: sometimes emotions get the best of everyone, just remember that you are representing your university, and the things you say reflect on everyone at VCU.)Questions, Comments or Chant Ideas may be sent to [email protected] GO RAMS!!!!
As the opponent warms up, we heckle them, especially when they miss lay-ups or dunks.
