I found this during spring cleaning. If I remember correctly ( a real test with my poor memory these days) These were made and handed out by a student named Roy Hill back in the day. I think the game they are referencing is a beat we put on Kentucky in Barnhill and vaguely remember Darryl Hawkins jumping around on the tables on the sidelines. A large group of the students memorized how to say “Sit Down Bus Driver” in Italian for Rick Pitino that day. It was so sweet.
Good times. That was when we still screamed, “we’re gonna beat the hell outta you.”
We carried that yell over to Bud Walton but the new band director didn’t like that chant and actively tried to stop us… He would vary the count on the song we would yell it just before in an effort to mess us up. He was successful for awhile then we enlisted an ex band member that helped us with the count.
That chant needs to come back. I used to yell it at the top of my lungs…felt good.
What I miss more than anything is - Lights go down, William Tell Overture starts and then GO HOGS!
I remember “Sit down bus driver”. Pitino cracked up when he heard it.
It may not have happened at every home game this season, but I vividly remember students shouting this for the Auburn and Kentucky games.
The used to yell “Who’s she?” when the other team was being introduced.
It was fun, but people get offended by such now days.
“Sit down bus driver” made Sports Illustrated. Or should I say “Si sièda conducente di autobus!”
There were six Intro signs.
WHATS THAT SMELL
I know this because I was one of the students that brought them over from Barnhill when we moved into Bud Walton and I always held up the 3rd sign WHATS THAT SMELL. In fact I still have the sign hanging up in my Razorback room in my house. After we won the title in 94, we retired the old signs, they were getting pretty worn down and had new ones made. The new signs ended up getting passed to a student we referred to a “freshman” (real name Bryan Fritchie) even when he was no longer one simply because he joined our crazy little group the 1st year of Bud Walton as a freshman. Where they went or what happened as the years passed and he moved on, I have no idea. I assume he passed them and the tradition on as well, but things fade and that’s been years ago.
Thanks Swine, I never knew they printed that. It was our little group or cabal of students that actually learned it and spread it to others for that game. I can still remember how to say it even to this day.
I recognize the fonts. That’s from the old Springdale News …
