I think the whole stealing the "Wrecking Crew" hand sign from cult aggie reference went way over your head.

We briefly talked about it during the season, but it's summer time and we have time to care about trivial (?) matters like this.  Play it whenever.  Could be a third down thing, could be after the third quarter.  Whenever really, but it's a great song for K-State, especially the chorus, and especially the "LADADADADA!"

Imagine the students screaming

"Start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!
All your sanity, and wits - they will all vanish.  I promise.
It's just a matter of time."

So cool.

It's this kind of foreign, scary, upbeat gypsy song.  Seems perfect. I think I'm going to go try to set up a meeting with somebody in the athletic department next week and pitch the idea. 

LET'S GET BEHIND THIS, WILDCAT FANS!  START WEARING PURPLE!

Here is best video on that subject

Several years ago I emailed the AD suggesting the band play it. I also suggested they play "Wildcat" by Ratatat as our entrance music for basketball games. Never heard back.

Snyder’s tyranny continues to oppress us, and likely will for decades to come.

Billdo Snydoing’s reign of terror is officially over. Is it time to fire up this thread again? I’m reading the tea leaves and they say AFFIRMATIVE. I think it’s time. Also how about that one time in this thread where I believe the poster @EmoEmaw asked if SWP was a waltz lololololol






ateast I think that’s what happened lollerz

It is time.

here's the deal: i don't think there's a lot we can be doing right now (other than continue to be excited about this).  either they'll play it over the PA system (like they really should), or the band is going to play it (and hopefully not play it to death a la "shout it out loud") or we're on our own.

if we're on our own, we're going to need a few heroes to start it in the student section and really do this thing organically.  which is possible.  that's how the first down cheer got started. that's how the OOD got started.  that's how we resurrected EMAW.  soccer hooligans do much more elaborate chants than what we'll be doing.

if it has to start in the student section, it should be just the chorus over and over and over again:

"Start wearing purple wearing purple,
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish, I promise
It's just a matter of time

SO YEAH HA

Start wearing purple wearing purple..."

worst case scenario, just do the chorus three times or so.

but it's going to take heroes.  some EMAW elite is going to have to get bombed on alcohol, get on his buddies' shoulders near the front of the student section, turn around so you're facing the crowd, and just belt it out.  it'll be awkward at first, but it should pick up relatively quickly.  and you'll look very, very cool and be starting something very special.  it will be iconic.  a student should jump at this opportunity.

that's the worst case scenario, and it's really not so bad.
Remember when we dared to dream?

But i think a more realistic option (my dream scenario) would be to play the song during pregame the first few weeks.  Get some chatter going among the students ("this song is so weird...what is he saying?  'Start wearing purple?'  Oh.  Man still though - so weird.") until they become familiar with it and take a shining to it.  But ONLY during pregame.

Then, when it's after a Baylor incomplete pass on 2nd and 7 from their own 18 on the first drive of the game, a "so. yeah. ha." belts throughout the stadium and the crowd goes nuts.

After a few more weeks of SWP during games, the band can pick it up.  The fans need to be trained first though before the band starts playing it.
it's so easy.  That would work perfectly.  WAKE UP.

I too once had hope. Unfortunately, SWP is not on Jock Jams so it’s never going to pass muster. Agree that our athletic department dropping the ball on this obvious slam dunk is one of the most K-State0 things they could possibly do.

They've moved beyond the jock jams. The only people who complained about the music this past season are olds and hicks. Give it a go dq.

I shot off an email to someone who I think is the right guy to send it to. I'll follow up if I don't hear anything.

I even gave instructions on how it should (must) be implemented.

Thank you for the suggestion,[DQ]. I appreciate the detail you provided in your message. Your passion for K-State comes through clearly – thank you for that! I am not familiar with the song, but will review it with our fan experience team as we prepare for hopefully a great football season ahead.

 

GO CATS!
