The great goEMAW history of the _|mm|_
« on: September 06, 2021, 09:52:26 PM »
Hey guys, I feel like this thread would be a great thread to really nail down the origin of the LynchMob known as K-State’s dominant defense through Snyder 1.0. So i have a few questions to start the thread off.

 Does the name LynchMob derive from Ice Cube’s infamous tune “Steady Mobbin’”?

What player or fan or maybe even journalist coined the term LynchMob for the defense?

Again i am curious as this was before my time, not goEMAWing here. I want to get the story straight so I can tell my peers the truth. What better site to write this book than goEMAW.com …

Great questions and thread, Greg.

I can’t speak to who was the founder of the mob (no one embodied it more than Josh Buhl), but I do believe Ice Cube’s music was the inspiration.

rough ridin' lynch mob man. One of the coolest things ever
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

We need some stories in here before the people that were actually there have a broken hip infection death.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

Hip replaced in Jan 2020.  No infection here.

Unfortunately memory is fading so origins of mob are fuzzy.  Let me do some research.

It's problematic in 2021. I figure me and the EPAW woman are the only people that care, though.

Like, the overlap of people with a deep knowledge of KSU defense nickname history that also worry about offending people with something like this (or would be offended) is really small. EPAW honestly probably doesn't have the knowledge I possess.

I was watching the game with my townie brother and commented on the lynch mob sign and he said it is now "mob mentality" which I guess is supposed to be less offensive but I don't know, man.

I wrote a letter to the editor as a 7th grader defending the lynch mob.  I will see if I can dig that up.

Lynch Mob needs to go away for obvious racism reasons and we should replace it with Flash Mob.  the celebration we and the players do is much more impromptu (exactly like a flash mob) and fun! (unlike a lynch mob which would not be fun :(  ). 

for 2021’s ballot, I vote Lynch Mob out and Flash Mob in.  we can use the same hand symbol until the kids learn how to do an F with their fingers

Mob, just mob. In fact internally it was called the mob more often than not back to the late 90s. I don't know when :lynchmob: started but it proceeds the 1996 season.

Lunch Mob is hilarious. Lynch Mob is obviously an insane thing to say outloud in 2021. Or even like 2001. I remember even in the ‘90s, a few years after the name was coined, reading letters to the editor talking about how the name Lynch Mob was problematic, offensive, portrayed us in a racist light, etc. The counter was always “but this name was started by African-American players, so it’s okay!” Then I heard this in casual convo this summer…As if some dudes doing something in the 90’s automatically means every player who comes after them for decades and decades is required to co-sign on something that is so very Eeeee ferget it. Lunch Mob it is.
