You Know It! You Tell the Story! You Tell the Whole Damn World This is BEAR TERRITORY!!!

Hey all you students! And I include fellow 30,40, 50, 60 and 70-something eternal sophomores like me! UC Rally Committee is starting a new tradition Thursday night that we really all should embrace. We are going to have an honest to goodness kick off rally IN MEMORIAL STADIUM!!! This will be your chance to get fired-up (can you tell I am!!!), learn the yells from the Mic Men - like ROLL ON YOU BEARS!!!

The fight songs from our GREAT CAL BAND (btw, did you know Cal has more fight songs than any other school in the country!),

see the Cheer and Dance Teams… Oski will be there doing that Oski thing he does so well…

Of course no football rally would be complete without Coach Sonny Dykes and members of the team. Cal Sports materfamilias, Athletic Director Sandy Barbour, will be there. New Chancellor Dirks will be on hand and I hear he gets crazy – CRAZY – at these things.

Beginning at 6PMish, there will be a performance by Mic Men Spencer and Matt, the band and cheer squads, then the march-up through campus a la gameday will start about 6:20 on Sproul Plaza and will include the Marching Band, Cheer and Dance Teams, Oski, the Rally Committee, and hundreds of students. Following the path of the game day pre-rally, the parade will end at the North Tunnel of Memorial Stadium, with general audience seating up the east exterior stairwell and down the student section, and ADA seating through the North Tunnel field entrance. All in attendance will be seated in the student section!


The rally itself will begin around 7:00 pm in the stadium (so you don’t have to do the march), with a kickoff by Coach Dykes and the football team. The rally will close out with attendees singing All Hail as a student body.

A lot of you have said you wanted Cal to do something like this. Now they are. So get out there and support it because not only is it good for the team, it is great fun. No hyperbole here, but YOU ARE THE BEST DAMN STUDENT SECTION IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!

And to get you ready, we provide a link Get Your PhD in Cal! that serves as sort of a Cal fan primer. ALL FRESHMAN (matter-of-fact everyone) should read this!!!
