Intimidating team chants
In 1969, during his first season at Michigan, head coach Bo Schembechler had a sign placed in the locker room that said, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions."This phrase has continued to ring true at Michigan and is not only motivational, but is something that the players and the fans of the university live by.
While it does not say much, it is really all that needs to be said by these fans and the program.The saying has taken over Stillwater, and with the recent success of the Cowboys, it is going to be heard a lot for years to come.Instead of "Party On," like the saying goes, at Michigan State they have "Sparty On." This cheer, similar to Orange Power at Oklahoma State, has T-shirts that were made for it.This saying is part of the entrance video at Bryant-Denny Stadium and sends chills down the spines, not only of the Alabama fans, but also everyone else in attendance.It is hard to ignore the success this program has had over their storied history, and they are not afraid to shout it out before the games.
