MSU Football Tickets

The student section might sound a little different at Spartan Stadium on Saturday.

A grassroots campaign spearheaded by political theory sophomore Jason Leva and other members of the Spartan Tailgate Red Cedar Message Board are trying to start a new cheer based on the team’s mantra: “Pound Green, Pound.”

The cheer — which goes “Line ‘em up/ Knock ‘em down/ We are one/ Pound Green, Pound” — will occur during the first defensive MSU play after a kickoff or punt and after failed third down conversions by the opposing team. The cheer mirrors the 1960s cheer “Kill Bubba Kill,” when defensive lineman Bubba Smith played for the Spartans.

Current players have differing stories of how the phrase was introduced to this year’s team - but all I say is .. if it can get us win's than Go For It.

Um .. I mean Go Green ... Go White
