Went to a game at New Mexico State earlier this week. Turns out they use a cheer "Guns Up", which relates to their double revolver shooting symbol.

Got to thinking about other "odd" cheers, and will admit that Rutger's "Upstream Red Team" qualifies. Others I have noted:

- Purdue's "Boiler Up"
- Arizona's "Beardown, Arizona" - which relates to a "win one for the Gipper" type of story
- Texas A&M's "Gig Em" - although it may be anything an A&M cheer person says is obscure.

Am I missing any?

They all seem odd to me, but Boiler Up, especially. I get the boilerpart, as in boilermakers, bu tit sounds like something out of moonshining.

I work for a group of community colleges in and around Phoenix, one of which, Scottsdale Community College, has as its mascot the Fighting Artichokes. I am told, but cannot prove on short notice, that there is a college cheer. If that turns out to be true, I am dead certain it will make your list. Cannot imagine how one cheers on artichokes.

Where x is your score

The Stanford Band likes to chant that one, when it applies.

And then there is the "cheer" dedicated to their arch rivals U[sic]GA:

What's the Good Word?
To HELL with georgia!

My cousin in GA went to Tech, his kids went to UGA. I asked him once who he roots for and he said "My hearts with Tech, but my money is at Georgia".
