20 Reasons to be Excited for Syracuse Football - #4

As we move closer to the 2011 Syracuse football season, Lots of Pulp will be counting down the top 20 reasons to be excited for the new year.

The 12th man is a phrase we see tossed around a lot these days. Pretty much every team has some sort of slogan decreeing its fans as the extra advantage at their home stadium.

The 12th man, not 12th sorority sister stumbling up from Lucy's trying to sift through her keys to get in her house and looking only mildly interested.

Yes that's right, we're talking about a pet peeve: the key jingling of the student section.

#4 - Annoying SU traditions that will never die.
This one's pretty simple. For some reason, students take out their freshman lanyards, with perhaps one dorm key on it, and jingle it on 3rd down.

Multiple keys??? Must be deafening!

Sure, it's a "key down."
No, it does not have any effect.

At Virginia Tech, they take out the keys and jingle while yelling "Hoooo." Get it? Ho-kies?

Big difference. They are actually yelling.

Hit some freaking metal, the Dome is full of it. Yell at the top of your lungs. You want an idea? Jiggle a damn cowbell.

Or at least take both hands and move them together at a steady pace. It's not that difficult.

So here's a reference guide. But we're sure you won't follow it, because, well, this is a tradition that will never die.
