In another thread CMCoog 17 commented on our alma mater and asked a question:
"Our alma mater is better than most other “big schools” melodically and lyrically. This coming from a young alumni. Name one that you might think is better."
CoogsofCV3 replied, "The service academies have great ones."
I always liked Navy Blue and Gold of the U. S. Naval Academy and here it is:
Maybe my affection for Navy Blue and Gold is influenced by my years in the navy and watching “Victory at Sea” when I was a child. Anyway, the words have great meaning to all who have gone in harms way on the seas.
I don’t know any other alma mater besides ours, Navy’s, and LSU’s. LSU’s is also pretty, but the sentiment is the pretty much the same as UH’s. (I’ve heard that railroad song they sing at UT and it doesn’t cut it.)
BTW, I always wondered why our alma mater refers to “our Houston University” when we are the University of Houston. Poetic license I guess.
So, do any of you have any others you think may merit consideratrion?
