OT: Texas College Hand Signs

So did I.

When did that fall out of favor?


I still say “Eat’em Up”


It’s most definitely “Eat 'Em Up”.


Eat ‘em up eat em up RAH-RAH-RAH!!!


It most definitely is “Eat 'em up!”

For some reason I the lates 90s or early aughts, the young uns start using “Go Coogs!” more than “Eat 'em up!”

Time to bring it back.

And while I doubt we’ll have have an enclosure for Shasta on campus, can we at least bring her to the games? And Shasta needs to be a she.

I think SFA wins this competition.

Lol is that really a Rice hand sign, the “Peck 'em Owls” ?

Rice students I knew didn’t care about the whole “XX 'em” and hand sign, but they told me that SWC alums they met would tell stories of the 70s and 80s that Rice would just give the finger as the hand sign, but it wasn’t like a finger with all others as a fist.

It looked like a “palm strike” with the middle finger up.
