We Have Got to Get Louder

Our stadium holds 100,000 people, almost all of whom come to the game wearing burnt orange. So why isn't our stadium that loud? You can't tell me that was a hard atmosphere for the UCLA players to handle, and it directly impacted the game. If we want to help the team, we have got to yell. I understand that almost everybody that visits BON, Shaggy Bevo, or Barking Carnival is loud at any and all games that he or she attends, but we have got to get those fans who don't yell loud enough to scream a little.

I understand that even if we had some sort of Death Valley like atmosphere, we still would have lost that game, but that doesn't mean our crowd won't impact a game in the future. LSU puts us to shame. Oregon puts us to shame. Oklahoma puts us to shame. TEXAS TECH puts us to shame. I get the whole "be classy" thing, but "be classy" doesn't mean "be quiet". We have 100,000 people. We have got to have every single one of them screaming at the top of their lungs from the opening kickoff to the final knee. I understand that we have a great record at home, but Oklahoma hasn't lost at home in years. You can't tell me the crowd doesn't impact that. 

I know its easier said than done, but we seriously have got to start some sort of movement to get our fans to be louder. We're Texas. Here are a few ideas:

1. During the Texas Fight chants, if there are guys around you not yelling, call them out. Ask why they aren't supporting the team to their fullest. We have got to have 50,000 yelling Texas and 50,000 yelling Fight as loud as they possibly can. Then maybe it would be a little intimidating.

2. Sings around the stadium. Get the DKR guys to post signs everywhere that say the whole Come Early, Stay Late, Be Loud, Wear Orange, with the BE LOUD thing like super bolded to remind everybody that this is a football game, not a symphony

3. Vuvuzelas. Get a few thousand of those and opponents are gonna have a hard time calling audibles. I don't care if they annoy you. Although I'm sure they would annoy the hell out of half the fans at our games.

That's all I got. But seriously, we have got to start a movement to get everybody to be a little more passionate.
