Traditions, Chants & Cheers

      

Tradition Lives at Farout Field.

  • The Front 60
    • The front row, consisting of the first 60 students in line, incorporate the true Mizzou Spirit. Each Game Day, these students wait hours upon hours to get ‘painted up’ with each weeks saying on their chest. Each student gets either one number, letter, or a paw-print. The Front 60 is one of Mizzou’s most covenant traditions.
  • Stay and Sing
    • Tiger’s Lair members show their Mizzou Pride each and every weekend with the singing of our Universities Alma Mater before and after every game.
  • The Big ‘M’
    • Before each game, our members uphold one of Mizzou’s largest flags, the Big ‘M’ as the team runs out from under Faurot Field.
  • MIZ! ZOU!
    • After each touchdown, Tiger’s lair chants, “MIZ!” followed by the alumni on the West side chanting, “ZOU!”
  • Fan of the Game
    • Without a doubt, this is one of the most prestigious recognitions a member of Tiger’s Lair can receive. The most energetic fan wins the “Fan of the Game” trophy, a gift certificate to The Mizzou Store, and a football autographed by the team captains.

 

Be Loud. Be Proud.

EVERY TRUE SON/DAUGHTER
Every true son, so happy hearted,
Skies above us are blue,
There’s a spirit so deep within us,
Old Missouri here’s to you (RAH! RAH!).
When the band plays the Tiger war song,
And when the fray is through,
We will tramp, tramp, tramp around the Columns,
With a cheer for Old Mizzou!

HIT IT!
HOORAY, HURRAH, MIZZOU, MIZZOU!
HOORAY, HURRAH, MIZZOU, MIZZOU!
HOORAY, HURRAH, AND A BULLY FOR OLD MIZZOU,
RAH! RAH! RAH! RAH!
MIZZOU-RAH! MIZZOU-RAH! MIZZOU-RAH, TIGERS!

FIGHT TIGER
Fight, Tiger, fight for old Mizzou,
Right behind you, everyone is with you.
Break the line and follow down the field,
And, you’ll be, on the top, upon the top.
Fight, Tiger, you will always win,
Proudly keep the colors flying skyward.
In the end, we’ll win the victory,
So Tiger, fight for Old Mizzou!
ALMA MATER – OLD MISSOURI
Old Missouri, fair Missouri,
Dear old varsity,
Our are hearts that fondly love thee,
Here’s a health to thee.

chorus:
Proud art thou in classic beauty,
Of thy noble past;
With thy watchwords, Honor, Duty,
Thy high fame shall last.
