    Speaking of traditions, I don't see that 4th quarter chant taking off. I personally think its horrible.

    They also don't have to play the video on the scoreboard (audio is a must obviously), but I want to get this started...

    Don't like it. It's too close to an lsu tradition.

    Great idea...something both adults and kids can enjoy, as well as leave our guests saying: "Wow, I've never been to a football game where people just started dancing!" Alternate suggestion: maybe play just before half-time ends (after the band's half-time show)as an intro into the second half. Perhaps we can talk to Terrance Semien to contribute a Zydeco tune as well; although I think this song really sums up the nature and spirit of all of Acadiana! Great suggestion!

    I disagree, it is a different song and the fiddle player in the video is Michael Doucet, founder of the Grammy winning Cajun band, Beauseauliel. Michael is a native of Lafayette and a U.L. alumni....I have passed this idea on to the right people in the athletic dept...

    Nice, maybe a little to long for a pre-game warmup.

    Our scoreboard video and audio is awful so that's a deal breaker for me. I personally don't really care for the idea but at least people are coming up with things that may get people into the game.

    The 4th quarter chant is awful as well and hasn't worked one bit yet. It's hard to force things on people, most things that stick on as a tradition just naturally come about.

    I like it. Not many football teams do it. I like traditions that we can start doing and do EVERY WEEK, EVERY HOME GAME! It ain't a tradition if you only do it sometimes. Yes, I just used ain't, deal with it.

    The song is fine but announcing "the sun has set and its offically Saturday night ing Cajun Field" is what is really close to what lsu does

    This is true, but the song fits the "Cajun Way" REALLY REALLY well.

    I think this would be our own little cool tradition that only we have....
