I was absolutely inspired by the Brazilians' energy against Lamar today. If you didn't catch the game, their International flavor was more than welcomed by the Ozone. 

I can envision soccer chants fully incorporated into the Ozone. If the lyrics were printed onto flyers, and the Ozone regulars were familiar with the tunes, it would take the student section to the next level.

Here are some potential chants that would fit and make sense:

We Love You:

We Love You ¦ We Love You ¦ We Love You
Ohios Who We Follow ¦ We Follow ¦ We Follow ¦
Cause We Support the Bobcats ¦ the Bobcats ¦ the Bobcats
And That's the Way we Like it ¦ We Like It ¦ We Like It
Wooo oh ooh ohh ohh oohhhhhhhh ¦ ¦
Wooo oh ooh ohh ohh oohhhhhhhh ¦ ¦
Wooo oh ooh ohh ohh oohhhhhhhh ¦ ¦
Wooo oh ooh ohh ohh oohhhhhhhh ¦ ¦

Oh Ohio:

Ohhh Ohhh Hi Ooooo
O-HI-O
O-HI-O
O-HI-O

Player Name Chant:

Da Da Da dadada
Da Da Da dadada
Da Da Da dadada
DJ Cooper

(insert any 4 syllable player name like Reggie Keely, Ivo Baltic, Walter Offout, Stevie Taylor, etc whenever they're playing really well)

Green and White We Bleed:

We all follow the Bobcats
Green and White we bleed
We all follow the Bobcats
On to Victory 

(all together now)

We all follow the Bobcats
Green and White we bleed
We all follow the Bobcats
On to victory

I wouldn't try this before the first conference game; but these chants really could work. I think the best way to get the ball rolling is start with Oh Ohio chant sometime around 4 regulation minutes into the game (while the energy is still fresh). It's a one word chant, you can clap if you don't know the words, and I think it'll get people into the chanting mood if they never have before.

Suggestion: With the integration of social media today the leaders of the ozone should use it to your advantage. What if the leaders put together a youtube video of all the songs you want to use and how the chants go and start spreading it throughout facebook and twitter. It something that can be spread quickly and by conference play every OU student would know the chants

That's a good idea.  We were already planning on including them in the bulletin somehow..


I've seen crazier things happen.

I am always partial to this chant. Just subbing the Oh La to O-U.

Thanks for the suggestions. As one of the leaders for this year's O-Zone, I've been coming up with several chants of my own that I would hope to implement, but I will definitely try to use your ideas and hope that they catch on. I agree with your opinion of waiting until the first conference game of the season to officially try them out (Jan. 11 vs. Buffalo), but if you all come to the Jan. 2nd against Robert Morris, you might get a little sample of what to expect from us this season. All the best...

If I may make a suggestion: Don't give up a cheer. If people don't immediately pick it up, keep it going. Do it louder. It might take a few tries, but people will eventually catch on.

My all-time favorite chant was the "OOO'shea O'shea O'shea O'shea O'shea, OOO'shea, OOO'shea"  chants that sprung up during the MAC tourney in 05.
