Declaration of Independence

This Declaration was taken from a post by “Spud” on The Tigernet.

Collectively, we feel that the sissy-sounding squall that has recently come to be called the “woo hoo” should be banned from all Clemson University athletic, social, organizational, academic, and all other gatherings as deemed necessary by the undersigned. We must think of the students and now even alumni that were not fortunate enough to be privy to a life prior to the abhorrent “woo-hoo” imposed on each member of the Clemson Family. We must stand up for a life before “woo-hooing” pervaded the air and out-sung the melodic sounds of our own Tiger Rag. We must stand up for honesty and integrity by taking a firm stance against the thievery that is the “woo hoo”. We must stand against the stereotyping of our dear University by not allowing the integration of a sound most likely to be heard on a farm. We must stand for the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that cannot continue unless this loathsome sound is removed from our present “tradition” and is replaced as a shameful part of our otherwise rich rich history.

As a group of some of the most prominent individuals from Clemson University, we strongly support the statement that “Real Tigers Don’t Woo Hoo”.  We hereby place our signatures on this piece of parchment in protest against such an outrage to the University and the honor of our names in the highest hope that Clemson University will correct this nonsense and return to its prior state of general superiority, pre-eminence, aggression, fierceness, and dominance.
