Alma mater song before games?
« on: February 19, 2020, 08:42:37 AM »
Have they officially stopped playing the Alma mater pre-game? I usually get there an hour before tip off and can't remember the last time I heard it. If so it's a shame, I thought it was a nice moment.

Replace alma mater with the theme from Laverne and Shirley

Guess I'm the only one who actually likes the song then and is disappointed it's gone?

As a long time lurker, would anyone care to explain why 4everwarriors is the way he/she is? What's with the style of the replies? It's bizarre.

I think the alma mater is great and should be played more.

I like it. I always thought it was a good way to lead in to the rest of the pre game videos, anthem, and intros.

As a student, it was cool to feel a connection to alumni as they stood up and swayed with the song.

I have seen it played numerous times this season in games I was early into my seats (not always in early). Maybe it was cut due to the Joseph Daniels memorials?

When you've lived in the 'quon long enough, it's difficult not to type in the local dialect.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

MU needs a new, jazzier alma mater song.  Up tempo, with a nice beat.

They still play it, but not every game. I've definitely heard it at recent games. It was played on NMD.

Brewcity are you sure? I agree with Mr. Nielsen about not remembering it playing on NMD. 

Is there no rhyme or reason? Without fail it was played every game previous seasons. It has to be intentional right? They can't just run out of time and skip it...

Alma mater was in year's past played the 10 minute mark of the warm up clock. I'm usually in my seat at that point. I don't remember it being played. It would be hard to forget since everyone stand for it and yells MARQUETTE at the end of the song.

They may have stopped playing it out of embarrassment since the students don’t show up anymore so there’s no one to yell “marquette!”

I love Ring Out Ahoya, but Hail Alma Mater is the most generic song ever. It has no history or connection

I was at MU in the '70's. I think it was sung (probably by Charlene Piasecki) but no one cared and simply ignored it. It was stupid then. No one swayed like they do now. In the McGuire era, we prided ourselves on NOT being like the state schools who sang those dittys. We were far too cool to be that conformist.

Yes, it’s played like 10 or 12 minutes prior to national anthem lineup.

PS, though I honestly don’t remember it last night.
