The Chop and chant


We all are familiar with it. The thousands of hands moving in an almost unison motion (depending how far away from the band you are), the bass pumping out from the bleachers, and the distinctive vocals provided by the entire Seminole nation. I love it, honestly it was the first thing that caught my attention about FSU and one of the reasons I went to the school. I'm all about do or die stands, me against the world type stuff, and I feel that the chop and the music (especially the music) really epitomizes that. However I feel that somewhere along the way the band has become too lax with its usage. Opening kickoff? great. Defensive INT or sack? all for it. When EJ completes a 12 yd pass or it's time for the bobble head race? not so much. The warchant is symbolic (symbology if you will). Braveheart's first speech, time for chop. Independence day the final aerial battle, good chop time. It's supposed to speak of impending doom for the opponent, to raise our hands one final time before the final bell. IMO the chant is goal line stands, 4th quarter type stuff. When you play something every second it gets played out and loses its significance. What do you think?
