"Now get on your feet, it's time to SHOUT."
Every home football game no matter the opponent or the score, you can count on those words between the third and fourth quarter in Ross-Ade Stadium. And with those simple words, students, fans, alumni, band members, even the players all go crazy.
For those two or three minutes, we all get to act as one. It may sound simple, stupid or corny but it's true. Fans are often divided on coaching decisions, players, or the outcomes of games but isn't it crazy how a silly song can rally everybody together.
Every weekend a different Purdue Legend is responsible for waving the flag outside of the pressbox and leading the stadium in shouting. It's a unique tradition but one that we love.
This week it was Adam Soldati the Purdue diving coach. You might be thinking, "Who?!" But his list of career accomplishments is crazy long and it's only getting longer. Most recently, he was responsible for coach David Boudia who finished his career with six national championships.
With that, I ask you to get on your feet, it's time to shout! (Okay, I'll settle for just sitting back and watching the video):
