I have heard the origination of using Sandstorm was in question. No more! Proof that The University of South Carolina was the first school to try Sandstorm. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Scroll down to in sports and read.
In the link, click on did you mean Sandstorm (song)
As much as we own that song for college football, Wanderlei Silva owns it for all sports
He was out waaaaaaay in front on that one as his entrance music
Good stuff, but the genesis of spirit rags goes back another 20 years. They handed them out for the 87 clemson game and several other games through the years.
1) you'll be laughed at an rightfully so for pointing to wikipedia as your source of fact
2) the part about the rags is total horseshit.
2013 SEC Championship Game: USC v LSU
All the teachers on this board are about to blast the living $hit out of you for using wiki as a source FYI.
"When somebody sticks you in the ear hole, you stick them in the ear hole right back." - SOS
The funny part is that wikipedia is almost as accurate as other researching tools. (Its true, I looked it up on wikipedia!)
Im not laughing? Speak for yourself....why dont you just say thanks for posting or just dont post at all. Point number two is relavent i guess.
We're certainly the first sports team to adopt it as "our song" and not just "a song" but to say we were the first to play it is benign. Regardless, it's ours now.
So it's not good that I regularly use wikipedia in my medical practice?? Seriously, the day wikipedia was blacked out, almost killed somebody

Neither the football team nor the Baseball team was the first to use that sig at USC.
USC had someone use it before the MMA guys as well.
Blake Taylor used that song his first heat (JR year) with USC. I remember him using it when he came out to pitch. That was in 2002, I believe.
I asked him about it after a game one time. He said he used it to get the crowd jacked up. I remember thinking that the country music crowd that usually attended baseball games wouldn't respond. Then, I heard it at a basketball game years later and remembered thinking how well it worked.

Some how I doubt the references were legit if there even were any.
I was dancing to sandstorm on roof tops in Frisco long before it was ever played in the Brice
Why worry about who uses a phrase or song first? Imitation by others is a compliment to our practice.
What is funny is the tiger net arguement about the phrase "all in" and being upset with Maryland for going "all in " this season. Seems they were the original copiers and are upset if anyone else copies yet again...
lolz @ this thread
I once farted on the set of Blue Lagoon.
did Brooke smell it?
