Efforts to counter-act "Mother F'in Eagles"

I yelled it on the student side when I was in school and if you’re not listening for it you don’t know what they’re saying. I don’t use it on the home side precisely bc of kids but complaining about it every year is pointless. I’d rather the whole stadium including the kids yell mother F’in eagles than “really awesome” eagles. Go ahead and kick us back to the sun belt if we go that route. 

That's a whole lot of no xbox for a week and soap in the mouth.

Or have some class and understand there are also kids at the games.  So tired of this discussion every year and why people think this is acceptable.

This became so bad during the McCarney regime that he had to put in McNulty to keep the fight song from being played.           *I just noticed I received a down vote.I'm

Or we could just act like we have some class.

Yep, because what the crowd yells determines where they end up.  Mother F'ing gets leads you up the ladder while something that doesn't include derogatory terms leads you back down.  Got it.

Won't somebody think of the children?! 

 

I know this will fall on deaf ears, but why is it acceptable to yell mother fu$!# in public at a college football game but nowhere else?

We are old, Lifer...it’s what you know are when cussing out loud bothers you. Trust me, I agree with you so much that it MF’n hurts.

Not sure why anyone would chant this.   This is now commonplace language and has no shock value.  It just demonstrates a lack of imagination. 

Anyone that thinks this is an appropriate yell at a football or for that matter anywhere else, is just too immature to be worried about anyone's else's opinions.

Idk man, I've been in Death Valley hearing some 15k students yell about fellating a Tiger so who knows?

Something about it being a bloodsport for our entertainment or something, I'm not sure. I don't disagree with the time and place argument, but it's sorta silly if we zoom out and remember the whole culture surrounding football (or brutal contact sports in general). I played ice hockey all my life and I can tell you that I never had a coach that wasn't cursing like a sailor, and that's a sport known for its class and respect despite that fact.

Approaching my mid 50's, but I was taught by my parents how to act in public.  As my 91 year old mother still says, "You aren't too old or too big to be pulled across my lap!" 🤣

I have yet to see one good reason as to why this should be acceptable.

A coach cussing you is one thing.  Lord knows I've had my share of butt chewings by many a coach.  My problems with this stupid chant are the following:

1.  It is disrespectful towards our university.

2.  It is yelling MF'er at the top of their lungs during our fight song.  It is easy to tell what is being said from across Apogee.

3.  My youngest looking up and clarifying what he heard and then asking why they would say that about their school.

4.  It is classless.  Don't compare us to LSU.  Their fans are the worst in college football and nothing to aspire to be.

5.  We are North Texas and we are better than that.

I completely agree with all of the above. My dad and I (both Alumni) cannot figure out for the life of us why this continues to be acceptable. Sure, some said it back in my day as a student, but it was nowhere near as loud as it is now. And yes, you can definitely hear it from across Apogee. It just doesn't sound good. It might be funny to the students chanting it, but it sounds terrible hearing it - Maybe I take more pride in my Alma Mater nowadays and probably took it for granted as a student ... Cuss all you want, just not during our Fight Song. 🤷‍♀️ 

Just my opinion.

Agreed except for the “cuss all you want” comment. As has already been mentioned, yelling out curse words in public is not the time nor the place.  It’s just common courtesy.

My solution would just be to pick up the cadence during that part. If we did the U N T Eagles at a fast pace instead of the super-slow pace they do now (I don't remember the N T S U version being so slow) then there wouldn't be time to add any "extras" into it.

Thank you.  You and a few others have restored my faith in our fans.
