    Indiana has "Embarked on a Comprehensive Effort to Further Enhance the Football Gameday Experience" and will now be doing the chomp when the opposing team is on 3rd down, among other things.

    4. In-Game
    a) New cheers/traditions--especially for students
    i. Yell "Hoosiers" when ball is kicked on kickoffs
    ii. Yell First Down Hoosiers and point direction
    iii. Touchdown March
    iv. Jaws theme and Chomp-Clap on Defensive 3rd Downs
    v. "Tap-Out" on defensive stops and turnovers, cross arms, put Tap-Out X in the air, and add "X" to Tap-out Wall Count
    vi. Be loud when opponent is on offense in either red zone, especially near student section.
    b) Offensive and Defensive Performance awards for fans
    i. Score 50+: Discounts at Kilroys and Papa Johns
    ii. 8+ Tap-Outs: Discount at Kilroys
    iii. If both: Free hotdog at next football game

    Exciting stuff, I tell ya

    Well I guess we should take this as a compliment, but adopting a very obvious tradition from another team seems extremely hokey (apologies to Virginia Tech).

    On that front, what does Jaws have to do with gators?

    Indiana is worse than Kentucky. Nobody on TV will see this anyway.

    They probably won't hold too many teams on first and second down so there won't be much chomping going on.

    Iowa started doing it after they played us in those Outback Bowl. They bend their elbows though. Like a menacing bird beak. Oh those Hawkeyes.........

    if a program needs to come up with a "comprehensive plan" to teach students how to act at a football game (including my favorite: "Be loud when opponent is on offense"), then you might as well pack it in and quit.

    Large, bone-crushing jaw strength, long, jagged, sharp teeth, potentially predatory aquatic life forms. Other than that, a two-note theme that is aptly symbolized by the opening/closing arm movement performed by Gator fans.

    Right, right ... but I mean ultimately it's weird that we use that song.

    ^ Indiana is a good academic institution and all, and I'm a complete idiot, but I would guess they mismatched the helmets.
