‘Not Gay’ Disappearing from Good Ol’ Song?

For the past few years, the lyrics to UVa’s “Good Ol’ Song” have been sung differently by many students at football games. After the line “where all is bright and gay,” many students shout out “not gay,” which has resulted in no small amount of turmoil over the years. However, today’s Cavalier Daily reports that Saturday’s game had very few people chanting “not gay,” the quietest within recent memory. This may mark the beginning of the end for “not gay.”

  1. No wonder UVA speaks of the “year” a student is in, rather than the “class.” Lack of class seems to be the problem among the drunken louts at football games.

    Good point, but most definitely not an exclusively UVA phemonenon, I can assure you.

  3. Excellent point! Besides, the “seasoned” students started leaving the game midway through the second quarter, before Virginia scored. Give them another chance – the next game is with Penn State, at night.
