"Hic Haec Hoc, hit them in the jock...."

This is the oipening line of a cheer at G-Prep from just before my time. Does anybody know the rest of it?

Could become our signature cheer if it catches on. Only problem is, it won't.

Talked to several other students about it today, and their reaction was mostly, "Wait, really?"

What's next ? Signs written in Sanskrit ? Cheers set to iambic pentameter ?

Better than all the played out stuff. Personally I like it. Wish they got a little more creative, maybe a chant rather than forcing the latin into the english mold of "this is our house", but its a start. :)

At staff/faculty ticket distribution the kennel club was handing out wrist bands with "Haec est domus nostra" on it and they also brought donuts so it wasnt as bad. They said that it was Father Hightower's idea.

I would like to see four KC members spell out ZAGS with their bodies. They haven't done that in awhile.

Cool idea, but there could be a better implementation.

It would also help if they pronounced "haec" correctly...where's Fr. Krall when you need him?

It's something. At least there is effort. Would be good if all students were on board. Sure there will be some ######rs who will be too cool, but whatever

I loved that cheer. Not sure why they don't do it anymore. Pretty sure I still have scars from skidding across the floor.

It's a good thing everyone was properly "lubricated" to help dull the pain when we did it.

You should be on the Kennel Club Board!

To the Tune of the MARTINS AND THE COYS

1. Now in Latin there are only five declensions
All the endings you must memorize and say:
“a” is for the NOMIN-A-TIVE. “ae” GENITIVE AND DATIVE
“am” ACCUSATIVE. The ABLATIVE long “a”.

Chorus:
Start with
a-ae-ae-am-a…….then ae – arum – is – as – is
And repeat the first declension every day:
“a” is for the NOMIN-A-TIVE, “ae” GENITIVE and DATIVE
“am” ACCUSATIVE,The ABLATIVE long “a”.

2. Now the second one is very very simple:
us – i – o – um –o…….i – orum – is – os – is
And the neuter starts with bellum – belli – bello – bellum – bello
Plural: a- orum – is -a -is.

Chorus :
Start with:
us-i-o-um-o. Then i – orum – is – os – is.
It is masculine. Remember five apiece.
And the neuter starts with bellum – belli – bello – bellum – bello
Plural a- orum – is –a- is.

3. You will find that when you come to third declension
Nouns’ll end in l….and . . . .r….and….s….and….x
Dux and ducis duci ducem duce…….lucis, luci lucem luce
CONSUL…… IMPERATOR….. MILES…. REX.

Chorus:
Start with:
blank -is -i -em -e. Third declension for today
es – um – ibus – es – ibus. Say it next:
dux and ducis duci ducem duce…. .lucis luci lucem luce.
CONSUL. . . . ..IMPERATOR….. MILES. . . . .REX.

4. One….two….three….and then we come to Fourth Declension
us – us – ui – um – and – u. It’s Just a ball
Plural us – uum. – ibus – us accusative and ibus.
Now we’re ready for the fifth and that is all.

Chorus:
Start with:
es – ei – ei – em – e……then the plural right away:
es and erum ebus, es – ebus……..too
First you SAY IT then you PLAY IT. But be sure you EVERY DAY IT
And with all the five declensions you are through.

5. NOW YOU HAVE TO LEARN YOUR VERBS AND CONJUGATIONS
Present o – as -at and -amus -atis – ant.
The imperfect starts with -abem –abes -abat.Then -abamus
-batis, ending up third plural vocabant.

Chorus:
Start the future
vocabo … .vocabis … and vocabit
Vocabimus, vocabitis, vocabunt.
Start the perfect: with vocavi… .vocavisti. …. and vocavit
Vocavimus.. ..vocavictis, and -erunt.

6. To the perfect stem add: -eram -eras -erat
Then -eramus.,. then -eratis….. then -erant
When you’ve ended the pluperfect——Future Perfect:
-ero -eris -erit –erimus -eritis and erint

Chorus:
Start:
ille, illa, illud…..qui, quae, quod….and hic, haec, hoc
Is and ea id….acer, acris, acre
Ego, mei, mihi, me, me…Tu and tui tibi te te
That’s the end and now it’s time to shout HOORAY!

Like a Gregorian chant? That would be different and somewhat interesting. Just monotone chanting.

It really doesn't have to be that complicated:

"WE LOVE THAT TEAM" clap clap clap clap - All hands then point at GU

"Can't Stand that TEAM" clap clap clap clap - all hands point to SMC

Simple, coordinated, funny.

Instead of : "that ref sucks" and pointing - - "that ref smells" and hold their nose whenever he runs down the court.

Keep it very simple - very original and very coordinated.

Rock chalk, jayhawk is the worst cheer in the history of sports, and makes me want to fight people from Kansas.

the exact opposite, and I agree with Teddy, sorry, Mal. I have been to KU games before, and the energy of their fans is the best, the very best in college sports. I have never seen an atmosphere like there is in the Phog. It is colorful, festive, well coordinated, and absolutely electric.

I will say that the Kennel is also one of the best crowds I've ever seen. However there is a big difference. KU's fans are all noisy, alumni and students, and they all yell the cheers and do the songs and the waving of the wheat, etc. They don't have the edge of the Kennel Club, there is an air of civility, like they've been there before, and they have. It is a classy and spirited crowd and their fans are very knowledgable. As friendly and sportsmanlike as KU fans tend to be, they really hate Mizzou, and I don't blame them. So do I.
