DDT Cheer as remembered decades later

 

While going through old photos, brother Michael Clark (rb-33 72-78) found this cheer. He and others remembered it. Their comments from our web site are below:

“….don't know who wrote it, but I've heard that chant several times while at FIT”

As I remember, we inherited the "Hotty Toddy" cheer from the SAE's. Origin can be traced to Ole Miss.” See here https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1609661-hotty-toddy-understanding-the-ole-miss-cheer-its-history-significance

It (top page) was the chant I remember the DDT flag football team making at the end of each game.

The first time I saw this cheer list (top page) was at a FIT vs FTU basketball game. I'm not sure who prepared the handout. In addition, someone made a falcon that was suspended from the ceiling over the bleachers where we sat. Unfortunately the wings looked like they belonged on an airplane rather than a bird. We had our banner in the bleachers and we were quite vocal during the game repeating our cheers. Sitting close by was a group on fans from the crew team. They had their own cheers. The most popular one was "FU Too FTU!". The following week there was a letter to the editor in the FTU school news paper excoriating the FIT fans for the foul language coming from the bleachers during the game and the author put the blame on us (probably because our banner was prominently displaced). As I recall, we did respond to the editor with our side of the story and they did publish it.

I think Crew had its own bus and they would go to games with a keg on board. I remember them passing one of the other FIT buses on the way home and doing a group moon, which the other bus had to return of course.”

I found this picture to go with your (John Pierce) story. Thanks!

If I remember we liberated just about all the toilet paper on campus, except Grissom 2nd floor, to fill in the chicken wire frame.

I believe I headed up the sign (I had roll of white news print and mixed, I think, tempra paint) and I think TLP headed up the "Falcon"! We were severely limited by budget for the bird...what we could have done with some pvc

WOW!! Memories, in the shadow of my mind!
