Yell during Chant
Brian Wysocki | Tuesday, September 14, 2010
Matthew Keenan is bothered that no students make noise during the Celtic Chant. Whose fault is that? Celtic Chant is a wall of noise and the arm swings are not stopping the non-band students from screaming while it is played. Everyone: YELL DURING CELTIC CHANT! If we all do our part to make noise, Notre Dame will be a tougher place for teams to play.
Also, vuvuzelas would surely be prohibited by NCAA Rule Rule 9-2-1-b-6: “Persons subject to the rules, including bands, shall not create any noise that prohibits a team from hearing its signals.” While this is no longer enforced for simple screaming (see: Michigan 1988), vuvuzelas would very likely cost the team 15 yards. This rule is why the band stops playing when the opposing quarterback is ready to take his snap.
