It started as a rumor on the internet, but BoiFromTroy, a big fan of the boys in white for obvious reasons, is calling it official.
Whether you like the yell leaders or not, it was an 80-year+ tradition, and USC is just starting a new spirit squad called “Team Trojan”. So it seems pro yell leaders and anti yell leaders will both lose.
This does remind us of a story however. Mean? Sure. But funny? Definitely.
Two guys come stumbling out of Traddy’s, spotting a yell leader in full regalia. The one guy sneaks up and punts the yell cone while the other guy is able to run underneath and catch it in stride. The yell cone is brought back to our place and used to yell at people on the row all-year-long.
