I took the afternoon off work and went over to Jane Sage Cowles Stadium to watch the Gopher softball team play in the regional final. After genuinely rotten weather all weekend, nothing but brilliant sunshine today. They dispatched Georgia and advance to the Super Regionals.

I also wasn't used to the Battle Hymn of the Republic used as a fight song. Usually that's played by the Gopher band after the Gophers have swept a hockey series.  I find it odd that multiple universities in the deep Confederacy use a bluebelly rally cry as their fight song.

Well, nothing about UGA is original, and it borrows from the north.  G on the helmet - Green Bay's.  Bulldog mascot - Yale's.

And Athens is a city in Greece :)

UGA was around before the Packers and that music, but not Athens, Greece.

REM.  Wide Spread distress.  B52s.  The US Constitution.  Etc.

OU took the tune of its fight song from Yale, so it turns out land isn't the only thing they steal. :)

A good fight song is good.

Shirley having hedges around your field is singular, no?  And an east west orientation?

And the red and black, no?  Did I mention Herschel Walker?

I was talking about this with a realtor.   Virtually nothing is original.  Much of life's ideas and work product is inspired by others.  Home design is another.

Only part of it is from Yale.  The other part is from North Carolina.
Neither part is stolen from "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad," though.

I didn't know about Sanford Stadium's E-W orientation, but it's not singular.
Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Oklahoma, is so oriented.

Yes, almost exclusively N-S.  Otherwise the sun could become a major factor, rising or setting in one endzone and not the other.

(and yes I know football games aren't typically played at sunrise, but it could still be a factor in 11 AM games, especially later in the season)
