2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship: Regional Finals Day 1

Bill Orange is upon the sidelines

With a megaphone and flag in hand.

He leads the crowd to cheer like demons,

All up and down the old grandstand;

And as the ball is moving goal-ward

Each yard that’s gained he’s marking well

It’s worth while to play for Old Bill Orange

For win or lose you’ll always hear him yell:


“Get in the game to win, boys,

Ev’ry blessed mother’s son of you;

Stand firm along the line,boys,

Watch the ball, this time it’s going through.

Last night the sun set orange,

Omen ever sure and true,

Get in the game and win , boys,

Old Syracuse, she calls to you!”
