Miami Hurricanes Fan Who Mimicked Texas A&M’s Yell Leaders Every Move During The Entire Game Is Comedic Gold

Texas A&M’s Yell Leaders have been in the headlines a lot over the past few weeks and deservedly so. Each year, as the college football season rolls around, the long-standing Aggie tradition of the Midnight Yell makes waves.

The Midnight Yell itself is cool. Every night prior to the game, fans gather together to practice their cheers for the next day. It makes for one of the most raucous and intimidating environments in college football.

However, the ‘Yell Leaders’ that lead the Midnight Yell are not so cool. Dressed in overalls, they pace with an awkward hitch in their giddy-up while delivering some cringeworthy disses about their opponents. It’s like a bad stand-up routine.

Now, the Yell Leaders don’t write the jokes. They stem from a tradition that is not particularly worth celebrating. When Texas A&M was a male-only school, female visitors would leave the game during blowouts. To try and keep them around, the underclassmen were forced to provide entertainment.

It has stuck ever since. Their Midnight Yell prior to the Miami game on Saturday was tough to watch.

On game day, the Yell Leaders lead the cheers with unique hand signals.

On Saturday, It Was Not Just The Aggies Who Were Leading The Yells

A Miami fan joined in on the fun. Throughout the entire game, the Hurricanes fan, who was sitting in the Aggies section, mimicked each and every one of the Leader’s movements.

Obviously, Texas A&M went on to win, so the Aggies got the last laugh. But the dedication from the Miami fan cannot go under-appreciated. It really could not have been funnier.

  1. You anti-A&M hard-on is noted. I’m sure you were really disappointed that the Ags won.

    Yell Leaders are mocked because they are different, which we think is awesome. The overalls at midnight Yell is paying homage to our agricultural roots. One of our yells is Farmers Fight.

    You’re quoting a dude in your post, a t-sip loving hack that writes anti-A&M books and is twitter obsessed with A&M, you know, like you.

    I remember when Clay came to some of our events and I actually had a beer with him and he is a good dude. I am surprised he employs someone whose main job is anti-A&M clickbait. But here you are.

  2. Most people love and appreciate what Outkick does because the writers were, for the most part, fans of football and didn’t cave to groupthink. Sure, if A&M or any other school does something stupid, it will be written about, but then it would be onto the next story making sure not to seem to pick sides. None of this is new to A&M, College Football, or the traditions and has been going on since Outkick was founded.

    Not sure what Grayson’s hard-on is with writing multiple articles a week bashing the Aggies, and not sure how someone from the opponent making fun of the other team’s traditions is a story. Since it is, I will wait for the other 100 stories you have written and be ready to post about every game from over the weekend cause it happens at all of them.
