Villanova 2014-2015 Student Section Guide

Villanova Basketball: Student Section Guide 2014-2015

The Villanova Wildcats led by Head Coach Jay Wright, are expected to start the season ranked in the top 15 in the country. As the team progresses and gets better, I believe our student section should do the same. Not only do we want to have the best team in the country, we want to have the best fans/students in the country. Last year we had a trial run vs Butler that allowed us to bring signs and cutouts into the Pavilion and I thought that went really well. Made the student section look unique. We will let you know if the Administration will continue toallow this or not.

With that being said, I believe we need some more/new chants. We have the not very original, "Lets go Nova", Defense, Defense, Defense. I'm not saying get rid of these chants, but we need more variety. The band did a good job last year playing songs while the opponents shot free throws, and the student sectionwent along with it. Very cohesive. The band should continue to do that.

SOME NEW CHANT IDEAS:

  • Right before Tip-Off, you do the, "I believe that we will win" chant. And then everyone jumps up and down.
  • Here is an example of the, I believe that we will win chant, executed perfectly by the Utah State Aggie students.

  • When a player fouls out of the game, the whole student section should mimmick the player that fouled outs footsteps. Like left, right,left, right. When he finally hits the bench you say C YA!
  • Here is an example of that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cYWmeBDJQs
  • In the past we have done a drum roll and a winger swirl when a player fouled out of the game (5 fouls). The footsteps idea is 10X better and gets in the opposing players head.
  • The Augustian Army is a fan group at Villanova. They usually sit first row in the student section, and they will more than likely lead these chants. It is your job as students to follow that and make the #NOVANATION student section one of the best in the country.

When the season approaches, there will more than likely be a meeting about this. Hope the die hard students show up and help improve the student section to support one of the best teams in the country, the Villanova Wildcats!

Comment below if you have any more ideas to improve our student section!!!
