Who started the Stomp Stomp Clap Clap at FAU?

Just curious where that came from… prOWLers? Greeks? Can't imagine it came from the Dirty Birds.

For those who haven't been to a basketball game, every time we make a free throw the student section does

stomp stomp
clap clap
F-A-U
and a bird circling motion while you say "wooo!"

Because I noticed on UCF basketball's webpage under Traditions:

"One of UCF's most unique basketball traditions is its free throw chant. Started by the "Kirk's Jerks" in the 1990s, UCF fans started holding their right arms with clenched fists almost straight up when a UCF player shoots a free throw. When the basketball is made, the fans would stomp their right foot twice, clap their hands twice, make a shooting motion with their right hand while chanting "woosh." In the more recent years, after the appropriately named Stomp Stomp, Clap Clap, Woosh chant, fans will chant U-C-F afterwards, making a U, a C, and an F over their heads."


Tell me we didn't adopt their thing…

Thats true, it was added later.

The original was started in 2005 by some very handsome gentlemen.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
