It’s the time of year when we all begin getting ourselves psyched for the upcoming college football season. One of the best ways to get revved up is through the power of music.
In his book The Bro Code, Barney Stinson of the TV series How I Met Your Mother muses about the value of a “Get Psyched Playlist.” In Barney’s own words:
(…) my own personal “Get Psyched Mix.” Now, people often think a good mix should rise and fall, but people are wrong. It should be ALL RISE, baby! Now prepare yourselves for an audio journey into the white hot center of adrenaline… Bam!
So on that note, let’s go on our own musical journey with an SEC Get Psyched playlist; one song for each fanbase to use in order to get psyched.
Kentucky has a new man in her life, and she’s going to use all her womanly charms to try to convince Mark Stoops that he hasn’t made a horrible horrible mistake.
Tigers are cats, plus Auburn fans live off memories of 2010.
This one is for you Gary Pinkel:
Tennessee has been built new facilities and got themselves a new coach, but still it feels like putting lipstick on a pig. You can dress that girl up however you like, it’s not going to change the product.
More cowbell plus a fatalistic view on life; this song was made for MSU fans.
Ole Miss tries so hard to be what it isn’t that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Calm down with the BCS talk after rebounding to win the BBVA Compass Bowl, bro.
Arkansas fan’s spirits seem to bounce back no matter how dire the past year was. Plus Bret Bielema kind of looks like the third Blues Brother.
Vanderbilt’s all about anchoring down, and it has the feel of the late 1800’s.
The 13th rebuilding year will be the charm for Mark Richt. With Georgia fans tomorrow is always the greatest day in UGA football history!
Will Muschamp is angry, and Limp Bizkit is like the band version of Gainesville.
LSU’s quarterback was convicted of sexual battery, causing him to be kicked out of UGA. Their leading rusher is waiting on his sentence for battery, and Les Miles wants to see what it is BEFORE he decides whether he will let him play. Just don’t get me started on Honey Badger and Co. Basically Les Miles is the Warden of the SEC’s first all-prison team.
Send in the Clowney.
I think Johnny is getting a bad rap…
Let’s be honest, Alabama owns the college football galaxy.
Of course, your suggestions for an SEC Playlist are welcome. What songs will you be listening to in order to get fired up for the season?
