The Lyrics

It's college football season again! GO BLUE!!! Original song:
Dear Mr. Tressel, I am a wolverine
Past few years were not grand
But you were beat more times in case you forgot
Stay out of the Big House

Dear Mr. Tressel, I am the MAC conference
First few weeks, a huge pain
We’re getting walloped while you just pad your stats
And you float to four and 0

Dear Mr. Tressel, this is the SEC
The guys who stopped your dreams
Gators and Tigers beat you for the title
So you’ll stay at number two

Dear Mr. Tressel, this is your missing sleeves
Sweater vests in demand
I think they’re dumb, would you please just take us back?
Arms are cold, it’s us you need

Dear Mr. Tressel, this is the fourth quarter
Oh so calm, in this time
Your Tressel-ball, it’s boring and won’t excite
All your fans, just throw a pass!

Dear Mr. Tressel, this is the great Big House
The Horseshoe, a lame site
You’ve got your scarlet, blue looks best in the sun
Grey looks bland on anyone

Dear Mr. Tressel, again, the wolverines
No response from first verse
We’re still better, so get lost Mr. Big Shot

Tell me, why must we fight?
Why can’t we get it right?
Michigan wins this time
Tressel just leave tonight

You have beat us this time
And the last eight or nine
But your should run in fright
Michigan’s back to fight

I don't really follow college football so a lot of this really escaped me. Maybe you should include extensive footnotes on your parodies (I'm kidding; please don't). But it worked just fine with the original, and I can tell you know your stuff so good job. Oh, and any mention of sweater vests always make me laugh for some reason so well done there too.

Echo Claude, though good job on a song that really did deserve it (Fireflies was cool, but this one--wow too much--I wonder what he would sound like without all this editing)

No idea what this song was remotely about because I follow college football as much as I follow ferret shows (which is not at all... Don't mean to offend anybody who enjoys going to ferret shows). Needless to say the topic escaped me.

SOTM - Understanding what goes down in college football is like me taking Digimon over Pokemon. But I'm sure it's well thought out and such.

SOTM - Nice trib, and great song to write for football season. Also don't follow college football much and love this Owl City song, especially with their electronica tunes. Throwing 555 passes for this one!

(SOTM) Basically what Matthias said (incidentally, the only ferret shows I've been to are whatever plays my younger brother has been in, as we call him a ferret).
