The Lyrics

Rutgers 37, Kansas State 10 in the Texas Bowl in Houston. The first college football team, in 137 years of play, Rutgers has never before won a bowl game -- and only appeared in two, the second just last year. The laughingstock hasn't yet gotten the last laugh, but it beats crying. Or even apathy, which was also once pretty common "On the Banks of the Old Raritan." But there's more to do...
(instrumental opening)

Knights in red jerseys.
Great season now ends.
Letters they're earning
are now making amends.
Laughingstock program
left us all feeling sore.
Thanks to Greg Schiano
that's not true anymore.

And I love it!
Yes, I love it!
Oh, whoa, I love it!

Always got clobbered
within the Big East.
Blocking and defense
now allow us to feast.
Pittsburgh and U-Conn
and Syracuse
they used to beat us.
They're the ones who now lose.

And I love it!
Yes, I love it!
Oh, whoa, I love it!

(instrumental break)

Knights in red jerseys.
Great season now ends.
Letters they're earning
are now making amends.
Laughingstock program
left us all feeling sore.
Thanks to Greg Schiano
that's not true anymore.

And I love it!
Yes, I love it!
Oh, whoa, I love it!

(instrumental break)

Breathe deep
the offense's zoom.
Watch the Knights arise from their tomb.
Coach Greg Schiano, heaven-sent.
A wise investment in this program is spent.
Impassioned spectators revel as one.
Lonely for victories, now we have some.
New winners, no more of sucking like bum.
Senior citizens recall last time it's done.

Cold football field, it rests at night.
Waits for Rutgers again to take flight.
Wearing the Scarlet that's trimmed with white.
And we decide that now it is right.

Hope it's not an illusion!

(long instrumental close)
Chickening out with that last line? After all those years of watching awful football On the Banks, I'm not taking any chances!

Looks like someone that's in favor of an opposing team left their mark. I don't know anything about the sport, but you did a tremendous job on NIWS...Moody Blues. 5's

The legend lives on
From The Moody Blues on down
Of the big Knight who wore the White Satin
Rutgernians, Mike said, no one gives up for dead,
now that victory's throne they've all sat in

I guess I can't say Rutgers stadium is located in "Piss-that-a-way" anymore, huh? Nice re-ig-Knighting of "White Satin"

Not that I'm a fan of either team--not a college sports guy--but from a parody standpoint--this was very creative, 5's for you sir.
