White Out Behind Arkansas’ Calling The Hogs in Traditions Tournament

Football Crowd

After Penn Staters rallied behind the White Out for it to best Georgia’s Between the Hedges in the Sweet 16 of SiriusXM’s College Sports Nation Traditions Tournament, the White Out finds itself in need of help again.

This time, the opponent is Arkansas’ Calling the Hogs, which is basically its version of the We Are chant. The chant is used more frequently than the White Out, as fans perform the calling at every Razorbacks’ sporting event (and even a press conference).

“Calling the Hogs” shouldn’t be hard for us to beat. But as it stands, the White Out is losing to a chant that repeats the line “Pig Sooie” by more than 3,000 votes — frankly, this is incomprehensible. Are we going to let that beat out the greatest spectacle in college football? Let’s make chop suey out of the hogs.

We all know the drill. If there’s one thing that Penn State absolutely dominates everyone else at, it’s winning Facebook votes. So get out there, and vote the White Out to the next round by next Sunday.
