Cincinnati, under new coach Brian Kelly, has this slogan on its schedule poster: “Come early, be loud, wear black.”
Sound familiar, Texas fans? Coach Mack Brown’s rallying cry when he first got to Austin was: “Come early, be loud, stay late, wear (burnt) orange with pride.”
UT might accuse the Bearcats football program of copyright infringement but Brown brought the slogan with him from North Carolina (“Come early, be loud, stay late, wear blue.”)
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Especially when you don’t lift something for which you can get sued.
