As much as I despise the University of Wisconsin as a whole, the tradition of playing the House of Pain’s “Jump Around” is pretty awesome.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who took advantage of the graduate-transfer rule and played one year in Madison after playing most of his college career at NC State. Wilson lead the Badgers to a Big Ten Championship and a Rose Bowl appearance in 2011. On Saturday, Wilson retuned to Madison to give the commencement speech at the Class of 2016’s graduation ceremony.
Wilson couldn’t complete his speech without the “Jump Around” tradition. I think my favorite part is the professors in their red robes.
Kentucky needs something like this at its graduation ceremony, badly.
