Apparently, fans do too.
A grassroots movement has started on Facebook and Twitter to “Red Out the Coli” — meaning fans would wear cardinal shirts to the game, which falls on Homecoming Weekend.
What began as a hash tag on Twitter has morphed into a Facebook page that has garnered more than 700 fans since its creation yesterday. Supports want you to know, though, that even if the movement is called #RedOut on Twitter, it all means the same.
“Whatever you want to call it, wear it!!” The group’s Facebook page reads.
It might not come as a surprise that a group of dedicated fans is trying to pack the Coliseum with Trojan spirit. In USC’s last game against California, the Coliseum was noticeably more empty than usual — the announced attendance was 72,368, short of the 92,516 capacity.
Thus, the group implores fans, “Come early, be loud, wear red, Fight On.”
And it seems like a certain head coach is taking note of what his fans are trying to do.
