Reminder: Purdue Created the Worst School Rap Video of All Time

It's Purdue week, so it's time to revisit the worst school rap video of all time (and there have been some terrible, awful, no good school rap videos).

You may recall that Purdue students produced the above rap video, "You Oughta Be Proud," in August. It was everything you'd expect from a rap video produced in West Lafayette, featuring cutting lyrics like:

And if you live in a house, an apartment or dorm, you can always here the whistle. Boiler Special's bringing the storm.

The video quickly caught hell from all corners of the internet and the students behind it pulled it down within hours. But not before it could be mirrored (Purdue students, meet the Streisand effect). Take a second to reflect upon the fact that the name of the song was "You Oughta Be Proud," too.

Lest you think this video is a one-time slip in judgment, don't.

I think i'd wear sunglasses too after watching this video

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.

I remember this video (unfortunately).  If Drew Brees didn't give you enough of a reason to hate Purdue, this video should do the trick for you.

What is wrong with Drew Brees?

Why should they be proud? I didn't get it. The Indiana one was not as bad IMO. I thought it was funny that none of those kids in the video had been born the last time they earned a banner.

I'd rather have my ear poked than to listen to this excuse for noise.

This is one of the many, many reasons I absolutely cannot stand soccer...(unless that dude had like a hypodermic needle in his fingertip and actually did poke a hole in his brain)

I am at work and so am unable to get access to YouTube to 1) see if the links posted by the staff is what I am telling you all about, and 2) to actually provide a link, but since everybody loves Appalachian State for what they did to the Big Out-House in 2007, go to YouTube and search for "Appalachian is Hot, Hot, Hot."
Pretty awful in it's own right.

I just checked that video out NC.   I'd say pretty damn awful in any respect or regard. Too bad they couldn't get some singers

This brings back memories of the "Lifegods." They posed the offensive line in speedos holding their helmets as part of the Brees for Heisman campaign. It was not a good look and I felt bad for one guy who had a look on his face like, "I'm never going to get another date on this campus." 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

These two (including the link) are the worst college videos of all time. This is just pathetic.

I didn't want to click on this link.  I shouldn't, but did.  Why the hell am I so gullible?
I can't believe these guys got into an engineering school.  I can't believe my boss is a PU'er.  No, wait. Yes, I can.

I thought Purdue was a grammar-nazi school?  Or is that just the rhetoric when you lose a la Northwestern, Penn State, etc.?
