Poll: 'Jump Around' named best tradition

Forget the Big Ten, Wisconsin’s “Jump Around” is the nation’s best tradition, according to SiriusXM College Sports Nation Traditions Tournament.

The Camp Randall Stadium staple, which has been conducted between the third and fourth quarters since 1998, beat out Big Ten rival Ohio State’s “Script Ohio” in the tournament’s final.

This is a tradition every Big Ten fan should experience at least once. Madison is a great college town, and it doesn’t get much more electric than when the House of Pain song blares on fall Saturday afternoons at Camp Randall.

From that video, it looks like that is the only exercise some of those fans get.

I have experienced it three times. Lame. Lame. Lame.

Does it have its own license plate? No? Then it is not a tradition, just a distraction.
