    Default Dixie

    I'm new to the Troy community and just found out that Troy's fight song used to be Dixie. Why doesn't the SOTS play it now? At least as a stand tune.

    SOTS Plays it as a part of pregame, but it was changed to be politically correct.

    I hope I live to see the day this politically correct crap is put to rest. We are Americans.....just Americans, one word!

    The opening line from Dixie is the major theme of the "Trojan Fanfare". It is a very good and effective way to get that part of the University's history in what is one of the largest pregame ceromonies around. Dr. Long did a wonderful job writing the "Fanfare".
