re: Hong Kong inspired College Gameday Signs ?
Here is how it works.

Once you arrive around 3-4am there will be a large line already formed with drunk college kids and their signs. This line will be for entry into 'the pit', the area directly behind the set and where the majority of visible signs will be. Gameday employees will be mingling with the crowd and checking out signs. If they find an offensive sign during this stage they will tell you to chunk the sign or leave, and even potentially confiscate the sign. They will have those giant sharpies on hand to allow people to edit their signs. It was at this point in Tuscaloosa in 2013 that a hilarious (and very professionally done) "Mark Richt is railing Zack Mettenberg's mom" sign was filtered out. The sign was giant and had no chance of sneaking in.

Sometime around 6am the pit will be opened. Gameday crew will then call all of the women in the crowd to the front of the line. This is to allow the girls to get in without being trampled and killed by frat bros, and of course to get hot girls up front. They will then break the line up into multiples line similar to how you enter different gates at a stadium. At this point every sign is checked. If it is offensive it is thrashed, and if you object security is called. Once the show starts during every commercial break security is coming into the pit to tell someone to knock it off. Typically it's the frat bros climbing on people, stupid stuff like that. During one commercial break apparently someone deemed a sign that was previously allowed in to be offensive, so a sharpie was brought to a guy next to me and he had to edit his sign. I wish I remembered what it said. Also during these breaks you will have the camera rolling through the crowd looking for good signs that may be obstructed. A producer will be crawling through the crowd telling people to hold their sign up for the camera and even having people pass their signs up to the front of the crows for a good camera shot. At this point a producer yelled at me to hold my sign toward a camera for a solo shot. Later that day me and the crew ere carrying our sign back to the car and a older couple recognized it from the show and called us over for a picture. She said it was her favorite sign of the day.

It is seemingly easier to sneak in good signs if you're not in the pit but on the out skirts, but of course the chances of it being on television is slimmer.

Why not just bring some innocuous sign and smuggle a marker in and just write something about Hong Kong on the back of your innocuous sign?

Seems simple enough...



That’s exactly what happens

When I was in school a buddy of mine did that

And wrote frick Clemson on the other side

He tried to get on TV but obviously didn’t make it, and was then asked to leave

I really don’t think you’d get enough people to play along

Not because they don’t believe in the stance, because they just don’t care

That would work

But that’s not exactly something that everyone could say “ah it’s because of the HK protests”

It’s not like it would take 1000 students to hear a “Free Hong Kong” chant. All it would take is 5-10 people. That’s absolutely doable....having said that, I think being that it’s in Baton Rouge, I don’t think it would be hard to get 1000 students to chant it tho. JMO...

12 baws need to each have a sign with just one letter and wait until when corso is about to make his pick and put the signs together to spell out one gigantic "free Hong Kong" sign.
