10,000 Men of Harvard

After each Harvard football victory, the team gathers in the locker room and, following the post-game conversation, sings "10,000 Men of Harvard"

Sung in a combination of English and Latin, the team concludes the song by counting the number of points that it scored in that particular game. The team got to sing following 77 percent of its games from 2000-2009 as the Crimson logged the second-best winning percentage in the country at the FCS level and seventh-best in all of Division I.

Ten Thousand Men of Harvard (Alma Mater)

First Verse:
Ten thousand men of Harvard want vict'ry today,
For they know that o'er old Eli
Fair Harvard holds sway.
So then we'll conquer old Eli's men,
And when the game ends, we'll sing again:
Ten thousand men of Harvard gained vict'ry today!

Fourth Verse:
Illegitimum non carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Illegitimum non Carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Gaudeamus igitur!
Veritas non sequitur?
Illegitimum non carborundum -- ipso facto!
