Southern Miss to the Top! Response Cheer

Southern Miss Shout Out | Nasty Bunch | Are you from Dixie?

Signal - "Southern Miss!"

Response - "To the top!"

The Southern Miss response cheer is used among Southern Miss alumni, students and supporters. The initiator of the cheer says, "Southern Miss!" The responder says, "to the top!" Hand signals accompany the cheer, which are two gestures upward with the index finger, done by both the initiator and responder.

The Southern Miss response cheer is specifically used during Southern Miss football games when the Golden Eagles make a first down. The cheer is also encouraged as a greeting and to celebrate or recognize Southern Miss accomplishments and is an opener and closer in Southern Miss events.
