Mr. Orange Power Retiring From Role After 22 Years

Originally published at:

Redick is stepping aside after two-plus decades in his role as Mr. OP.

The cheer originated in 1999?

What was the north side “Orange”, south side “Power” chant I first heard and participated in 1977 as a freshman?

That has been happening as long as I can remember. The 1999 stuff is nonsense.

It’s saying that Redick started getting attention as the Orange Power guy in 1999. Not that he originated the chant.

I was a freshmen in 1975 and I recall doing the orange power cheer back then
