NCAA College Football Fight Songs Music Index #fight #song, #music, #songs #college,


(BCS & Other Division I Football Index Page)

Get the Best Fight Songs (HQ Stereo) on 20 Different Music CD’s. Please Help Support This Site.

Welcome to the “LARGEST” College Football Fight Song web site in the universe, where all the songs are now in MP3 format. I have always been a fan of college football and especially the Nittany Lions of Penn State. All the MP3’s on this site have been compressed 11 to 1 in size and reformatted in mono, all to help save webspace. It has been a rough ride these past 2-3 years as interest seems to hae waned a bit and it is more costly to keep the site up for FREE! And now certain schools like Miami (FL), Washington and Utah forced me to remove the school’s songs from the website, even though they are free to download and isn’t this kind of like FREE advertisement for those schools? And all those millions of dollars the football programs bring and to top that with the price of tuition, you would think they would want to share the songs with their alumni, current students and fans of those schools. If anyone can help, please do to get those songs back up and available on this site. I am also in the process of adding as many or all of the football schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). After completion, there will be well over 1,000 total songs for you FREE to download. I will also be reformatting all the music CD’s, moving teams to the correct conference CD and adding all the new schools, even the FCS schools.

Also, you will still be able to purchase your favorite school songs via email for $5 or less per school or per conference. Especially the FCS conferences, where 1-2 schools songs will be prevailant throughout. You will want the higher quality songs for your ringtone(s) on your cellphone and iPhones. But please don’t forget about the CD’s, they also help in the funding for this site or shopping at one of the sponsors on this site. And if you are not considering a purchase at this time, please consider a friendly donation of $10 or $20 or any value at that to make sure this website stays up and running for many years to come and into the future. Thank you very much for your continued support.

College Football Fight Music CD’s (21 Volumes)

My College Football Fight Music CD/MP3 Store has changed many times over the years as the NCAA Football Conference realignment is a never ending process as money dictates which schools play in the
(5) major BCS conferences and who play in the other FBS mid-major football conferences. My collection now contains 21 different CD’s, with Volumes 1 & 13 focus on all five of the power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12, SEC and Notre Dame). These same conferences are also focused on: Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19, 20 and 14 (alma maters). The mid-major conferences, which now include the AAC, CONF-USA, MAC, MWC an the SUNBELT are representive on Volumes 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 (alma maters). I also now have different fight music CD’s (Volumes 16, 17 and 18 (alma maters) focusing on the schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Of course it is impossible to include all the songs on the CD’s, thats for both the FCS and FBS CD’s, so you can also purchase the individual songs from each college for only $1-$5 each depending on the number of songs I have available. And if you already purchased in the past, at least a donation would be of great help to me. To send a donation, just click on the PayPal banner just below. Thank you very much.

Mahal-IDF-Volunteers – Free IDF ulpan – Hebrew Study Programs in Israel #army


The IDF and Hebrew Skills

Free IDF Ulpan – IDF Hebrew test – IDF Procedures – Civilian pre-army programs

The IDF service language is Hebrew. Exams and enlistment interviews are conducted in Hebrew. The criteria for examining Hebrew skills are not published and the assessment is at the discretion of the IDF.

The IDF enlists eligible volunteers without reference to Hebrew skills. If the IDF Recruitment Bureau (Lishkat Giyus ) finds you meet all criteria – except sufficient Hebrew skills – you will be enlisted into the IDF, but assigned to an ULPAN (an IDF Hebrew study program) which is free of charge .

The army ulpan is located near Carmiel. in the same IDF base where all Mahal volunteers do their pre-basic training. The IDF Hebrew studies program operates in combination with pre-basic training, which includes handling weapons, and both are part of your military service. Video – here .

From the date of your enlistment you are an Israeli soldier with all the privileges and obligations. Therefore, the IDF will pay you both a monthly salary and a generous grant upon completing service and other substantial benefits, including payment for the additional months spent in the IDF ulpan.

Because of constant exposure to a Hebrew speaking environment in the IDF, the Hebrew language skills of Mahal volunteers improve considerably during the first months of their service.

Please Note:
You should be able to complete and pass all IDF enlistment procedures within about 6-8 weeks after your arrival in Israel. But, if you think your Hebrew language skills are not up to par for IDF service, make sure to choose an enlistment date marked with Free IDF Ulpan – here.

If, at the outset, you select an

  • enlistment date marked with Free IDF Ulpan but SUCCEED in the IDF Hebrew exam, the resulting NON-assignment to an army ulpan will: (1) delay your enlistment by about two months to the next available enlistment date WITHOUT ulpan; and (2) shorten your minimum service time from 18 to 14 months. Therefore, from the outset, if you choose an enlistment date marked with Free IDF Ulpan. FAIL the IDF Hebrew test. Thus, you avoid risking unnecessary expense, delays and hassle.
  • enlistment date NOT marked with Free IDF Ulpan but FAIL in the IDF Hebrew exam, the resulting assignment to an army ulpan will: (1) delay your enlistment by about two months to the next available enlistment date with Free IDF Ulpan; and (2) prolong your total minimum service time from 14 to 18 months (including the army ulpan). Therefore, from the outset, choose an enlistment date marked with Free IDF Ulpan. if you believe you might fail in the IDF Hebrew test. Thus, you avoid risking unnecessary expense, delays and hassle.
  • IMPORTANT: If, nevertheless, you are considering enlisting in a civilian pre-army program (mechina), with or without an ulpan, before your IDF service, please read the following information.

    For a few years, civilian organizers have been advertising an alleged Mahal pre-military program without it ever having taken place in reality at all. They are also using a website address similar to ours and are even asking for donations, while making the outrageous claim that program participants will carry on the tradition of the 1948 volunteers, and walk in the footsteps of Mahal members from 1948 until these days . Please note that Mahal volunteers, called Mahalniks, have been coming to Israel since 1948 to serve in the Israeli Defense Forces, but not in tourist programs.

    Frequently asked Questions and Answers

    Q. What is the difference between the advertised alleged Mahal pre-military civilian program and the official IDF Mahal recruitment programs that promotes?

    A. The expensive 5-months-civilian-touristic-program advertised is not a bona fide IDF Mahal program. The organizers charge considerable sums of money for services automatically provided FREE OF CHARGE to IDF soldiers . All services stipulated on our website are provided free of charge: we NEVER ask for, nor accept, donations.

    If you wish to volunteer for service in the IDF, don’t waste your time and money on make-believe Mahal pre-military programs for civilians. Register online here now, get our pre-check of your eligibility and information, choose a suitable IDF enlistment date. come to Israel and enlist, a few weeks after your arrival, in the Israel Defense Forces. When accepted, you will be provided with an IDF uniform, service weapon, and with military training, enabling you to personally fight for our country. Needless to say, the IDF does not charge soldiers for this service. On the contrary, the IDF pays its soldiers a monthly salary and provides a generous grant upon completing service and other substantial benefits, including payment for the additional months spent in the IDF ulpan. Other free of charge benefits include: IDF Hebrew studies (ulpan), pre-basic and military training, accommodation, food, insurance, fitness training, bus and train tickets and much more.

    Q. Why should I enlist in an IDF Hebrew studies program (ulpan) and not in any other Hebrew study program?

    A. Studying Hebrew before enlistment is not a bad idea, but no civilian program can guarantee you that your newly acquired Hebrew skills will suffice for passing the IDF Hebrew test. This puts the participants of any civilian pre-army program at a distinct disadvantage. If you choose an enlistment date NOT marked with Free IDF Ulpan – here – and fail the IDF Hebrew test, which some participants of civilian programs do, you will have to wait an additional 2 months for the next enlistment date marked with Free IDF Ulpan. As a result, prior to your enlistment you will have spent at least 5 months in the civilian pre-army program + 2 months waiting for the next enlistment date = 7 months, as well as a considerable sum of money.

    Financially, civilian programs have a double disadvantage: you pay a lot for participating but you also lose what the IDF would have paid you had you enlisted in the IDF in the first place namely, a monthly salary and a generous grant upon completing service, both calculated on basis of the number of months you served (including the time in the free IDF ulpan).

    If, despite these explanations, you chose to consider a civilian pre-army program, do not sign a contract with the organizer before checking the terms with a lawyer. Check with us if that organization has a proven track record for organizing pre-army programs. Do not agree to pay any sums before you have officially completed and passed the required IDF Hebrew test.

    A-10 pilot who braved hailstorm of anti-aircraft fire to save soldiers receives


    A-10 pilot who braved ‘hailstorm of anti-aircraft fire’ to save soldiers receives Silver Star

    In the opening days of the Iraq war, soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division’s 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment were advancing on Baghdad when they ran into fierce resistance from the Iraqis.

    Tanks and armored infantry fighting vehicles dug in on the eastern side of a bridge across the Tigris River unloaded on the troops.

    In his A-10 Thunderbolt overhead, then-Capt. Gregory Thornton saw the task force’s lead element taking fire and swung into action. He flew through a blinding sandstorm, dodged heavy anti-aircraft fire, and took out the Iraqi armor holding back the troops.

    On Friday, Thornton — now a retired lieutenant colonel — will be honored for his bravery that day, April 6, 2003, by receiving the Silver Star, the nation’s third-highest award for valor.

    “This courageous and aggressive attack, while under withering fire and in poor weather, along with Captain Thornton’s superior flying skills and true attack pilot grit, allowed Task Force 2-69 Armor to cross the Tigris River with minimal combat losses and successfully accomplish their objective of linking up with coalition forces completing the 360-degree encirclement of Baghdad,” the citation accompanying Thornton’s Silver Star read. “By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Captain Thornton has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.”

    Thornton and his leader fought for 33 minutes, braving “the ever-increasing hailstorm of anti-aircraft fire,” and destroyed or demobilized three T-72 tanks, six armored personnel carriers and several utility vehicles that were within striking distance of the U.S. troops, the citation said. He flew his Warthog within 3,000 feet of the enemy several times to open fire with his 30mm Gatling gun, showing “complete disregard for his personal safety.”

    Before he retired, Thornton was assigned to the 75th Fighter Squadron at Pope Air Force Base in North Carolina. Gen. Mike Holmes, the head of Air Combat Command, will present the medal to Thornton in a ceremony Friday evening at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
