Midnight Yell Practice, known locally as Midnight Yell or Yell Practice, is a tradition at Texas A&M University. Midnight Yell is similar to a pep rally. On the night before each home football game, Midnight Yell takes place in Kyle Field at midnight; two nights before each away game, a Yell Practice (not at midnight) is held near the Quadrangle on the south side of campus. At midnight on the night before an away game Midnight Yell is held in or near the opponent's city.
Besides exciting the crowd, Midnight Yell introduces the student body to any new yells and to practice changes to existing yells. All yell practices are led by the Yell Leaders, a set of five students who are elected to one-year terms by the student body.

“Predatory capitalism created a complex industrial system and an advanced technology; it permitted a considerable extension of democratic practice and fostered certain liberal values, but within limits that are now being pressed and must be overcome. It is not a fit system for the mid- twentieth century.”
—Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
“I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris and he;
I galloped, Dirck galloped, we galloped all three;
Good speed! cried the watch as the gate-bolts undrew,
Speed! echoed the wall to us galloping through.
Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
And into the midnight we galloped abreast.”
—Robert Browning (18121889)
“It is restful, tragedy, because one knows that there is no more lousy hope left. You know youre caught, caught at last like a rat with all the world on its back. And the only thing left to do is shoutnot moan, or complain, but yell out at the top of your voice whatever it was you had to say. What youve never said before. What perhaps you dont even know till now.”
—Jean Anouilh (19101987)
