M-I-Z, Z-O-U!

The University of Missouri’s spirit chant that spells the school nickname aloud is separated by hyphens, with a comma between the first and second parts (when used in its entirety) and punctuated with an exclamation point. The chant, heard most frequently at athletics events, is typically started by one group shouting “M-I-Z!” and a second group replying “Z-O-U!”

Example: The crowd shouted, “M-I-Z!,” “Z-O-U!”
