Big Ten Leave planning to Protest Vuvuzela

Every game has its own reactions and impression on audience, as World Cup in South Africa has greatly inspired and influenced the mind of a group students belonging to Ohio State. The student group is planning to start an aggressive campaign to bring as many vuvuzelas as possible on November 13 for ‘The Shoe’ clash of Buckeyes with Penn State. To ignite a burning fire in the campaign they also flagged a Facebook page which was boasted with more than 1,760 people committed to turn up along Olentangy banks having vuvuzelas in their hands. Moreover, there is another group of 621 folks joining this group, also expected to come.

Are you still in dilemma what vuvusela is as there is no such word in dictionary, do not worry; just turn on ESPN to see the World Cup coverage and use your sixth sense as this what you are looking for ‘vuvuzela’.

Ohio State admirer and brainchild of the campaign, student Dustin Stinson starting the campaign page excides his fellow students saying that everyone should come holding vuvuzela for the Penn State game but not without noise as this is the indication of making the world hear. He also said that his mission is to bring as many students as possible with encouragement, praise and enthusiasm. The main slogan says like this “provoke as many students to join as you can from all over Ohio State”, let’s do it.

During last year game played against Iowa, a passionate Buckeyes fan was leading the curve putting himself ahead of all brought a vuvuzela or some other imitative stuff. But great sorrow and alas there are clear instructions from the Big Ten to leave your vuvuzela at home or put kibosh on the vuvuzela.

According to the Big Ten Conference held by Per Scott Chipman stated via email this afternoon that there are some specific guidelines and policies of The Big Ten which do not allow any kind of irritations during the game and no kind of vuvuzelas are allowed at all. He also referred football game management manual which makes it clear in strict language.

The non-permissible stuffs, the arena management has the authority to enforce the Big Ten policies to make the game happen successfully. Patrons should not be allowed to bring following items in the arena: cups or container, cans, bottles, alcoholic beverages or any kind of strobe lights. Moreover, there are some other restrictions on specific items which could not be brought in the arena.

He said that he did not know how perfect vuvuzelas are going to show them at a college football game and he was quite sure of a lot of people being pleased to enjoy the Big Ten’s reactions and responses. He does not feel sorry as he is biased, just because his family also belongs to South Africa and he has seen many a times soccer games there. But, he still appreciates the idea of Ohio State students and said that in spite of high security there would must be a pair of smuggled vuvuzelas into The Shoe on November 13.

Vuvuzela bothering you? Well, no more!

One thing, rather an instrument which has gained as much popularity as World Cup 2010 is, Vuvuzela —or ‘Vu Vu horns’. This plastic made instrument is a curse for the ears but has become a cohort for the viewers. A Vuvuzela creates horrible noise which irritates the human brain.

The entire world has started a crusade to eliminate the vuvuzela buzz from World Cup football through all means possible.

An African tradition

The trumpets can be raucous, but now they come with accommodating textured graphics suggestive of the fact that Vuvuzela should not been blown straight at a person’s ear.  Blowing a Vuvuzela at ceremonies has been an old South African football tradition; the horns have now generated an anti-vuvuzela counterattack so sturdy that FIFA president Sepp Blatter has put in lot of efforts to calm down the agitated masses.

The president has ruled out possibilities of banning the instrument. He opines that vuvuzela is a part of the tradition and it cannot be banned from its own country.

Effects of vuvuzela

The steady backdrop buzz of the horns may not be an irritant for TV viewers sitting in the comfort of their homes, but it certainly has annoyed many of them! BBC has received several hundred objections in this regard. Thus, it is by now taking into consideration the broadcasting a “Vuvuzela free” adaptation of the World Cup matches. Impatient soles that cannot wait till then can filter this noise.

Answer to vuvuzela

The world has devised a solution to the buzz of vuvuzela. This solution will be costing €2.95. You will have to visit “”, pay cash, and download a 45-minute MP3 file. This file must be played during the football match, if possible from a speaker placed right beside the television. This specifically created Vuvuzela noise-termination sound is a wave with equivalent amplitude but to reverse the effect of original sound. Thus, it helps the user in canceling the vuvuzela buzz.

For those who do not wish to shell out cash on the filter , can run Linux, OStatic profiles, a practice utilizing the JACK audio association kit to group analogous filters.

It may sound extremely dishonest, but is true. Lively noise cancellation depends on variety of ambient sounds and replicating that reverberation accurately out of point with the original. This results in creation of sound waves terminating each other out. This arrangement would seem doubtful to have much result as it relies on prerecorded vuvuzelas.

Vuvuzela gaining popularity in UK

Vuvuzela sales in the UK are gaining momentum. Sainsbury’s sold 22,000 vuvuzelas in 12 hours before England’s game. This means they sold one vuvuzela in every two seconds! The supermarket chain has prearranged 25,000 additional horns but believes it may come to an end before the game against Algeria.

Correct way to deal with vuvuzela

The best and the most convenient way to deal with the noise of vuvuzela is to just accept it! Don’t bother about the sound and acknowledge it as a part of the World Cup.

Just chill out and pour another beer!!!

A one meter horn like flute becomes the most concentrated thing in this world cup 2010. South Africa and the whole world is dancing with the wave of football, but the sound wave of ‘Vuvuzela’ has come across in the middle with a great irritation to all. Actually the noise made by vuvuzela distracts the attention of the views and players along with harming the ear.

What is ‘Vuvuzela’

‘Vuvuzela’ is termed as ‘stadium horn’ which is maximum one meter in length. In this world cup it became a sign of irritation for its very unpleasant sound, but in the same way it became popular to live spectators on the field as an entertaining device. Traditionally the Vuvuzela has been a part of South African spectators to cheer; and now it has seemed to become a headache for all.

Effects of ‘Vuvuzela’ on Matches and Health

Vuvuzela has several bad effects which can hamper the enjoyment of a match along with some health effects.

First, the sound of vuvuzela can even make a person deaf. South African requested the fans not to blow it on anyone’s ear.

Secondly, The TV viewers have to tolerate the high noise of vuvuzela which is really annoying and disturbing for them.

Thirdly, Players attention may be distracted for the high sound and very odd noise of vuvuzela.

What FIFA Says

Everyday large numbers of complaints are registered in FIFA and other governing agency’s list. Last day BBC announced that every day they are receiving more than hundred requests to ban ‘vuvuzela’. In this context FIFA President Sepp Blatter twitted in the twitter. He said, “I have always said that Africa has a different rhythm, a different sound.” He also explained it like, “I don’t see banning the music traditions of fans in their own country. Would you want to see a ban on the fan traditions in your country?”

How vuvuzela free world matches can be enjoyed

Whatever FIFA president says, people don’t like the annoying disturbance of vuvuzela during the match. So people are looking for an alternative solution to get rid of it. is providing a service with the technology of cancelling the sound wave of vuvuzela by a special method. This interested viewers need to pay €2.95 to get this software. First they need to download a mp3 file which is necessary to be played during the match. This technology is termed as ‘active noise cancellation”. Active noise cancellation depends on sampling ambient sound and reproducing that sound exactly out of phase with the original; the result is that the sound waves cancel each other out.

Popular science gave a different but more difficult solution which is first given by a German Blog ‘Die Surfpoeten’. They use a method of filtering out the most common frequencies of the horn like 233, 466, 932, and 1864Hz. The filters are set up in a program like Logic Express where all audio signals are by passed through a secondary PC for processing of sound.

Lastly if anyone wants a free of cost offer, then ‘JACK audio connection kit’ would be the best solution for him.

Along with all these offers Professor Trevor Cox from the University of Salford, a Acoustic expert don’t think that it’s possible to avoid vuvuzela. So adviced, “Be Zen about it; accept vuvuzelas as part of the World Cup soundscape and pour another beer” in in the Daily Telegraph.
