And their answer was made resoundingly clear in the hundreds of replies to the original tweet before the SEC finally removed it from their timeline altogether.
It seems that after a long 2021 season of hearing “Fancy Like,” Hayes’ previous hit, in every stadium and on countless Applebee’s commercials 25 times a game, fans are over it… full stop.
A few fan responses included ranking “Y’all Life” as an equal insult to putting Missouri in the East and didn’t even stop when a fan said the selection of song was embarrassing to Jesus.
The community outburst serves as a staunch reminder to the SEC that they are also representing the home states of country music, and their selection could use more than one millisecond of consideration before making anything official.

Here is the horrendous song clip posted and since deleted by the @SEC. In its entirety. Worst thing to happen to the SEC since allowing Missouri into the conference.
I wouldn’t have believed Walker Hayes could come out with a worse song than Fancy like and yet, here is one! It’s an absurdity that people think he is good. It’s an even bigger absurdity that the SEC tried to claim this song as this fall’s college football anthem. https://t.co/qCgp9x0LCb
