No that's not where it originated. Gonzaga is another college in Spokane, Washington which is way far east of University of Washington (here in Seattle) and so of course there is a huge rivalry. When Gonzaga came to play here in Seattle fans were shouting stuff like "Take a Shower" and "Shave your mustache!" to try and disrupt his play. Didn't work though, he dropped like 43 on us that game, but we still won.
