In the next few years they will bring him back for a halftime event and then carry him off the field!

The Best Scam Band in the Land.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Well, maybe would could at least win a "battle of the bands" now.  Any victory over OSU would be good

Off-color songs have always been a staple in marching bands, even at (gasp!) Michigan, but the rest of that stuff is pretty bad, and I simply can't imagine Revelli or Cavender using students' nicnames (bad or acceptable) for each other or taking part in a night-time underwear parade, even as a spectator.  This guy had to off the charts crazy to think that any of the stuff mentioned in the article would not be doscovered in this day and age.  "Oaths of secrecy?"  Right...
 
It makes the Glocks and the old Golden Globes (no, not the Hollywood ones) look pretty tame by comparison.  Maybe tO$U needs a Michigan guy to bring their program back into line, but that will never happen either.
 
In a way it's too bad, as their band has always been really good on the field.

It's not like their band is going to all of a sudden suck now.  This guy has only been their director for like 2 years.  They've always been pretty good.  They'll probably get better now that half their time isn't wasted on the grab assing and harassing.

That's a scary thought, they're very good currently.

From what I've read, all this motion marching innovation is all this director though.  So they may take a hit in that regards.
 
 
Personally, "the band" never did anything for me anyway.  Halftimes are for pissing and getting nachos.......LOL

I was the euphonium section leader my sophomore and senior years; also played in the SB all four, which was then pretty rare for a non-music major.  I probably learned more about running an organization from my experiences there than I ever did getting my MBA (also at UM) a couple of years later.
