    Last game (Saturday) there was only one mellophone! GOTTA HAVE MORE!

    Tell the big man with the big hat, that we are all grateful for what he does for Tech and it's athletics. Tell him that he's an ok guy too.... I guess.

    Some of the things JR made famous at Arkansas when SI named his band tops in the land. He did seveal of this things when he came here back to his alma mater.
    Prior to games, when they arrived at the arena, the pepband would go on the floor, do warmups, stretching, etc. before going to their position.
    At one point during timeouts, about 15-25 brass would go on the floor and line the 3-point strip facing the goal and then play.
    And, at some point in the game, the band would play William Tell Overture and JR would try to circle the arena concourse before the song's conclusion. Protect your children!
    I bet if we got larger crowds they would be rewarded with these kinds of antics.

    The ref can move from his position and go under the goal. Just gotta make sure it's a long timeout . . . like at TV games and not a 30-second timeout.
    Let's just ban cheerleaders, dance lines and the whole college experience at halftime and serve tea and crumpets.
    We need to start making excuses to DO things rather than NOT do things.
    So we p.o. the refs. They're on another planet anyways from what I've seen.

    What abouttttt tuba players in boxes?

    personally, if an official uses his whistle to much i think we ought to surround him with the brass and light him up.

    I remember "back in the day" when we were playing in Memorial we would build a human pyramid at the band end of the court. I was always the one of the four/five guys at the bottom, never figured out why :O)

    used to love what we did after a made free throw when we were sitting in the pull out bleachers. after the made shot we would "clap clap, stomp stomp, clap clap" or was it "stomp stomp, clap clap, stomp stomp"? I'm 42, leave me alone LOL It was loudddd on those pull outs. Then we would leave before the men played :O)

    Last Saturday was the annual Ark-La-Tex high school band conference, which, among other things is a huge recruiting tool for the music department. The Wind Ensemble had a concert that night, and the badn was spread thin working with the high school kids, so I imagine it was a logistical nightmare and not a slight...

    I tried to incorporate cowbell into the games when I was in HT, but I guess they don't do it anymore...

    I'm pretty sure that we've been banned from going on the floor before or during the games. As for running around the arena I asked him if he'd ever do it again he smiled reflectively then sighed and said his body wasn't up to it anymore (heck, some of the kids in hoop troop couldn't do it).
