And as new as your program is I'm interested in your fan's traditions and that of the band's that you all partake in during the games. Have you created a name for your band? I really like the uniforms they march in, they remind me of the all white uniforms the Ga Tech Band marches.
I'm just a band geek haha. Troy has a long history between its Marching Band and Football team, and I'd like to see FIU's band become a power house in the Belt as the Sound of the South (Troy) and the Band of Blue (MTSU) have.
Unfortunately, there have been rumors about the band being cut. That would be a horrible situation. I think we would be the only Div-1 football team withouth a band.
As small as the band has been, football always goes with a band. Shame if they can't keep it.
That is a shame....i was in Troys band, and from what I saw, you guys didnt look less than 100 members...shoot that is good compared to some of the others and not much smaller than ULM which is about 130 and stAte's band which is about 160. That is rediculous to do that. Tell me who I need to contact down there. I will send a letter.
that would still be better than being a D1 school with a marching band but no football team..UTA
