RE: Marching Bucs
Its annoying even as a touchdown song. That was probably the worst thing about the Spring game. It was annoying to everyone that I talked to. We have to come up with something MUCH better than that for touchdowns.

It wasn't annoying to me, but I do live the country.

How bout the fight song? Play it through the point, just bring it soft and play it loud after the PAT play is completed...
Just please, no Wagon Wheel after every touchdown/score. Maybe once a game, that's it.

I am in favor of Wagon Wheel but maybe once a game also. We need to hear other things from our band. I am anticipating the band just like football. To think what we have had to do without the past 12 years!

RE: Marching Bucs
I'm wondering which bars get this reaction for Wagon Wheel in JC? Everywhere I go the reaction is great and people obviously sing out the "Johnson City" line.

Opinions on songs obviously vary widely. Heck, there are plenty of people that are annoyed by Rocky Top -- both those from outside Tennessee as well as people who call the state home. Wagon Wheel falls in the more "beloved" column in my opinion, and has been the reason for the push to utilize it at games.

I don't think starting petitions for what should and should not be played is appropriate at this point, mainly because the first game hasn't even kicked. It will all depend on fan reaction, etc., not to mention the ultimate factor, which is the actual composition of Wagon Wheel that the band comes up with.

As for the other plans by the band, it's sounding great. And the halftime show line up appears really solid.

I get emotional at Rocky Top and I'm not even a UT fan. I think it's more because Tennessee is my home. Wagon Wheel is definitely a beloved song, I don't know why it would get hate besides the Darius Rucker cover.

It will just be the fight song.

Glad more sensible heads prevailed there. Wagon Wheel is a great song on its own; but not the upbeat cadence/tempo of Rocky Top, and certainly not for the amped-up atmosphere a college football game should be.

They play "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver at West Virginia games, but I agree with the music should be more upbeat.

RE: Marching Bucs
John Denver opened Milan-Puskar stadium in Morgantown. Musicians are sick of Wagon Wheel to the point 20 dollars might get it played in Nashville. I think I saw a sign in a bar in the spring up there that said NO WAGON WHEEL in all caps. I laughed because its true. Its overdone.
