RE: Southern's band
I bet half the people on here complaining about Southern's have sent money to a Nigerian prince in the last year.

Lighten up, blue hairs. Their band was one the best parts of the game.

Again, for the hard of hearing, great band. GREAT. No couth however. Obnoxious too.

Indeed, their band was really good

What that has to do with the other points being made here I have no idea

Playing during plays I believe is against the rules, and playing loudly during our home game spirit squad celebration was rude, show us some respect too, like we did for them during their halftime show

Them being good, like many other bands, is beside the point in this case

Pretty much agree

Schtick aside, a few things that were surprising

They played loudly while our band was accompanying our spirit squads between the 3d and 4th quarters. That was probably the single most disrespectful and surprising thing

They played during the plays

They played over our band at other times too

The crowd was very respectful to them when they performed at halftime, many watching them then getting up when our band played

They can do better, not an overall good showing

Exactly. The utter rudeness ruined their talent and vitality.

RE: Southern's band
We don't get a lot of visiting bands. We're lucky to get more than one a season.

I've been to games with two bands all my life growing up. Bands play on top of each other all the time. The only time I've ever felt disrespected was Middle Tennessee in 2014. They played over our fight song every time we scored.

Southern barely did that today. They didn't play much at all, really.

I have a lot of pride in our band, but there are very few FBS programs out there that could stand toe-to-toe with the Human Jukebox. It's okay that a band showed up for once and bested us. Their band was a 37-point favorite today, just as our football team was.

All fine

And again, beside the points that they played well over us during the signature 3-4th quarter spirit squad show, played DURING plays, and did not reciprocate the over the top respect we showed them during halftime

I keep seeing that they are good, which everyone seems to agree with

So what

But we played one of their teams today.

Only reason I asked.

RE: Southern's band
I don't know.

When they played "It Ain't Over Til It's Over," an absolutely WONDERFUL song that's based on my favorite EWF song ("That's the Way of the World), and they played it all drive, and we scored, that was just beautiful.

No ref is going to flag that. Ever watched a Southern Cal game?

One of my favorite Tiger memories of recent times.

You either get it or you don't, I guess. I'm glad a few people here appreciated it.

Forget what I said earlier about MTSU. You know what's REALLY disrespectful?

When we played at Ole Miss in 2014 and they strictly forbade us to let our band play - they said we could bring the MSOS, but they couldn't have their instruments.

That is disrespect. Music is not.

On the subject of bands...

Any of you see what Texas did to the LSU band?

Placed them up in the nosebleed, directly in the sun...

They do that for every visiting band. Been doing it for a few years now.

I did think the heavy police presence around the visitor section was pretty funny, though.

I have to admit this made me smile too. I sat near the visiting section.

And it was totally needless, of course. That's not the type of crowd that needs monitoring, unlike the border areas of last week's crowd, for instance.

I have been hoping Memphis would hire a marching band director with significant experience at some HBCs. The band director is who makes the band what it is. We seem to keep hiring shirley milk toast.

If we ever play SU again, do something similar and put their band in the school board parking lot over by Toby Field. They can dance and prance on the rugby field all game long
