Is there any more news on this story? It looks like Chris Nichter is still listed as the Director of the Bearcat Bands, but I haven't heard anything about his reinstatement.

Not "Marching Band" related, but I was struck by how...crappy...the Shocker Pep band sounded as I watched the BB game yesterday. As a High School "Band Geek," the bands are a key part of what I love about Collegiate athletics. Without the bands, you have a "pro game" experience...both in Football and Basketball. So, I'm really quite interested to know what the heck is happening with the bands and hoping that Dr. Nichter is given the opportunity to make the bands the best possible.

(And yeah, I think the band has come a long way in the right direction since Dr. Frenz's retirement.)

You mean "Dr. Terren L. Frenz" our retired acolyte of John Phillips Sousa?

I thought Dr. Terren L. Frenz did a very nice job considering the lack of funding, lack of a major for aspiring band directors and even lack of interest from both the university and the athletic department for many years. It was amazing to me how much of the operation of the band was funded by the members of the band itself, down to the fitting and repairing of the uniforms and of members providing their own instruments.

But yes, it was time for him to retire. The school needs to do better by the band, and then the band needs to do better in return.

Does he rank above or below Dr Jill on the Doctors list?

In an academic setting calling oneself Doctor seems acceptable. Outside of academia other than a medical Doctor calling oneself DR. seems pompous.
