My daughter and I were on the front row of standing spectators and we were right in the middle and the sound was unbelieveable! Makes you appreciate the band! Also, they've changed up some of their marching cadences with the drums. Very cool.

You guys are doing a far better job, but I do miss Krypton, Cocky's 2001 in the pregame, and the trumpet Go Cocks cheer.

Am I crazy by thinking "Go Carolina" is a tad bit slower?
I'm not in the band, just a music major with lots of friends in the band. It wouldn't surprise me if Phillips slowed the tempo on Go Carolina some, and I think there might be times that they make a point of playing it very slow, but I might just be imagining things.

I was thinking more about how it sounds like Ba dum ba dum-dum -dum *flaisfoaisjdaskj* BUM BUM....I'll assume you know the cheer well enough to know what I'm talking about.

The band is plenty louder than it was two years ago and getting louder every year. Last year tennessee's fans got on their boards after the game to complain that our band covered theirs up the entire game.

Not true. You haven't paid attention to the increased volume level for the past two years.

We had practiced that to make sure that it sounded clearer than it had been, but we still never hit the chord right. This was McKeithen's last year, I'm guessing she just hasn't brought it back much, if at all.

Also, Troy has one of the best bands in the country. Comparing our rebuilding to their sustained awesomeness is silly.

Here is a question:

Why is the "voice" of the band such a d-bag on the mic?

He is TERRIBLE!


(I love that this is my biggest complaint about the band. Everything else is much improved.)

By no means am I complaining b/c I know those kids work very hard at what they are doing. So please do not take it that way.
I hated it when the band was in the endzone. They seemed much quieter. Maybe it's just me, though.

Bands doing a great job this year!

Here's an idea, love the way the bass drums are lined up in the stands, make it so some of them spell out "Cocks"

They got rid of the hot dogs and started giving them a half a firehouse sub. There were several instances of kids getting hotdogs with moldy buns and when Ray saw the pictures he stepped up to the plate to fix the problem. This is what I was told by a friend that's in the marching band after the game this past Saturday.

That's unfortunate. The soggy weiners were an integral part of my marching band experience.
