Okay, not totally a football fan, but I still wanted to put my two cents in.
AMY~ As you getting spit on by a vol fan a few years back in band.... I can say the same thing at the SEC championship a couple of years back U of Ark. VS UGA. We had so many people in band get pelted with sugar cubes when we marched in it was crazy. Then I guess they ran out right before halftime, because I personally got loogies spit on me 3 times. Never understood that. We are just the band. I dont make the the points, I just play the fightsong.
And I think of all the low class places I have been, I do have to say, LSU is the absolute worst. (sorry to lsu fans here!) We (the travel band of 44) had to be escorted out by 15 police officers fully armed. The literally formed a circle around us and made us stick together. Apparently one time a fan got ahold of a band member and roughed him up and stole his uniform top (I heard it was georgia but never was confirmed, it was just what the cop said.) so after that the police escorted us to the bathroom and concession stand, they also made a border around us while we played in the stands. I have so many stories about crazy lsu, like the time we played them in LR and they started yelling f-u DURING our alma mater.
Texas was bad too, but hey its texas, they dont like us anyway. I think its some sort of lunchmeat thing.
I am a poud ex-bandie, and I am not really one for the football team (good thing this year huh? :P ) but I always wish the band the best. I also did color guard in highschool, and twice in drum corps! Props to all the TCS Bandies! We are a special group.
