As many are aware, The Team took the field yesterday to a (previously unknown) local heavy metal band, Pop Evil. Without getting too into the weeds of "are they a good band or not" (one could always check and learn that they play at awesome venues like "O'Shea's Irish Pub"), I'm curious as to thoughts on Dave Brandon's decision to replace the Michigan Marching Band with Pop Evil for the team's entrance.
Now, I'm no historian (I know we have some here) but I assume The Victors has been played for the team's entrance for ages. I imagine this is the first time the team has touched the banner to a song written, when...last week? If Michigan State can rise up to avoid a logo re-vamp, Michigan should be able to rise up to avoid a MMB replacement. There are certain Michigan traditions that shouldn't be tossed away. "The Victors" as the entry song is one such tradition. I realize that on TV, it sounded as if The Victors was playing, but that was after the team had entered.
Am I alone is finding this change to be such an offense? Thoughts of the people...?
