I did not make this headline up
UMass Band Director Passes Away
too many re-posts on the MGoBoard?
I feel shame at how hard this made me laugh. +1 to you good sir.
Repost in Peace.
Edit: I am waaaay too slow.
This is the first I've heard of it and am saddened. UMass's players, band, and his family are in my thoughts now. Tragic.
Welcome to the party. Bout time you showed up.
Man the UMass band has had a tough morning. I think their director has passed away at least 3 or 4 times today.
You can still save this thread. Edit the title to say Guest Book for UMass Band Director and post this link:
It's nice to read the tributes from his friends and former students.
Maybe we should do something similar to what Texas did with the University of Wyoming tragedy. Have a brief moment of silence and really give their band a good round of cheers when they are out there.
On the note of the moment of silence:
In England when dignitaries or other stars pass away, they've stopped doing the moment of silence because rubes have the chance to ruin the moment. Instead, they do a minute's applause.
I wish Michigan Stadium could bring this quite appropriate tribute to America, and honor this fine man in a similar way.
I like the applause...love the Brits.
Stop flipping out over re-posts on this. Lots of people only see what's along the side and the more cheers and less boos for the band the better.
