Season record for visiting bands?

Submitted by Undefeated dre… on October 26th, 2009 at 4:38 PM

In light of last weekend's game and the NCAA's notice of inquiry, I thought we should delve into a truly hot topic. Does 2009 set the record for most visiting bands in the Big House?

We'll have:

Western Michigan
Notre Dame
Eastern Michigan
Delaware State
Penn State
Ohio State

Does anybody know if we've had 6 (or more) visiting marching bands in one year?

Last I heard, Purdue was coming also. So if you count the Alumni Band at Homecoming, it's eight home games=eight bands. And yes, that sets the indoor and outdoor record for visiting bands.

I'd bet it is some kind of record. What other stadium/program/venue is circle-you-on-the-schedule important, plus has the space, plus has had 8 home games?

Someone should get Guinness on this, while they're not trying to figure out the most live rattlesnakes held in your mouth at the same time.

EDIT: OK so maybe that joke sucked. I couldn't find a clip of the puppy that set the official world record popping 100 balloons in 57 seconds. Bad substitute.

It's as close to a guarantee you can get that Guinness has been involved in every game this year. Just ask any student -- especially those returning the bottles to the grocery store on Sunday.
