of the spectacular-ness. 

Trucker Steve

Great man, great fan, and keeps the band running. 

12/29/2014 - 4:44pm Basically a better version of

Basically a better version of Serial, now with more Harbaugh. As it should be. 

12/29/2014 - 4:33pm Why not

And, besides, our beloved Carl Grapenine (via fermiami) is way ahead of ya. On his Facebook at least. 

HABEMUS COACHEM HARBAUGHM!

I was involved with the band for all the years between that game and today, less one year. The band parts were great. But, yes, we can gloss over those games...

I've been burned too many times to believe... But those sweet, sweet Muppets are coming...

I totally missed all these. Thanks, Eric. :)

... This is a nice shot from the guys at MMBPhotoVideo (vid crew for the marching band).

Texas is such an odd place.

06/07/2011 - 7:28pm look how far he's come...

...now he knows how to say tOSU instead of whatever mangled garbage came out of his mouth when he committed.

 

Also, the ESPN article states he  may be interested in the Canadian Football League for next season due to the lockout shenanigans. I'm sure plenty of people are, but I'm still trying to stop laughing. Someone please photoshop a South Park Canadian Terrelle... cars optional.

06/07/2011 - 7:23pm I can play the legacy card too

Just to be antagonistic, I'm a six generation legacy here. I'm also in the band, bleed maize and blue, [insert Michigan cliche' here], yadda yadda. 

I can agree with some of your points, and by that I mean one.  'RAWK'. GOOD GRAVY. DOWN WITH CANNED MUSIC. Seriously, I didn't go to Penn State.  Ugh.

Howeveer, I'm going to call you out on being hesitant towards change. Yes, there will be a band, there will be a rousing chorus of The Victors (or 3948713), there will be block Ms abound, and there will be people in the club boxes. 

You can throw in as many pictures as you'd like (including the one of ProTouch uniforms of that school down south, yuck) but this too shall pass. I don't remember too many people griping about The Big Chill, another situation that called for novelty jerseys and piped-in canned music. It's an event. 

I, for one,  am pretty excited to get some national coverage...

"Mom, that's me! In the hat! With the blue and yellow thing on top! Yeah!"

...and I'm sure we'll all enjoy. Now calm the h*** down.

 

 

Edit:

Clarification - NO ONE, I guarantee you, NO ONE in the band or those involved with the program has ever voted for, appreciated, or condoned that damn canned rock music in the stadium. I mean, if they did, I'd kick their butt. I don't always put words in other people's mouths, but when I do, I guess... I do. I'm not sure of whose executive decision that was, but we work with the conditions we have.  Seriously! We can play "Don't Stop Believin'" too. Ugh.

05/31/2011 - 4:25pm it's just called "Tattoo"...

...but gosh darn it you might be on to something. I'll pass on the suggestion.

Although that song makes my ears bleed.

Pryor's from Jeannette, PA (Wikipedia) which is 5-6 miles away from my hometown.

Looks good. I feel the GMC and the Nissan really complement the fading paint and gray skies.

 

Edit: fixed giant picture size. Rookie mistake.

05/30/2011 - 2:39pm Best puns i've heard so far:

Vest in peace.

Hasta la vesta, baby!

 

Thanks, Twitter. 

 

In celebration, I'm going to go tan on Elbel field, while staring at the Big House and thinking, "soon". Federal holidays, yeah!

05/24/2011 - 5:12pm Finally!

Wow! I could not be more excited for the new teams. I'm sure there will be a lot of student interest for the games, especially as the weather gets nice in the spring!

I'm very curious about the venue, though. Those of us in the marching band caught wind of potential plans on Elbel, but (as you say) that apparently fell through. With a lacrosse field in the middle of that grass, I feel like some very important flag football real estate would disappear. Maybe it's a good thing they're relocating, then. In any event, congrats on moving up from Oosterbaan!

Go blue? Go blue.
