    Take a close look at the second shot in this video. No excuse for that type of apparel.

    That honestly pisses me off probably more than it should.... why would a person think that is okay in any way shape or form?

    Knowing the band there will be plenty of self-policing and mocking to take care of that behavior in short order.

    I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. It very well could be he was having some anal leakage issues that day and didn't want to ruin a good pair of shorts.

    I certainly hope that this joker had to run wind sprints for this tomfoolery.

    One wind sprint would probably kill him.

    Re: Band members

    I used to be in the ISU jazz ensemble. Bothered me too. Can you imagine what would happen if Sam Richardson showed up in a promo video wearing hawk shorts? Or even Univ of Florida shorts? Wouldn't happen. I emailed the band director and suggested he offer some advice to the members of our fantastic (yes fantastic!) band.

    Re: Band members

    Looking at the video, I think it was someone in the drumline. Any of the drummers on the board here? You need to get your people in line! That crap would never have flown in my section back in my VMB days.

    I think they should throw him in a cage with Lattimer.

    Re: Band members

    Good lord! When I was trombone section leader, if I saw that I'd demand the kid go turn his shorts inside out for the day. Believe me- back in the day the band put a lot of effort into brainwashing everyone into HATING "the ducks." Still hasn't worn off for me...




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Serious question:

    If you were a big Hawk fan, why would you even want to be in the ISU band? I don't get it.

    I don't think they are big Hawk fans. I think they just like to be dicks.

    I had a guy in my section one year who transferred from EIU for like textile design or something along those lines. Was a big hawk fan and had marched there too. Came to ISU because we had by far the better program. He marched because some people are that much of band geeks that they really aren't there for anything to do with the athletics (That's a very very small percentage though, the majority of the band members are the most loyal fanatical type fans you'll meet). That guy enjoyed his experience so little that he only made it a year before he dropped.

    But either way you can bet your *** that anyone who shows up in hawk gear gets chastised all day.
