    No more band, please!

    I think it is time for the band to go bye-bye at basketball games. They don't add anything that the sound system can't do better. In fact, the speakers pump in something and then the band chirps in and kills the enthusiasm.

    And they play the fight song so much that people don't even stand for it every time. I went to the ISU-KU game at Phog and they played their fight song TWICE. We play it 6-8 times a game.

    Bands were important before sound systems. Just an antique now.

    ummm okay. Maybe when the opposing team shoots free throws our bands horns can make some noise will that make it better? Why so much hate for the band?

    Re: No more band, please!

    Wow i don't get why you would feel the need to post this at this time. Sidenote, the band usually only plays when there is little momentum or crowd energy so i would disagree that it takes away from the game experience in any way. Only adds to it imo

    I know I will get blasted for agreeing with you, but it's just how I feel. The best moments today were when KU called timeouts and they when straight to the speakers. Sadly most of our fan base consists of "Old Fogies"

    The band plays the fight song literally 90 times a game. Reminds me of this...

    Some times are required,i know but the amount of Fights has definitely taken an uptick this year. If thats from somewhere else ok, but i figured it had to do with the new director.

    (For instance, Is it the director or someone in the AD calling for beer barrel fights... that wasnt played every game not long ago)

    I like the band, it's good to mix old and new. Wouldn't be the same without the band.
