    Any group of 300+ college kids is going to have some questionable decision making, but that is above and beyond.

    Re: tOSU Marching band...holy crap

    I get that it's pretty descriptive subject matter, but is this much of a surprise? I mean, they're college kids. If I had a nickel for every person with a dirty nickname that I knew when i was in college... I wasn't in the band, but I had lots of friends that were, both at UNI and ISU. This seems right in line.

    Yeah that's a bit much.

    We had some songs with choice words in them in the ISUCF'V'MB, but nothing ridiculously offensive. Nicknames weren't explicitly demeaning either.

    I dont think any of it is that bad. It just sounds like a bunch of horny nerds doing nerdy sexual things.

    Did you read the actual report? Like cyhiphopp said, it's not like none of these things ever happened at ISU, but there are definitely things that are way over the top documented there.

    I also like the part where they completely gloss over that a staff member was in a relationship with a band member.

    Holy crap? I thought that was the Notre Dame marching band? *rimshot*

    Should I feel guilty for laughing at probably 80% of these nicknames?

    Admittedly, I just read the article and skimmed the report. What's the worse stuff?

    Hahaha. I thought it was funny. Bunch of kids having fun is what it is. So they come up with stupid nicknames and so on. They are not hurting anyone. Just having fun.

    Re: tOSU Marching band...holy crap

    I understand that in any group of college aged kids there are going to be isolate events like these happening, but if I understand the report correctly this was going on throughout the whole band. I laughed pretty hard at the "test" they gave rookies.

    Re: tOSU Marching band...holy crap

    I did however forget the part where it's 2014 and people need to be offended or outraged at something. Last night on Inside Addition, the first three stories started out "People are outraged". Really because I don't really know anyone outraged right now.
