    Might help if you actually read the report. There were pages and pages of songs including a few about Iowa.


    Merry Christmas!
    I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

    Re: tOSU Marching band...holy crap

    The songs are just funny. I still have "our" (ISU band's) book of such songs for Iowa, Boise State, and a few other favorites. I still give them a chuckle to myself even nowadays, too, particularly when Iowa loses in a particularly Iowa fashion (like the Western Michigan game). Thing is, nothing in those was ever directed towards "one of our own" or any individuals save some opposing coaches and former coaches (who are public figures, middle aged adults, and millionaires who get it worse on talk radio every day anyways) and ADs.

    I never really understood the want of some (not all, but some) to want to make the marching band into a nerd fraternity while I was at ISU (six years, too, four undergrad and two grad) with the heavy partying and social hierarchy. It's about the practice field, the stands, and the Jack, not the other stuff. I guess TOSU took it far beyond even that kind of thing. The nickname and "double dare" stuff is just so unnecessary and so middle school. It's so full of great people, plenty of long friendships and even marriages come out of it, you get to play fun music and be outside, it's fun for its own sake (could care less if anybody in the crowd really liked it), and you get to embody the spirit of the university. Plus, free travel to basketball tournaments and bowl games with court/field-side seats, and I never paid for a ticket to any sporting events while I was at ISU--football, MBB, WBB, or volleyball. It was awesome in so many ways.


    "So let me get this straight: you want to fly on a magic carpet, to see the king of the potato people, and plead with him for your freedom... and you're telling me you're completely sane? I think that calls for two hours of W-O-O."

    Whole thing sounds like a typical day in the life of Cyrocksmypants as an 8th grader. No big whoops.

It went well beyond kids using a few dirty nicknames.

    I'll admit I scrolled through the others to find that


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Why go through the effort for a team you play once every six years or so...

    Now that stuff crosses the line. Besides the weird fake incest thing I didn't have a problem with anything in the OPs article.
