Full title:Texas forced the LSU band to sit in the nosebleed seats in the pettiest move of the college football weekend

Best quote: "There's a chance that LSU decides to put the slight behind them, but if I were a member of the Longhorns band heading into next season, I would remember to pack extra sunscreen for the trip to Louisiana."

Best Twitter comment: "Honestly, I think sticking the LSU band up in the nosebleed is more insulting than any upside down horns or blown up jerseys."

Interesting photos are another good reason to go to the article.

This happens every where. When I was in band, I can only think of one occurrence (Mizzou 2011) of it happening to me, but I think Texas did it to OSU the last time they visited (which wasn't normal). TCU has done it to opposing bands. At OSU, they've run into issues with seating for visiting bands (Missouri State, Grambling). The only factor I know of is if the visiting band is "late" in deciding if they'll attend the game. A lot of it is up to the AD and the visiting ticket block.

I think not sticking the visiting band and fans near the bench of their own team or at least on the same side down-low is rude. With that said I wish we could put OU's band in the parking lot.

To the visiting team and their fans, being close to the team and the band both is a thing. Hard to be excited for your team when you can't even see them on the sideline celebrating and be a part of that.

I'll have to check with my former OSU tuba player son on that. His time with the CMB predates the DKR expansion to the current capacity/configuration. That said, I can't recall him ever saying they were put in Outer Mongolia when visiting other stadiums.

I think we should seat the OU band in the indoor practice facility with a 10" tv for Bedlam and close all the doors.

LSU football coach Ed Orgeron confirmed Monday that the Tigers did not have air conditioning in the locker room Saturday for their game against Texas.
Orgeron said he called Louisiana Tech, Texas' Week 1 opponent, before the game and in anticipation had his team bring extra fans.
According to official stats, the game-time temperature was 98 degrees.

"First of all, I called Louisiana Tech, and they told us about it," Orgeron said Monday. "So we did some things in the dressing room that were better. It wasn't great, but it was better. At least we had air in there. They didn't have air. We had some blowers in there. I don't think that caused as much as going out there and having to play 93 plays on defense. I think that had a lot to do with it."

Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte said in a written statement that Orgeron's comments were the "first we've heard of any issues in that area" and that "we've confirmed that our air conditioning in the visiting locker room is in good working order."
"Our facilities staff did not receive any complaints from either Louisiana tech or LSU," Del Conte said in the statement.
An athletic official at Louisiana Tech was reached for comment and the university did not respond as of press time.

Ed Orgeron said #LSU didn't have air conditioning in the Texas visiting locker room. Talked to La Tech and heard about it. LSU brought some blowing fans. Didn't think it had anything to do with the cramps.

They'll do more IVs at halftime to prevent that from happening again.

Numerous LSU defensive players dealt with cramps and other injuries during the Tigers' win Saturday. By the end of the game, Longhorns fans could be heard booing injuries, believing the players were faking in an attempt to slow down Texas' play.
LSU players who missed at least part of the game because of injury: safety Grant Delpit (returned), defensive lineman Rashard Lawrence (didn't return), linebacker Michael Divinity (returned), defensive back Kristian Fulton (returned), defensive end Glen Logan (didn't return) and defensive lineman Tyler Shelvin (returned).

"Although it was hot, I thought — I think the humidity was like 23 percent," Orgeron said. "It wasn't like Louisiana. But our guys did cramp up in the second half. We talked about it as a staff that we need to get some IVs, more IVs at halftime. Didn't seem like nobody needed one at that time, but to prevent that, I think that more guys will get IVs at halftime, obviously with the doctor's approval."

The air conditioner works just fine. The thermostat though, that's a different story. It's stuck on 100.
