My wife and I just talked again about how much we disrespect the Stanford band. Did others have that conversation?

Was it just me or was most of the time the band members were playing different pieces? I couldn't tell if it was how it was coming across on my feed or if they intended to be doing it. I didn't watch the whole show, but this was going on when they spelled out "funny".

I am not saying the Stanford band is bad, but they make Nick Saben seem warm and fuzzy.

Bands in general are crap. They existed before speakers. A few are relative due to crap like the Stanford band pulls.

I prefer to watch USC make fun of Stanford's band:

that was freakin HILARIOUS!!!
but more of an amalgamation parody of Stanford band and the fightin texas GAGGIE band........all rolled into one!

that is the kind of halftime show that people respond to........bands having fun, entertaining, and still playing with quality sound.......basically having fun so they perform better!

I was talking with my high school band director today and we were talking about Stanford performance in both the Parade and their game performance. He says 90% of the music education industry despises Stanford's band.
