    Favorite College Marching Band

    Ok, since college football is being talked about, another important part of college football is the marching bands, of course. So, what is your favorite marching band and fight songs???

    I am a diehard Texas Longhorn fan and I love their band and hearing the EYES OF TEXAS and TEXAS FIGHT played, but outside of Texas, I absolutely love the University of Wisconsin Badger band. Their tradition of running onto the field, during pregame, is a sight to behold and their marching style too. I also like listening to "On, Wisconsin". When I was in high school band, we actually played that as our fight song back in the 70's.

    Stanford band gets my vote for (lack of) style.



    As for a "good" band...probably Texas A&M.


    Favorite song...Rocky Top.

    Oh gawd I hate what passes for a band at Stanford.

    Who's my favorite? As if there was any question!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    And may I add...it passes quite nicely.



    Where were we...I think it was Stanford/UCLA AT UCLA, and the band dropped their drawers in the middle of the field. Yeah, they got in trouble.

    Yeah, SC's band got in trouble for a butt-slapping move in (I think a Bowl game?) a game versus a team from Utah. And uh... it was broadcast on TV. They don't seem to show us much on tv since then, hehehe.

    Stanford's band still sucks.

    Stanford's what? Band? You call that a band?

    Of course, I have to say that because I'm a Cal band fan. Dated their drum major while in college. I marched for CSULB back in the day when they had football.
    A signature should go here.

    Stanford's band is not worthy, in my book, to perform at any football game or parade. They are absolutley worthless as a marching band.

    Thats the joy of the Stanford band, they just dont care which is kinda funny to me.

    But of course the best band in the world is the Trojan Marching Band! DUH!

    Ohio States is pretty good too.

    Re: Favorite College Marching Band

    I'm borderline biased, but I would have to go with the Minnesota marching band.

    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.
