The band signed a feature twirler from West Des Moines and it led the sports portion of the evening news, even before KU signing a drake transfer and tiger's accident investigation findings.
incredible

WTF? I hate this, a whole lot. The band sounded better in the new section and frankly the stadium looked better with the current setup.

This is all bad. The band getting moved means less tickets for the students, not that they've been using them anyway. I hope the mic the band up and distribute the sound using the new sound system. I'm very interested to see how they will now use the vacated band section they have been at since that corner got filled.

I guess the only news here is that backlight Sudler Award lettering on that section can come down now.

I like the notion of them being all up in the belly of the beast, but yeah, it sounded much better to the rest of the stadium to have them in their own little section. That section is gonna look extremely stupid now, by the way. But I guess once you've Sudler'd, you get to call the shots.

OMG. Well, if we needed any confirmation that Tracz was fighting Currie every step of the way on moving to the corner, there it is.

Good time to remember how Currie was an absolute sadist about domineering over Tracz on this.

Here's a recap of the interview. I remember it vividly.

Currie: Tell everyone about how awesome the new band section is and how much you love it!
Tracz: The band has always been a big part of
Currie: TELL THEM YOU LOVE BEING IN THE CORNER!!!

Piped in pride music would be awesome. What do think they will do with the old/new band spot?
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

i bet tracz could coach circles around Coach HamFace or whatever his name is klieman, why did we not even interview him for the job? 
you think he's sat on the sidelines for the last 40 years and learned nothing?

I would hope they turn it into another party deck. Maybe a GA section with beer?

I received an e-mail the other day stating that they were going to put in a 2nd area to consume alcohol inside the stadium. I couldn't figure out where that was going to go until I heard this news. I would bet that they're going to turn that corner into another beer garden type area. If they don't, then I have no idea why they're moving the band. I thought the band looked great in that corner, and the acoustics were much better there than when they were in the student section.

I thought the other beer spot was going to be in the south end zone. It does make sense to put it in the band section but that's seating for about 400 people so if they don't sell those as tickets we will have reduced capacity.

The band and the athletic department made it quite clear that they moved the band back because Tracz didn't want to be in the section created for the band and he asked Gene and Gene said yes. He was actually able to convince Gene that the band being in the student section actually effected the opponent and the game.

Well, I don't know what to say to that except if it is true, Gene probably needs to be shown the door.

If the stadium isn’t fully attended, it probably looks better to have the empties be in the corner where the band’s supposed to be rather than along the sidelines and as the backdrop for the main camera angle.

I like how Tracz talks like he's speaking on behalf of the entire band. Because the few people I've known in marching band and also everyone they hung out with in marching band absolutely did not give a eff about the football games.
