Playing In the Band

Stanford is ready to unveil its $100 million stadium renovation Saturday against Navy, but not everybody is invited. The school's marching band has been banned from the game. In July, members allegedly vandalized an on-campus trailer that had served as the band's temporary home while it waited to move into a state-of-the-art $2.8 million facility. The damage, estimated at $50,000, led to the suspension. In addition, the Santa Clara County District Attorney is reportedly considering criminal charges against several band members. Now the Stanford band has a long list of infractions, including a suspension for urinating on the field. And in 1991, at Notre Dame, a band member dressed as a nun and conducted the band with a crucifix instead of a baton.

That school has so much money it makes me sick. Beautiful campus... Beautiful. But it's full of spoiled brats like those band members.
