    Default Congrats to Pep Band at UNT

    The UNT fans had a lot to say about our Pep Band last night. Here is an example....

    I have always wondered why our band always sounds so muffled and unenthusiastic. The Sound of the South showed the Green Brigade up last night, plain and simple. The were louder, more excited, into "the game", and just sounded better. They had fun...

    The pep band sounded good on the radio! I would have hated to take the full Sound of the South over there or they'd be ready to fire their band director. One person on their board suggested that we were miked. To that I say thank you. We'll take that as a compliment.
    We are TROJANS one and ALL.

    They keep saying we play the same 5 songs over and over again. So did their band. You can't play 1 and 2 minute songs between plays, it's impossible. The songs I think their referring to are our "stand shorties". Every college band has them and they use them just like we do.

    Was at the game Saturday night and the pep band sounded great! They were loud, proud and full of enthusiasm.

    Nice job SOTS!

    It would stink to be in a college band that had to use microphones to be heard in a stadium...

    What are microphones for in the stands in marching band? to tell the fans what the next cheer is? for the band to hear the drum major call the next cheer?

    Mics are for lazy bands!

    Well maybe if their band would actually travel to TROY once in a while we could have nice things to say about them.....I cant remember the last time a visitor band has ever came to TROY for a game.

    I've been here since Spring 08 and the only bands that have come in the last three years have been Alcorn St, UAB, and MTSU.

    I wish they would bring their band to TROY! I find it funny that they're bashing us all over their board, but none of them really have the marbles, quoting Major League II, to come over and say some of this on our boards.
