Stanford’s band banned from Big Game


Stanford’s non-traditional marching band has never shied away from going against the grain and ruffling feathers with their opponents. Because of their non-sense act, they will not be allowed to attend The Big Game this weekend at California.

A report from NBC Bay Area says the ongoing suspension from attending road games will remain in effect this weekend because the organization has not taken the appropriate measures to satisfy the problems outlined by the university to deserve making the trip. The band was issued a travel ban in March 2015 for “violations from complaints by band members for sexually explicit and offensive acts, hazing and violations of alcohol and controlled substances.”

And you thought the awful halftime shows were the worst part about the Stanford band.

The Stanford band is quite an acquired taste, but the less of the band that is shown off in public, the better. The band will still support the Cardinal though. NBC Bay area reports the band is turning over transportation money to pay for five busloads of students to make the trip to Berkley for the game against Cal.
