The announcement comes after the school said in March that band members would no longer be required to play the song.
Wow, ok. Two bands...
You’re onto something.Simple solution: Let the Longhorn Band Play and perform all UT Songs at all football games and let the “University Band” perform at all pick up sand lot games BUT they are not eligible for the partial scholarship and they wear jeans and band shirts at those performances. No need to waste a uniform on those SJW.
This is excellent!!! I forgot to add that they should not have a University Director whose salary is paid for with tax payer dollars. They can simply draw up their own show maneuvers in the dirt like sand lot football games. You know, sort of like the Rice Mob. LOLYou’re onto something.
“The University Bank sponsored by Cardi B”! Let the SJWs go to their sponsors to pay for the non-burnt orange uni. No apparent affiliation with UT and CANNOT play any school songs. Freeze them out.
I guess the question in this day and age is, which band would have the most members? Unfortunately, it’s a valid questionThis is one of the dumbest proposals I’ve heard in a long time. It creates voluntary segregation. And, once segregated by choice, the woke band will continue to bitch about inadequate funding, or lack of inclusion, or something else. Even though they’re in the JV band by choice. The admin is kicking the can down the road hoping the issue goes away. A chronic disease - liberalism - doesn’t go away on its own. Points to a weak admin that doesn’t want to tackle the problem head on.
The second band is not happening!The announcement comes after the school said in March that band members would no longer be required to play the song.sports.yahoo.com

110% agreed but let's not kid ourselves, UT IS a woke university in a woke city. It's almost like asking Berkley to invite Trump as a guest speaker.The more UT caters to and appeases the Woke the more they will bitch.
And that's a "WHOLE LOTTA MONEY!"110% agreed but let's not kid ourselves, UT IS a woke university in a woke city. It's almost like asking Berkley to invite Trump as a guest speaker.
The only difference is a large portion of donated $$ here resides in the hands of non-woke Texans. Without the $$ leverage EOT would have already been scrapped.
To take it one step further, if the Longhorn band won’t play it, I think the crowd should cheer loudly for the visiting band, and turn their backs when TLB takes the field. Just planting seeds here.Amen. And let's add a fan based kazoo band! The fan based singing/kazoos, along with the piped in music would do the trick. Adios, UT band, if you don't want to be there.

Another option: everyone wears a paper sack over their heads when the LHB takes the field - similar to the Saints’ fans when the Saints were bad.Even better would be for those in attendance to stage a mass walkout when the LHB takes the field if they refuse to play TEOT!
As liberal as I am and with the racial beginnings that are undeniable I'm confident that this whole mess will work it itself out.
As liberal as I am I was talking with my son who's more liberal than me. We both agree that the origins need to be put in the closet and stay there. That was then this is now. I think its a good idea that the players stay on the field when the EoT is being played somebody suggested this and most of the players responded positively. We'd all like to see them throw up the Hookem but this is a good start.
But in the end the man who needs to lead the players on this issue is Sarkisian. Look last year was filled with dissension we all know that. But SS needs to take the team and unify them on this matter. One last thing they ARE going to play the EoT after the game if not by the band then by loudspeaker.
One last thing these kids DON'T hate their school. They very much want to be the ones to return TX to elite status. Want proof? It's a big reason why Bijan wanted to come here. Also the players had tears in their eyes singing TX fight after KSU game and the AB. That says a lot to me but nobody else on this board is impressed by this.
And we can do this without The Showband of the Southwest. It'll give people like Eitfl and the bmd something to do and away from the day to day affairs of the fb team which should make a lot of fans happy.
Ok I'm through now.
