This 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.

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.

You’re onto something.
“The University Band 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.

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. LOL

I guess the question in this day and age is, which band would have the most members? Unfortunately, it’s a valid question

Every incoming and current band member should be interviewed. The rules/expectations should be clearly laid out that every band member WILL play The Eyes of Texas! If you don't agree with this tradition, then the UT band is NOT the place for you. Make them sign an agreement. If at any point they refuse to play The Eyes, show them the door!

The only way this makes sense to me is if this second bans is basically a competition marching band, akin to drum corps that compete in DCI contests.

The more UT caters to and appeases the Woke the more they will bitch.
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.

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.
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.

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.

The history of the university cannot be undone. Texas was a slave state. Fact. UT was founded and funded by ex confederates and segregation and Jim Crowe were a part of that for many years. Fact.

The Eyes of Texas happened to come along during this time and so must be framed in that context. News flash for the naive, but The University of Texas at Austin did not allow Black students until the 1950s. It's not the Eyes people have a problem with, it's the history of the whole school but they don't know what to do about it so they attack the song.

Move on people. Move on. Otherwise you'll be trying to cancel everything and be miserable about everything. The history of the human race, white, black, brown, yellow and every shade between is tainted. You have to get over it. And by the way all you snowflakes, your sh*t stinks too.
