    I could draw you a picture, but it would inevitably end up on Bigfoot Hunters as proof positive that Bigfoot exists in South Louisiana.

    No one litters in the student section and gets away with it.

    Ritter was a unique trumpet player, that's for sure. I took private trumpet lessons from Will Green and Marc Schomerus (both when they were at UL and I was in grade school and high school). Will is one outstanding trumpet player. Very clean and pure player. Ritter was ahead of me at Acadiana (no overlap). But, in the greatest days I've witnessed of PoA... Ritter was the greatest volume and range (screecher) of all time... in the UL band. That dude could put a hurt on a trumpet. He loved to carry over a high note on every single tune... right or wrong.

    You need to coordinate with whoever the knucklehead is in the press box that finds a need to play rap music during the game and often at the same time as the band is playing. I sure hope that is corrected this year.

    Ritter was playing a screaching solo to the student section in the late 70's. Someone was blowing a whistle in the crowd. Ritter spotted the guy with the whistle and stopped his solo, pointed the guy out, and was about ready to go up into the stands and flatten him. Dude had balls ........

    He'd clear out the section and tear that guy a new whistle hole. No one would want to be on the wrong side of Ritter in those days.

    The band brought energy from the beginning of the game!!!!! They came out of tunnel with a hop in their step. They even kept playing well into the 4th qtr when all the fair weather fans left and the atmosphere would normally be dead. I was impressed.


    Major props to the band. Finally!!!

    Besides my normal gripe of the fight song being wrong

    I wish that after the game they would just jam for a little while the players finished their walk around the stadium!!!

    C'mon Boomer! Again, they're NOT playing it WRONG, you just hear ALL the parts. Our trumpet section in the 70's was SO dominate that all you heard was melody!
    That being said, Kudos to Dr. Melley and the PoA for an AWESOME debut night!! VERY similar to Jim Goodman taking over the band in 1971. The band now has attitude because HE has attitude!! I'm a VERY proud alum this morning!!

    I'm not a band expert so ill limits comment to: it was much better than the past few years. I really liked the way they came out to start the game. Halftime show was improved too. Congrats to all involved.

    I think the "give him cornbread" on our 2nd or 3rd downs is FANTASTIC
