    My alma mater! That was awesome, don't think I've ever heard a marching band play the Tetris theme.

    Kickass game yesterday too (unless you're a Cornhusker). Too bad they went and got themselves b& from a bowl game this year.

    The UM/Bowser flag bit made me laugh. Definitely will share, thanks.

    bowl ban is total horseshit. NCAA is fucking cruel.

    One of the best halftime shows I've seen! Seeing TBDBITL in person is so much more awesome!

    That was pretty amazing, even moreso as a Bucks fan. =)

    I despise marching bands with a passion, but that was pretty impressive.

    That was incredible.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    My former University did a Halo tribute back in '05 and then did Super Mario Brothers in '07 for their marching band show. It was quite impressive. In fact, the Band director is writing his DMA on the effects of video games on education and how to improve them.

    The music was good but the show itself was... passable. The music almost makes up for the visuals but as a former marching band member a lot of those lines made me cringe.

    Wow, that was amazing.
