Several readers brought this issue to our attention from last night’s game versus Northern Illinois. As the NIU team ran onto the field for the first time, the marching band was clearing the field. Rather than wait for a few moments to make their entrance, they simply barreled out onto the field taking out several unsuspecting musicians in the process.
Pretty weak move by NIU. Admittedly, the band appeared to slow NIU down more than the Rocket defense… but all kidding aside, this is unacceptable behavior. Show a little class, NIU.
