Re: band not allowed to play when either team is on offense?
I'm actually curious where you got that one. According to NCAA rules (which we follow) we should not be playing while the ball is in play period. That being said, Texas has a long tradition of only playing when your team is on defense. Very rarely have I heard of the rule being enforced. One friend of mine did get a penalty for their team early in the season, and another had both bands shut down one year.
Generally speaking when this rule has been enforced the audience is not happy about it... (And it's not usually the bands that take the heat!)
