Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - wmu2012 - 09-17-2011 06:22 PM

More big games at Waldo students will show up look at the last 2 weekends. People were criticizing the crowd last week it wasn't the students that were the problem. Left early in a blowout in the rain which most people did but were there when it was close and affected Nicholls play. Today it was packed and the students stayed until basically the end a few left the last 5 minutes but most stayed until the very end.

Too bad WMU is retarded and puts the band right in the middle and gives them the best seats in the house. Otherwise we might have had even a larger student section. Almost every other school puts the band in the end zone or corner. Why don't we? Never understood that. If not students, sell those seats to paying customers.

Oh God, not the BMB thing again this week! 03-banghead

I love the BMB right where it is. Those band members have fantastic spirit, and the students interact really well with the band. Plus, it keeps the middle of that section full, so it looks better when TV cameras are panning the stands.

I disagree. They do the same thing they used to when I sat over there.....drown out student chants/excitement/etc with their drivel. Know your role and play the fight song and a few others from time to time, but you are not the show.

We should really take a look at what some other schools have done in recent years with blasting loud music over the speakers. If you watch, that gets/keeps the fans much more into games. Then they allow the band to play when appropriate, but not all the time. We play ZERO music over the speakers unless it's in a video on the scoreboard.

I'm with Flash, band should be in the endzone. When I bring a guest, if they know anything about college football they marvel at the location of our band. Plus, they do play over the students cheers and act like it's their house when the students try to get anything going.

I agree, the band needs to be in the end zone. WMU is giving the best seats in the house to the band while losing out on added attendance!

This sight makes me a very proud alum... Go Broncos!

I agree, move the band to the endzone, give them a little less air time, put in a booming sound system, get a new screen (bigger, clearer), and rock the place with a little "Jump Around!!!!"






RE: Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - Charm City Bronco - 09-18-2011 10:59 PM

I'll die a happy man if I never hear Jump Around again.


RE: Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - Charm City Bronco - 09-18-2011 10:59 PM

And no, the band shouldn't be located at the 50.


RE: Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - Flashboski - 09-19-2011 06:24 AM

^^^What Dip said

JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP


RE: Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - BaldingBroncoFan - 09-19-2011 09:32 AM

They should do the "Jump Around" thing right before half time when the band is down on the field. They play it at basketball games so it shouldn't be unfamiliar to the sound people. Can you imagine what that would have looked like had they played that on Saturday?


RE: Student Section has been packed for the first 2 games - DesertBronco - 09-19-2011 10:14 AM

Please no....get your own gig.

Maybe bring "let the bodies hit the floor" by Drowing Pool back out of mothballs... I want opponents to fear waldo again. I want it to be a place of pain and tears for the opposing teams. maybe even display this on the screen... oh yeah....

This is what I'm talking about, let's do something original and unique to us, too much "Jump Around", now middle aged humps are doing it, not cool. In fact, it's awkward.
