Alma Mater after football games?

While I was in Baton Rouge for the women's basketball tournament, I missed the Blue Band annual banquet. Like always, the President, the Head Basketball and Football coaches were invited. However, unlike most years, Bill O'Brien attended the event this year. According to friends of mine who were there, O'Brien re-committed himself and the football program to the Blue Band and the traditions that this University has instilled over the last 157 years. Words like "integral" and "tradition," as I've been told, rang through the speech he gave to my fellow Blue Banders.

While he spoke, he introduced the idea of singing the Alma Mater after the football game. To me, I was beyond ecstatic when I heard about the idea. Even though it is similar to that of what that team in Columbus does, to me, it would be really good for everyone to band together (no pun intended) and sing it. Now, as Onward State pointed out,here, there are some logistical things to it, namely, what to do with the post-game concert we give.

Not quite BoB and McGloin, but it gets the point.

I really think this has the potential to bring the University closer together with the football program and the Blue Band... Just another sign that this is a new regime.
