Title: Why are there so many obese band members now?
Post by: Bison 4 Life on October 03, 2019, 10:21:36 AM
I thought band camp was used to weed out the overweight members or at leasr sweat off the weight. I saw a video of TSU band and the entire clarinet section looked like tuba players from years ago.

Bison, stop focusing on the tuba players and the flag girls. They have always been big. I understand the mechanic behind a big tuba player, but it is beyond me why a flag girl has to weigh 250 pounds.  :shrug:

Millennials are fast food junk food consumers and lack any real exercise because of being consumed with their mobile, gaming, and online content devices.

The way I see it at least these young people are doing something and moving.  I applaud their commitment and I promise you they are dropping a few pounds over the course of the season.

I fully support the band members/ students who put in many hours to perfect their craft .The aristocrat of bands is an historic unit without question.They are at the heart of HBCU football experience

Just my take. Start at the 1:00 mark and see what I mean.

 >:(  I'm mad for the tuba players with those generic-a$$ uniforms on with NOTHING on the front-WTF?

And at least their flag corps have on 'flattering' uniforms cause I have seen some that make me just go WHY????

But I digress....
