31. We don't play Miley Cyrus.

Well, there is this.
 
no college credit??? Really??....it was worth one when I was there. Heck, one semester I had Wind Ensemble/Orchestra/Pep Band/Jazz Orch II/Brass Ensemble all for one credit each plus a 3 credit private instruction requirement....it really helped my GPA.
 
I have a rebuttle for most of these, but:

"11. We don't turn anyone away."

You should. Some people suck, that's just a fact.

"16. Called "The Best Pep Band in the World" at the Puerto Rico Tip Off Tournament."

All the pep bands in the world weren't at the Puerto Rico tournament. So really you were just the best band at the tournament, no the world.
 
"36. We use synthesizers."

"37. We have singers in our PEP BAND."

I'm sorry, but the GMU pep band is just gross...
 
Oh, if you're really the best at something, you don't need a list explaining why.
 
36: We the goomoos love playing "living on a prayer" when our team is losing.

Non band member rebuttle:
1) It gets hot in there with actual fans in the stands.
2) It's 2010, that was 2000then.
3) Over 5,000 real fans nightly
4) Matching jerseys? Must be a Music Dept mandate.
5) Affiliation too restricting. Why you can't play Miley Cyrus.
6) Sold out. Now get back to maintaining your corporate image.
7) Our director takes off his clothes.
8) Somebody fire our external arranging consultants.
9) Why you need sponsorship and booster. We carry our own instruments.
10) See #9
11) People have to want to join to turn them away.
12) Is this a basketball game or a pseudo symphony?
13) I'd be more impressed if a Music channel loved you.
14) I've yet to see them mingling with you in the stands.
15) Our director takes off his clothes.
16) Peurto Rico is a self governing unincorporated territory of the United States so it doesn't count.
17) Our director takes off his clothes.
18) That's some musical talent there.
19) This speaks volumes about the quality of GMU credits.
20) Our director takes off his clothes.
21) Brion's Grille cited for 5 critical health violations 10/2009. Enjoy your banquet.

22) See #21
23) An Office!!! Wohoooooo!
24) I'm with you here. Not going to argue with a good tailgate.
25) Careful about playing with younger children, there are laws against that kind of stuff.
26) Hockey?? Are they still playing that sport?
27) We rock.
28) Our director takes off his clothes.
29) I'm sure you are impressing the many music critics who fill the basketball arena.
30) How many downloads have you gotten for that one?
31) You should play Miley Cyrus.
32) Bemidji State? What the heck state is that in? Quite an accolade there.
33) Our director takes his clothes off.
34) Okay then. Reassurance is good for all insecurities. I'm sure you are all cool. Really.
35) Were we talking about music or love here? Let me finish that quote for you. "Oooooooooh..half way there"
36) Our director takes his clothes off!!!!!!!!!!

Hope I didn't offend anybody but I'll be damned if I'm going to sit around while some second rate Pep band defiles our 6th man. This post is for you guys. Keep VCU loud. Our PEP band Rocks!!!!!

Well, there is this.

I thought the Party in the USA the band played recently was awesome. Loved it, myself!

Yeah, it wasn't bad at all. If nothing else it is cool to see Joey in the huddle dancing around and every one else starring at him with a WTF look on their faces.

I think they made it clear with the very first item on their list that they have a bit of an inferiority complex. We rolled into the CAA final with the Total Package and our own Doc Nix so we pretty much owned them from the start. Plus the girls in our band wear bikinis at the NCAA tournament. You can't have 5 "our director takes his clothes off" without at least 1 the girls take their clothes off too.
