    I'm indifferent. I wish they would make a point of having them at every nearby game (Carolina schools + UVA + FedEx + Twerps) because those are the ones where we will have lots of fans there to enjoy them. (Yes, I'm aware Clemson isn't much further than College Park, but for the NOVA, Richmond, 757 population centers, Maryland is a game that a lot of us attend.)

    The @UNC game is twice in recent memory that something has happened at the last minute causing our band to not travel - it also happened @Duke (maybe 2009?). If I recall correctly, the Duke excuse was that they couldn't find a bus. Weaver wasn't specific with an excuse for UNC. But whatever it is, unless it involves a plague quarantining a large portion of the band or something similarly bizarre, the excuses get old.

    Personally, I think the band should be at every road game. How often do you see an SEC game that doesn't have two bands? But if we're going to pick and choose, I'd rather we pick and choose the games that our fans travel to.

    would rather the HTs be sent. The "real" band.

    What excites me, and makes me happy is all three sides of the team playing well. Kinda like Qtrs 2,3, &4 last week.

    that said, i'm glad they're going and i hope they have a great time (and maybe bring us some luck!)

    The "real boring" band, maybe. Go MVs!

    I am still upset about that- beginning of the spoiled/complacency years...

    Sorry man. Us MVs take too much abuse, but I shouldn't have taken it out on the HTs.
