Yes. The guy on our board who answered that question has a daughter who is a member of the Shakerettes, the band’s dance team. Our kids are taking finals this week but she surfaced to tell him they are going to the bowl. Details will inevitably follow. It is good news that the band got the notice they are going while it’s  members are still on campus this week. It might allow us to increase band member participation before everyone scatters next week. .

I looked at a YouTube pregame performance. You do have a very large, high-quality band. I’m not sure what percentage of our 270 piece band will be available to travel to Texas during the holiday break and on relatively short notice but we’ll no doubt bring a contingent worthy of a bowl game appearance. Should be fun! 

The Green Brigade is one of, if not the best, college band in the nation. The quality doesn't just come from the size of the band, over 400, but from the musical accomplishment of its participants. North Texas has a large and renowned music school and many of those exceptional students are in our band.

I have seen most of the Big 10, Big 12, and SEC school bands and nobody comes close musically, although I do love some of the Ohio St comedy routines and the SEC baton twirler performances.

Glad you all are bringing your band and hope you all have a great time in Frisco.  Don't hesitate to reach out should you need any information on places to go, eat, stay, etc...  There are a number of members on here that live in that area.

Thanks! I’ll let our folks know. I’m told we have about 2,000 Miami University alumni in the Metroplex. Hopefully a sizable contingent will turn out to bowl events and the game.

I only know one Miami alum personally. Invited him to the game and he passed. So here’s to 1,999!

Wouldn’t they have 4 in and 1,995 available?

We have a family of four.  She is an alum. There are 2000 alums available minus one. So we have 1999 available plus her 3 additional family members. Thus the known available local attendance possibility is now 2002.
