The Texas Longhorns marching band is done for the year, it seems.
The Austin American-Statesman reports that band members are refusing to play the final two home games this season due to an internal dispute over playing “The Eyes of Texas.”
“There has been no change of status, and the university’s alma mater will continue to be played from loudspeakers at the game, not by the band,” Doug Dempster, dean of the College of Fine Arts, said in a statement, per the Statesman’s report. “In-person instruction concludes on Nov. 25, after which UT students are expected to be off campus.
