    One of the talking heads made a mention of how only the college game has zero preseason and alluded to how it should surprise no one that early season games can be öööö shows.

    Shocking no one other than his bosses.

    3 hours of two terrible teams tripping over each other's dicks.

    was that shot of Spurrier there after Miami ran out of downs very late in the game - and UF immediately threw into traffic and got intercepted?
    That was a dumb play call at that point in game.
    I remember the shot of it live.

    Yep. If they had switched a little quicker, might have read his lips. I hope we don’t do stupid crap like that.

    Meh. Bands marching around outside stadiums without well-known routes often causes issues. Throw in ghetto Miami fans and a choke slam or two is not surprising.

    When I was in school the Maryland band decided to march in formation into Bobby Dodd Stadium. Tech fans were not pleased with their route and several collisions ensued. I think Tech ended up apologizing.

    The game was in Orlando so the Miami fans really have no excuse

    That likely was the cause of the issue. An unfamiliar environment increases stress and probably led to either the Miami fans ending up where they shouldn’t be or the Florida band attempting to march somewhere that interferes with the crowd.

    I’m not defending physically assaulting the band though. Miami fans are of course trash.

    It’s just not very surprising given Miami fans and how some bands can act.

    There was also the time we almost dropped goalposts on Auburn's band.

    I believe it was a post game march through fraternity row that caused the trouble.
