No thanks. The Eyes are here to stay. Why is that so hard for some on here to understand. The higher ups don’t care what the players and current students think. The decision has been made. Save yourself a heartbeat and move on.

Saw a report that there is a banner that says “Stand With Sam” flying over stadium today.

...and some among this thread wept

Yeet them into the sun, followed by the scholarships of the band members stirring this up and sitting out of the game.  The football team found unity this week, maybe the rest can pick up a book and learn about The Eyes, rather than some SJW's 'hot take' to cancel tradition.

It was good the team stayed. Stop making everything political.

Please stop... this is putting a new saddle on a (hopefully)dead horse. The players were all there saluting the fans. Lets not investigate who had their horns up, who was standing , who was smiling or who was farting.

The team won. Happy

The team supported the fans with the eyes. Happy

we still have Tom . Sad 

Let's enjoy the win and smile. We can prepare our anus for the ass raping that is going to happen next week on Sunday 

Maybe they should prepare their anus for the ass raping next week (James Brown voice)

The players are trying to put this behind them and the fans should as well.

Why?  What the fuck is wrong with taking a knee?? Why are you so upset over something so trivial. 
 

we keep our song. The players are out for it showing respect to the fans.   Everyone should be happy. This is best case scenario. 

Stand the fuck up for your school!!   This is not real hard!!!

I went to the game today.  

The fans were cheering during the singing of the Eyes Of Texas before the game.  I didn't see any fans sitting.  Clearly, the vast majority of fans attending today have NO problems with the song.

The Willie Nelson music videos at halftime was awesome - never seen those before.

They were also rocking to some classic rock during some of the the timeouts - IMHO better than listening to the band playing the same songs over and over.   I didn't miss the band at all.

Can we play this at games?

I’d be ok with just getting rid of the band entirely. Maybe revisit the issue five or ten years down the road. Used canned music instead. 

You guys have one of the biggest and best alumni bands in the country.   I'll bet they have no problem playing "Eyes" and "Texas Fight."   Just get them to augment the ones who want to stay and play.
