Longhorn Basketball Band dribbles to a I LI VLN I JHll LTJ Longhorn Basketball Band In 1989, UT students read constantly about proposals to " grade the Univer- sity " and even offered their own cri- tiques. The endeavor was a noble one, without a doubt, but oftentimes neg- ative or depressing. To the rescue came groups like the Longhorn Basketball Band . . . individuals who " graded the team " and averaged an A+. The band, through its exuberance and devotion, proved that school spirit was still important. Mike Parker, mu- sic/psychology senior, said, " Times have changed for the team. When only 2,000 people showed up for a game, the Longhorn Basketball Band was still there to show their support. We ' re still here today. " Prior to this band ' s formation in 1985, the Longhorn Marching Band sent volunteers to play at the Runnin ' Horns ' games. But since the new group evolved, positions in the Basketball Band have been coveted. " Some people support football just because it ' s the ' in ' thing. Longhorn Basketball Band members are here be- cause we love basketball, " Fran Kantor, prebusiness freshman, said. Other members agreed. " Spirit sets this group apart from other groups, " David Wheeler, economics senior, said. " You should see how the band mem- bers ' eyes light up when the team enters the court. Our people are here because they want to be. We ' re not rejects of the marching band. The loud, high, fast music we play brings enthusiasm into the arena, making us and the fans want to get into the game and the evening. " Wheeler added that the band " makes a difference in the game. " Parker said, " No one else yells ' Dang, you dumb! ' to the Aggies when they screw up. And no other group serenades George Mueller each time he enters the court with a rendition of George of the Jungle. " The Longhorn Basketball Band en- joyed a pat on the back and a word of thanks from the team after the 1989 season came to a close. Tom Penders, the men ' s varsity coach, expressed his gratitude to the band with a letter and an autographed basketball at the band ' s last banquet. " The most rewarding aspect of par- ticipating in the band was witnessing the advancement of the team and the band. The band began in 1985 as 39 people who could barely play, " Parker said. " It ' s so great being a part of the union between the band and the team. We ARE the home-court advantage! We ARE the Spirit of the Superdrum!
