It sounds like later today there will be some type of statement regarding the USC drum major planting his sword in the field at the Rose Bowl. From what I’m hearing on campus, out of respect USC is expected to agree not to plant the sword.
And here I was pondering all the ways UCLA might prevent the band from performing if it did plant the sword. How many security personnel would be required to stop an entire marching band from taking the field?
Would Rose Bowl security escort the drum major to midfield and confiscate his sword before he planted it?
These are the questions enquiring minds wanted to know.
