The Stanford Band is notorious for doing it’s own thing and ignoring the tradition of most marching bands.  Today at the Rose Bowl, they stepped it up a notch.  They poked fun at Wisconsin by using cheese puns during their performance, drummed on kitchen sinks and wore shirts advocating for marijuana to be legalized.The Stanford band has a girl wearing a mustache who is literally drumming on the kitchen sink twitpic.com/brn4le— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) January 1, 2013ESPN anchor Scott Van Pelt summed it up pretty well:Nobody gives fewer f’s than the Stanford band.— Scott Van Pelt (@notthefakeSVP) January 1, 2013I personally wondered why the band was able to do this, and if the University was okay with this occurring, and found this on Twitter..@cjzero Unlike most schools, Stanford has very little control over their band. It is a student organization— Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) January 2, 2013Pretty interesting, I wonder how the alumni feel about the bands antics?  Perhaps they are just us...
