Stanford is also not considered a liberal bastion. It is pretty conservative by the standards of most of the elite academic institutions in the US. It has many ties to Republicans. It is home to the conservative Hoover Institute which has had George Schultz, Condi Rice, and Ed Meese on fellowships.

Meh...
That's just Stanford.

The students there have been picking political fights for the last 50 years. It's a school tradition now.

Liberals crave attention and acceptance.

How funny. In 1984 the Stanford band came to the University of Oklahoma and the administration let them perform at halftime. They ripped Okies and the state of Oklahoma. I remember they made a tractor and spelled out "Bingo"

I don't think anybody really cared though because we hear the same type of stuff every October when we are "invited" to Dallas, Tx to play the Longhorns every year. The difference is that in Dallas it's a whole weekend of that stuff instead of just a halftime.

Probably one of the more famous marching bands because of this touchdown play where the Stanford band guy gets crushed

BTW, when did Stanford's logo (A big letter S) get a tree in the middle of it?

I watched them when John Elway was a student there, a star quarterback, and I don't recall a tree in the S then.
