I believe that the decision to exclude TCC students from the band was premature. TCC students who intend (or sign letters of intent, if you please) to enroll at FAMU should be reconsidered. It could not hurt the declining enrollment at FAMU. I refer to students who can finish their stints at TCC ‘on time’. To my knowledge, there are not any NCAA prohibitions against allowing those students to play in the band. To likrn bsnd membership to membership on a NCAA sanctioned team is, well, unfair.
