Texas’s band ran into some issues getting to Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday for the Longhorns’ matchup against Alabama as air traffic in the area resulted in a delayed landing.

When they finally arrived to their seats way up in the upper deck, fans around the country took notice. It’s ironic, because the seating arrangement the Tide gave the Longhorns mirrors what Texas did to Alabama’s band last season.

In short, the Longhorns placed the Million Dollar Band in the upper deck in 2022. Because it was nowhere near the field and kind of defeated the purpose of having a band in the first place, they didn’t even bother to make the trip to Austin.


Fans reacted to the Longhorn Band’s placement Saturday evening. Take a look at some of the best responses below:
