The image for today’s article is of the Marching Illini at the OSU game last weekend. Today I will march my last game as a member of the band, but will continue to support Illinois Athletics in every way I have been the last 5(!!!) years. Here’s to the Heart of Dallas Bowl, where Tim Beckman bought the band pizza, and to every game, where no matter how full the stands were, I got to perform for the most dedicated of Illini nation at pregame and halftime.
