Rice Owls Band Makes ‘$EC’ Formation
[Editor’s Note: This article has been updated after receiving more information about the performance.]
The Rice Owls band known as the “MOB” (Marching Owls Band) is known for its crazy antics like in 2007, when it mocked the legal troubles of Texas players by doing a “Dragnet” theme in Austin.
And they really outdid themselves Saturday night when Rice played against the Longhorns again. While performing on the field, the band formed the word “$EC” with a dollar sign for the “S” in reference to the fact Texas A&M is attempting to leave the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.
While most people have been critical of Texas for driving members out of the conference with things such as the Longhorn Network, the folks in Austin certainly appreciated a shot at the arch-rival Aggies for pursuing more money in another league.
