We've received several angry e-mails from fans of both Missouri and Navy regarding the incident involving both bands at the conclusion of last week's Texas Bowl in Houston. Fans were upset that Mizzou showed "lack of class" in disrespecting the traditions of the Naval Academy; one even postulated that we had "hatred for the military" after a sequence in which both bands played simultaneously. While it should be noted that Mizzou has its own traditions that were interrupted as well, it is obvious that nothing could be further from the truth regarding disrespect for the military.

As is explained by Caitlin Carter in yesterday's Columbia Missourian, there was a misunderstanding between the schools.
