HBCU BANDS VS. FOOTBALL? | Fight Breaks Out between Morgan State Football and Norfolk State Band | VIDEOS

We love HBCU Football at NFL Draft Diamonds, but let’s be real, the bands are pretty damn good too! So there has been a debate for years what is better, between the bands and football teams, but we all know the experience is what makes the game.

Well, this past weekend the Morgan State football team happened to be in the same tunnel as the Norfolk State band, and that didn’t go well.

A Spartan band member apparently hit a football play with his or hear flagpole and then all hell broke out!

Here are some videos, and some content on the situation:

Morgan State would go on to get the win, but the schools VP of Athletics released this statement:

“Congratulations to our Bears football team on a great comeback victory in a very competitive game against the Norfolk State University Spartans,” said MSU VP of Athletics Dena Freeman-Patton. “We thank Norfolk State for hosting us during their homecoming celebration. Norfolk State has a great campus with a great sports atmosphere, and we look forward to future competitions against the Spartans.

“Apart from the positive aspects of the game and its outcome, it has come to our attention that during the day’s activities, an incident transpired resulting in an altercation between parties from both universities, particularly involving members of the football team and the Spartan band.

“This matter is currently being investigated and will result in any appropriate actions needed to be taken. What transpired off the field is not reflective of what Morgan State University stands for or the core values it upholds.”

Pretty Wild situation, I wonder if anyone will be suspended for the fight. It should be water under the bridge.
