On Thursday, Nov. 2 the “Baddest Band in the Land,” the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band (PotM) packed up all 480-some marching members, along with staff, into nine charter buses and left at 9 a.m. from campus, bound first for Columbia, South Carolina and then for Charleston.

As we traveled, a PotM tradition began: bus interviews. These are interviews for students that can contain many outrageous questions. Hilarity ensued.
