Southern Miss Pep Band Members Who Chanted "Where's Your Green Card?" Have Been Kicked Off The Pep Band

We first showed you what it looked and sounded like last week, when members of the Southern Miss pep band put their ignorance on full display by taking aim at Kansas State's Angel Rodriguez during the first round of the NCAA tournament. In case you missed it, we've again posted the video for you above.


The school has since taken action, according to this email, which went around this morning to members of the Southern Miss faculty and staff:

Subject: [All-facstaff] University Takes Disciplinary Action Against Pep Band Students

The University has completed its review of the incident that occurred during last Thursday's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament game and is taking disciplinary action against five members of the pep band.

The students have had their pep band scholarships revoked, have been removed from the band, and will be required to complete a two-hour cultural sensitivity training course this week.
