High Notes 2016 Week 1

What a week 1 it was! The ESPN-proclaimed Best Opening Weekend in the History of All of College Football didn't disappoint in terms of intrigue from the football standpoint, and some of the band action wasn't too shabby either.

I'll use the holiday weekend's bookends as Week 1's high notes. While there were games on Thursday and Friday, the weekend began at 7:30am Eastern with Georgia Tech and Boston College meeting in Dublin Ireland. Hey, I suppose Ireland's got an Atlantic Coast too. What's notable is that the Screamin' Eagles and Marching Yellowjackets did a joint halftime show across the pond, making it quite the Band on the Road trip.

On the other end of the weekend, FSU and Ole Miss did battle in Camping World Stadium (formerly the Shitrus Citrus Bowl). The game was a great end to the weekend, and both the Pride of the South and the Marching Chiefs brought great power to Orlando.
