80 Minutes of Regulation is a band blog with a sports problem. Equal parts band- and sports-focused, 80 Minutes operates in the intersection. Whether it's sports doing band things or bands doing sports things, 80 Minutes is there from referee's whistle to drum major's whistle and back again.

Why 80 Minutes of Regulation?
80 Minutes of Regulation draws its name from college football and marching - 60 minutes on the clock, _ the 20 minutes allotted for halftime. While not exclusively college football, 80 Minutes was born there. And while it all started with band, 80 minutes could just as easily become 800: The prep, the tailgate, the lot, the game, the halftime show, the 5th quarter, and throughout the cadence of gameday.
