FAMU Band's Suspension Extends to Next Academic Year
An investigation also uncovered that more than 100 members of what once was considered among of the finest marching bands in the world were actually not students at the school during the time of Champion's death.
Even the now-retired White admitted last week that the band should not be reinstated in time for next fall's football season.
"In all honesty, this fall may be too soon," White told the Tallahassee Democrat. "Even though it was not the majority of the band members involved, the lesson needs to be really implemented and stressed that conduct is more important than the product of marching and entertaining."
