Princenton Hoopster Call Crazies “Nerds”

Princeton guard U.K. Cray (not his real name) couldn’t wait to Twitter his fellow Princetonites about the scene he and teammates confronted at Cameron Indoor Stadium for last night’s game against the Duke Blue Devils.


“The Viking thing for the kid that died was cool,” Bray said, “but, the rest of those people are just nerds. Goofy, brainiac nerds…”


“Look,” Bray continued, “we’re Princeton, we know Nerds…Nerds R Us, if you know what I mean. Seriously, have you seen our pep band? Nerd Hall of Fame. But this group could win any Nerd-off.”

The Princeton band Cray (not his real name) mentioned is a “Scramble Band” not dissimilar to the pep band at UVa. According to their website: The Princeton University Band, founded in 1919, is one of less than a dozen scramble bands in the country. A "scramble band" is kind of like a "marching band", only with less formality, more funniness, and more fun — in other words, better. The PUB has been known to march on occasion, but we're more likely to amble or saunter around. We're not your high school band. During our halftime shows, we get in and out of formation by scrambling. Hence the term "scramble band."

“Saunter around…”

They go on to say: The Band exists as much for the enjoyment of its own members as it does for the entertainment of spectators. (No, really! It says so in our Constitution.)

“Constitution…”

Nice, Princeton, NICE!
