Orange Bowl bans the Stanford Band from halftime...

...for the sake of LeBron James' ego

In case any of you are interested.
Apparently bowl officials were concerned that the band might mock LeBron James and hurt his feelings.
One of my favorite highlights of the band's history:
• Received a lifetime ban from Notre Dame in 1997 for playing with a conductor in a nun's habit and a wooden crucifix as a baton during a show titled "These Irish, Why Must They Fight?" which featured jokes about the 19th Century Irish Potato Famine and reportedly prompted a fan to charge the field screaming "You're all going to hell!";
