COLUMBIA — Just like the football team, members of Marching Mizzou are practicing for the upcoming season.

On Wednesday, Shane Batchelor, an MU junior, practiced drumstick movements between classes in Peace Park. Batchelor is a section leader on the Marching Mizzou Drumline. "Those who have been around longer help out the newer people. I like helping people out," Batchelor said.

Batchelor played on a snare drum practice pad.

He is creating new stick movements for the drumline.

Because of the move to the SEC, Marching Mizzou is sending a smaller band to every conference game, Batchelor said.

Because of the move to the SEC, Marching Mizzou is sending a smaller band to every conference game,

so does that mean that in the past they sent a larger band but not to every Big XII game
or does that mean
now they can send a band to every game but if they do go it has to be smaller for the SEC
