Stanford University Director of Athletics Ted Leland today issued an apology to Brigham Young University and their fans and alumni for the halftime show performed by the Stanford Band in last Saturday's football game. Leland said he would meet with the Band to discuss possible sanctions.
"The actions of the Stanford Band in Saturday's game were inappropriate and I wish to apologize to BYU, their team, fans and alumni," said Leland. "We are committed to being good hosts to our opponents who visit Stanford and anything that doesn't reflect this is regrettable. I plan on meeting with the Stanford Band as soon as possible to discuss their behavior and possible sanctions."
