For decades, the Marching 100 struck students, alumni and fans during FAMU football games at halftime.
But, in November of last year, tragedy struck the band.
Drum major Robert Champion died at the Orlando classic.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office and state medical examiners said it was because of hazing.
TeAiris Majors was a member of the band. Now he will be a member of the crowd.
"I wish I could be marching, it's unfortunate but I'm still here," Majors said.
Since the hazing incident. People wondered. What will happen to FAMU football?
"Even though we can't see the Marching 100 and they were a big morale booster at the football games, we're still gonna come out and support because were all rattlers at heart," said Michael Brasfield, a FAMU student.
The answer: an enhanced experience halftime show with multiple performances.
This week's game featured famous Atlanta rapper, FUTURE, and a DJ battle.
"I liked it," said student, Breanna Peterson.
"Nothing can replace the Marching 100, but it was good," said FAMU freshman, Chelsey Goodwin.
Many fans echoed similar messages, that it was good to see FUTURE perform, but it was no Marching 100.
