BLOCK ‘M’


The “Block M” is the main Marching Band tradition. In their football game halftime routine, band members form the outline of a capital ‘M’ in the University lettering. After the formation, the band rotates 180 degrees and walks the M down the field back to their original location, keeping the letter intact at all times. This may sound simple, but is truly an incredible sight to see; no Gopher game would be the same without the Block M.
