More than 330 Mississippi State University students will become well acquainted with the Mississippi summer heat as the Famous Maroon Band spends the week preparing for the fall football season.

The band, 338 members strong, will spend the week implementing the sets for its pregame and first halftime shows, in addition to reviewing marching fundamentals, stands tunes and music for shows it will perform later in the semester.
