The university cited “ongoing game management concerns, time constraints and space issues at the Galen Center,” but there was a belief that Swann had stepped in and blocked them from performing after some members joined in chants calling for the firing of football coach Clay Helton. Whatever the reason, the decision was unpopular, and much of the ire was directed at Swann for the decision.

Swann has since left the school under mysterious circumstances. It’s no coincidence that the Song Girls were brought back barely a month later.
