UNR senior Ike Allrege has been playing the trumpet since the fifth grade. Now in his final year college...he thought he'd get the opportunity of a lifetime.
Allrege - who's a huge wolf pack fan - says when the team became bowl eligible, the athletics department told the band they would be able to go with them. The excitement and anticipation had been building for weeks....until Monday's rehearsal was cut short, with a surprise announcement that the band will not go.
Allrege says he understands it would be extremely pricey to fly about 130 band members to Hawaii, but he says after the promise was made, it's a huge let down.
