According to some (see below), the story is not true, but there are several Web site/Twitter reports at this hour that claim certain members of the Stanford band have been caught with beer in their tubas at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Stanford of course upset Kansas earlier today in the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament Round of 32. (Student pictured above had nothing to do with tuba moonshine! Honest!).
The Stanford band got busted for trying to sneak booze in inside a tuba. That's awesome.

Nobody ever trusts the drummer. MT @sryantribune Stanford drummer told me tuba players falsely accused of smuggling in celebratory beverages

Probably a souse-a-phone RT @rickbozich: Scottrade Center security caught Stanford band members sneaking booze in with a tuba.

In honor of Stanford, I'm putting a flask in my tuba for tonight's concert
