In this Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, photo, Robert Champion, a drum major in Florida A&M University's Marching 100 band, performs during halftime of a football game in Orlando, Fla. The band, which has a history of hazing, has been shut down until investigators find out more about how Champion died after the game. University President James Ammons said on Tuesday, Nov. 22, he suspended all performances and other activities out of respect for the family of Champion, 26, of Atlanta. The drum major was found unresponsive on a bus parked in front of an Orlando hotel Saturday night after the school's loss to annual rival Bethune-Cookman. Champion was vomiting and had complained he couldn't breathe before he collapsed. (AP Photo/The Tampa Tribune, Joseph Brown III)
