Lane Kiffin and Marqise Lee visit the USC band in an ice cream truck (Video)

Collegiate bands don't get nearly the respect or praise they deserve from the football teams they serenade, but USC is trying to change that.

USC coach Lane Kiffin and star receiver Marqise Lee drove an ice cream truck onto the field where the Trojan band was practicing and served the entire group tasty cold treats.

That's a pretty cool gesture (see what we did there).

And yes, there's probably a joke in here about Kiffin's future job, but we're going to stay away from that one until we see how the Trojans play this season.
