Re: Is it time to shut it down?????

My vote is for a FB page. I think that would be the easiest (and free) way to keep it going.

Re: Hello all!

Marianne, although I know I would enjoy it, I do not have the time. Marching season is so crazy for me.

Hello all!

Hey there everyone. I have been lurking a little lately since the season has come to a close. It has been busy times for me (us) but I did want to drop in and say hello. We are back in my home town and I am teaching at my alma mater. We recently moved into a new home and are also in the process of a...

Re: Congrats to Blue Devils

There was booing? I agree with bucko. The issue has nothing to do with the performers. It is the design that many have issue with (along with the judging).

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

Okay... Now that I have seen the show... I am going to weigh in ONE more time on this... With no replies... so chew me up all you want... I have seen it for myself. This BD show is one of the MOST difficult programs that I have ever seen on a field. It also has some of the most innovative and effec...

Re: Random Historic Statistic

I think it is almost completely about identity, and in the end, placement. From what I know personally, and have heard the corps is run well. The kids finish the summer happy with their experience. I just don't think the corps, as an entity in TX has a real strong identity yet. They haven't really d...

Re: Random Historic Statistic

Crossmen alumni and fans really need to bang the drums next season. You're in Texas, and you still can't muster a DCI finalist position? What's holding you back? That IS odd when you come to think of it. Any Texans, Crossmen alumni or former Texans(Strong Hint: Michael Bodine) with persepctive on t...

Re: Random Historic Statistic

That is interesting. It is odd this year how every single spot basically is still up for grabs and very competitive except for the winner, which has been a lock for weeks now.

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

I've watched all of the Atlanta shows, and I've definitely got some favorites. Here's my G7 :twisted: 1. Blue Stars 2. Crown 3. Pioneer--gotta love a corps that plays the doxology:) 4. Madison Scouts 5. Cavaliers 6. Academy 7. Bluecoats There are more I like, but I found these to be very entertaini...

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

I got some dish on Crown the other day--juicy stuff that I can't reveal just yet except maybe to Michael. I think they're going to sit in fourth or maybe third if what I heard is successful. I just don't think their battery can be fixed given their score in Atlanta, but I was shocked at their brass...

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

...will future corps in future years look to the BD example and lower their own show demand in response. No more than they ever did from the Cadets success with 'prop' shows... or SCV or Star from years ago for that matter. This is paranoia of a specific style of show taking over. But this has been...

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

Yes but... LA... it's happening every night with every judging panel everywhere. To say that it is Ridiculous... well okay... it's ridiculous (ridiculously good apparently). But to say that it is undeserved IS an allegation of conspiracy. Call it what you want. I don't think it is that far-fetched ...

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

Look at the scores from last night in Hattiesburg. No one even close to BD. Ronnie Rios gives GE Music to BD over Crown by almost an entire point. Carl Bly gives BD the brass win by .7 over Crown. Ridiculous. Undeserved. The judges have spoken.

Re: BigMo's Rankings through July 23, 2010, plus stats

My prediction is that 99.5 goes down this year. I bet not! The Cavies have the show for it though - but may not quite get there. :-) I agree that the Cavies have the best shot to catch BD, and I love their show. I adore that circle drill...brilliant design. However, my gut tells me that the judges ...
