  1. Yes. It ain't about the chromosomes, it's about the talent (staff, MMs) and management. A co-ed Madison Scouts, with the same talent and same management, would likely finish competitively the same. The theory that the mere act of adding women makes the talent level improve is an untested and likely untrue one.

    Way to commit haha!

    2018 Uniforms!

    Yeah, I don't know. I understand what you're saying. I just think it's such a different world it's not really a comparison or a - what goes around comes around- thing. It would be like saying that because Cadets sang in the late '70's, singing today is doing something that's been done before. To me, there is no comparison between literally singing one word in 1978 (or was it 77 or 79... memory fades haha).....and the way in which voice is used today. In my opinion of course.

    Not sure what point you're trying to make. That corps went without headgear "back in the day"? Sure, a couple one-offs here and there. Nothing like today. Not even close. Exceptions don't prove the rule.
  7. Would this be about the right place for the gratuitous "how long till the season starts?" post?

    2018 Predictions

    I don't know if this is an all inclusive list. But if it is, that means that for 37 of its 46 seasons, Bruckner is right. Pretty good odds there. Although I've been corrected that this theory applies only to FIRST TIME champions. So therefore, for example, the theory tells us that the Boston Crusaders cannot win this season.

    Ahhh. I always have a hard time understanding Bruckner's theorems. I am not the brightest bulb on the string <sigh>. Although other plausible excuses include short attention span, or I really just don't care.

    2018 Predictions

    According to Bruckner's theory of competitive inertia, there are three, and only three, corps that can win this year: Blue Devils, SCV, or Crown. Enjoy the season!!!
  11. Interesting post. How do issues youth care about come into being? I would like to hope it happens organically. But the cynic in me wonders if these issues are jammed down the throats of the younger generation by the older generations e.g. baby boomers. Indoctrination in the schools for example. As a baby boomer, I'd like to add that I find baby boomers an extremely irritating lot for the most part.

  13. That's a pretty broad generalization. Not sure I agree with it.
