    7th in percussion or 8th in horns will not get you close to any podium. The little men in green just did not like what our Cadets put on the field this summer. Fan of the Arts

    I agree! Those diagonal lines behind the pews in the beginning of the show and the next 16 maybe 24 counts are just not cadet razor clean. How can they not see that? It's where my eyes go every show and it has yet to be perfect. Come on Cadets--dig deep and make it happen. Fan of the Arts

    (Flame suit on).....feeling dejected during a time when Cadets once owned the month of August. What's so disappointing is the Cadets have not learned from their design mistakes the last few years and we keep losing our talented staff to other corps. I will remain a true Cadet fan giving of my time and money but something has to be done to stop this bleeding. Fan of the Arts

    How long has this elephant been sitting in the middle of the living room? Fan of the Arts

    George I feel they should go back to the flugelhorn solo at the beginning instead of the vocal. Just more pleasing to the ear. Fan of the Arts

    More than two judges had Cavies 1st in some captions. I started the season thinking there were three shows better than BD. How many times has my friend told me never bet against BD? This is a two horse race with a herd fighting for third! Fan of the Arts

    That's exactly what I was trying to get at. I hope it doesn't happen either but you have to admit the judges (little men in green shirts) do like them. Fan of the Arts

    And they certainly are not at Cadet squeaky clean yet! Fan of the Arts

    Missing my point which was about Cavies....remember them now only .4 behind who (as you clear your throat) Bluecoats. I think we've all known where Cadets were going to finish once Boston beat them for the first time in a very long time. But look who's crashing the podium party. It's a good year and the best Cadets can do with a good show is 6th. Fan of the Arts

    I really need to spell this out for you? It is always about who our adjudicators like or not like and in this case they clearly like Cavies. There is a week left and Cavies certainly have their eyes on Bluecoats and if they have their eyes on BC then why not the podium? Fan of the Arts

    And the way its going; it looks like our little men in green are pushing Cavies for a strong finish. Someone may just be pushed off the podium but it isn't who I thought it would be in a million years or the corps who's doing the pushing. Fan of the Arts

    Oh, just spill the beans; I would. Fan of the Arts

    It's been a minute since I've posted but I still believe Cadets have it in their show to finish 5th with Cavies and Boston behind them. The top four are set. And the hurdle is for the adjudicators to figure it out (the choir) and reward it properly. Fan of the Arts
  14. Can Cadets medal?

    If you look at this question from a caption perspective then I will say yes the Cadets have a chance at medalling. If you think their ceiling is 4th I don't see why they can't medal. As shocking as it may sound to some the one being pushed off the podium will be the most shocking. Take your pick BD, Crown, SCV? Fan of the Arts

    I know; :) you have mentioned that before. I always think of catching a ride with you to a show. Fan of the Arts
