    Top 12 All Time Shows

    1. Cadets 93 2. Cadets 87 3. Cadets 84 4. Blue Devils 86 5. Spirit 80 6. Madison 75 7. Star 91 8. Cavaliers 00 9. Crown 09 10. Bluecoats 14 11. Blue Devils 09 12. Vanguard 73 I tried to include shows that were my favorites as well as those I felt were transformative for the activity. For instance, Crown 09 is the year they figured out the formula to win. Vanguard 73 was revolutionary. I included Spirit 80 for its historical significance.

    All of us know what cost us the championships in those years. There’s no way we were beating Crown in 13, and the cringeworthy narration in 07 was just an embarrassment. Honestly, from 06 on, we didn’t understand what was needed to win. Our individual performance captions were excellent, but visual and GE...YIKES!
  3. I hate the Cadets’ costume. It does not show well on the field.

    That doesn’t make anyone culpable of abetting in You-Know-Who’s alleged lawbreaking. It just makes them a bad judge of character.
  5. Here’s how you answer someone who questions rifles, swords, spears, etc. Art imitates life. They’re not real. They’re meant to be a visual representation of the theme the designers are trying to convey. You need to lighten up and have a Zebra Cake.

    Yep, the most important task at hand is to clean. The show is fine. It’s a colossal improvement over the garbage foisted upon the members the past two seasons. It’s a good beginning to a new era.

    2018 Predictions

    I agree there will be a number of corps fighting for second place. BD’s show is a beast. Expect a spread by finals. It won’t be close.

    2018 Predictions

    I agree, and add the fact their brass is top 2 easily. I think their percussion is the weakest, but that’s just splitting hairs on my part. There may be a spread between one and two by finals.

    2018 Predictions

    Blue Devils are going to take it again. There’s just too much visual and GE horsepower for anyone else to overcome. Their guard is going to be legendary by finals.

    His decline as a designer happened as early as 2006, but it really started to rear its ugly head in 2007 with his obsession with narration and New Age gobbledygook. If the corps members and caption heads hadn’t been top notch we probably would have seen a precipitous drop in placement way before 2016.

    91 is by far the most competitive season of DCI on record. There wasn’t one lackluster corps in the top twelve.

    It wasn’t, but their hypocrisy fails to excuse the alleged behavior of Hopkins and those who covered for him.

    Given the political climate, it’s standard operating procedure to distance learning institutions from all instances of impropriety and alleged criminal behavior. I don’t mean to sound harsh, but thirty years of abuse and cover-up cannot be erased with two months worth of record. The corps is off to a good start, but it’s going to be years before its reputation has been repaired.
