    2018 Predictions

    You're on DCP. Every thread becomes a Cadets thread.
  2. THAT HOW THE WEST WAS WON LICK! Welp, I'm now in full-hype mode for this season. Thank you Troopers.

    2018 HYPE

    IIRC, acoustic engineers were brought in...to ensure that as much noise from the crowd made it to the field as possible, so as to distract opposing teams.

    DCP-I Season 28 Changes

    Thoughts: 1) Yay! 2) Also a good thing 3) Seems like it probably should have been brought up in rules congress first. I like the idea, but it seems like it merited further discussion before being put into place.
  5. I'm not sure on your bolded part. I'm reminded of (in a much lower-stakes situation) the discussion of suspected PED users in baseball where "if you just admitted it, it would be fine"...and then when McGwire admitted it, everyone came down on him with a "how DARE you?" I'm less confident that people wouldn't have reacted poorly even if it had been disclosed and he'd behaved.
  6. No, you're wrong. Rape/molestation is bad. Full stop. Even if it's molesters molesting each other. So maybe don't joke about it. Same way assassination is bad and probably shouldn't be joked about, either.

    Update from the Philadelphia Inquirer

    Question for those of us who haven't been around for most of DCI's history--anyone know of a repository somewhere that lists the past BOD chairs? (Mostly for curiosity's sake.)
  8. Hot take: we shouldn't joke about prison-rape, even if the people involved are convicted sex offenders.

    Cadets Announce 2018 Program

    Sensemaya was in already. So that's at least one movement that didn't change. Supposedly the only thing that changed was pulling Sound of Silence (replacing it with "Opening Scene" and the Sigur Ros), but the Psathas listed now wasn't listed previously, and Ballet Sacra wasn't listed at all previously. Not sure if those were changes that had already been made but not announced or not, though.

    Cadets Announce 2018 Program

    If I were to hazard a guess, the singers that the previous design called for were already contracted before everything went down

    Blue Devils 2018

    An alternative guess for the Carole King: "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow"
  12. Boston played Conquest in the show as recently as 2014/2015.
  13. And that relationship would seem to not be a superior/subordinate thing (just because in my mind FE and the line are equivalent). That said, if that's not the case, shame on Catherine for having a relationship with a subordinate

    Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    Correct, though Gaines was on staff last year (as Creative Director for the whole organization). I felt that, while definitely a Weber drill, it showed Gaines' influence. Anyway, Weber's taking the year off because he and his wife have a new addition to the family (mazel tov to them), so Gaines is covering this year.
