  1. If you're counting only DCI Championships, don't forget the Cavaliers. If you're counting other championships (VFW, etc.), then I think you're right as it is, unless Phantom has some I don't know about.
  2. My unpopular opinion: They scored way too high in the visual captions in 2008 to begin with I had no idea about Madison's 6th-1st-7th rollercoaster. What a ride! Any explanations for that? Show, staff, members, etc.?
  3. In the past several years, it seems that these three shows have had the most fan support to pull out a surprise Finals week. I'm curious to see which is the favorite!
  4. Crown Avon HS did that in 2004, actually.
  5. Stu, You and I have not gotten along in the past, but thank you SO MUCH for pointing out the BLATANT hypocrisies in BBB's logic! BBB, I'm sorry that you're convinced that so many of us are "losers" and that you clearly see yourself as a "winner." Perhaps you should give Charlie Sheen a call. I gather that the two of you have much in common!...not the least of which is your infatuation with your own perceived greatness
  6. FIXED: If you throw your third place medal directly at members of the corps that jumped up to second on Finals night, you haven't learned the single most valuable lesson about WINNING itself. And if you throw your second place medal at the exact same corps two years later...
  7. From the author of CI himself, regarding 2009: "My preseason picks, based solely on CI were: 1) Crown would NOT win 2) Cadets would win (Wrong) 3) Phantom would be 5th or lower 4) Bloo would be 4-6 again"
  8. That's all fine and good, but my issue with CI is when particular posters begin using it as a mask to secretly complain about their corps being stuck in 4-7th when they think they should actually be higher.
  9. :worthy: But yes. It will simply be adjusted to explain why Vanguard isn't scoring as well as he thinks they should.
  10. Didn't a lot of brass players follow Cipriani to Cadets from SCV in 2005?
  11. Can Step Two be: "If you're an instructor for a current corps, don't go on DCP making comments that would embarrass your organization (and new one, if this staff change actually happens)" ? Because, apparently, no one else has figured it out...?
  12. Andre Tommy Mr. Feagin is a fantastic musician and educator. I can't wait to hear Academy next year! On a sidenote, I see that the percussion caption head resigned. Any news there? What about guard (which I thought was their real problem...)?
  13. I've never really believed that, either. I was always given 10 push-ups whenever we made a mistake. By day two, those 10 push-ups took next to no effort, so for the remaining 89 days of the season, dropping to do 10 was just a total waste of time.
  14. But think about respecting them that much while they STILL treated YOU with respect! I have yet to be at a professional orchestra rehearsal where the conductor tells us to take a 30-second "gush and go." No conductor has ever asked me to do push-ups for cracking a note, for coming in late at an entrance, or for being out of tune with the first clarinet. Granted, these things don't happen very often (if I may say so...). But, these conductors know that sometimes, things just don't go right. No big deal. We'll get it next time. Push-ups don't happen in Berlin. Not in Chicago. Not at Juilliard.
