What do I know, but hey I get to be king, so... Here's what I'd change:
Phantom Regiment 1989 - There were some weird mistakes in SCV's finals performance, at least what the video allowed me to witness. That, plus Regiment's brassline, gives them the edge. In most ways, SCV 1988 was the better show.
Cadets/Cavaliers Tie in 1992 -- The only knock I have about Cadets at finals was the tuning. And they were given a brass score reflecting that. Other than that, a perfect guard, a wonderful drumline, and a level of GE that was really amazing -- all great reasons to tie a Cavies corps with wonderful battery writing and a really solid program (especially the opener and closer).
Cadets/BD Tie in 1997 -- Of course BD was cleaner and smooth. Cadets put out probably their craziest show in terms of speed, and it was glorious, even if it costed them in achievement, but dang it it balances out in a (tied) win!
SCV 1999 outright -- I don't think I need to justify 🙂
Cavies 2000 outright - At least on finals night. A forward-thinking program that peaked at the right time.
Phantom Regiment 2006 - I thought the Cavies show was clever and obviously well performed, but that Regiment show jumped off the field and was performed with similar skill.
Cadets 2007 - They did the hard work all summer to sell a show that was mocked out loud in stadiums nationwide. One of the loudest shows I've ever heard, and performed with a fantastic level of energy. The 2nd half of BD's show, at least until the last minute, just sat there.
Crown 2009 - A charismatic show that took their program to the next level in the corps' decade-long slow build that peaked in 2013. Just loved this show.
