  1. I think they's still be more inclined to follow Roger Carter to Bluecoats if they weren't already marching there. I'm not sure those groups will see more of an increase than what they may have already had. It's a different technique.
  2. I’ve got to be honest, does this really fix the issue? It’s not like the Colts were better than the Mandarins or anything like that. I'm sure they are all fine individuals but I don’t expect very different results either.
  3. That makes sense. His vision is why Mandarins are what they are. I just assumed he had more control over the percussion staff because if his background.
  4. I can only assume that if Ike Jackson leaves that it will be a big change for Mandarins. Knowing Ayala's style, it is clear Ike had a huge role in designing Mandarin's shows in recent years. I can also tell that Mike Jackson has had a huge role in designing BK's shows. It is almost like they will morph into each other.
  5. FWIW, I was at a soccer game last night and didn’t watch finals but got home in time to watch retreat. I have 500mbps service from WOW! And the stream constantly cut out but I had no issues with prelims or semifinals. They had complaints of issues from the MLS teams they service as well so the issue seems to be with how they originate the service. Clearly LOS should offer sufficient bandwidth in the facility since NFL games are streamed from there.
  6. Well, its the balance of both since the caption is divided between content and achievement. I don't believe it is more about one or the other. It is about both. You won't get rewarded for one without the other.
  7. And how many who cancel now will either rejoin next season or complain because they are unable to watch the Music For All Summer Symposium broadcast from Ball State in June?
  8. Or they are just listed because they can only do camps, or 1-2 weeks of tour, or a week of move-ins, etc. I can't speak for SCV but I'm willing to be just about everyone only has 1 tech on tour at a time. Maybe 2 for a day or two when there is a switchover going on due to life commitments.
  9. SCV and BD marched 9 FWIW. They were able to play clean.
  10. In what world does a staff coordinator have authority over a corps director? Isn't a staff coordinator hired by the corps director to put the educational staff in place?
  11. When the season started, I thought they were a lock for finals. Then PR addressed their issues and improved way more than I thought they would. With that being said, I think it cmes down to choosing a show concept that has more room for growth during the season and having a plan to address it as the season goes along. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't see any significant changes in the show as the season went along. It was a finals worthy show but PR seemed to work harder and do the necessary rewrites and changes to get their end product where it was for the judges to buy into it.
  12. Not sure how exactly it determined the gold. BD was phenomenal in prelims and semis. I didn't watch finals last ngiht but I'm sure their placement was well deserved. With only 12 groups to score he left an appropriate gap in numbers as he saw fit. BD and SCV were clearly better than Bluecoats in percussion. That is just how it is. Why not blame the Bluecoats 3rd place color guard or the CG judge for costing them the gap too? Both groups were very good. A collective group of 11 judges felt BD was just a bit better last night.
  13. How about a show designer instead.
  14. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. What makes Hey Jude what special to me the the buildup through the entire song. You can't make up for that in 45 seconds.It would be a no brainer for them to win if they had a great ending.
