With so many predicting Cavaliers to medal, does the same hold true for Cavies? If not, why not?

I think the fact that they are even asking the question indicates that they no longer have a compelling reason to limit their recruiting to only 50% of the available talent.

Maybe that is because prior generations have done nothing to fix the issues that youth care about?  Maybe my saying "have done nothing" is too harsh, but I would argue that your claim that "Younger Mi

Yes.   It ain't about the chromosomes, it's about the talent (staff, MMs) and management.  A co-ed Madison Scouts, with the same talent and same management, would likely finish competitively the same.

I hope you are not judging. You've already pre-judged the performance before the season has even begun.

Will Madison be a medalist or dci champion again as a co-ed corps?  Is that your inference?

The changes in general scouting organizations are ridiculous. When did everyone become angry at everything?

I don't see it as anger but a reflection of simply the evolution of a society.  Things change over time.   Just look at drum corps for a perfect example of that!

This is just such a terrible idea. It really isnt unexpected given the obvious identity issues the corps is having. Would like them to hold on to thier identity.

I think it’s possible. I don’t think it’s reasonable to project Madison to be a medalist again if they continue to believe that they must be one gender. Like it or not, dci is moving quickly to a theatrical design paradigm. Imo you can’t eliminate half of the best marching members from Day 1 and expect to compete with 16+ Male and female world class corps.

I am not saying they shouldn’t hold on to their identity. But dci shows are way way beyond the past “identity” of the Scouts now. If you’re okay with Madison fighting to make finals, that’s cool, just don’t get angry when it happens.

Leave Madison alone.  Their alumni should  decide this — and nobody else.
