Saw the show yesterday, I was trying to post a review but the comments tool wasn't working? If this gets posted I'll start typing one up. Edit: Hey it works finally, OK I'll edit this periodicall

The staff says the talent in the corps is across the board better than last year and they have high expectations from all captions. The design team has created a show from scratch and not "band-aid" (

public FB post (hope it is ok I'm sharing it here) from a 2019 Cadets brass member about one of his teachers in particular but also about the great tradition of alumni "lending" their corps jackets to

Word from the muckety-mucks on the 2019 uniform is that we'll instantly know they are the Cadets...that's a good thing.

Regarding Cadets in 2019, I think the way that Cadets handled 2018 speaks volumes, however I have spoken to people more in the know than I am and Cadets still has a great deal to do, because as we know the allegations facing the former director are not the only challenges  the corps is facing. That being said, it does seem as if there are capable people handling these things, and if in the midst of a huge storm last year the corps could place 7th, competitive success this year is not a bold prediction.

I would think much depends on the following:

Recruitment: Since every corps claims each year they have recruited the most talent in their history, this always is a remains to be seen category, but it's safe to assume Cadets still attracts top talent.

Returning vets: I think when you have placed near the top, the temptation to move to a medaling corps is greater. This could be a challenge for Cavies, Cadets, BAC, and Crown.

For me, one of the things I have  associated with Cadets whether it was a strong year placement wise or not, whether it was a show I enjoyed (most years) or not (only a few), is a strong sense of confidence. Moving forward, this will be important. Cadets have been about tradition, and they are also about innovation, I hope we see both. Just as I would love to see their northeast neighbors wear red and black, maroon and gold would be nice. Since my predictions preseason are always wrong, I'll keep those thoughts to myself, but I think it should be a good year.

Everyone knows someone "in the know." It's subjective at best, and conjecture at worst. Hopefully they'll overcome those challenges. I'll just wait until they take the field.
