  1. 1. Which is the most impressive statistic in DCI History?

    • SCV's 35 consecutive appearances at Finals
      71
    • Blue Devils' 32 consecutive top 5 placements
      77
    • Cavaliers' 7 consecutive top 2 placements
      76
    • Blue Devils' 11 championships
      20
    • Blue Devils' average placement of 2.58
      35

The only problem with comparing era's is that in the 60's and into the early years of DCI not every corps attended Nationals.

The VFW was the "big" contest for Juniors in the 60's. In 1963 the Cavaliers won the championship in Seattle, Washington. The Troopers who were a couple of years away from being a power were 2nd. Would the Cavaliers have won if the other powers of the time were present. Nobody knows and there never was a single contest that year that had all of the eastern and midwestern powers.

Another probelm was you had to be sponsored by a VFW post. If you wern't you couldn't go, so corps like the Muchachos were exlcuded as were al the Canadian Corps.

That said the Cavaliers did have an enviable record in the 60's which they are now duplicating in the 00's. The difference is that all of their titles are now coming against the best competition.

Another interesting statistic:

The Crossmen are the only active drum corps that has beaten every other Division 1 drum corps at least once in their existence.

Please explain. Are you including corps that have gone inactive since Crossmen's founding? Has Crossmen beaten Blue Devils?

Please give us the show where XMEN beat BD.

Late 70's I can easily see Bones beating the Cadets and Cavies.

SCV in 1980(most likely)

PR in a couple of off years.

Bones were DQ'd in 75 when BD finished 9th. After that I can't think of a time they would have come close.

BD finished 9th in 1974. They were 3rd in 1975.

DCI East 1991, Crossmen over Blue Devils.

Finals 1992, Crossmen over SCV.

All season long 2001, Crossmen over PR up until quarterfinals.

And 1 correction. Crossmen have never beaten Star. My bad. :)
