  1. First and foremost congratulations to Hebron, very VERY well deserved, and what I'm about to say is not to take away from their victory or any bands placement tonight. However, I need someone to help me understand the inconsistencies between judging panels at UIL. BOA is far from perfect, but they at least seem to be more consistent over their competitions. There is no doubt that bands have good runs and bad runs and that a lot of progress can be made within even just a week, but it seems a large portion of UIL is just a crapshoot with what judges you get. Again, I know that BOA, and all judged events for that matter, have a similar fatal flaw, but UIL just seems to suffer from it worse than most. Look at vista ridge over vandy or ctj over reagan from the Area competitions or look at BOASA from this past weekend (an event that UIL is trying to judge more like) yet you have CTJ dropping to 8th while just the other day taking bronze at BOASA. (again they are 2 separate competitions and judged differently, but you can't convince me Jarrett Lipman didn't piss in the judges cheerios over the weekend) Jokes aside, I really am curious as to why UIL suffers so much more from discrepancies compared to other judged events, so please, enlighten me fellow band nerds
  2. lol don't get so stressed out about what others are doing, enjoy the fact that we just witnessed one heck of a competition that everyone can be proud of. if it really upsets you, write a poem to their band director, don't drag the vibe down here.
  3. Nothing quite gets me ready for bed like the beautiful sound of Texas Marching Bands. The legendary book, Where the Wild Things Are, states "There should be a place where only the things you want to happen, happen." CTJ you took me to that place tonight and that's all a person can ask for. Thank you
