Usually my thread would discuss overall numbers but with everyone in the major conferences coming up I'm looking more at how much consistency each band will maintain of course recruiting and freshman classes will play a role but these are some things I'll be looking from with particular band's;

AAMU: maintaining the great balanced versatile sound, steady growth and beefing up lower and upper brass, and want to see montoya takeover where curtisha left off

Alcorn: steadying the direction the program is going in nice aggressive style

Bama state: getting back to that aggressive come for you style and brass sound that makes a band battle them for "entertainment"

BCU: consistency and some newer updated stand songs

Tennessee state: are they looking to grow or keep they're same number with the great sound, would like to see sophisticated ladies improve.

Famu & ncat: growth or not?

Talladega: cooling off or still growing?

JSU: consistency in trumpet section and more balanced arrangements

Southern: growth or not? & perfecting the tuba section

Txsu & pvamu: growth? Dance squads maintaining growth and maturation, And taking on bigger songs

Miles & grambling: growth or willing to maintain consistency?

Yeah you can't bs it... it's one of those songs that you can afford to overblow and not be crisp because of the chords and the transitions

It definitely would have to be really aggressive.
I would double check that, but we'll see. Side note isn't that battle for the crown botb's in Greenville south Carolina this weekend???
