Wassup fellow bandheads, it's that time of year again, with about a week until camp's and training will start. These are some things in wondering about.... Who is the surprise band of the year? What band will be bigger / smaller than anticipated? What band will exceed / under exceed expectations? And what will be the best battle?

I'm not going to do number talk because I know y'all will have insight and photos, but I am on key bands going to provide what I'm looking for and want to see that will help each band.

AAMU: continued growth (especially core brass sections) and diverse arrangements. Damn sure can't wait to see the divas with this captain combo.

JSU: getting back to that awesome 2014 sound and being consistent on the field. Also checking for them jsettes too.

SU: bring some of those power r&b ballads back, also will be watching them gorgeous dolls too.

Alcorn: don't try to out jsu jsu and don't try to su su, because y'all cats are brewing something special

Bama state: musicianship and stability is key

Txsu: sneaky band that I would like to see get back to that 2006 year. I must say I can't wait for the match up with aamu this year.

Grambling: continuity and arrangements

Pvamu: consistency I like what y'all are working with, let's diversify song choice too. More r&b

Bcu: keep being you, I need more uptempo selections

Famu: I'm still waiting on old famu to reach the new generation but you guys are on your way I would love to see more exposure and more aggressiveness.

Ncat: nothing musically but i want to see more production in the stands to match what, bcu and famu give us. Also if like to see you guys branch out and play a swac team in an home and home series

Tnst: same with aamu steady growth and diverse arrangements, I love y'all too, very all around band.

Miles: (y'all aren't sneaking up on me, the swac equivalent to alcorn)

Share them photos and preseason sneak clips y'all!!!

Since 2014 every year JSU and tenn st. Alternate band size
Lol that does seem true, I do hope Tennessee State gets back to that 2014 size. Hopefully we'll see a video or two of them. If imagine we'll see some merge vids of different bands by Sunday. With the qcbotbs next Saturday.

Tennessee State looks like they have a brass section that is about 140 to 150, great size!!
Now that i got a closer look at Tenn St, they look about the same as last year. The way they were spread out in the bleachers made them look larger than they are.I still see about 25 trombones, 16 btones and mellos and maybe about 30 trumpets. Look about 240
I seen about 20 btones. I think they need some more tpets if the btones going to be blowing.

Tennessee State instrumentation is @ 243....pretty damn good to not be affiliated with the SWAC nor MEAC conferences.....some of the numbers stated during previous post about certain instrument sections are a little larger though....I counted the numbers of each section THOROUGHLY....so all in all it's looking and sounding good over here...
