They have marching bands?
I can't tell if this is hilarious... maybe it's still funny even if they do.
My college had division III athletics and no marching band.
My high school had won the top class football championships a few times and had no marching band. _________________ LA Benge 3X Bb Trumpet

I've heard several of these bands live and from what ive heard "The Ohio" state sounded horrible live, they play all brass instruments, which i am a fan of, but their Eb cornets sounded like kazoos
USC was a bit better than ohio, but they still sounded sloppy and looked the same.
I am not a fan of LSU's band at all, but it was much better than the other two i've mentioned.
Not sure what qualifications you guys are looking for, you would def. need to include schools like Southern, Grambling, FAMU... those schools have have ridiculous power, usually slop drill, and a bunch of people playing DHCs
p.s, boooo UT, UC-davis (doesn't even deserve a boo), A&M, U of I

I also agree, "I am not show what the criteria is you are using to judge these bands" but Grambling State, Southern, Mississippi Valley, Florida A&M along with other schools from the SWAC should not be excluded. As a trumpet player marching band was hard on my chops and always required a recuperation period after the season ended. _________________ YTR-6310ZS
