    Ohio State for me, but back in the day it was whichever Michigan that had Bill Moffit as director. our high school band did a LOT of his patterns in motion stuff and arrangements. His arrangement of our national anthem is still my favorite version........Buck, TVHS 1962-3 to 1967:play::oops:

    Southern University has an incredible Marching Band, and Grambling is very entertaining, but I would be hard pressed to say my favorite, and someone pointed out, it's so hard to judge when you really aren't getting much of a chance to see them, and when you do the audio leaves a lot to be desired. A lot of my son's friends went to Penn State and they were in love with the Marching Band there, so much so that they would even go to watch them rehearse!

    Sorry, I'm new here. I just want to be sure I understood you.

    You're saying that they're all wrong about who their favorite college marching band is?:?:

    Politically correct is not a requirement here, for that matter, correct is not a requirement!
    Logic has no place here, sometimes....
    You'll catch on soon enough, just grab the wave and go!!!

    I've got a couple others since this thread started. Of the big school's, West Virginia has caught my eye. They've got a Youtube video out that shows their Veteran's Day half-time show. It's pretty innovative.
    Of the local school's here, the Univ. of Akron has a good looking, good sounding group. the football program was terrible, but the band was great.......Buck:roll::oops:
