  2. How is Hebron above Leander if Leander beat them in San Antonio?

    1. Because Hebron's 3rd place finish at Plano behind #1 ranked Flower Mound and #11 ranked Marcus carries more weight than Leander's second place finish at Austin behind #14 Vandegrift. The DFW regionals are usually more competitive so they carry more weight. Also Hebron ranked a good bit higher than Leander at the State Marching Contest.

      You might also want to ask why Cedar Park is still ranked 8th nationally when they were 9th at San Antonio. It's not just about one contest. Non-BOA contests and even previous years seem to be taken into account as well (Hebron also did extremely well at Nats in 2015)...though with less weight as time goes on.

    2. I still feel like head to head wins should have the most weight, but I guess I see where you're coming from.

    3. Nonsense about the DFW regionals being more competitive than Austin. Austin has plenty of powerhouse programs on its own, and then San Antonio is added to the mix. DFW is very good, but top heavy, and not as deep as Austin/Central Texas.

  3. I know it's very early in the season but how do you rank bands that hasn't gone to competition yet?

    1. This question is asked year after year, but they are ranked off of bits of information that comes in from the people that work with these bands and also some recordings of runs that may be out already.

    1. you might also want to ask why they make finals every single year, somehow they just do very well at all the BOA competitions

    2. Marian Catholic used to be like Broken Arrow. Making 1st in finals at Grand Nationals. But they've slowly started going down, but are still really good.

  5. Wow I giant mason drop. I would have still kept them above homestead because they had a higher score overall in prelims without the penalty. This was still higher than either score from homestead

    1. It’s mostly because other bands did much better in other prelims. They aren’t all the same but 5 point differences do make a large difference

  8. Last year’s results shouldn’t have any bearing. Senior classes graduate. Every year is different.

  10. Not really sure how BA is ranked above Flower Mound. I understand BA has a history of excellence but the show this year is a trainwreck

    1. They wouldn't be ranked higher than Flower Mound but Flower Mound got beat by Hebron so Flowermound dropped from First.

  11. Question: Fort Mill High School (SC) beat Dobyns-Bennett at the Winston Salem regional, how would that affect the top 30 scores? Would FM potentially make it on and DB drop a bit, or will DB just drop a bit? Or nothing at all?
