    1. We update the rankings every week just like collegiate sports rankings. Check out this page to see what factors contribute to each group's ranking.

    2. But none of these groups have preformed since November. How can you guys be so sure they're this different?

    3. There is no way of knowing. You have to wait untill the bands start to preform before these become somewhat accurate.

    4. Every band on this list as performed at least once, most groups have performed many more times than that. While football game videos aren't ideal, we can still get an idea of where each group is at.

    5. There are some groups with no videos out at all.

  2. Good job guys, I think the list looks great. I can tell you're using Gloriousgoo's formula which brings in more objectivity to the rankings. Thanks for keeping up with the site.

  3. I'm liking Franklin a lot. They blew me away last year at Grand Nats, and they did again at the Clarksville regional this year.

  4. Why is O'Fallon not on top of Castle in the next 10? Also why is Franklin still on top of Castle and O'Fallon?

  5. Who cares what school I'm from? EP or RHS? It doesn't matter. Either way, I just want to say the both of our bands work hard as a whole and represent Minnesota with a lot of pride. But, when we clash like this, does it do anyone any good? Putting down other bands to make you and your band no matter what school your from feel better? No. Does it represent Minnesota good? No. Will it always be flowers and sunshine? No. But that's how life is. Win or lose we ALL put are best foot forward and improve. What happend to the bands at YIM? What happened to the bands who highfived each other before and after their performances? Is it all gone because one tiny thing might not have gone your way? It's not only disrespecting your school, and state, but it's disrespecting YOU. Where's your EP/RHS pride? Show some respect to each other. And EP, I hope you do amazing at Nationals and represent Minnesota with some class.
