Lol. I won't argue, as I haven't seen much in terms of the head to head competitions. I will say though that last year we tried to catch as much as we could in Baltimore, and I never saw any West Point Cadets act less than respectfully, win or lose. Likewise, the Mids maintained a tremendous amount of class.You asked about the drumline competition, which is something "unofficial" and doesn't actually appear on any of the published schedules. Last year in Baltimore, it was held after march-on in the concourse immediately behind where D&B was seated in the stadium. It's awesome, especially if your Mid is on the drumline. Navy rules in this competition every year. WP plays the same old tired stuff, with no originality or skill required, although their haughty, insolent demeanor would attempt to suggest otherwise.
USNA Band is also professional military band, but USNA also has a Drum & Bugle Corps--Although I appreciate the USMA band (which is basically a professional band), I miss not having a full student/Cadet band,
