07 What is the Sudler trophy? (college marching band)

The Sudler Trophy is an award given annually by the John Philip Sousa
Foundation to a collegiate marching band who is "of particular
excellence and have made outstanding contributions to the American
way of life." Ballots are submitted by directors of four year
schools participating in NCAA football, who list three choices. The Sudler
committee, and representatives of past award winners, select the recipient
from the top three vote getters, or any other band they choose.

As the Sudler trophy cannot be awarded to the same band twice, it should
not be construed as an award to the "Best Band in the Nation"; however, it
is certainly a great honor. The list of recipients are as follows:

1982 University of Michigan
1983 University of Illinois
1984 The Ohio State University
1985 Florida A&M University
1986 University of Texas at Austin
1987 University of Oklahoma
1988 Michigan State University
1989 Kansas University
1990 University of Iowa
1991 Arizona State University
1992 Northwestern University
1993 University of California at Los Angeles
1994 James Madison University
1995 Purdue University
1996 University of Nebraska
1997 West Virginia University
1998 University of Massachusetts
1999 Texas Tech University
2000 University of Georgia
2001 Texas A&M University
