15 Who is the best marching band? (college marching band)

Please, please, please don't ask. EVERYBODY thinks their band is the
best. (Or at least they should; if you don't think your band is the best,
feel free to post and ask for advice on how to make it better.) The fact
of the matter is, the variety of marching styles and musical repertoires,
and the impossibility of a widespread head-to-head competition makes such
a judgement impossible in a public forum. Ergo, all discussions of this
sort inevitably end in flames. In fact, r.a.m.b.c. has its own version
of Godwin's Rule (the rule that a discussion on Usenet is over when one
side compares the other to the Nazis): McClurg's Rule, which states that a
"Which band is best?" discussion is over when it denigrates into USC
(University of Southern California)-bashing.
