    Central Hardin and GRC are my top 2. Also wouldn't mind seeing Russel County get it back together a little bit.

    I would take this down. Posting a public reveal is one thing and that's not what this is. Let's be respectful of the programs. I don't believe this link was for the public.

    Corona Talk

    I don't think any reasonable person wants to go from zero to 100%, or 'normal' instantly Key word here being reasonable lol. It's one thing I find so frustrating is that most reasonable people, which I truly believe about 90% of our country is, get drowned out and shouted down by the 10% on the extremes of both parties and they are the only ones who really get the spotlight now while the rest of us sit back and try to figure out how to go about our business the best way possible for all involved. It's like the meme says, I never realized how many infectious disease experts, constitutional lawyers, economists experts were actually on my friends list lol. Mistakes have been made along the way obviously but I truly believe most of the states have tried to handle things the best way they know how with a situation we've never seen in my lifetime. Probably naive of me, but I would rather try and see the good and remain positive and yes even question some things as opposed to only believing that everything is a conspiracy and that everyone trying to handle this right now is just out to take all my rights or just get everybody killed. Keeping everything locked down isn't sustainable just as opening completely up bc Karen is tired of having her constitutional right to get a haircut trampled on. I miss the days of compromise and happy mediums before the onslaught of social media and 24 hour news hijacked it. Okay, rant over lol. I know where I work we are putting plans place to slowly go back to normal as possible beginning May 1 with several precautions in place that will most likely remain throughout the summer. It's the happy medium I spoke of to get business moving again BUT still being mindful of the danger right now. As always, stay safe everyone and let me leave you with is: if the article you are reading as a "reliable" source has the words BOOM or BOMBSHELL in the headline, just keep scrolling, nothing good ever comes from those😂 I appreciate the articles that have been linked on this thread bc they are actually good!

    Corona Talk

    So many we all know in person and I'm sure more here on the forums all affected by the current situation and makes me sad. I truly hope everyone is staying safe and is able to get the financial help needed. I'm fortunate to still be working( even though I can honestly say it's a little scary dealing with patients and having to be practically in their face) but my husband was had to file for unemployment. Took forever bc he is an independent contractor but it was finally approved Thursday after a month. So from the bottom of my heart to all here who are going through it just know you're not alone. It's been one of the main things to help us stay positive knowing so many face the problems. The forums becoming active again as of late honestly has helped too in making me feel some normalcy even with all the bickering we do so thank you. Stay safe everyone 😷

    2020 Finals Predictions

    4A was the class I probably disagreed with the most last year. Tough class though so kudos to all thos programs but I would have had Harrison higher than 4th. Everything else was pretty accurate( except for the scores in 5A). My takeaway from last season and what has me excited for certain programs this season is that the class winners last season were good but sort of boring and predictable at this point. I think the best shows and innovation came from our second through fourth place bands. They took more risks and upped their game to try and reinvent themselves for some and for others was a continuation of growth and change we had already been seeing. Much respect to the class winners bc their formulas work and they were great but none of their shows impressed me with the exception of Adair and that wickedly hard musical opener. My predictions are pretty much this...same as last year with the exception of 4A and 5A. Harrison is my pick for the band to watch this season in 4A and the placements will be anyone's guess again. The talk of 5A won't be as much about the Dynamic Duo as it will be about those third through sixth spots. With the return of CH, Easterns ability to go from blah to wow, GRC surprising us all last year, Campbell County growth(although I'm not real jazzed about their upcoming show and music selections) and of course Ryle. 3rd-6th in 5A might be the most fun thing to see this year which is high time from a class that normally went from OMG as you watched the Big 3 perform to Imma go get a snack when the rest performed which is not meant at all as an insult but rather the acknowledgement of these groups really getting it together and improving their programs to make all of 5A fun to watch again.

    2020 Finals Predictions

    Not a beat down just honest critique. If you're new here then you don't yet realize we hold Ryle in pretty high regard and appreciate the program as a whole. It's all subjective so none of us are completely right or wrong. Case in point, I believe NH to be the best band in 5A. They don't have the trophies to back it up but it's what I believe and prefer. I promise you the fact that we are critiquing Ryle so hard is a coming of age moment for that program bc it means we've taken notice. You're coming right along with Lafayette, Dunbar, NH, MC, Estill, Adair, Harrison, bourbon etc on being a band people love to give an opinion on. Welcome to the Thunderdome Ryle😁 looking forward to seeing you all this year.

    2020 Finals Predictions

    I assume they are talking about Ryle? I don't think the original poster was saying ryle would not be in finals just talking about who else may be in it possibly. Ryle will be in finals but placement will be a big question this year probably. I agree that if Eastern gets it right this year they could easily grab the third spot and the return of CH is something people shouldn't be sleeping on if you didn't keep up with them last year regardless of feelings for the director, the kids pushed through. My opinion for Ryle, and it's just my opinion people, is they seemed better than what they were last year bc the rest of the class was so weak behind them. They were better than the previous year but not close to the show they did in 2017 so they have work to do. Dynamic Duo aside, the rest of 5A should be more interesting than it has been in years. Lastly, if they were not referring to Ryle as the band not mentioned then I got nothin lol

    Corona Talk

    I would guess fundraising, or the lack there of, will be a huge factor on many fronts especially deciding which and how many circuits a group chooses to do. $$$ may be what brings certain groups back or cause some of the newer faces who were going to Boa for the first time ever or in several years to just do kmea. I'm staying positive that it all works out! #Ronawontstealmybandjoy

    4A is the only class I could see this happening possibly 3A. Finals scores will be iinteresting for the rest of the classes. Will we see huge gaps or will scores be lower than normal as to not have a 15 point gap between Lafayette and the the 6th place band? Time shall tell

    SMBC 2020 Location

    Agreed. watching the fith and sixth spot band will be like making us sit through 10 unnecessary exhibitions. I guess it's possible that one of the top 4 in any class could just absolutely fall apart and one of these bands sneak into a top 4 finish or maybe even the planet's align just right for a surprise top 4 finish aka Dunbar last season but it's highly unlikely. I suppose kmea will just have to implode on its self before meaningful changes will take root like keeping finals elite and competitive instead of sprinkled with honorable mentions.

    Hoping Lafayette keeps their momentum going from last year and really makes a statement at GN. You all know I'm not a huge fan of their style but I am a huge fan a great bands and those kids have it. adding MC to a boa and another one of our great 4A bands I've heard rumored to be going will definitely make for some fine representation of our State. Very proud of our programs here. Btw...smbc at UK is cool with me just due to it being closer lol.
