Exactly? Has someone done some scouting of these bands to determine their rank? When sports analysts put out rank expectations it's based on scouting reports, not random thought. What makes TC 15th or Jackson over SU? Surely not based on last year I hope.

Was this list compiled before the Queen City BOB? And how can you rate A&T if they haven't even performed in public yet? I hate rankings especially band rankings and this one really dumb. But thanks for getting the conversation focused on HBCU bands!
