Actually Arkansas has a decent band, they won the Sudler Trophy not too long ago.

Who hasn't won the Sudler Trophy at this point? The only reason the SOTS hasn't won it is due to the football popularity of other schools.

There are plenty who haven't won and it is not always indicative of football prowess.....

I thought we weren't able to win it since Dr. Long is on the committee for it?

I don't think that is the case, seeing that over half of the selection committee consists of past winners' Band Directors.

I could be wrong, but I think that the key to your statement is that half of the committee consists of past winners. In other words, members of the committee are primarily comprised of directors who have bands associated with the committee. They weren't active members when their bands were selected.

So that means the Sound can't win because Dr. Long is on the committee? That makes no sense.

As I said, I could be wrong, but that has been my understanding in the past. I would call him and ask, but Mrs. Mary Lynn had quintuple bypass surgery and is still in ICU at a Montgomery hospital, so now would not be the best time to call.

It makes sense because if SOTS won it, someone would complain that Dr. Long is biased toward his band.

Well I was in Arkansas and not at all impressed with their band, no matter what award they won.
