    I would like to know why Tennessee State’s video was not posted on your site? You said you had all 8 but there is only 7 band videos listed. Not Fair at all.

    I love Jackson State Sonic Boom…but my vote is for Lincoln, smallest of all the bands only been around since 06, I’m always for the underdog

    Alabama A and M Marching Maroon and White Band showed up and showed out. They showed versatility by playing both sides of the field. They woke a lot of people up who have been hating on them. GO MMW!!!!!!!!!!! Also the Dancing Dolls showed out I am a huge supporter because it is nice to see young ladies do an awesome job without provocative dance moves. Coach D you are a great example for all young ladies wanting to dance.

    Hey Tenn State Crap band fans stop your whinning Steve Wonder has seen that lame band’s video. Alcorn drills were sloppy, the little girls from DD4L outdanced their dancers, it was plain for everyone at the dome this band is not ready for prime time and should have stayed in the country where they belong. The winners JSU, BCU, PVAMU, Bama A and M, SCSU, LU, TSU, ASU

      Yea man you are correct with your assessment TSU folks whin more than SU folks they either can not read or blind as a bat that crap bands video was included like the others and finally someone else agrees with me that alcorn has a hideous band

    The BOOM hands down. The J5 were AWESOME and the band was Great!!! Fired up J State!!!!

    Alabama A&M Marching Maroon & White had the best show and the best sound! Loudness doesn’t constitute the best show; NOT AT ALL!! Standing ovation and hand claps for Carlton Wright and his staff! I liked Lincoln University too! They did a great job their first time at HBOB! Keep up the hard work! Just don’t let your announcer sing anymore! And yes, WRITER, you left out Tennessee State from the article up top and no video. Not cool!

    JSU HANDS DOWN! Their show was cleaner and the music was on point and Chris! Sorry but the “BOOM” won this one!
