Re: Let me get this straight...
Our football team was 2-8 this year and won ONE district game and made the playoffs. They did the same exact thing last year, too. They got a big send off, there were playoff T-Shirts made, town made them feel like heroes, etc. For band, we had to wait until our "year" came up to go to Area marching contest. And, I constantly get to answer questions or hear statements about how "stupid" it is that bands don't get to advance every year like every other UIL activity. I feel at a lost to give them any type of logical explanation and quite frankly, I shouldn't really have to. The fact that I have to explain the philosophy behind this says it all. We really need to quit shooting ourselves and our programs in the foot.
