To those who have commented on the great job the Pep Band does you are 1000% correct.

Wife and I have visited a number of the CAA and OOC arenas the last couple of years watching the Lady Dukes and everyone other schools Pep Bands are just plain an embarrassment. Most are very small and only play some music. None engage the fans and team like the Dukes do!!! When they are not playing they are sitting on their hands or looking at their phones. We are so fortunate to have Chad and the Pep Band as the most energetic, enthusiastic ROOTERS that one can imagine!! As a parent of two former MRD's/one Pep Band member I might be a bit biased but I do not think so!!!

Go Dukes!!

I watched some other games this year and I think there are a few pep bands in VA that are trying to emulate ours. When I lived in Richmond I attended some VCU games and I have to say their pep band is pretty darn good. Not nearly as loud as ours but they can rock the Siegel Center and they have a great sound. Both George Mason and GW seem to be trying to emulate us but don't have the numbers, however they do a pretty creditable job with what they have.

VCU has been doing what they do for the last 10 to 12 years. They don't quite sound as good, but they bring boatloads of energy.

With all due respect to the George Mason pep band leader, that group sounds like a big bag of trash. They have 1 million unique instruments and vocalists, but they sound pretty awful. Doc Nix does a great job marketing the group and they get lots of love playing interesting songs. In the end though, the green machine is a bad cover band.

FWIW, Michigan ended Kenny Brooks' Hokies WNIT run today with a 80-62 win in Ann Arbor. Good first season for Brooks. He's a winner and will do well in Blacksburg. Just give him some time. Good luck to him. Always great to see a Dukes Alum do well (except when they play JMU of course).
