Pride is used in a lot of bands. gct isn't the only band using pride. Besides not only are we The Paragould PRIDE, we're also "Paragould's Best in Sight & Sound"

Please, ask anyone in Paragould Arkansas which schools band is better and they will most definitely probably say Tech's. Danny Davis is an ass but he knows how to get his band where they are amazing.

gct USED to be the better band in Paragould. Mr. Reely and Mr. Hogard are nothing compared to the new directors. Fresh ideas and great teaching! We all love the new directors and can't wait for the tech game! Then we'll see who's the better band. Mr. Davis is an old band director with old ideas.

Paragould residents should be grateful to have two very good music programs. Davis has a good thing going at GCT, and Reely and Hogard built the Paragould program up to be as large and successful as it has been in recent years.

For as little money that is funneled to the band programs (In comparison to schools in Central Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas) both schools in Paragould have been very successful.

Most definitely probably? You don't sound too sure.

I was in band with Paragould's current director. He definitely knows what he is doing and he will turn the kids into an excellent band. I can't wait for the Tech game either. When I was in school that was the only game that mattered and usually it was the only one we won. lol

I agree. I watched the band practice the other day and they sound pretty good. I talked to Richie for awhile and he said that they were just learning and that I should come see them at the games. They will be something to see when it all comes together for them.

Ok.....I think it's just a little retarded that yall are gonne steel our slogan, pretty much. YES....it's used by many, but do you honestly think that your new band directors only did it because "everyone uses it"? That's a bunch of bull crap, Paragould! GCT has always given you guys a run for your money, and sometimes old is wise, and not just old. Thank you very much! Danny Davis is an amazing band director, no matter how hard he works us, and YOU will never know it, and cannot argue with it! The only thing you can do is HOPE that you can live up to PRIDE standards. GCT- PRIDE!

How can you say Mr. Reely and Mr. Hogard are nothing compared to the new directors? You obviously do NOT know what you are talking about. They were (and still are) great directors! They built the Paragould band from scratch. Everyone in the band would give up anything to have them back. What you are not aware of is how many band students are going to (and are thinking about) quiting this year. I talk with my fellow band students everyday and they all feel the same way.

Ok, we are NOT looking for an arguement. I love GCT's band and everyone I've met from GCT is awesome. You guys have a right to be mad at us, but don't take it out on our band, please. We had no say in it, it was all the director's idea. Everyone I've talked to at PHS is just as mad as you guys. We loved having the name "Ram Band", because we are Rams and we love our mascot. Speaking for our band though, I'm sorry our directors have caused such a fuss over an avoidable subject.

Who are you?? You are making our band look like we are a bunch of jerks. Due to your incompetence, I'm guessing you are a freshman. Granted, I think we have been the better band, but I'm not going to rub it in Tech's faces. Besides if we went to Tech we'd be saying that GCT has the better band, so honestly we are amounting to nothing. We all have our own opinions, so why can't we just let each other be?

*By the way it is spelled "think" not "thank".

Ummmmm.....LOOK! I'm not a big enough jerk to tell you who I "thank" has the better band. I'm just saying that if YOU guys are the band, YOU obviously have a say in what to call yourselves. It's stupid to let new ideas go too far, ya know? I am a little ticked that your new directors would go that far with it....I've never had a problem with Paragould at all. I have a bunch of friends from Paragould band!.....but there are ALOT of your band kids taking this way too far with comments about Tech band, our band director, AND your old band directors! Do you see that from us?
