I am always being surprised and impressed with the quality of the original tunes that the Collegiate A Cappella world is starting to come up with.  I don’t want to jinx it, but I think we’re on the cusp of a sea change.  There will always be room for the hot covers (and the standards like Get Set will never go away), but we’re going to see more and more originals coming out from groups that are really trying to make a name for themselves and define themselves as a group.  It’s an awesome time to be an A Cappella fan!
