I think Cadets, Cavies or Bluecoats can defeat BD this year, not too sure about Crown or Phantom though

Bluecoats are the most likely to get their first finals win of all the corps who've never won. They were incredible last year and I think they're due. Cavaliers will definitely be in the top 3 again and it would be great to see them get another win.

Cadets start out West. Best to catch BD while they're young.

SCV catches BD "young" all the time! :rolleyes: And don't forget you have two....count them....two BD's to deal with this year!

But seriously, watch out for SCV....they are a playah and are lining up some "longevity in battle-tested staff" which is the key for a raid on the top three!

Crown for the first to get the win between them and bluecoats. They have a better idea of what it takes to win and how to design a winning show than bluecoats do. Bluecoats took third once and everyone wants to anoint them the next champion (much like people wanted to do to crown last year). I do think that crown has a little better idea of how to design a championship show. Honestly, I think the corps that really understands design right now that has yet to win is the bluestars. Kevin Ford is a genius and I only see that corps getting better and better.

As for who has the best chance at beating BD, that is The Cavaliers IMO. They had a new (kind of) corps director, a new percussion caption head and lots of new staff in that area, a new battery arranger, a new colorguard caption head, and an entirely new brass staff who had to completely change the brass approach. With all of those new people in place they still improved from 4th in 2009 to 2nd in 2010. Year two for them should only be better.
