  1. It's also weird how the writer of the article claims not only best, but best in the corps' long history. So this goes beyond just comparing scores and placements, but now we're talking pre-DCI competitions too. "Best" to me is very subjective.
  2. Pre-camps Predictions: Blue Devils Carolina Crown Santa Clara Vanguard Bluecoats Boston Crusaders Cavaliers Blue Knights Cadets Phantom Regiment Blue Stars Mandarins Crossmen
  3. This corps has a lot of stored up potential. Definitely can be over Cadets and within the top 6 area competitively next year with the right design.
  4. They should look at more modern rock or jazzy type of music in my opinion. It would fit them better and it would be refreshing after what I thought was a monotone-ish show in 2017.
  5. Glad to see BAC back in the top 6. Next year should be even funner to watch I think. With the talent likely increasing even moreso and the staff now done with the so called transitional year.
  6. This was fun. Thanks to patrick643 and the others who ran the threads.

  8. Blue Stars beating Phantom in both Visual and Music could mean good things for them at prelims. Cadets are stalling, which could leave the doors open for BK but they'll have to really push it.
  9. Bump! I like this new system, very convenient and organized. Here's to the final week. ____ Sunday - August 6 _______ Drums Along the Mohawk - Rome, NY Corps Score 1 The Cavaliers 92.900 2 Boston Crusaders 91.600 3 Madison Scouts 84.400 4 Mandarins 83.300 5 Troopers 80.000 6 Oregon Crusaders 77.600 7 Pacific Crest 77.000 8 Genesis 75.300 9 Seattle Cascades 72.625 Tour of Champions: Drums Along the Waterfront - Buffalo, NY Corps Score 1 Blue Devils 96.100 2 Santa Clara Vanguard 95.600 3 Carolina Crown 95.000 4 Bluecoats 94.000 5 The Cadets 91.250 6 Blue Knights 88.900 7 Phantom Regiment 87.650 8 Blue Stars 86.900 Monday - August 7 Lake Erie Fanfare - Erie, PA Corps Score 1 Blue Knights 89.300 2 Blue Stars 87.300 3 Madison Scouts 84.750 4 The Academy 83.400 5 Colts 81.800 6 Troopers 80.500 7 Spirit of Atlanta 79.100 8 Jersey Surf 71.000 Tour of Champions - Massillon, OH Corps Score 1 Santa Clara Vanguard 96.100 2 Carolina Crown 95.500 3 Bluecoats 94.500 4 The Cavaliers 93.400 5 Boston Crusaders 92.100 6 The Cadets 91.800 7 Phantom Regiment 88.100 8 Crossmen 87.200
  10. I agree nothing is locked yet for both corps, but Boston 100% does not have a "finished final product" quite yet. The fact you think that's so I think is a compliment to the designers and members. Rumors of some changes still coming, and imo captions still have room to tighten up. Should be exciting to see these 2 corps push on the pedal this last week though.
  11. Placement 1-2: BD and SCV. I think BD takes it. Placement 3-4: Crown and Bluecoats. I think Crown takes 3rd. Placement 5: Cavies seem locked in for 5th, but a surging BAC could threaten that spot. Placement 6-7: BAC and Cadets. I think BAC takes 6th. Placement 8: BK to me seems like the strongest product in the 8-12 region, especially as they strengthen the visual program. Placement 9: Phantom takes 9th, although a surging Xmen or BStars could threaten that spot. Placement 10-11: Xmen and BStars. To me Xmen have the greater product but BStars have the greater room to grow so we'll see if they can pull it off. Placement 12: I think Madison are strong enough to take 12th. Mandarins has the better design but Madison just has a more mature overall corps. If Mandarins sneaks in it'll be a last minute push similar to Crossmen 2012 or BAC 2016.

  14. Sucks not having a more traditional regional. The order of performance is all messed up and corps split between different shows.
  15. That jazz part just never feels right to me, and then the tarp they bring out is just so silly with how they dump their unis and slide it off. This show is so mixed for me, great moments and then questionable moments all smashed together. It's improved though and ending is much better.
