I try. The thing is I could really see this happening XD. I edited a bit.
Blue Devils- I just think have been very successful and probably are a safer bet than SCV
SCV- The addition of Gaines, plus its their 50th.
Cadets- Such a storied corps that has fallen for the last few years. I think theyre finally going to pull together a good design this year, and theyre playing Mass. Makes this a no brainer even with staff changes. I think if they had done this last year they would have won a title and they would have theyre staff back for this year.
I think the most reckless is Bloo in 4th, because I have no basis except theyve been too successful. I feel like theyre bound to have a design flop at some point. (I honestly have grown to love Bloo, I just have other corps I prefer to be ahead of them this year)
Crown- Victim of staff changes, but percussion is back on the rise. We'll still have that solid brass line, so they'll stay in the top five.
Cavies- I think with this program they have they could move up into the top five but IDK we'll see
BAC- Holy staff changes, big jump this year. Eventually we'll see a medal. Plus, they have that pit girl again.
BK- I think we're gonna see more solid BK this year, this seems like a safe bet.
Madison- Solid program, and I expect them to be hungry to be back in finals.
Colts- What they have coming is crazy. Get excited.
Blue Stars- Just like Blue Knights are gonna have just another solid show.
Crossmen- The repetoire choices are really solid and I think they gonna be alot more refined than what we saw last year.
Non finalists (not in order):
Troopers- I love them but until they get those uniforms changed we wont be seeing them any higher (even with that monster hornline and battery)
Phantom- Well we all saw that show announcement and it just didn't strike me as incredible. I love Phantom, but I just don't think standard Phantom is gonna do it anymore with what other corps are putting out.
BDB- It just isnt their time yet, I dont have the vibe.
Academy- I love their show, but I don't think it really wows me. But, maybe Im wrong I certainly was last year.
