BD is 2nd in guard at the moment.  19.3 average vs. 19.2 average.  SCV has a 19.08 average.

You caught it before I could edit it, my mistake

VP and GE are also pretty much set in stone. Both will most likely go to SCV.

Wow. If SCV wins the Ott tonight, that will be the first time EVER to solely win High Brass. Their 2 awards were shared ('84/'87). Here's a poser: which corps finished the lowest but still won a competitive caption award? (Spirit was 10th in '87 and won guard - not part of the 100 pts.)

 

I think it's the '82 Bridgemen. 8th place corps, high Percussion.

Well, as many folks remember, Oakland Crusaders won drums in Prelims in 1977 but the corps did not make Finals. BD won drums in Finals that year. Probably the right call on '82 Bridgemen. It would have to be in the tick system. Lowest placement in the "modern" (non-tick) era for a caption winner I think is 2010 Phantom Regiment (won the Sanford but finished 6th).

What if Crown goes all out to win Brass, but visual is compromised. And Boston takes fourth place.
