  1. Last decade plus another 3 🙂 I LOVE each of these shows except for two. 2005 and 2018. Only two in 40 years that didn't quite connect for me. 2010s: 1. 2014 2. 2019 3. 2010 (!!) 4. 2017 5. 2015 6. 2012 7. 2016 8. 2011 9. 2013 10. 2018 2000s: 1. 2003 2. 2009 3. 2007 4. 2004 5. 2001 6. 2006 7. 2000 8. 2008 (robbed) . 🙂 9. 2002 10. 2005 1990s: 1. 1990 (!!!) 2. 1994 3. 1997 4. 1996 5. 1999 6. 1991 (!!) 7. 1992 8. 1993 9. 1998 10. 1995 1980s: 1. 1982 (!!) 2. 1986 3. 1984 (.1 away....) 4. 1980 5. 1985 6. 1988 (robbed) 🙂 7. 1983 8. 1987 9. 1981 10. 1989
  2. "Drum line needs a total overhaul and needs to contribute"???!?!?! You mean that 3rd place drumline?? What a silly statement. Insults the wonderful talent and performance of this group. Bluecoats need to keep doing what they are doing. Not emulate the Blue Devils. I was at Finals in 2016. As a BD homer, I knew Bloo had it, all three nights. Stay on the path you're on!
  3. Of course! Some apparently more than others. That's why spreads change ... and even "flip" in captions over the course of the season.
  4. Well when you put it THAT way ..... 😂 What's more impressive to me: Of those 29 "losses", 19 were medalists (2 or 3), 10 were silver medalists.
  5. For me, a highlight of the season is reading your review day after Finals. You’re the best reviewer in the business 😉 Thank you
  6. And ... BD improved significantly since Atlanta. Cleaned their movement. Refined their ensemble sets and structure. Added visual “accents”/feature to the show. Guard cleans/adds. Chumley noticed, and judged that growth vs BC and others accordingly. Why else would he “flip” from July 20-something until now? Historical data is certainly relevant. But the farther back you go in history (in this case a season) the less reliable you get. Corps’ performance level and show growth/moves/adds/changes factor in. Here’s the thing ... you mentioned being off by 1 point is impressive given your model was 99% accurate. But your same data will tell you that BD and BC were within .5 or less .... and .2x or less in the final few weeks... all season. So calling a 1 point gap for Finals, statistically, is waaaay off.
  7. And let’s bring Finals back to California to kick off the popularity score caption! 🤔
  8. I get it ... but isn’t part of the story tonight that BD closed the GE gap with BC over the past two weeks?
  9. The other 3 GE judges agreed that BD had closed the gap on GE ...
  10. So where does the kids’ achievement and performance level come into play? BD showed major improvement all season. I saw them early on in CA. SCV was clearly better. Interesting note — for that 7/22 — both GE judges “flipped”: Stone in Finals and Dillon in Semis. 🤔
  11. I was being ... polite. I had enough of the “panel is stacked for Bluecoats ... Bluecoats are going to win going away”. Come on. It was going to be super close. And BD on finals night = clutch.
