  1. Somehow Prosperie blood means you are a beast with on snare
  2. A 10 does not mean perfect, it is the highest score a judge can give. PERIOD. Again, the primary judge of the judge is to RANK then RATE. First priority is to make sure the best corps gets the highest score. Then you assign the actual score using the other corps scores as well to rate them at the appropriate step. WGI and DCI use very similar scoring methods when it comes to rating (granted of course the sheets will have slight differences to account for the activity). A 0.1 to 0.2 difference is very comparable, a 0.3 to 0.4 difference is minor differences, 0.5 to 0.7 is definitive differences and 0.8 or more is significant differences between groups. Jeff basically had SCV, Bluecoats and BD all basically level in content, with SCV just ahead of BD who were just ahead of Bluecoats. When it came to achievement, Jeff obviously saw a bit more differences there to give a wider spread between the three groups.
  3. Also helps have a group like SCV getting that 9.9... Not much else left to give BD when SCV deserves a 9.9 and he thinks BD deserves a 0.1 more.
  4. His name is Anthony, I think he has one more year but don't quote me on that.
  5. Exactly! The right corps won finals night and the right corps won the Stanford!
  6. I guess you don’t understand that I’m one of those people that think SCV has the best percussion program. In reality though, I think Rennick’s program is the best in DCI and have thought that for 10+ years now. He just happens to be at SCV now but I LOVED his Phantom lines back in the day. All I’m saying is that it’s stupid to think SCV can’t get beaten EVER! I prefer Rennick but there’s this Hall of Famer out there going by that name of Scott Johnson who happens to put together a decent percussion program each year too...
  7. It wouldn’t be the first time a corps that was undefeated all season loses in finals night...
  8. SCV had a 0.1 pt lead last night over BD so how can you say that it’s not up for debate? I prefer SCV’s percussion to any other corps, but I’m not naive to think they can’t ever be beaten. Especially by a line like the Blue Devils
  9. Other activities do this and it turns into a “who can get the word out to more people to vote” to decide the winner. There are SOOOOO many people in the stands that support a corps no matter what, and that will skew these “awards” so much. I think Music City won it in Atlanta so...I’m sorry if I’m not sold on this idea.
  10. From this Crown guy, huge congrats on #19!!!
  11. Jeff isn’t judging who is the best percussion of the entire season. He judged who was best TONIGHT! Were you down on that field in front of these lines to back up your words that SCV was obviously the best? Sorry if I side with one of the most, no I’ll go ahead and say THE MOST call it as they see it judge in DCI, who happens to know a thing or two about percussion...
  12. This just turns GE into who has a bigger fan base. We probably would have had Madison in Finals this year then...that shows how much I hate this idea!
  13. Rick is sooo much better at abstract and thought-inducing shows, just look at the shows he creates for Paramount. Keep doing your thing Rick!
  14. I don’t have any words left to describe this group. Tonight was unreal! The last time I’ve seen this group perform with so much freedom but yet so much fire was the encore in 2013. They left it all out on that field tonight and came SOOOO close to proving so many people wrong, that Crown 19 could medal. Thanks for the memories guys! The future sure is bright in Carolina... #7outof10
  15. I’ve only ever watched prelim lots, so that’s all I can vouch for. Boston has used that lot before but it specifically says no warning up there so they only have themselves to blame. IUPUI obviously don’t mind BD warming up there and the city doesn’t care about the spot SCV warms up, but the lot where Boston went is a no no.
  16. I sat in the middle of BDs warmup last year that was in Military Park so not sure what you mean...
  17. Oh I was sure he wish he hadn’t asked that the second it left his mouth. Some people do feel that way though about Spartans this year and just saying that actually they were probably in that gold medal fight with BDB and SCVC just based on how they were beating Gold a few weeks ago. I don’t think many people knew Spartans were in that same boat.
  18. What’s funny is I feel the exact opposite as you. I’m ready for something fresh from Bluecoats cause the last 3-4 years seen the same to me 😂
  19. Blue Devils. I prefer their show design in general but I’m much more analytical and like more esoteric or deeper meaning type of shows than big, bold, in your face drum corps. It’s pretty telling when you tell me to pick only 3 shows to watch again out of the top 6, I’ll pick BD, SCV and Crown...
  20. To be fair to Spartans, BDB and SCVC were roughly 2-3 pts ahead of Gold most of the season including the last show. Spartans were 3 ahead of Gold last night at Semis so there’s no telling who actually would have won between the three. Sure, most likely BDB ONLY because of past history but this was a very good Spartans group who deserved that title!
  21. Sat low close to the 50, honestly didn’t mind most of the electronics except Bluecoats. SOOOOO loud with some individual members mic’d up and it just wasn’t necessary. I get it during some solos but not during ensemble moments. Glad I’m up high tonight so I can actually enjoy the loudness without literally going deaf!
  22. Just a reminder as well, if any of those corps that are trailing get that score they need to tie, then they’ll not just tie but also win since the tie breaker is the higher placement at finals (which they will obviously have since they’re currently trailing)
  23. Trying to explain to someone new to the activity that a “perfect” score isn’t actually a perfect score but just the highest score the judge can give is the single hardest thing to do. Minds are always blown... I agree GE needs a nerf, maybe down to 30-35-35? I don’t care really but it just needs to be less than music and visual.
