Cannot say there will be little suspense around who makes finals this year, but the top 12 corps certainly seem penciled in. 

I think you're right. The scores are tight between 7-12. Anything can happen at this point.

The Music caption saved the Blue Stars tonight, especially Percussion.

Big differences in caption scores from corps to corps and from previous competitions between corps.

I once tracked judges pretty closely and I don't recognize half of these names.

Example of inconsistency:  Crossmen beat the Colts by 0.7 in Percussion in Minneapolis.  Tonight, the Colts beat the Crossmen by 0.9 in percussion.

This stuff must drive the staffs crazy.

Same thing in Georgia.  A little erratic.

B. Crocker judged timing and penalties tonight.

Is this THE B. Crocker?

Have Mandarins beat Crossmen before?

That's a good question. Not that I can recall.

I think it might be a first. 

If so, big congrats to Mandarins. Hope to see them on Saturday night this year.  Program has been making huge strides.

“Saved”

Did we also say that the percussion caption saved Phantom Regiment in 2008?
