So the only show you connected with was about being stranded, lost and needing help?

I didn't realize she was Norwegian.

Bluecoats - going on after SCV and BD was certainly going to be a challenge, but they rose to the occasion and blew us away. Definitely not a dull moment in this show. Vocalist wasn't as loud as I was

I was at Vanguard's rehearsal today, and the run throughs this afternoon had much more energy and fewer bumps. I think they just had an off night. They seem to be training a new tuba player too, because there was no hole today in rehearsal.

All the corps had to walk nearly a mile to the stadium. It was easier for the FE's to push their stuff 3/4 of a mile to the stadium than try to get there the way DCI wanted them to go.  Add in the heat to the long treks, after swamp tour, and you get tired performers. Should be better next year once the construction is finished and the loading docks are reopened.

That was the difference between 5 and 6. Her axe is well-documented, see, eg. http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?/topic/147302-what-does-deborah-torchia-have-against-the-cavaliers/&page=2.

 

The Cavaliers had a bad run in Atlanta tonight. Let’s be honest. With that being said, Debbie doesn’t often reward a good run either.

This pretty well is the case with the entire fanbase as well I think. Their visual programs in particular leave a lot of people scratching their head, but even then they’re able to do whatever it is they’re doing effectively (whatever that means). Their GE scores certainly seem to reflect that no one is quite sure what to do with BK.

Would it be the same if BD or Coats we’re performing that show, or would it be considered genius ??

I disagree.  Devils show feels uneven.  There are too many abrupt changes in both music and style.  Bluecoats program has some of the best transitions between numbers which gives it more of a complete package.  

I agree with WarriorWay . From a musical and visual standpoint, BD's show is just stronger. BD has a better drill than Bluecoats, a better color guard, and a better concept. I enjoy Bluecoats show, but the props are distracting and they do absolutely nothing interesting with them. I can see why BD is beating them, and I expect that to continue through finals. At the end of the day, Bluecoats will probably get bronze, which is a lot better than their placement last year. From a show perspective, the 2018 show is my least favorite since 2013.

Any news/word/buzz about the SCV tuba hole? Injury related?

Perhaps, but I don't think anything out of the ordinary has to happen for BAC to beat them this year. They have a better show, especially visually, IMO. They will be duking it out until the end.
