DCI World Champs Semi Finals - Aug 10, 2018

They sneaked into Finals in 2012, missed the cut in 2013, almost missed in 2014 due to a penalty from their drumline warming up in an illegal area, and almost missed again in 2015 due to a late start stemming from electronics problems. The last 2 years, they've finished solidly within the Top 12 (10th in 2016 and 11th in 2017).

Hopefully this year they will not pull a 2014 or 2015 and ALMOST miss Finals due to a penalty.

2014 and 2015 is what I was thinking of.  Twice in a row it was like "oh gosh...no not a penalty that takes them out, that would hurt so bad."

The Cadets will be on fire tonight. And their score will stay the same or drop. Slotting in DCI is real.

It would be bittersweet for Spirit to bump the XMen out of Finals given their connection. All the best to both Corps!

This. It seems particularly cruel for it to be THESE two corps fighting for that last spot.  It'd be nice to be able to see both the delta and the Maltese cross at retreat from each other again.

I could see bloo overtaking 2nd. It won't be tonight but I can see the gap between these two decreasing to about .400 to .450.

 

Bd: 96.250

Bloo 95.850

 

Then at finals bd would have to put out a run that isn't their best which would speak against their consistency in the last 11 years while bloo would have to put on the show of their lives which is possible considering what I saw and heard last night. BD got 3rd in visual analysis and proficiency which is weird but if it stays true we are in for a real dog fight. bloo v cadets from 2014? Maybe.

 

Finals

Bloo 96.325

BD 96.312

 

Because of the low 2nd and 3rd place scores SCV could pop a 98.5 plus out of nowhere. Who knows but definitely a possibility.

The major difference on BD vs Bloo scores will come down to Percussion.

I know i will get blasted for this but the panel is a pro BD panel so I wouldn't be surprised to seem them closer to SCV tonight and further from Bloo.

This is sooo true!!  It would be fantastic to see both on the field together at retreat, maybe 2019!!  So proud of SOA this year. They really surprised a lot of us, in a good way.

I see Boston moving ahead of Crown much more likely than Boston moving down

Cavies are under BAC by 0.185  and has beaten BAC twice in the last 10 days. Crown is still 1.4 ahead of BAC and hasn’t lost to BAC all season.

BAC is in Trouble!!!!!

There’d be a revolt but based on last nights results, it could be possible that Mandarins are vulnerable as well. The 10-12/10-13 range was very tight.
