My 2019 Picks- I don't know.

My 2018 Picks: Posted May 31, 2018

  1. Devils Have a slightly better than good chance to win. If this was a Threepeat year I'd put them in 2nd or 3rd. (2nd) 
  2. SCV, Has a good chance to win. Awesome show last year but, that was last year. Added drill writing god to their staff. Should be good! (1st)
  3. Crown, Has a good chance to win. now the percussion situation fixed. Always great brass, Excellent color guard, and show design god. puts them up there. (4th)
  4. Bluecoats, Have a good chance to win.  Can't wait to see what their brilliant design team come up with this year. Saw It!  BLUECOATS ARE FIYAH! (3rd)
  5. Cavaliers, Has been steadily improving I see them as the 5th C in the Carolina, Concord, Canton, Clara crowd (6th)
  6. Boston, Should be better but, How much better? Top 3 better? (5th)
  7.  Cadets,  After the recent scandal and change of schedule and show restructuring, I have no clue. I'm sure the staff and Alumni will motivate the kids to be their best. Their staff is good enough to pull off something in the top 6. How will the judges react? (7th)
  8. Bk, Very entertaining shows lately. Can they top 5 in captions? (9th)
  9. Phantom, has always been a wait and see corps for me. they can land anywhere 5-10. (11th)
  10. Blue Starsare where BK used to be a couple of years ago, floating between 8 -11 (8th)
  11. Madison,  IMO had the ugliest show in drum corps last year but, it got them back into the finals. (16th)
  12. Crossmen, I thought Xmen were better than their scores showed all last year (12th)
  13. Mandarin, I thought Mandarin should have made finals over Madison ( no hate for Madison ) (10th)
  14. Academy, I always root for Academy to make finals (15th)
  15. Colts, I always root for Academy to make finals (14th)

That’s what we call them when we’re “show ready”.  @Jurassic Lancer

it's so funny I made that typo - I used to call them jokingly the "Blurr Knights" back when they marched those Cadet type drills in the late 80s - they used to fly all over the field

I predict Academy gets very close to finals, doesn't make it, and a lot of people throw their arms up about it. Like the way I did about Mandarins 2017.

Can we get please get back to actual Predictions?  Ok, I will put my money where my mouth is.

 

  1)  BD – BD and SCV neck and neck all season, a toss up!

2       2) SCV – two-peat?

3       3) Boston - squeaks into Bronze at the last minute, when clean

 

4      4) Bluecoats – great show, not clean enough

5      5) Crown – hopefully they have a clear concept

6      6) Cadets – untethered by legacy show design and other issues, let’s see what happens!

7      7) Cavaliers - could be higher

8      8) Blue Stars – show looks intriguing

9     9) Mandarins - momentum

B   10) Blue Knights – hopefully they will come back to us from the ethereal and blow us away

      11) Spirit – welcome back to finals

      12) Colts – welcome back to finals

 

1   13) Crossmen – very good, could be higher

1   14)  Phantom - rebuilding

     15) Madison - rebuilding

1   16) Academy – could be higher!

1   17) Troopers

1   18) Music City

     19) Pacific Crest

2   20) Spartans

2   21) Genesis

2   22) Gold

2   23) Legends

2   24) 7th Regiment

2   25) Cascades

2   26) Southwind
