Scores will be 120 by finals 

percussion scores the last couple days mind numbing 

every year someone says something like this, and every year the scores never get higher than 100.  maybe people should stop saying something is going to happen that is actually impossible.

How can such an obviously talented team at Crown think this plexiglass sheet add value to that show?

@mjoakes is the real champ here

I am very happy for the Crossmen and Spirit results tonight.  I don't know if everyone knows that they are considered "sister corps".  It's been a long time since both made the top 12.  It would be ni

Sure, it’s more relatable I guess, but still fundamentally terribly designed. 

True, but last year there was really nothing they could do to make the design better. Do I think they will improve the design enough to remain a top 12 corps? Wish I could say yes to that with confidence.

Agreed.

They will be 115, tops.

it's a JOKE - but the scores do seem to be rapidly going up

I mean 3 points in 2 days is a ton - normally that jump would happen when a corps adds the closer for the first time or something

Typically 0.3-0.5 pts per day or competition historically

I guess the real question is (if Spirit is the 12 spot) “can they make their show better than Spirit’s?” Probably not. Spirit’s show is designed and performed better, and still has significant things to change with the show.

Oh hmm.  This revitalizes it for me.  The strange declension of words is one of my more fun language games.  Stronkulated.

Years ago in the Eastern Massachusetts circuit, scores did exceed 100.  So it is not impossible.

Will we see a San Antonio reset of sorts?  With fewer shows this year for each corps maybe there is an adjustment happening?

I would expect DCI to put the brakes on after this week if it continues
