Hostrauser's DCI Power Rankings - Week 4 (7/15)

Recommended Posts

Much like the bowl of petunias falling from a great height, the netizens of DCP see the another Hostrauser Power Rankings thread and think, "oh no, not again."

Take these with a grain of salt, and remember the cardinal rule of my rankings: if you disagree with me you're wrong and your corps is actually very bad.

I think the line for Semis is quite reasonable as Gold, Legends and the Spartans have all been recently featured and Jersey Surf is having a nice season. Rough projection for the Cascades though.

Looks good to me! Top 3 extremely tight. Will be extremely interesting to see BD join in on the head to head fun this week

Kudos for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference, which has me thinking of what a drum corps Hitchhiker's show might be like.

EVERYONE has a chance. Don't you recall those fantasy DCP threads whereby homers get their Corps into Finals by concocting outrageous scenarios?

But I hope you're right!

At 2003 prelims, Spirit was 14th, 1.55 points behind the 12th-place Blue Knights. The following night at Semis, Spirit passed Blue Knights and Glassmen to claim the 12th spot in finals by a scant .15 point. So yes, never say never, and it's not over until the fat lady sings!

So it's been over since 1992 Finals, is what you're saying? 🤔

Oh VK.  I do miss the no holds barred approach to "what crazy thing is going to happen next?" shows you did.

Everything was thrown into that show except the kitchen sink. Wait... was there a sink and I just missed it?

Biggest crowd reaction for a 10th place show in DCI history.
