Just a tidbit of info that may serve as a benchmark as we approach that fateful day...

BD's spread over SCV tonight in El Dorado = 0.05

Bloo's spread over SCV on July 10 in Ankeny = 0.7

The vocal minority is for BD. Hmmm.

They have an unmatched ability to turn it on when it counts the most, and have probably their best complete package of a show since 2014 this year. 

Bloo MIGHT do it, but they also had a wonderfully immersive theme show last year and couldn't quite seal the deal. Perhaps they have learned from that?

In a just world, Bluecoats.

So probably BD.

Who's winning or who will win?

Right now it's a complete toss up.

In the end, I think Blue Devils take it.

But I'm entirely willing to let the other corps change my mind.

I enjoyed video of SCV's performance in Memphis much more than I had enjoyed them earlier this year. And I can see how they can grow.

Bluecoats in recent years (in my opinion) haven't done enough to enlarge their shows over the course of each season. I fear they'll do that again and be overtaken.

I feel like I've seen this once before. There was another season where I remember Bloo coming out on FIRE early season, but they ultimately plateaued a little too soon. I think it's possible this could happen again and BD clinches it. I voted for BD.

Bloo has a ceiling to this year's show. I don't see where else it can grow/expand/evolve in the next month. SCV has too many obstacles to overcome. BD wins again.

Perhaps. BD may have the bigger upside than Bluecoats. Somehow, though, the Beatles are resonating. I would have thought otherwise. It’s a GE game and everything else is just table dressing. Nope, Bluecoats have figured out the judging sheets better than most. BD’s going to start to have to “compete” against others - not just against themselves.  The tide has turned.

I just find it funny cause i remember a few short years ago, BD and any Devils supporter used to get burned at the stake on DCP for playing to the sheets.

Still do, but they've given the other designers a blueprint for success

I remember a good many posters said this in 2016. How did that turn out?
