Some high scores this year. Cadets potentially on track for highest 9th place score, we'll see.

And also Oregon Crusaders are inactive this year, which opened up a third Semifinals spot.

Glad somebody mentioned this.  I was thinking this last night.

One could argue that Battalion would be in this mix too were they to have come to Indy based on West Coast scores.  But yeah, you don't come, you don't come.

If BD cracks the 98 barrier, it will be the 15th time they have scored 98 or higher in a season. Every other corps in world class history have scored 98 or higher 14 times........COMBINED.

this got me wondering what placements are missing from Cadets, Cavies, and Crown. They've been in the all the top spots, but in the 70's Cadets and Cavies were in and out and had several lower placements. I would think Crown also has in their earlier years in finals.

Someone mentions 8th place for Cadets.

yes with the cadets 9th place finish they now have only the 8th place spot to achieve the complete set of all 12 places.

it is interesting to compare just 4 years ago when the bluecoats achieved this accomplishment and joined Madison as the only 2 having placed in all 12 spots they were getting that final spot by winning their first championship and completing th climb to the top of the activity they started many years ago.

in contrast by placing 12th this year to achieve this collection of all 12 placements Phantom Regiment continues a downward slide which brought them an 11th and 12th place finish over the past 2 seasons. 

So for the Bluecoats it was a joyous occasion and just one more achievement to celebrate in a year full of achievements, and for Phantom Regiment it is something that they probably wished they had not achieved.

Thru the first 20 years of this century, BD has cracked the 97 scoring barrier 17 times. Next closest corps is Cavaliers with 9 this century.
