Leitzke basically just locked SCV for the Sanford.

I really don’t like that judges scoring mentality

What the hell is a .238 or a .163? That’s just made up numbers management that’s occurred in the last few years.

In 2016, a new rule was passed that allowed judges to score subcaptions using half-tenths for particularly close races in their caption. Because there are four judges in the Music caption at the big shows with two of those judges' scores averaged before being added to the other two (Percussion in 2016-2017 and Music Analysis from 2018 onward), there can be some instances where the score stretches out to four decimal places (.xx25 or .xx75). In order to keep data consistent, DCI rounds such numbers up to the nearest thousandth. Thus, since 2016, we have seen scores ending in .xx3 and .xx8.

The only two things I’m sure of for finals night:

 

1. Blue Devils will win visual

2. Blue Devils won’t win music

But can they get 3rd in music?   That's really all they need to do to pull it out.

Or just some slightly more favorable reads from the GE judges to make the spread closer. On the other hand, one bad performance can easily put Bloo in the driver's seat

Does anybody know?

Do we have the same slate of judges for Semis?  Webb and Gray seemed lowest in the GE caption.

The gap between The Cadets and Mandarins makes as much sense as fat free cream cheese.

Nope, brand new panel for semis and finals

I think they will. The BD homer in me is hoping to see Crown take music, keeping BD and Bloo close in music.

Coats won despite 4th in guard and 4th in percussion. Wow.

Honestly disappointed to see the judges take SCV out of the running. A 3-way race for gold would have been amazing.  Has there ever been one before?
