  2. U of I Results

    That... is one heck of a departure from just a few years ago. Especially when U of I still used the Olympic judging. Then again, a "few years" is relative and I feel old. Honestly, however, looking at Indy results compared to ISU, there really isn't much that seems off.
  3. Indy Super Regional Predictions

    Really good way to end the season for Lincoln-Way. Too bad they aren't going to GNats this year. Same goes for Lockport and O'Fallon.
  4. Indy Super Regional Predictions

    Marian not in finals... Hope they can really clean up over the next few weeks, I'd hate to have no Illinois band in GNats finals.
  5. ISU Results

    The gap between 2nd and 3rd is... surprising.

    Except for over-valuing John Hersey, I'm pretty proud of myself lol.

    I was tossing that around, but the ending is just not there yet, which is no surprise. Those top 3 will be close for sure.
  8. Downers Grove Results

    They did just start competing a few years ago. The more competitive bands Illinois has, the better, especially for those Chicago public schools. So many students to bring into the world of marching. I feel like the overall Illinois level is up from where it was a a decade ago, so it's good to see.

    I'll go ahead and post my personal placements after watching finals. I'm probably wrong in several spots lol. Lincoln-Way Marian Catholic Lockport John Hersey Prospect VJA Romeoville Morton Edwardsville Plainfield North HD Jacobs Galesburg Bloomington IVC
  10. ISU Results

    This was definitely my favorite Lincoln-Way show since Blue Cathedral (LWE 2010). I didn't want it to end
  11. ISU Results

    If I'm being honest, I didn't expect HD Jacobs, but I didn't get a chance to watch their prelim performance. After seeing the finals performance, however, they were quite clean and deserved to be there.
  12. ISU Results

    This wouldn't be the first time that a finals berth or two seemed odd at ISU. We'll have to wait and see what the scores show point spread wise.

  14. BOA St Louis Super Regional

    Not entirely surprising.
