  1. It's official...

    yea no seniors will attend the new schools at the first year after opening. In terms of marching band direction, the assistant director for Central this year, Mr. Steve Nedzel, will be the Music Dept. Chair, and the head Director at West, for the Marching Warriors.
  2. Favorite Pieces

    Shadow Mountain..Frank Erickson Blue Ridge Saga....James Swearingen Light Enternal.......James Swearingen English Suite.........Clare Grundmen
  3. What should we do for reviews at shows?

    Personally I would like to see the detailed reviews of how the staff thought of how each band in each class did, then maybe torwards the end, who they thought would have won the captions and the ranks.
  4. Should we upgrade to Zetaboards?

    I think the upgrade would be better for the site, i think it will help when the marching season starts picking up again

    I am making an update to my earlier prediction: After seeing most of the top bands in my earlier prediction i have my new top 5 ranking bands for finals. 1. Prospect 2. LWE or LWC 4. Lake Park 5. Marian 2 and 3 will be interesting beacuse of the two LW's fighting for the 2nd place. Only reason i have it this way, Marian, is that it is a little early for their show to be at its peak. Lake Park, I think both LWE and possibly LWC to beat LP by the smallest of point values. LWE and LWC, LWC at their show, though I don't know if it was from their judge's biased, but LWc beat LWE in points wise. Not to say that LWE will fall a placement to LWC this year, but I am saying if people are putting LWE up there to be a good canadate to win ISU LWC must be up there also. Prospect, I can see winning, though I have not been able to see their show since Wheeling... Though I think they could very well be one of the few people who could win it. This will be one interesting year for the finals...

    ISU Final Placement Predictions: For this I can't really see one band getting #1 for sure, so i think it would be between LWE, MC, and LP. They all did very well in the competition last year, so i could see any of those stepping up and claiming the #1 position. As for the placements of 4 through 7 i think it could be LWC, Prospect, Morton, or VJA. This too is just based on the competition last year, except for Prospect, as they have not been at ISU in some time. I also think Morton should have gotten higher than 7th last year, so I see them jumping up to one of the top half spots. As for LWC, they are alittle more tricky to place, as their school is splitting next year, this may be enough inspiration to jump up as well, though i can't see them getting any higher than 3rd, but yet again who knows. One other dilema, I can not find where to put LWN...They are a new school, so no one can honestly put them in a placement, unless it is by personal opinions, which all predictions kind of are being this early in the season. I think LWN could be the #8 position, but they could end up being #10+. I will adjust my predictions seeing these bands in action this year. Also, Lemont, they are very good at their shows, although I think with the additions of Prospect and LWN in the mix, they may find themselves in a lower position this year, and maybe not even in finals. My Final note, ofcourse these predictions are all baised upon, in most cases, past preformances, others in just plain guessing. I could be completely off, but I will try to update my predictions as much as I can once I see these bands on the field. My Predictions: 1. LWE 2. LP 3. MC 4. Prospect 5. LWC 6. Morton 7. VJA 8. UT 9. LWN 10. NN 11. Macomb Possible change outs: Lemont/LWN Side note on change outs: who ever is the 2nd place in the class of 3A will be in finals and the 3rd place will not, in my opinion.

    I can't say much about the bands in finals after placement #7 but here are my top 7 picks for ISU Finals 1. Lincoln Way East 2. Prospect 3. Lake Park 4. Marian Catholic 5. Lincoln Way Central 6. Andrew 7. Morton I could also see Lemont, and LWN in finals but alas I don't know where they would be between #8-10+

  25. ISU 2007 2.0

    To respect of the offical predictions to ISU this year, for 1st and 2nd. They have LWE to win a title that they say has not been won by anyone other than MC or LP in the past decade. Well i thought a decade is 10 years and correct me if I am wrong, but LW won ISU in 1999 with their show of Simple Gifts. So why is this not up there? Just curious...
