    Do you have the 4-6A results?
  4. FINAL U of I PREDICTION

    CLASS 2A COMPETITION Illinois Valley Central Effingham Prarie Central CLASS 3A COMPETITION Mahomet-Seymour Monticello Rochelle Township CLASS 1A COMPETITION Wateska Community Rushville-Industry Sullivan SMALL SCHOOLS CHAMPION: Mahomet-Seymour CLASS 5A COMPETITION Granite City Plainfield North Batavia CLASS 6A COMPETITION Downers Grove South Normal Minooka Community CLASS 4A COMPETITION Galesburg Bloomington Washington Community LARGE SCHOOL CHAMPION: I am conflicted here. For the first time in a long time ALL of these first place bands have a good chance to win grand champion. My gut says Granite City, but then you see Downers Grove South and Galesburg in the other top spots who can certainly upset Granite City. Then you look beyond first place and see Plainfield North who can upset Granite City and win Grand Champion and also Normal and Bloomington in the second spots who could win first and take Grand Champion. If I had to rank them out it would look something like this; Granite City Plainfield North Downers Grove South Galesburg Bloomington Normal These 6 bands will probably (pending nice weather and good performances) dominate the large school championship. ANY of these 6 could win the Governors Trophy in my opinion.
  5. ISU Results

    To be honest though, that’s one of the things out of student control. If they love marching band they won’t quit because of a consolation they didn’t get to make the final decision on. They did great and they deserved the win. And by they I mean the students did great and the students deserved the win.
  6. ISU Results

    Every one of these finalist band Fromm Lincoln-Way through IVC represents Illinois Marching Band with the utmost talent and professionalism. All 14 finalist are elite and exception in many of the same but also in different ways. Congratulations to the top three of course but also the bottom three and everyone in between on an excellent performance in Finals!
  7. FINAL ISU PREDICTION

    I’d say the two most interesting match ups in Prelims are; Lincoln-Way and Lockport, both bands are very good and I expect both to play and match their tails off. I still expect Lincoln-Way to win that class but this is the more balanced and closer of the two match-ups I’m talking about. The second is Marian Catholic and Galesburg. The overall consensus that I’ve seen is Galesburg gets second to Marian Catholic but you can help to look at how clean Galesburg was according to the scores visually at Normal. Again Marian will likely win but, by how much?
  8. Lincoln way invitational results

    Personally I’m not a fan of Marians show. Very artistically interesting but I’m not a fan.

  10. Updated Normal MB Invitational prediction (With OFFICIAL schedule)

    Class 1A: Providence Catholic is just a well rounded program. Capable of upsetting bands one even two classes higher than them, I expect them to win class 1A solidly on Saturday. Class 2A: St. Joseph-Ogden is my guess. I don’t know much about the bands in this class but I know I’ve seen St. Joseph-Ogden do pretty good from time to time. Watch Coal City as another contender. Class 3A: Pekin Community is my pick. They are solid. I think it will be very close between them and PBL but I see Pekin coming out on top at the end of it. Class 4A: Dunlap is my pick. East Peoria and IVC next in line respectively. Class 5A: I expect Galesburg to win by quite a bit here. Looks like they probably wanted to balance classes as typically we would have Galesburg up in 6A. Nonetheless they’re my pick for 5A Class 6A: Morton will probably win. Mahomet-Seymour upset Washington at EIU but that goes without saying when you’re up against Morton as opposed to Washington. Grand Champion: Morton. Is it impossible for Galesburg to pull it off? No. But Morton is just at that level where you expect a win from them. Even up against Illinois powerhouses like Galesburg and Mahoney-Seymour, Morton still ranks superior when it comes down to the numbers.

    Bumping this so the mods get it on the festival page and so everyone can see the schedule.
  13. LincolnWay invitational Predictions

    1A my bets are on Herscher. They’ve had a rather successful season. Providence will probably provides some well rounded competition though. 2A my pick is Batavia. I think it will be by a pretty solid margin here. Good band, great musicians, and a solid likelihood to win this class. 3A my pick is Marian Catholic. Is will be close and the next two by my predictions are Lockport and Joliet West respectively. scores will be close between top two. I’m excited to see the outcome. Grand Champion: Marian Catholic (or Lockport) whichever one pulls out on top in Class 3A.

  15. EIU Panther Marching Band Festival - Oct 5

    Either way, if this is correct, quite the heart breaker for Granite.
