Another VERY VERY early prediction (ISU)

Recommended Posts

I wanted to insert my opinion on the other Illinois "State" competition, which is at Illinois State University. Again I will emphasize, as I did in my U of I prediction these are early and will change as the season evolves. 

I will predict the places in performance order, remember those who win first place in EACH class will automatically win a finals spot and then the next 8 with the highest scores in any given class will qualify for finals. I will not predict scores rather predict what bands have the strength (judged by past history) to qualify for finals and in what order they will finish.

This may not be quite right (but I'm not certain).  The band who wins first place in each class automatically qualifies finals.  But then it gets a little complicated.  For Class 1A to 4A, the next three highest scores qualifies for finals, so a total of seven from 1A to 4A. For Class 5A and 6A, the next five highest scores (after the two first place bands) for those two classes qualifies for finals, so a total of 14.

The next highest scores in any given class, so the next highest scores in ALL preliminary performances is how I understand it to be. I may be wrong but I believe that’s how it goes.

This is correct, ISU has used this since switching from the class winners + remaining top 10 that weren't already included. They also switched from an all day judges panel that switches captions for finals to one set for 1A-4A and one set for 5A-6A/Finals.
