NOTE: I am a Southern Illinois guy, my knowledge is not as deep for C and N Illinois bands


I will take Lincoln, they have grown considerably over the past few years under Nigel Range. Dwight will take 2nd. I will take Rockford for 3rd


Dunlap and Metamora will run away with this class, I think Dunlap takes this one, but it'll be close. Any of the other bands have a shot at 3rd in my opinion. 


This class is deep, lots of very good groups. I will take University in 1st, Limestone in a very close 2nd, and East Peoria or IVC in 3rd.


Another very good class. Davenport Central is a solid Iowa group. Washington and Rock Island are always solid, and Collinsville is coming north looking for good placement.

I will take Collinsville in 1st, Washington in 2nd, and Davenport Central in 3rd

1A: Tough call here, but I'll go with Dwight as my pick for the class champion

2A: Dunlap with Metamora in second would be my pick here. 

3A: As noted this is a really deep class. All great bands. Limestone is my pick to win the class. Honestly wouldn't be too surprised to see any of the bands in this class place. 

4A: Another strong class all the way through. Bloomington is my pick in this class, but like with 3A a lot in this class is going to ride on where the bands are at in learning their shows. (Overly) Simply put- are they putting a lot on but it's dirty, or are they doing a fairly small chunk of the show but pretty clean. And how developed are their ideas and performance skills.

1A:  Dwight had a good first show last week against similar bands.  They're mybpick


2A: Dunlap will run away with this class.  Metamora and Farmington following suit.


3A:  I think it will be tight.  u-High, Limestone, and UT rounding out top 3.  Hot take: scores will be within 2 points total.


4A:  have only seen Washington of this group.  I'm going to guess Bloomington, RI, then Washington.
