2015 Predictions!

Post by chadwick » Thu Jun 04, 2015 7:48 am

Time to take a stab at predicting final placements for 2015! Who will make Finals? Who will just miss it? What Open Class corps will make Semi-Finals this year?

1. Bluecoats (just have a feeling!)
2. Blue Devils
3. The Cadets
4. Carolina Crown
5. The Cavaliers
6. Santa Clara Vanguard
7. Phantom Regiment
8. Madison Scouts
9. Blue Knights
10. Boston Crusaders
11. Crossmen
12. Troopers

Semis Placements Below:
13. Blue Stars
14. Colts
15. Spirit of Atlanta (I expect a much improved corps and program from them this year, but to jump back in Finals may be asking too much)
16. Oregon Crusaders
17. Blue Devils B
18. The Academy
19. Pacific Crest
20. Vanguard Cadets
21. Jersey Surf
22. Mandarins
23. Cascades
24. Pioneer
25. Genesis

I've been watching clips of the Cadets ( I'm an alum) and they seem quite ready this year!

No one else willing to take a stab at 2015 predictions??


What else do you expect/hope to see this season?

I hope SOA can't get their groove back this season. I don't expect them to make Finals as that is a lot of ground to make up in one year, but I hope they have a more engaging/thrilling production that generates excitement from fans rather than as much criticism as last season.

I also hope to be as wowed this season as I was last. It is weird how when the 2014 season started I was underwhelmed with what I was seeing in YouTube clips and show reviews. However, by season's end I was enjoying and impressed by just about every show out there even beyond 12th place. I was particularly impressed at the level of competitiveness from the Open Class corps.

I'm curious to see what corps turns heads this year - a corps that no one is talking about much during the off season that comes on hard and really impresses and entertains us this year. Will it be The Academy? Pacific Crest? Colts? Troopers?

Hello all....
I would love to see a shake up in the 6-12 positions.....maybe having some unexpected corps come out of no where and bust up the top 5.

Welcome back!!!


I agree, I would love to see some shake up in positions across the board really. I don't blame the judges for the stagnant/expected placements each year, corps are just very consistent with the talent they get I guess. This year, I think Blue Knights are poised to continue their movement up the ranks and wouldn't be surprised to see them scoring in line with the corps just ahead of them. I also wouldn't be surprised to see some movement from Crossmen and Oregon Crusaders this year.

4. Blue Devils
I honestly think these could be in reverse order just as easily.... So damn impressive.
5. Vanguard
6. Cavaliers
7. Phantom (I just want something to happen with this show..tuff yr, this could be 9th)
8. Blue Knights ( who knows when we see all... It looks too cramped at the moment)
9. Crossmen (could pass BK)
10. Madison Scouts
11. BAC. (Hate that I have them so low)
12. trooper

Perc. Cadets
