Comments on the recap:

It looks like my idea that the top 7 are very crowded isn't true after all. The judges really do seem to prefer the Blue Devils by a healthy margin over Santa Clara across the board. It doesn't seem at this point that the Blue Devils will fall out of the top 4. It also seems unlikely to me that the Blue Coats could catch Santa Clara-- they are down 1.1 in the visual caption. The Blue Coats strong points are brass and drum tech--and there is no room to build any kind of margin in those captions that would make up for their what they are losing in the visual caption. For Blue Coats fans, (me), its exciting to see them score so well in drum tech--they've got a shot to win that caption (along w/ several other lines).

I wish I could go see some of this weekend's action. There is some drama building as we see some mixture of the east and west tours in the opening DCI events Saturday.
