Waxahachie sounds beyond absolutely fantastic. They have Marcus style clarity, balance, and tone quality, but with more power and drive. The GE level isn't quite up to some others, but purely from a performance perspective, this show is going to be very hard to beat.

As good as Dripping Springs is, I still think Coppell wins this in a sweep. They already sounded fantastic when I heard them in early October, and they tend to peak at around state time. It's going to be hard for any band at this contest to put out the kind of sound that Coppell does.

No band will put out the same sound Coppell does, but that doesn't mean they can't play their own shows cleaner and more musically. If volume were all judges listened to, Coppell would win every contest they go to.

Yes, but this is DMI, where results tend to favor the state bound 5A bands in even numbered years. I think it would take a lot for Coppell to lose. Coppell's sound is also a stronger advantage where they are the lone 5A behemoth in a sea of 4A bands, which is not the case at most contests they attend. That doesn't necessarily mean they're infinitely better than the other bands at this contest, but it puts them more in line with what usually succeeds at this contest.

And to be clear, I was talking about quality and not just quantity in regard to Coppell's sound.

And don't forget the Duncanville moral victory by showing up everyone with their exhibition at the end. :P

I think that Dripping Springs will be first, and Coppell right behind them. Dawson, Waxahachie, Wakeland, and Poteet will be fighting for the next 4 spots depending on how well they preform. I think Dawson is going to do well even though they didnt make finals at LSP because within a week they came back and got really close to beating Friendswood who had won LSP by a 3 point margin...

Why would Coppell be the only 5A band playing at this competition? Where is every other 5A band?

I think that Lamar,Trinity,Midlothian,McKinney,and McKinney Boyd are all 5A.McKinney and McKinney Boyd also made finals in a very difficult Area B competition,so they are emerging 5A programs that certainly should perform well.Midlothian is also a program that is on the rise as well.Should be an excellent contest.

You're correct that all of those are 5A. Midlothian came in sixth at the Area C contest last week. Very respectable, being beaten only by Berkner, Rowlett, Coppel, Duncanville and N Mesquite.

Finals times are random draw times, 10-6 draw for times, then a break, then 5-1 draw times for finals... Not shocked DSHS and Coppell are top 2

Typically not a bunch of movement from 1st-3rd in finals placement, but 4th-10th is where all the movement happens because of the random draw for times... Should be a great finals, wish I lived back in the DFW so I could go
