Any predictions for 2017? I would say that James Madison will at least in the top four, but there might be a little bias in there. I'm trying to be as objective as possible.

IDK the rest just yet. Let me know what you think.

Here's my super early analysis for this contest:

I truly believe that this Regional contest is Dripping Springs' to lose. It's very hard seeing anyone else top them at this competition. Of course, there are several bands attending that definitely can "upset" and beat them but it seems kind of inconceivable, especially on a State Year. Time will tell.

Following Dripping Springs, I believe Sharyland Pioneer or Del Rio are capable runner-ups. State Year for Sharyland Pioneer and I'm sure they'll put out a spectacular show out on the field this coming season. This is the same band that came in second at the 2016 McAllen Regional only to Austin James Bowie. Del Rio's 2016 show was fantastic and I think that'lll continue onto this year. They have a great sound.

Brownsville Hanna and SA Madison round up my Top Five and locks for finals. Both these bands have a good ensemble sound and can play loud and strong.

Finalists Contenders:
Roma, Edinburg Vela, Sharyland, Brownsville Lopez, Hidalgo

Dark Horses:
Edinburg North, Edinburg, Harlingen South, Grulla

This is my Pre-Season Prediction. It is subject to change as the season initiates and unfolds. Thoughts?

Does anyone know dripping springs and/or pioneer's show theme yet? I know there is a specific thread for this but I think it's also relevant to this topic as well.

That's a good list, but I think it might move around a lot during the season once we figure out what each band really has in store.

Just the addition of the McAllen ISD schools to the list:

McAllen HS
McAllen Rowe HS
McAllen Memorial HS

My prediction stays the same. McAllen schools will fall in the 16th-25th range. McAllen ISD has great resources and feeder schools but haven't been too successful in recent years.

Does anyone know when the schedule will be put up for this competition? I know the Austin regional is up, but that competition is also 2 weeks earlier.

Schedules are typically released three to four weeks before the event.

Thank you, then that should mean that the schedule will most likely be up this week.

Once Saturday night cones, can someone please take a crack at predictions here? It will finally be easier to make those predictions now that the season has actually started, right?
