Re: Unofficial Rankings B

Based on a clarification I got regarding the NH scoresheet, Walpole's placement in my rankings has been updated to 48th. All other teams have been kept in the same order.

smh why do they switch weekends every year.

Probably has to do when the facilities they want to use are available. Dealing with university administration can be very restrictive sometimes.

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

FYI: Team Numbers Known 1st place teams to decline a bid include Waynflete (ME) and LISA Academy West (AR) in B, and Waynflete (ME) and St. Johnsbury's Academy (VT) in C. I'm uncertain if the two teams that are higher than Walpole in this PDF were eligible to attend nationals: https://scioly.org/wi...

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

Got Ames's score, so 39th and 40th have switched. What is your algorithm? It's based on the one I've used for PA predictions; it basically uses a combination of state score, state tournament size, past performances by teams from that state, past nats placements for that team, and invitational perfor...

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

As with my B predictions, these rankings are not open for feedback; you can tell me what you disagree with, but the rankings will not be changing unless I personally feel like it. I do not expect you to agree with all of my rankings, nor would I expect or even want you to. Also as with B, the top 30...

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

But like. What does it have to do with placings. I don't understand. It's a minor factor. It doesn't play a major role. If I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about the single sentence I chose to say about each team. I'm not worried, I just asked you to explain, which clearly you're not going to....

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

I'm kind of confused, I see you mentioned for a couple teams how close they are to nationals (Highlands, Harlan Rowe)? What does distance have to do with placing besides builds breaking or something? And wouldn't that make you put Eagle Hill higher because they're probably the closest to Cornell ou...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

Too bad the movie cuts right through the flying session... Isn't it also screening on Thursday night? Not sure when but that's when I'm planning to see it True, although I'm pretty sure Friday would gather more people bc I think most teams are arriving late Thursday or later But now that these two ...

Re: Summer Study

I spoke with the person in charge of the Science Olympiad team at my step son's school and he said that packets of information to study and try out don't go out until the school year starts this coming fall. Is there a way for him to study over the summer, I wasn't sure what all he needs to cover a...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Well that kinda of stuff stays in it's respective corners of reddit. You'll really only see it if you look for it. (Unilke instagram or other platforms...) It tends to stay outta the mainstream reddit which is less toxic as a whole. I disagree. Mainstream reddit also has a lot of toxic upvoted comm...

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

What an awful predict. You didn’t even close the parentheses around Troy’s range. All mechanics aside, this seems very feasible. Edit: You may have fixed it. But it is forever documented in my reply quote. Madison is strong this year. I put in the 17-22 range. Kate is also sleeping on Pioneer (16-2...
