since U of W-M is also considered a "public Ivy" by some, it's probable. :)

well, if you got dead last, then we would increase several points for your points would be demoted. and therefore, that would have been at least third, probably right behind 2nd if not even.

I've noticed that the tentative national schedule seems to have a lot of problematic conflicts. In the past years I have thought that the conflicts were very cleverly made, but this year they seem like they are not the best arrangement. However, I really like that all teams have the same conflicts, I think that makes the competition as fair as possible. I just really hope the people in charge of the national tournament take a close look at the scheduling and make changes they deem proper.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.
