Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
You should only create problems, that only you know solutions to.

I think Troy will do pretty well in Bridge Building which will help them get 1st.

I think that Munster is totally being under-rated in this thread. They've had a really impressive season this year- I'm sure they would have won Wright State with stacked teams. Not to mention a composite score (between 3 teams) of 24 points at Regionals, and a score of 61 at State. I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the top five.

I think that Acton and West Windsor Plainsboro High School North will be in the top 5, if not, top 10.

I'm still struggling to see Acton-Boxborough in the top ten. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Massachusetts Division C, and their performance at the MIT invitational was impressive regardless of any of the reasons previously argued, but their score at the MA state competition wasn't their best (it was still very good when ignoring bungee and scrambler, but then again, 2 significantly lower placing events is plenty enough to set a team back at nationals). On top of that, for the past 5 years of Acton-Boxborough attending nationals, their overall placing has only varied between 28th and 36th, and for a team to go from 33rd to top ten in only a year is a bit hard to envision.

But once again, I'm a big fan of Massachusetts Division C, and even if Acton-Boxborough breaking top 10 at nats is far-fetched, it would still be something I would love to see.

:) As much as I appreciate the compliment, I still feel like top 5 is a bit of a long shot for us. It'll be really hard to beat one of the returning top 5 from last year (sure, we did beat Solon/Centerville at Wright State, but Seven Lakes won the tournament last year and finished behind Solon at nationals), so a lot can happen between now and then. balsa suggests that Troy is going to improve immensely leading up to nationals too.

Of course, speculation is still fun! I predict that the top 5 will remain the same as last year (Troy/Mounds View/Harriton/Mira Loma/Solon), except replacing Solon with a TX team e.g. LASA or Seven Lakes

I do see a lot of potential in Acton; invites certainly indicate that they can tussle with NY teams (although, like I said, a lot changes between then and now).

Now, if I had to predict the top 10, my picks would be...(in no particular order)

Troy (CA)
Mounds View (MN)
Mira Loma (CA)
Fayetteville-Manlius (NY)
Grand Haven (MI)
Harriton (PA)
Seven Lakes (TX)
LASA (TX) - of course, TX states is TX states so these two teams aren't certain
West Windsor Plainsboro North (NJ)
Munster (IN) - a bit biased here hehe :P

Honorable mentions: Northville (MI), Centerville (OH), Stevenson (IL)

But really, there are about 18 strong contenders vying for 10 spots, so...

Some of you guys might want to reconsider your top tens; Solon won't be coming to nats this year: https://www.dropbox.com/s/10fxkcextjgbn ... s.pdf?dl=0
