Isn't Magsig's coach the tournament director? I figure that'll give them a little bit of a home-field advantage. And for Chattahoochee, going from 34th to 15th is a pretty big leap, and I think you guys can crack the top ten this year. As for Clements, that's more of a hope since the other two Texas teams just took 3rd in the two previous years, although they haven't shown anything spectacular yet this year. And what's wrong with Northridge, shouldn't you be more surprised about me putting Eagle Hill in 8th?

1) The last time Magsig's coach was the tournament director, they didn't qualify for the first time in seven or eight years.
2) Last I checked, Northridge wasn't even in the top 5 at state (though they could pull a Mounds View :) ) Eagle Hill has at least placed in the top ten within the last few years, and has consistently been in the top 15 or so.
3) Regarding Chattahoochee, if you look at the scores, it's a really long way from 493 (our score) to 332 (Mounds View's score).

Ok, that would make sense (I'd personally place them a bit higher, but not by much). I do think Eagle Hill in 8th is a longshot, but I didn't mention it because, well, compared to Northridge...

I was generally trying to somewhat abandon remaking last year's top 11 or 12 in each division, so that's why there are a lot of oddballs. I dropped 9 and 10 from each division because I felt like if anyone were to fall out of the top ten, it would be those teams(well 9th place was due to me thinking neither of those teams would make it), especially with the B division scores being a lot more spread out for those places than C division.

Whats the team that beats Kraemer

My school, Fisler may seem bad but we are coming after you. We don't care that we got 26th at Ladera.


Fisler has the best scioly team.


Joeystudies - I think they were hinting at JT, and yes you're right Fisler is not a weak team. If I remember from OC Regionals last year, you guys were doing pretty well in some of your events.

Guys, let's please all be respectful. This violates the whole scioly spirit in general and the friendly relations our schools are supposed to have--you don't have to be best friends, but saying degrading things about other schools isn't exactly making you look good and it's not doing your team any favors...

To add some context to Ento's post, there was recently a bit of a skirmish about certain teams that got out of hand very quickly. We realize that sometimes emotions about one's own team can be very strong, and tensions can get high as competition season progresses, but it is imperative that all users are respectful of each other in order to keep things civil.

We will also add that deliberately inciting a confrontation, or making deliberately inflammatory remarks about other schools or users will NOT be tolerated, and is punishable by board warnings, temporary bans of varying length, or permanent bans, depending on the severity of the offense. We take this very seriously.

Luckily, these incidents don't occur on the forums very often, and we would like to keep it that way. We know that the vast majority of our users are respectful towards each other and the site, and we are deeply appreciative of this. :)

Thanks Ento and East!

Anyway, going back to the discussion of Nationals predictions...

It looks like a lot of people have confidence in a Sanders win, followed by the frequent Nationals Champion Troy [CA] and classic Kansas team Olathe North.
