Congratulations SAA for making nats, maybe a few years from now (idk, 2018?) you'll make nats again!

I can't believe Marie Murphy lost this year? Hopefully they'll make it again next year.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
I'm planning to learn stuff about oceanography, fossils, water, and birds, yay for the third time!

BOLD prediction. Stevenson (IL) gets knocked out of nats by Naperville North or Crystal Lake Central. ;)

That is a little bold, considering Stevenson has no shortage of feeder and Naperville North apparently tends not to attend invitationals.

Are you confident enough in your team for that?

Being all legit I have insider info which justifies my prediction about Stevenson's weakness this year and Naperville North's strength. If you wish for more details PM me so I can clarify. Also this year our team is ready to commit as we already have started our season insanely early and have started to prepare for all events to end up in the top 10.

Hasn't states already happened? Or are you talking about nats? If so, I predict that SAA will be the victim of a WQ misgrade and lose the duPont award. I know, call me crazy, but I have a feeling about this one.

I thought insiders would generally be bit more realistic with knowing where their own teams lie in the grand scheme of things, ik for sure Unome doesn't predict Chattahoochee to win nationals every year, and last season, I certainly felt that even though Carmel was showing some pretty strong performances at their competitions, I didn't for certain feel I could predict them to win, or who at all would win Indiana State for that matter (many people apparently had no doubt that Munster would win and they got 3rd) since Munster and Carmel hadn't competed in any of the same competitions at all until then, hence me not genuinely knowing where they stood in relation to each other although I knew that they both showed pretty strong track records at each of their respective tournaments. Those are just examples, I may seem pessimistic in comparison and you may seem optimistic in comparison, it's kinda hard to get a read on who's the most realistic and honestly, that's not easy to judge anyways.
