13. Iolani
14. Solon
15. Ward
16. Clark
17. Stuyvesant/Syosset
18. NCSSM
19. Madison West/Marquette
20. Pioneer
21. Harriton
22. Chattahoochee
23. Lower Merion
24. Mounds View
25. Troy (MI)
26. Brookwood

I think NCSSM is a tad high, as well as Tesla. I'd put TJ at 7 and bump everything down. I'd also put Mountain View in 3rd and WWPN in second. I think Troy is better than 7L. Troy MI is also a bit high, and I think you may be sleeping on Grand Haven for the second MI bid. We'll see how UMSO plays out. I'd slide Madison West up to the 12 spot and also adjust everything else accordingly. Keep in mind that most of the teams on this list attended MIT, and 19th is definitely selling them short. Clark at 16 seems a tad high, and I think that Pioneer is sneakily a top 15 team. DuPont is low 20s as well. Both Florida bids are also too high imo.

imo Troy will rise again, but I'd say MTV should be ranked 1st on any list. They seem like a much more complete team than any other atm.

Haven't been paying too much attention to Carmel since CMU - have they really been doing well enough to place T10 nationally? I'd probably put them somewhere around where Tesla STEM is now, but I might be working off of limited information.

Based on Solon and GGSO, they seem to be on roughly the same level as Stevenson. Also, they beat Troy, Stevenson, & WWPS superscored at GGSO so they're pretty good.

To be fair it appears most of the teams you mentioned from GGSO were stacked so a superscore is kinda irrelevant. It doesn't matter if your B team is better than another teams...

That's a fair point, but their stacked team still took 6th at GGSO so my original point stands.

Yeah for sure I agree that its a great result, I was just saying its also unfair to say they beat those teams when in reality you can't make that stretch.

Just saw this - I appreciate the vote of confidence, but I don't know if I'd put us that high... IMO SOUP should be pretty indicative of TJ's 2021 stack strength, so if you're interested in our team that's probably something to watch.
