If there is a curse on 7th place, then Grand Haven and Liberal Arts will not be joining us next year. Let's hope that's not true, for their sake.

You mean Lakeshore MS and LASA? I guess we'll see next year lmao. That would be MI and TX, so who else from their respective states could replace them?

I mean them. White Pines may replace Lakeshore, but I don't know from Texas.

That 7th place curse is just wrong, people think that because a few tournaments have made it appear there are some cures there is one, I just dont belive in such curses. Many people believe in the madden curse too, for everyone that goes on the cover of the game gets hurt or their career goes bad. According to the curse then in 2004 Grand Haven got 7th so they would not make it the next year right, they ended up getting 2nd the next year. As for White Pines and Lakeshore I think they will both make it next year.

Curses don't have to be constant, they can go on and off.

Um, sorry to burst some bubbles but the first time that "curse" was ever mentioned was about a page ago in this thread and it was meant jokingly.
