Pennsylvania 2011 Division B Poll

Postby sciolyscorpio95 » March 22nd, 2011, 7:22 am

Here's a poll for who you think will make it to Nationals this year. I included the top 2 teams from each region so far, and the rest were based off of last year's results. For the SE division, I put top 3 since BC and WV tied in their score (BC won the tiebreaker). Good luck to everyone at States!

Um, I don't know if you realize, but not all of the regions have competed yet. NW, SW, and C have yet to compete. I'm not sure it's a good idea to make a poll already for states. I'd also put 10 options, so add another school after all of the regionals are done based upon the results.

Finally, Greater Nanticoke is not going to states. They got 12th at regionals. Have you looked at any of the results at all?

Sorry about that, I didn't look at all of the results yet. ANd I was going to put the top 10 teams, but I wanted another category for "Other" so I only included the Top 8 teams from last year. And yes, I know that half the regions haven't competed yet. It's just for people to see other's opinions now, regardless of that.

Sorry though, it was an honest mistake, and I apologize for any confusion there. That's what the Comments section is for, though.

No problem. Just put 9 teams and an "Other" category. What I'd do is do the champions of each of the 6 regions and then choose 3 more teams to fill up the spots. Just a suggestion. :idea:

Whatever, I am still going to vote for Bala and Strath, no matter what happens at the other regionals.

If you don't like the way it's done, do it yourself. And no, we haven't looked at any of the results of the regionals in PA. Have you looked at the results of the Magsig, Solon, or West-Liberty invitationals? Maybe you should see who's in the top 5 in each one of those :lol: then tell me who's going to Nationals. Back off my team mates. :evil:

that was a little harsh...but yeah, if you look at invitational results he kinda has a point. still, both the regional scores and invitational scores would matter for this.

I don't want to sound arrogant, and I'm not at all. I'm aware that we didn't make it last year, but have some respect for the poll my teammates created. If you want to suggest a change maybe try making it without the sarcasm.

sorry bruce. but where is there any hint of sarcasm in that? and by the way, in my opinion he is respecting our fellow teammates. he/she(sorry, don't know what gender) was just adding some advice for the poll.
Science, yeah!

Made a new team. 7th place at NH states. Officially the champions of Vermont.

Whoa, hold on now. I'm going to respond to each of your little tidbits here.
If you don't like the way it's done, do it yourself.

I can't edit posts by other people, and if I were to make a new poll, it would fill up this forum with extra threads that we don't want. That's why I suggested to sciolyscorpio to make some edits in this poll. Much more constructive than saying "Ha, I made a better poll than you. What now."
And no, we haven't looked at any of the results of the regionals in PA.

Why not? It's a good idea to see how other teams that you will compete against are faring. They're littered all over the PA thread and the wiki, so they're not exactly hard to get to. It's also a good way to decide what teams to put in a poll like this.
Have you looked at the results of the Magsig, Solon, or West-Liberty invitationals? Maybe you should see who's in the top 5 in each one of those :lol: then tell me who's going to Nationals.

The problem with those is that only a few teams from our state go to those. I understand that those teams are probably the most competitive, but it's nice to recognize other teams as well by putting them as options in this poll. If you don't care about them because you don't feel like they're on your level, then fine, but us who really appreciate just getting to states would like to see some recognition from doing well at regionals.
Back off my team mates. :evil:

I respect that you feel strongly about your teammates, but that's no reason to completely bomb someone who's giving them suggestions. If nobody gave constructive criticism in this world not much would get done.

We spent about 10 minutes after lunch one work session posting random comments on here. Taking whatever I said seriously was not the intent. Sorry for the confusion :oops:

Is there any way that you can enable people to change their votes? I don't expect my votes to change, but if somebody comes in and wins their regional with an incredibly low score I'd like to be able to switch. (And maybe set the switching deadline to like the weekend before states)
