Edit: Has anyone realized how teams with earlier states comps place considerably worse than teams which have states late:
https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Wrigh ... rsity_2017
Ex: Wright State Uni 2017:
Montana (November): 48th
West Virginia, SOuth Carolina, New Mexico (February): 55, 43, 44

THen APril 29th (last state comps):
Illinois:1,8
Michigan:4,13
Pennsylvania:9,20

It also just so happens that those states have much stronger teams.

Agreed. You’d have to see which states have moved their state tournaments to different times of year, and study the effect of those changes.

Okay, trash talking states who try, possibly even more then you, is not okay. Not only is it immoral, but it also may not be true. Texas used to place in the bottom half until Beckendorff came along, even winning nationals in 2014. Anything could happen, and you can't criticize it.


Ok. I'm sorry to anyone I offended.

According to our performances this year, (our actual knowledge and not just medals) our team actually has a chance at ranking in a few events. We got 16th in Disease Detectives last year.


Are you talking about Nats?


This is about nats, yes. I believe that was the B team so I'm less familiar with their scores (and this IS the B rankings thread, haha), but my team (C division) placed 12th in experimental design, and 24th in robot arm as well for our best events our first year at nationals. Idaho may not be competitive, there were only 31 B teams and 13 C teams at state, but we sure as hell try to compete at our very best and improve our rank at nationals if possible! We really hope in the future we'll be able to encourage the other teams to try just as hard as we do.

So uh yeah, it'd be kind not to trash talk other teams you don't know the history of based on state alone. *shrug*



I see... I wasn't aware you guys actually had that many teams. I thought Idaho was one of those states where like 5 teams compete at state.



I'm sorry

Tbh I don't think you guys will be top 10, you haven't been doing that well this year, but probably very close, maybe 11 or 12. Goff, however, I don't think will make top 20. They got really lucky during states, maybe they'll get in the 30s or something.
I know stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I kind of know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, weather, fossils, and water... hopefully I'll get to keep learning.

I agree on Gelinas, but I'd say Goff will be around 20-25.

Last time we (Goff) made Nationals in 1999, we got 20th. We'll probably end up about there again.

1999 Nats are considerably harder than 2018.

I mean this makes sense because the kids get to work harder and feel stress/under pressure as they prepare. Plus not all states hold all events, and when you start an event like two months before nats then it's hard to get better.
Here we go once again!

I agree with Gelinas, and I think Goff might be around 17th in my predictions. They didn't have many bombs at states and that's what hurts your team score the most at nationals. And Goff's 2nd place states is not due to luck, but due to a solid team that works well together and spreads events outs evenly. Also, I think its an understatement to say Gelinas hasn't done that well because they did win 3 tournaments that consisted of nationally competitive teams and won NYS. But none the less we will just have to wait and see and good luck to all teams competing in Colorado!
