Interesting.

Anyway, UW will certainly have one team, and hopefully more like 2 or 3 teams.

That would be Travis Vitello. I'm pretty sure nobody in Columbus is planning on abandoning the rest of us and flying to a seemingly random location just to play ACF Fall.

It's not all that random. With frequent flier miles, it is as economic for me to travel to Boise as it is to, say, Tuscaloosa. The difference being that Boise is one of few sites that offers zero need for a rental car, and housing seems cheap-ish. Plus, They Might Be Giants are playing in town the night of 11/5.

I wasn't referring to your choice of location as random (but if it came out that way, I apologize), but your explanation does make sense.

I expect Treasure Valley Math & Science Charter to have a team or two. We might be able to get two teams from Boise State.

No responses from any of the other regional schools I've contacted (except Portland State--Angelo has said he's not going to be able to come).

Have you talked to BYU? I heard they had something of a team this year.

Do ya'll have a field update for this? I expect the field to be small-ish, but I'm curious if there have been any new developments. Thanks.

It looks like it's just you, Boise State (1-2 teams), UW (2 teams), and TVMSC (unknown number of teams, but I do expect them to come).

The Education Building.

I'll see everybody Friday night or Saturday morning, I imagine. I'll leave directions on how to get there.

Travis from Ohio State won at 8-2. There was a 3 way tie with a 6-4 record for 2nd place.

Travis took the top scorer.
