Yes, well I voted. And I placed our school high. But I was rather unsure on Johnson's prospects this year. In all fairness, a lot of you guys graduated.

While our team choked, and I think our ranking in the polls is an exaggeration of our performance (or lack thereof), I think that in any poll you are bound to have issues with creating a good way to judge teams. For example, I would say that Walnut Hills is a better team than, say, Moravian. That ma...

The reason I hit Kipp was because he was answering on a California buzz. In the end, I suppose, it did help us because we ended up getting the makeup question. Ah well, it was just an accident, and CA did make the finals anyway.
