Done; Nick, you may want to edit your own calendar for the Michigan Fall mirror.
I might as well add predictions while at it.
Ezell-Harding: This team, traditionally the strongest of Mid-TN teams, retains all their key players. If Griffin can improve his bonus conversion and ever master science, this team has a good chance of improving its 33-t ranking at HSNCT. Of course, this is nearly all contingent on the team's ability to support Griffin. Go to NHBB please. They should definitely try PACE for a change, and I think they would be better on ACF-format, but that's Dr. Rummage's decision.
USN: This team retains almost all of its scoring ability in Jesse, Case, and Lauren. A character named "Matthew" will also be there to get science apparently. But yes, significant participation leads to improvement and these guys are pretty balanced scorers. They will all be able to attend HSNCT since graduation does not conflict with it, but not PACE.
Hume-Fogg: Pavel, the lead scorer, is the only person remaining on this team. I don't know if their JV players will be able to provide as much support as they hope, since those are the only people with experience. But HFA is a good school, and I'm sure Pavel can find smart kids.
MLK: Nice one. By this, I mean that my successors are buzzer-shy and inexperienced, but we'll see what happens.
BGA: These guys did well at state and attend a fair number of events yearly- they can improve a lot. Unless many of them graduate/d, they are still fairly balanced from what I hear.
Webb School: After most of their players graduated last year, they've been struggling to do well, but they made it to the finals of Quizbusters, showing potential on an IS-A set. They will also be fairly balanced.
Gallatin: As Nick said, some of their players are underclassmen and they have a lot of potential. They show up to many events and likely have a lot of experience- and apparently they now have 3-6 seniors on the squad.
Central Magnet: Similar to Gallatin, except I know some of their players are MS/JV and that they have smart kids.They attend a fair number of events annually.
Pope John Paul II: They've been attending a few events recently but are underperforming.
White Station: This team has recovered from a relative slump in participation in past years, and Victor and Zach will be able to get many tossups. Since they are fairly new to it, I believe they need to participate the most or at least study a lot, so they can hopefully attend HSNCT and/or PACE. They are hosting an HS and an MS tournament, and if either of those were housewrites that would be great (apparently not though). But it's ok; I think they will be motivated enough to get better.
MUS: If MUS would quit dabbling in the dark land of AUK and both them and St. George's would host on real questions/attend real tournaments, they would have a good shot at becoming a better team. They have 5 coaches already and will likely have enough interest/money to go to HSNCT next year if they qualify. On the other hand, I have no information or responses from their coaches.
Lausanne Collegiate: They won the Knowledge Bowl competition, Chris Chiego tells me, and thus they have a lot of potential.
Bolton: They did quite well at WUHSAC last year and many of their B team members survive (note that B placed higher than A at WUHSAC). So they also have a shot at doing well at state/whatever they choose to attend.
Houston: They had a 400+ PPG at Bolton's invitational before being upset by St. Benedict and I think they have younger players for next year. Once again, potential.
Others including Collierville (qualified for HSNCT), upsetting MUS and St. Benedict (attended HSNCT, going 4-6): I don't know these teams personally or their motivation, but I both have potential in smart kids and event attendance.
Oak Ridge: They retain Will Mason, Aram, and Gaibo, who are all experienced. It's notable that Will will have less support since Katie and Sirui were excellent players, but they can definitely repeat their HSNCT placement if they study. These guys should surely attend PACE. [Edit: they might go to one or the other]
Farragut: They lose Lawrence and MJ, who comprised the majority of their scoring. But knowing Lam and Kai (most likely lead scorer this year), they will not let Oak Ridge dominate the East, absorbing some of their former JV players/B Teamers like Don and Shreyas to get back a little scoring and bonus conversion. They will likely attend HSNCT, and should definitely try PACE. EDIT: They have depth OK I get it.
McCallie: They went 5-5 at HSNCT but I think their entire squad this year is graduating- they tell me that they do have sufficient interest-and maybe a new coach?- to keep their program alive. They also attended numerous events this year (TN/GA).
Columbia Central/Lincoln County: These two schools attend most events in the state, and both have much experience with IS or IS-A quizbowl. However, some of their A-team members will graduate this year. I don't know how much experience their younger players have, but I know they have the motivation and understanding to have programs that last.
