True, i do see some regional bias, both from the Midwest and east coast, yet i think the poll pretty much evens it out and is fairly accurate in the final results.

Is there going to be a post-nationals national poll?

I am planning on it, as that will give the voters better information to use in balloting.

Not a problem. It's always been a process that has interested me.

i think that CC and East Lansing should be a little higher and Troy could use to be a little farther down.

IP check against everyone who ever posted in the Michigan thread, hopefully we can finally ban someone. Not that they really deserve it, but come on, this board used to ban people like once a month. Fred needs to drop the hammer.

EDIT:

Preemptively: Not on me.

Who are you, how would you rank the teams, and why?

Fred's first tip for posting: don't make your first post a sweeping judgment of teams without introducing yourself or otherwise making yourself seem like a person with an agenda.

Comparing this poll to the NAQT results, it looks like the underrated award goes to Whitman, Moravian, or Walnut Hills.

True, but those are to be expected, especially for Moravian and Walnut Hills, which are somewhat underreported areas.

But we nailed three of the top four!

I didn't mean to disrespect the poll. As a matter of fact, it held up remarkably well considering how few times many of the top teams had played each other.

We at Raleigh Charter just played much below our ability all weekend. Sorry for not holding up our part of the poll.

It will be forgiven. This time.

I wasn't trying to make it sound like you were being disrespectful or anything; I was just trying to give a rationale as to why they were underrated :)

I got to watch you guys in practice against Livingston on Friday night and then on Saturday when you guys played State College... honestly, on Friday night I was thinking you guys were one of the main teams to beat and for the first part of the State College match, you seemed be hanging in there.. then the wind just left the sails BUT that happens, no need to apologize for doing your best... you are a good team...

Yeah, on Friday we were playing very well, but I'm not really sure what happened the next two days.
