ACF Nationals

Post by MLafer »

So who all is planning to attend ACF Nationals this year? I think Michigan will probably be sending two teams.

I'm still trying to work out some finances, but I'd like to let everyone know that, as I've learned in searching for arrangements, you can get some really great fares into Midway on any discount carrier that flies to Chicago (which is most of them) if you book soon.

CUNY will hopefully attend....I will be at a trial in Detroit for two months during that period (assuming it doesn't settle)....and should be able to make the trip (it's at Northwestern right?)....don't know when I'd have time to write a packet....

I'm pretty sure I (and many other Chicagoans) will make it. This is even better than that time they had the ICT in LA.

Vanderbilt will be there. Besides that whole competition thing, we have other reasons to go - one girl has a fiancee in Chicago, another guy is from Chicago, and I'm getting married in Evanston over the summer and will probably have some sort of wedding-related business to take care of.

Swarthmore sadly won't be at ACF, since we can only afford/have time for one cross-country nationals trip, and our Div II team is getting priority this year.

Princeton, probably with a badly mutilated team, will be coming. Presence of either Chris Frankel or Lenny Kostovetsky is in doubt, especially the latter.

Dan and I have been talking lately and it looks as if I will be in fact coming to ACF Nationals. I don't know our full roster beyond him and me, and it doesn't look like Lenny will be coming, but Princeton won't be devoid of its regular starters.

In the interest of possibly putting together a good ACF predictions thread, anyone know whether or not the following teams will show (and at what strength):

Rochester
Harvard
Stanford
Florida
Yale
UCLA
South Florida
Virginia
Kentucky
Indiana

And any others I may forget to mention...

Florida will most likely not be in attendance. We probably couldnt put together too strong of a team anyways with Raj not playing.
My views in no way represent those of the UF College Bowl team. (by request)
