Thanks for your vote(s) of confidence.

The one thing that puzzles us is Gov's ranking, we thought they should be higher. We are currently 66-4. Three of those losses were to Gov. Maybe Gov A is our kyrptonite?

I ranked Maggie Walker 2nd, i think. Or State College... i don't remember. Either way they certainly are no worse than 3rd, absolutely.

George, you're an awesome guy, but please tell me how we're ranked behind DCC, who we've played twice and are 2-0 against and beaten by a combined about 700 points, and Whitman who we're about 5ish-1 against and who we've finished higher than at every single tournament we've both been to.

I have to say that I'm surprised that a lot of people didn't rank Gov higher than seventh. I think that they definitely are at least top five (and they are probably my pick to win PACE this year).

Perhaps it wasn't there full team. I've seen some tournaments that DCC hasn't brought their entire team to play, so that might be why he had the rankings like that.

People make mistakes on polls done for entertainment purposes only, film at 11.

Also, complaining about how you think you're the ninth team in the nation but someone put you 11th is kinda inane.

Well, there seems to be a pretty significant gap between number 9 and number 10. I do agree that it's silly to complain about polls in general, though.

Put what they think the top 25 teams are on their ballot, and then let somebody average out all the ballot results.

I'm sure the Byko rankings are a big factor for a lot of people; I know it was for me. Past experiences in matches are surely came into play too.
