The New And Improved 2007-08 Predictions Thread

This is probably much belated... but the mentioned "TC" should just be Team Chuck... It's going to be sad when he goes up to history bowl and rains on Savannah's parade, but I like Charlie... so that will be my consolation.

All I know about these questions is that we weren't very good at them.

The point of what I was saying is Mr. Allen expects if a team has prospects for the Panasonic team, they need to make an effort to get to a tournament where he (Mr. Allen) is at in order to be seen so he can judge if they are worthy. They may be incredible players, but he can't go on reputation only.

Savannah 520- LeBlond 140 FYI LeBlond beat Cameron like 485-170 or somethin like that... it was a pretty good margin so they had some divine inspiration after a stagnant season. Also, these questions suck. We had a pretty great team effort with myself, Tom, and Will all making the all-district team.

Well, I'd say the odds that any given team wins are increased by preparation. Although sometimes "upsets" happen. Some of these are just an example of how work can make a struggling or average team very competitive.
