Of course, Iíve only seen the 1836 submission. 384 was one of my bubble teams, as was 422. I donít envy the selection committee!

Why pick 2363? When is the last time a team qualified to this event without ever getting to finals at any event?

I believe the poster I quoted just asked for comments and questions. I play in the same state as those 3 teams, so that is why I asked the questions. If it turns out that I have a poor grasp of reading comprehension for the English language and that was not the case, I hope you can find it in your big hearts to forgive me.

I hope I'm not disappointing anyone by saying that I will not be filling out this, or publicizing a prediction for this, since my team chose to apply and I feel as though I can't be impartial.

As always, I do appreciate feedback from my fans!

I believe 2867 was the winner of the IRI Invite Silent Auction item for the two years they attended without making the finals of a regional.

My script currently doesn't account for that or winners from the previous year or host teams.

Re: 2018 IRI Invite Prediction Contest

After viewing these predictions, apparently I need to start the 708-hype-machine in full force.

They meet basically all the criteria for inclusion at this prestige event. Blue banner? Check. Success at high levels of play (MAR Champs, Detroit Championship)? Check. Well-designed and inspiring robot that caused other teams to crowd their pit to get details at Championship? Check. More gear shifting mechanisms than any robot reasonably should include? Double check. Well-run and stable team that makes a difference in their local and FRC community? Triple check.

708 built one heck of a switch and exchange robot, among the best on MAR and Tesla.Sure, there were plenty of switch specialists out there in FRC, but not that many of them could hang (708 could). Fewer still had multi-speed butterfly drives that enabled them to both play excellent defense and roll out of pushing matches when it no longer suited them. Not only did they get their first ever event win at the Westtown district, they did so as an alliance captain at a district that woudl ultimately feature five teams (including them) that would reach the division finals at Championship.

708 should be on your IRI predictions, and (more importantly) should be admitted into IRI.
