2010 Indiana Robotics Invitational Team List

Below are the teams for the 2010 IRI.
We have a great mix of teams from all around FIRST.

As you can tell, we are expanding the field to 82 teams.

We had quick responses from teams, declines from a few, and added a few from the wait list. With the match timing of this game, we believe we can still have plenty of matches and keep a resonable pace.

We will post details soon on the hotels, schedule, scholarships, awards and other activities.

wow.
I have to herd 82 teams in two days.
Well it will be good practice if I ever get lead que on a championship division.

oy.

82 teams. Only one word needed:
Impressive.

Can’t wait to see all these teams in action.

It’s good to see 1477 - Texas Torque - on the list. Another awesome Texas team!

Jane

I’m guessing it will be a lot like herding (X-) cats. You should already be good at it! :smiley:

I got bored…

IRI predictions bracket, assuming no large scale seeding system changes. Probably a bit very inaccurate. I rushed through it.


1. 1114	469	1732	234
2. 67	33	51	868
3. 1625	148	359	1058
4. 1086	16	1501	118
5. 233	217	2337	71
6. 2056	1718	111	1714
7. 1519	910	70	494
8. 330	294	1902	1538

1 > 8 in 3
2 > 7 in 4
3 > 6 in 3
5 > 4 in 2

1 > 5 in 4
2 > 3 in 2

1 > 2 in 3

I’m shocked 254 isn’t going :frowning:

Sorry… What is this supposed to be…?

I was just notified that team 694 cannot attend IRI. The students on the team were very excited about attending, but this just can’t happen this year. We (IRI organizers) appreciate the fact that they let us know as soon as they could with their changed status.

Sincerely,
Andy B.

:ahh:

The t-shirt phrase chosen last year is highly appropriate now: “SO MUCH MORE”

So people are crowning 1114 and 469 again for IRI, I wish you guys would have learned your lesson from Championships. IRI is almost impossible to predict winners. Frankly I’m tired of people being afraid of teams and handing them things. The team list here is awesome, I am sure the IRI committee will put on another great event.

I will be right there with you Ed. BTW, do you need a ride there? I will be driving right by you (coming from Albany).

I will, however, make a prediction:

Neither 67 nor 294 will win the final match.

Yep, you heard me: neither of the World Champions attending will win IRI. I can’t think of a time when a new World Champion won IRI in the same year…

Digging the team list. Sad I can only be there one day.

Strong words. Prove him wrong then! No one is going to hand 1114/469 anything. They, like every other team there, are going to have to work their butts off to earn it. Play hard, play fair, and, when all is done, take pride in how you did.

Plus, I ain’t afraid of no Simbot! (their singing on the other hand, may scare me)

I will go bold and say 1114 and 469 won’t be in the finals. Hey, they lost both matches on einstein and they have a huge possibility to be faced by bigger competition. They have too much of a target on them and I’m sure teams have/are figuring out ways to beat them.

I have a feeling an alliance in the bottom 4 will win IRI this year.

This year will be so much fun!

What makes you think I’m “afraid” of either team? I just was making predictions - and 1114 - 469 is a fairly logical prediction, considering this game’s fairly accurate seeding system, and 1114’s skill. My team didn’t even get in…

It would be my suggestion that a new thread be created for the inevitable predictions and the inevitable discussions that go with those predictions.

Jane

Unfortunately we did not have enough students who were going to be able to attend.

That is a pity! Personally one of the things that I was exited about IRI was to meet The Cheesy Poofs! After all the times in Atlanta and other Regionals that people had mistaken us for 254… I couldn’t help but wonder who could inspire so many FRC spectators to immediately think of The Cheesy Poofs when they saw cheeseheads!

To comment on previous predictions, I believe that all of the teams that shall be contending at IRI have an honest chance at victory, and to reinforce that statement I want to mention something I noticed while looking through the records of IRI… No team has won it more than once. Many teams have gotten close, but the closest that anyone has gotten was 1625, who got to the finals in 2008 and then won last year. Perhaps they will win again? Perhaps as everyone seems to fear 1114 and 469 will take the spotlight, which they will undoubtly have deserved if they do win. Whatever the final score is, I know my team will be honored to play with and against all of the teams at this invitational event.

My $0.02

I agree with your point. Since IRI is so deep, making predictions is pretty much guaranteed to be impossible (who thought 980 and 832 would be the top two seeds last year?). But to be completely pedantic, many teams have won the IRI more than once. 1625 won in 2006 and 2009. 469 won it 2002(?), 2003, 2004, and 2009. 68 won it in one of those older years and 2008 and 2009. 111 won in 2007 (and 2003?) 71 won in 2004 and 2006.

Oh that is my mistake! I should have clarified I meant the last three years. 2007, 2008, and 2009. My scouting did not go further back than 2007.

Another factor to look into is the winners of Einstein this year. I do not know if there is a connection in previous years about who won Einstein and who won IRI?
