This thread every week should start one day earlier…
33 shows off another amazing performance picking their Southfield partners 3538, but don’t count out 2834, 5114, and especially the eighth alliance winners at Lincoln 5530. Chairman’s could go to lots of teams I expect underdogs 6077 to take it along with their engineering inspiration from Alpena #1
503 and 862 both have already won chairman’s have booked their tickets to states. 503 hopes to win an event for the first time since 2014 and not be finalist. 862 hopes to better their performance from Alpena #1. Expect big things out of 94 (especially winning their first banner week 1) and 7226.
With the bloodbath that Troy normal is this year it could only be the third hardest event this week. With a lot of these teams sharing events and deep histories I expect an amazing story coming out of this event. 245 having great performances at Kettering #1 and Kingsford, I expect them to out perform what they did at Kingsford. 2337 had a disappointing exit with 2767 in the Semifinals because of burned out Neos they are scary at this event. Also expect 51, 910, 1718, and 3539 to be very competitive at this event. 910 or 1718 wins Chairman’s. Other than that this event is a toss up
After a dominating win in Miami Valley and a disappointing loss in the quarters Team 302 looks to come out swinging at Marysville. Last years winners 1684 and 217 are looking for their first wins of the season. 494 and 3667 both look to take a second banner home this season. 4130 comes to an event looking to win their only second blue banner ever. This is a “revenge” event for many teams trying to get to get enough points to make states and worlds. The Charimans race, I’d expect 1189 to take it based off 302 and 1684 have already taken one each.
And now the main event…
27 67 and 2767 all looking to make up for their early eliminations in their previous events. 2054 after their domination at Lakeview and West Michigan(until finals) wants to continue thier reign of terror over others. 1918 looks to beat them after getting knocked out at Lakeview by them in Semifinals. Don’t be shocked if you see 4362 rise in the rankings with an outstanding performance at Jackson. Especially don’t sleep on 5460 for who I think is the only team to have soloed a rocket in Michigan(cannot confirm that)
Medium take- one of the teams I predicted that does well doesn’t😂
Hot take- Troy, Marysville, or East Kentwood sees someone that no one expects and gets alliances scorched
Burning hot take- three teams at one of the Michigan events this week has a 3.5 ranking score of higher.
