Gali-leo!

I figured it was about time for us to get a Galileo thread started. What does everyone think of our division this year?

EDIT:
I’ve attatched a list of all the teams attending with the number of regional finalist/win placements as well as all team awards listed (MSword format). From the looks of it, it’s going to be one tough division, but I can’t wait!
Also, I’ve added my first attempt at a Galileo userbar; I’ll edit the image as I refine it. (Append: Second edit) .gif second userbar up. I’m thinking the shading needs to be worked on, but I’m only using userbarmaker.com and MSpaint. plus, I should really do my calculus now. I’ll make them look nice later. Cheerio!

Notice: I’ve made an error with team 291’s information in the .zip. It should read:
2006 PIT KPC&B Entrepreunership
2006 PIT J&J Sportsmanship
2006 PIT UL Industrial Safety Award
I’ll change this as soon as I’m not on a school computer (i.e. one that can unzip/zip files).

Galileo for the 3rd year in a row, 4th year in a row pitting next to MOE.

2nd year in a row for 237!!

we’re psyched for it! Can someone make a userbar for Galileo? (i would, but i don’t know how)

177 was in Galileo during the '04 nats and will be returning again! there are a lot of teams that were at the Philadelphia regional in Galileo…It’ll be interesting to see how things play out next week!

oh, and I cant wait for Blair’s infamous “Gali-leo” chant!

8 teams from Philly Regional by my count:
173, 177, 291, 306, 341, 365, 444, & 716
Including the entire Winning Alliance!
Funny how division assignments work. There were alot of Galileo Philly teams last year.
Speaking of odd occurrences, it does look like we will be pitted next to 384 for the 4th straight year as Joe Matt said. Unfortunately, 358 will not be on the other side, like the last 2 years.

We always end up in Galileo for some reason when we go to the championship.

I wonder if we pit numerically or we will do the highest # lowest # end in the middle method the other regionals I’ve been to used.

BTW I hoping for numerically because then we’re next to our local friends Rage and my alma mater (undergrad) WPI.

It looks pretty tough. I know Me and the rest of the team 494 gang are pretty pumped. Getting to play with teams like 16, 27, 45, 67, 173, 177, 190, 211, 237, 269, 341, 365, 384, 547, 716, 766, 989, 1014, 1126, 1276, 1319, 1403, 1506, 1625, 1747 will be an honor not to mention all the other strong teams. I must say that the fact that at least 1 regional winner if not more won’t be in the playoff rounds is quite shocking!

I’m extremely excited to be playing in the Galileo division!
I’m happy to have a great division chant this year. Being in Newton, it’s not as easy of a chant.
“Iss-ac New-ton” vs. “Gali-leo”: No contest. Galileo wins.
I also made a Galileo userbar if anyone is interested. Just don’t use the same link location as mine, save it to somewhere you can host from; I don’t want to overuse mine.

I am so excited to be playing in the Galileo division this year. I think that there are alot of strong teams in this division, and whoever represents Galileo on Einstein will give the other divisions a sure run for their money. (Personally, I hope 716 is one of them… the ultimate way for me to end my senior year would be a division win!)

As I posted in the official 2006 Championship Divisions thread, these are the teams I am going to be watching the most on Galileo.

Oh, and by the way, I love the Galileo userbars! :slight_smile:

Do we know who the announcer is for Galileo?? I know Blair has done it in the past, but will he be back?

I’m pretty sure I read it somewhere on FIRST’s site, but I can’t find it anywhere anymore.

I never saw it on the FIRST website, ever. I bet it’s Blair, since the MCs have their personal favorite fields (Jeff is ALWAYS on Arch, etc)

Lots of strong teams out there. I’d like to see pics of the bots. Anyone wanna try and put together a Galileo Mosaic??
I know we’re planning on showing the world what we can do. We’re a holonomic drive, so any team that wants to stop by and check us out, feel free.

Blair said he would be on Galileo at the UTC regional.

We missed you guys at Philly too! I’m going through withdrawal.
Nutritionally speaking I didn’t get enough (MOE) green in my FIRST diet this year!

Thanks guys!! I just hope he’s our MC!! He’s lots of fun!!

  1. I am curious why you did not mention 1126 on your list. Aren’t they capable of scoring 40 pts in the game.
  2. I want to know why you selected 173, 830, 1276, & 1784. Do they have unique defensive capabilities?

i’m excited to be in gali-leo this year. we were in newton last year…lol that chant is more lame than gali-leo (that will be way more fun). i’m so excited to see the few teams from pitt and BMR, and some new teams.

I can tell you that 1276 was mentioned because they are excelent at scoring, can push almost anyone around and are extremely hard to push around with their 6 traction wheels and AM shifters. The reason that they haven’t been mentioned much is that the reletive power rankings don’t have all of the information from Manchester, their only regional where they pretty much dominated.
