Great show. Good Analysis. Glad I could catch up with the archive.
A couple of thoughts:
A lot of pressure on 195, who haven’t made it to Einstein since Aim High (2006) with the Atom Bomb.
Geographical, CD bias in the polls?
I would have liked to have heard more about West Coast teams. They can’t be that bad.
Only 1/8 District teams made it to Einstein last year. 1/4 were West Coast teams. 1/3 if you include TX. 1/6 were from Canada.
No District teams were in the Einstein finals.
I’m old, so when I see a broadcast/webcast where the hosts spend more time staring at their computer screens rather than looking at the audience…
Always great to hear from Mr. Zondag. He’s so much more chill when he is not behind the glass.
Can’t wait to see the Friday analysis when we find out who will be on what fields with which teams.
I believe this was still a regular weekly poll, which means only teams that competed in Week 7 were eligible to be ranked. Since the only week 7 events were District Championships, no west coast and no regional-system teams show up.
I don’t know if anyone has pointed this out yet but on all three list there are 5 Indiana teams. So proud to be from such a competitive district! And good luck to all my Indiana brothers and sisters as they compete at worlds!!
