Only a week to go! What are some thoughts?

Is anyone going to give Ironside a game? Bodhi didn't put up much of
a fight in their highly anticipated sectionals meeting. Sounds like
they are heads above the field, or football warmup worked.

GOAT had some clutch wins at Laborday, how about the other Canadians
in the field? Phoenix gave GOAT a game at sectionals, and has had good
results against the rest of the field. Montreal Open? Lost to Chuck
Wagon in ENE finals. Red Circus had a strong early season.

Sons of Liberty? The combo new noise-gunslingers group of young guns
have looked solid in their first year, only losing to Red Tide, Bodhi,
and Ironside with an edge over RSRD.

Speaking of young guns, will Amherst High have any upsets? Third
place finish in ENE.

I agree with Ironside not having a tough game until Sarasota. PONY
did give them one of their 3 losses this year, could that be a factor?

Ironside coasts through, meets GOAT in the finals. Rematch of Boston
Invite, GOAT is just as good but Ironside has taken it to another
level. Bodhi edges PoNY for third, but doesn't stop NY from getting to
the big show finally. Don't see anyone else as much of a threat for
the 4 tickets.

(1) Ironside
(2) GOAT
(3) Bodhi
(4) PoNY

How will the rest play out? Phoenix, Chuck, and Sons of Liberty all
have to potential to threaten Bodhi and PoNY, they'd have to be ready
to play.

(5) Sons of Liberty
(6) Phoenix
(7) Chuck Wagon

The rest us all up for grabs. I'm all for some HS upsets...i doubt
it'll happen though.

i have a feeling ironside will get a good grudge match this weekend
against a hungry GOAT team looking for revenge after giving up a tough
loss last year in the regional finals. the tables have turned, boston
had a strong summer while goat failed to win a single tournament,
quite opposite to what happened last year. i think GOAT has been split
all summer long with over half their players playing on the various
worlds teams this summer (1 junior, 2 coed, 5 open, 5 masters, if im
not wrong judging by world and upa 2007 rosters). Expect big things
again this fall. Boston will be game but GOAT will be better than
anything they have shown this summer i guarantee it. Look forward to
seeing the final result

Go GOAT

Sons of Liberty has played pretty well all season long. I think
Sectionals was a minor blip in their game plan. It is gonna count on
Saturday and I think this team is gonna step up.

I really think they have an excellent chance to make it to the show.

Phoenix plays a really quick game on offense and will move the disc
well if the rain stays away. With the addition of a few key people, I
thik they are gonna be knocking on the door for a few years to come.

Chuckwagon plays in a relatively weak section and probably won't make
it Sunday. Have they played any tough competition?

High School?!?!? Did you say High School? Not yet...................

PoNY hasn't come through against Bodhi yet, but watching them at Labor
Day was eye-opening. I think that in a single game, that team can
literally beat any team. They took Sockeye to DGP at ECC and handed
Boston their first loss at Labor Day. Their problem seems to be
primarily depth, when their best players are tired the wheels can come
off a bit, but I honestly believe they could be anywhere from 1-4 this
coming weekend.

If it is GOAT v Boston, Ironside takes it, they are not the team from
last year when it was a great game (in fact one of the best I've ever
seen). They've bolstered their with even more athleticism which was
the only real concern against a very physical GOAT team last year.

Ryan, I'm sure SoL has played well this season, but from what I
understand they are a New Noise/Gunslingers combine without the best
players from last year (Micah, Owen, Brent, etc...) and that team was
positively embarrassed by PoNY in the back door semis. I seem to
remember PoNY opening the game with 4-5 breaks in a row, no way they
edge PoNY this year.

Look out for Bashing in mixed, or just close your eyes and listen for
the loudest team that might be drunk at regionals.

SoL to nationals? That's pretty far fetched seeing as how they're a
new combined team formed without their star players...

I would like to see Amherst High school win a game!

I like how there's more talk about a high school team at regionals
than the real contenders. Ironside all the way!!

Who is Militia? are they new?

I think Militia is the left overs from Gunslingers after they combined
with New Noise. Sons of Liberty should be strong, Phoenix looks
solid. Heard through the grape vine that ARHS has a TINY squad but 2
big time alumns. I think it's Pony's year.

Pheonix is about the only team i see with any chance to upset one of
the top 4. That chance peaks out at about 1%

Great article here:

http://mssui.com/articles/unfamiliar_faces/

I think Sons Of Liberty takes the fourth spot by eeking out a win
against PoNY. I just don't think PoNY has the fortitude to win it
when it counts.


Phoenix is the Dark Horse though. I think they will wake up Sunday
morning with a chance to make it to Sunny Florida. It is getting cold
up there and a nice warm trip sounds nice.

Note that Champagne is the name of someone on Montreal, and not the
name of team. It appears to have been inadvertently highlighted in
the MSSUI article.

Phoenix!?!

Last time I watcehd them play they were a physical bunch. If they are
able to dictate their style of play, I think you are right, they will
be making the trip to Nationals.

They have put a lot of time and effort into the season. They are
35-15. Not too bad.

They have an excellent feeder system int he team FireBird, who played
pretty well in the fall series. I am sure some of those guys will be
making the trip down to help stoke the fires!

Phoenix does have a bit of Nationals experience having taken 5th place
at Canadian Nationals behind Mephisto, who is not playing in the
seris.

I say Phoenix over PoNY in the Pool, they go 4-0, they have the
easiest pool.
