College Nationals begin tomorrow!


Somewhat pertinent, since most high schools are very close or already finished their seasons and as a result all those seniors will be moving on to wonderful college programs somewhere attempting to make an impact and all that wonderful stuff.

And what perfect timing, because tomorrow begins the 2006 UPA College Championships (nationals, and yes this year it is nationals because there arent any canadian teams)

Anyone following the action? Your hometown favorites? If UltiCentral ends up doing u-pickem again who are you choosing to win it all? Florida? Wisconsin? Beau Kittredge by himself?

Ill be making the 7-9 hour drive from Philadelphia to go watch (leaving friday night at 11pm to hopefully arive by prequarters on saturday) and ill try to update from whatever hotel i end up at.

in the meantime...
check out the official site - http://college2006.upa.org
the scoreomatic page will have updates throughout the weekend -
and of course the score reporter site

So UBC isnt a canadian team? The ubc ladies got the 3rd bid outta the NW. Dont forget about the ladies man!

I've got my money on Oregon taking the whole thing. But, I might have a little bias opinion on the matter.

I'm thinking Kali on the ladies side, Wisco on the guys. (I haven't seen most of the competition, though. Purely speculation.)

Wow, everyone held seed in pool play. That pretty cool. Tommorow will be interesting to see the best teams playing each other. Go Oregon!

Earmuffs said...

Best thing ever! http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2396411865404687179&pr=goog-sl

Beau gets skied!

Worst thing ever...Oregon goes down to stanford 15-11 in the quarters...

Other stuff, Colorado is taken out by Georgia in double game point...what?! i didnt know that was gunna happen but maybe im just outta the loop..

Semis are Wisco v Georgia and Florida v Stanford

Predictions?

KH said...

Methinks Wisconsin will cruise (I've seen them play- a very strong team top to bottom and incredibly athletic, not to mention that Georgia just came out of an incredibly tight game v. CU). I really don't know about the other semi.

How 'bout womens? SW regional matchup in semis? Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure the (open) finals will be between Wisconsin and Florida. As for who will win, I have no idea. Florida has beaten wisconsin before, but wisconsin beat florida at CENTEX.
For the women: I had previously thought colorado was going to take it. But seeing that UCLA has just beaten them, that's not possible. The finals are UCLA vs Stanford. I think stanford is going to win.

Earmuffs said...

MAN! I cant believe UCLA beat Colorado...im so bummed. I was all for Kali taking it all! But UCLA better win now...or atleast give stanford a good game...itd be their first of the tourney...gah!

And I think Wisconsin will take the guys! But i really have no idea!

Wisconsin and Florida are both so deep. I think the score is going to be like 16-14 or 17-16. It's going to be off the hook!!

Alex Snyder (Colorado Kali) and Tim Gehret(Florida) win callahan!

Womens: Stanford wins over UCLA 15-10 (i believe)
