Canada's Other Lesser Known Team

Hey Folks,

Poll Thursday gives us a chance to look at some of the maybe biased picks out of the North East open UPA division. Once again the division didn't get a growth (SW) bid or size bid (Central), so only two spots are going.

A total of 35 voters for last weeks poll and the results say:

  • The Fans pick Dog (76%) coming out number 1 at Regionals trailing with Goat (12%), Twisted (9%), and PoNY (3%). Not a huge shock here since DoG hasn't lost to any of these three teams in quite some time.
  • The second spot out of Regionals goes to Goat (54%) with Twisted Metal (23%) and then Pony (6%).
These picks seem to make sense. One person voted for the wild cards (it would be nice to know who they thought was going to crack the big 4 - comment?), and that's probably a good choice since none of the wild cards have had any success against the top four in the North East.

As much as I wanted to sample other regions, not much has been provided in the way of analysis. Therefore, I've got to go with what I'm somewhat familiar with and we'll take a look at the open region with another major Canadian team - Furious George. The pools are set and you get to pick 4 coming out of the division...

Some details if you don't want to do the research:
  1. Sockeye - 2 losses this year (early loss to Rhino and late loss to Condors)
  2. Furious - Early season losses to Rhino and Voodoo; hasn't beat Sockeye this year (0-4)
  3. Justice League - Early loss to Rhino (revenge in same tournament); hasn't beat top 2 seeds.
  4. Revolver - Hasn't beat any of the top 3 seeds or Rhino this season.
  5. Hippo - No big wins other than a win over Johny Bravo. Beat Rhino at sectionals to take seed.
  6. Rhino - lots of wins early. Has beaten everyone.
  7. Wild Cards
    • Invictus - no big wins
    • Voodoo - beat hippo once
    • Oaks - no big wins
Each poll has 7 picks with the 7th being the wild card pick:
