Kinda. Obviously I'm not going to upset any of the competing teams by posting what I think is likely to happen to each of them at Cup and I'm certainly not going to predict a winner--y'all already know who I think will win--and if I don't believe in my team, who will? Okay, I don't think it's a foregone conclusion, I think it is possible. I think we are capable and probably one of the favorites. And I am confident we will get it done. (All that means is I'm just like everybody competing the for the title.)
What I am going to do is predict prelim records--but without saying (at least for right now) which teams end up with which records. In checking the rules it seems the Pro division will still move 6 teams on to Sunday and that the top two (best records, highest point differential) will get byes to the semis.
Most of the time when peeps make predictions they fail to take the actual prelim brackets into account and instead pick their favorites. I have broken down all the brackets to see who is playing who. I have picked winners and losers in every Pro match to reach the following outcome.
2 teams will go 4-0.
3 teams will go 3-1.
5 teams will go 2-2.
1 team will go 1-3.
3 teams will go 0-4.
Only 1 of the 2-2 teams will make Sunday but that team will reach the semi-finals.
Now here is where y'all come in. I want you to post your top three predicted finishers in the comments. Pro only. If we get 50 responses I'll post my Sunday predictions--who makes the cut off. If we get 75 I'll include the seeding order of the Sunday Club. But you only have until next Wednesday so I can post up prediction details before the event begins Thursday morning. And who knows, if the comments receive more than 100 predictions I might post all my predicted prelim records with teams included next Thursday morning.
