Repost of Champions Series Idea

This seems to be a popular topic so I thought I should have it at the top of my blog.

So, I have a new idea for the IQA Champions Cup... Why don't we have winners of major tournaments this year compete? It is a Champions Cup and shouldn't the invited teams be Champions of something? Isn't playing it out in tournaments a better way than coaches polls? What is this, the BCS? Here is how the Champions Cup would look, only counting the last 10 tournaments with more than 4 official IQA teams.
Blacksburg Brawl: Maryland
Stony Brook Classic: BU
Ohio Quidditch Cup: No winner yet, the tournament happens on April 14th
SQuiB: Ball St
Swamp Cup: Miami
Mardi Gras Cup: Texas
Texas A&M Classic: Texas A&M
Ives Pond Classic: Pittsburgh
Western Cup: USC
World Cup: Middlebury

You might be saying, Maryland over LSU, really? Yes. Maryland won the Blacksburgh Brawl with and came in second at the Stony Brook Classic over teams like Villanova, Pitt, Emerson, and Vassar. "And Ball State over Kansas?" Yeah! Kansas hasn't made the commitment to playing in a tournament this past spring that Ball St has. Ball St has often done well at Midwest Tournaments but they haven't gained the IQAs attention because they have not played at a World Cup. The rest of the teams are all very deserving. Anyone who questions Middlebury's invitation should be smacked on the head and reminded that they are the only team to ever have the title "IQA World Champion"
