What the hell??!!!!!! How are Middlebury, Vassar, Emerson and Stony Brook in the same pool. On a list of the top teams in the Northeast, I would say #1 Middlebury, #2 Boston, #3 Emerson, #4 Vassar, #5 Hofstra and #6 Stony Brook. How can a pool be so stacked?? The pools were made based on the IQA rankings and I think that says two things. One, human polls such as the Eighth Man's rankings should be at least used to separate the top teams from playing together in a tournament. Two, Middlebury needs to start trying outside of the World Cup. What got them into this mess is that they sent a D squad like team to a tournamnet and in that tournament, they lost to McGill's second team. Now, playing in a tournament where the last place team in each pool will not have a chance to qualify for the World Cup and the fourth place team has a tough road, Middlebury is in trouble if they don't send their World Cup squad. Hopefully, since Middlebury is normally winning World Cups at this time of year, they are ready and prepared. If not, Middlebury quidditch might not even qualify for the World Cup. But, if they are ready and they are the Middlebury that we are used to or even better, the Quidditch world is in for a treat.
