Re: Harvard Fall Mirror at Auburn (12/11/10)

I think Nolan is alluding to the posibility of a team with a low record and a low TU count. It's feasible a team could have such a small sample size that their PPB could eclipse a team with 3-4 more wins than them.

With the official addition of Stevenson that now means that, according to the HSQB poll, we now have the #7, #12, and #21 teams attending this tournament. More top teams are rumored to be signing up so no one should miss this opportunity to play some of the best teams in the country.
