When I put up my original prediction, Middlesex wasn't in the field yet. However, I was anticipating that they would show up in the field soon. Since they have now officially registered, I would say that they bump Harmony from the number two spot, possibly the number one pick if they participate in any tournaments before the MSNCT. Like Kealing, they had an insane performance in a middle school tournament (Mannheim), showing they are fast on the buzzer, are quick to act on easy questions, and can beat out other elite teams (Longfellow). Furthermore, their performances at Scarsdale and Mountain Lake, while not as impressive as their middle school performance, was still excellent, showing their depth of knowledge that Kealing also has. Also, I believe that a team with two 50 ppg scorers will normally beat a one team with a player that has 100 ppg. One man teams can be more inconsistent, since they rely on one player and all players have bad days. Harmony relies on William, (arguably one of the best MS players in the country), but it may still be prone to inconsistencies that Middlesex lacks because it is not a one man team. Middlesex does not edge out Kealing because I think Kealing has a deeper depth of knowledge, which may be telling on the harder questions at the MSNCT.
UPDATE, teams I would like to see:
Barrington Station, Illinois: Station, Quest, and Marshall are turning out to be the three teams that end up in sudden death at tournaments where all three attend. It would be interesting to see how another face off would play out.
