Y'know, folks, Illinois has now held two State Championships on pyramidal questions this year... and Auburn is 2 for 2.

I think most people sent in their ballots before either of those tournaments.

Exactly. I think I cast my ballot almost a month ago, but right now, it would definitely change. Rockford Auburn would definitely be higher, Wheaton North would drop some, TJ would move up, James Island would be in there somewhere, Gov would be a little higher, Wayzata may just barely miss the cut, etc. I really don't know what I'd say about the bottom 5-10 of my ballot at this point--there are several teams that are very close there.

The real WTF is Gautam putting TJ 6 spots below Richard Montgomery.

eh, I don't really know why I did that either. IIRC, When I turned my ballot in, which was early Feb, the ai rating hadn't too many stats for TJ uploaded. Also, I know there were a couple of tournaments where there was only part of TJ A playing rather than the full team, but I realized that only after I turned in my ballot.

So, that is my justification I guess.

I updated Fred's original post with ranking changes for the top 25 since the preseason poll and some other stuff.
