Hey, you know what would be awesome is if a) there were a field update indicating who is coming to this tournament, and b) we could get some packets from this region.

Its looking like this is going to be a quadruple round-robin between USC A, USC B, Southside, and a House team (which will be Clemson's regular line-up). Meet in Daniel Hall Auditorium between 8:30 and 8:45. Games start at 9.

So UNC dropped and we have no confirmation from UGA?

With regards to the stats, USC B actually went 2-6 instead of 1-7.

We defeated Duke in round 4 as well. The scores are reversed, with us having 195 and Duke having 135.

I enjoyed reading at this site. Thanks to Clemson for hosting, and a special thanks to Coach Huff for TDing. All of the teams were quite competitive. Although I didn't play, the set seemed enjoyable, and I hope more teams in the Southeast in the future will take part in ACF Regionals, as it is usually a very good tournament. Considering the very good turnout for ACF Fall and Winter at the Southeast sites, it seems odd that Regionals is consistently under-attended.

Phong is indeed correct on the stat thing.
