Groger Ranks 2019-2020 Preseason Poll (Results Posted)!

Post by sZwx74 »

Hi everyone!

Groger Ranks is excited to kick off the new season by announcing the 2019-2020 Preseason Poll. This poll is open to all players, coaches, and others who feel they have a grasp on the high school quizbowl landscape for this upcoming schoolyear. Please rank the teams that you feel will be top 25 next season and fill out your ballot in order.

Some quick notes on filling out the ballot:
  • When filling out this poll, please do not abbreviate team names at all. Specifically, please use the name of the team as it appears in the official standings for last year's HSNCT (https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament/s ... nt_id=9500). If a team did not go to HSNCT, use your best judgment but try to be as standard and official as possible with your naming conventions.
  • In addition, please put a letter with every team, even if you don't think it needs it. For example, Uni Lab should be input as University Lab A, even if they did not carry a letter designation at HSNCT.
  • You don't have to be a high schooler to vote.
  • There is an option to remain anonymous if voters would like.
  • We reserve the right to remove any ballots with very "hot takes" or obvious ulterior motives if they lack coherent justification.
To vote, please fill out this form by September 1st. Thank you for voting!

Just a reminder that there are only a couple days left to submit your ballot for the Groger Ranks Preseason Poll! All ballots are due by midnight on September 1st.

Just to reiterate, here are a few guidelines to follow when filling out our rankings that will make it easier for us here at Groger Ranks to compile the poll results (and therefore getting them released to you faster)!
  • Please put down the name of a team exactly as it was listed on the HSNCT 2019 results, which can be found here. That includes using special symbols such as the & in "Thomas Jefferson Science & Tech A". Always remember to check your spelling!
  • Please remember to always add a letter designation. If a team does not normally carry a letter designation or their school only sends one team to tournaments, just add an "A" after the team name.
  • Some people may have accidentally added spaces to the end of some team names. While seemingly mundane, this is actually quite annoying for us, so please make sure that doesn't happen.
If you realized that you made any of these mistakes in submitting your ballot, please do not bother to go back and fix it; we have dealt with every ballot submitted so far. We have also made it so that you can go back and edit your submission if you would like. Thank you for voting in the Groger Ranks Preseason Poll!

Could there be a separate thread just for Groger Ranks polls and results?
