Well with the schools gearing up for regionals where the top 16 teams will host, this year's race to win is wide open.
The top 16 teams are...
1 79.75 Baylor University
2 77.04 North Carolina
3 75.26 University of Florida
4 69.67 University of Michigan
5 65.51 Northwestern University
6 65.22 University of Notre Dame
7 64.31 UCLA
8 62.86 Stanford
9 58.75 Clemson University
10 57.87 Duke University
11 54.86 University of Miami (Florida)
12 51.00 California
13 49.42 Georgia Tech
14 47.91 University of Tennessee
15 44.87 Florida State University
16 39.38 University of Mississippi
I think with the exceptions of Clemson and Duke, any of the top 10 teams have what it takes to win at the end. I am betting my darkhorses money on Tennessee and Ga Tech.
Even the teams outside the 16 like UGA and Texas could go far, too, if their star players all play well.
But, when you get right down to it, Baylor & Florida are in the class of their own. I wouldn't be surprised to see these two battling it out for the title. But, it's all too soon to call anything for sure just yet.
What are your thoughts???
