Few talking points:
- Pool play games only supply one in-region match-up, which was unavoidable as there are 5 teams representing the Southeast. Big props to TD David Branick for really taking the time to seed this well.
- Crossover play produces two regional match-ups, where one results from Southpaw getting upset by Boost Mobile in pool play. Should this happen, Philly vs. Oakland may be an exciting preview of the backdoor game-to-go, if the Mid-Atlantic can get a strength bid.
- If Boost takes second in Pool D and the Condors hold seed, one of the SW teams will be playing lower competition after Prequarters on Sunday. This could be another early look of a game-to-go and is a rematch of the finals of the So-Cal Slammer (Labor Day Qualifier) where Boost won on universe.
- Ironside vs. Chain would be a repeat of the 2010 Chesapeake Invite finals as well as the semis at 2011 Nationals, where Boston held off a huge comeback from Atlanta to win on universe.
