State picks : Tipton 7.4%, Wabash 1.7%, Seeger 1.5%, Winchester 0.2%
Looking at these statistics it would favor a Tipton, Wabash final, but if you can figure out the winner looking at this you should work in Vegas. Looking at the Sagarin ratings I’m not quite sure how they come up with those rankings compared to who they have played.
No matter how you break these numbers down it says to me it should be one heck of a regional and that’s ”why they play the game”.
If we find anymore interesting stats we will add them to the list, just to confuse us more.
