RR Update: Google Blogger Maintenance Issues, Aberdeen Dad Vails Underway

Apologies for the inconvenience, but Google Blogger is undergoing maintenance and has temporarily removed articles post-dating May 11, 2011. These should be restored shortly, but, in the meantime, Aberdeen Dad Vails are underway, and our picks and predictions (posted Thursday, May 12) look solid so far. In brief, here are our picks once again below, in order of predicted finish:

RR Picks for Aberdeen Dad Vails, Men's Varsity 8 Grand Final:

Virginia
Michigan
Temple
FIT
Delaware
Brock/Williams

Update from Friday Morning –
Two top contenders, Delaware and RR top pick Virginia, were placed in the same heat, with Delaware (a combination lineup of their top heavies and lights) posting the fastest time of the day in the MV8 (roughly 5:52), Virginia a close second at 5:54. The two squads look very strong and there will be some intense racing in the semis. Drexel also posted a solid result, winning their heat in 5:57, while Michigan, Williams, FIT, and Temple won their respective heats. Brock placed second in their heat behind FIT.
