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:
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.

Again, our apologies, but not a whole lot to be done, as Blogger hosts our site. The original post should appear once again at some time today, according to Google's Blogger Status page. More analysis and race coverage to follow.
