well, mock trial regional assignments are out, and posted on the AMTA site.. all four of our teams have been assigned to joliet. here's the lineup...
JOLIET, IL. (FEB 19-20, 2005)
Bradley (2 teams), Chicago (4 teams), DePaul (2 teams), Eastern Kentucky (2 teams), Illinois-Chicago (1 team), Illinois-Urbana (2 teams), Illinois Institute of Technology (1 team), Illinois State (2 teams), Lake Forest (2 teams), Lewis (1 team), Loyola-Chicago (2 teams), North Central (1 team), St. Ambrose (1 team), St. Francis (1 team), Wheaton (1 team)
this is such a weak regional. UIC's pretty good, and UIUC, ISU, IIT, and (gag) EKU aren't completely rotten (well, EKU is rotten in that their coaches are just not nice people)...but i'll be so disappointed if our teams don't get two gold bids, if not take the top four slots at this regional.
time to work our butts off, between now and february.
