Shea Nations Picks

This weekend at the 41st Busch Classic Major NIT in Sherwood, AR there will be 31 teams and 4 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 1 AA, 4 A, 10 B and 16 C teams.  Vivid/FBI/PTG/Worth is the #1 overall seed.  The other Conference teams looking to upset them are: Klutch/Hubs Pub/Worth; SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC/ELITE/MIKEN; and GORILLAS/Hart Handyman/M.E.E. LLC/B.  Also, non-conference team and Sooner Invitational Champion Legion of Boom/DFW Sports is looking to win its 2nd Conference event.

Busch Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: Vivid versus Legion of Boom and Olmito Heat versus Klutch.  In the losers bracket I predict Arkansas Conference team Vivid to fight through the loser's bracket to run out of gas in the championship game.

Final Picks for the Busch Major:
1. Legion of Boom/DFW Sports
2. Vivid/FBI/PTG/Worth
3. Klutch/Hubs Pub/Worth
4. Olmito Heat
5. SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC/ELITE/MIKEN
    GORILLAS/Hart Handyman/M.E.E. LLC/B

 

Oldscout pollers have tied for the 1st time ever.  Seminoles and Vivid!
