Can't wait. Eventually I think this thing gets down to just 8 teams per region. The website currently has 20 teams marked for the Jackson, TN region. 9 of those are marked "Eligible", and 11 are "Ineligible". Not exactly sure what that means, or how they determine who gets cut. Anyone really know the process?
In terms of the teams in our region, the Jackson TN Underdawgs were the 8 seed (out of 8) last year and pounded the 3 teams they played to win the region. Louisiana United made it to the regional final against the Jackson TN team and got pounded. Team 901 and Team Arkansas were both in it last year and lost in the 1st round. Other than that, I don't think I recognize any of the other teams in Jackson with us.
TBT will now be a 24-team tournament played all in Columbus in July. Will The Ballinteers be 1 of those 24 teams? I don't see any official list of teams that have been selected. I fear that returning teams will take precedence over new teams, but I guess it comes down to what teams will bring in the most viewers/money.
