In mainstream sports, the media compiles a list of the top 25 ranking teams. In the Associated Press Poll, rankings are compiled by polling sportswriters across the nation. This poll is similar, in that a qualified panel of experienced and reputable members of the California FRC community vote on who they think the top 20 California Teams are for the 2013 FRC Season.

Voters have picked teams based upon robot success shown at competitions in the past, consistency of the team, build season information about the team’s 2013 robot design and function and performance in 2013 Regionals if they have competed.  Results will be shared weekly.

This poll is clearly an opinion poll of our panel of FRC experts.  Now we’d like to know your opinion.

    2984 The Vikings for week two.

    The big reveal video:

    But seriously, they are ranked #10 in the world out of the 980 teams that have competed so far:

    And with FiM scoring, #7 in CA:

    With nine 100+ scores in San Diego (four of which were 150+), and a record of 9-1-0 in qualifiers, what’s not to like? They were only beaten in finals due to a power house alliance of your current #1 in CA (254) and the #2 team in the world (987).

    Did I mention they were third seed in SD, arguably one of the toughest regionals in the country?

    I think 2984 and 2485 (their finals alliance first pick) both deserve high spots on week 2’s chart. 4322, the third pick also performed very well in SD.

    I am a 2984 alumni and I am very proud of my team’s performance in the SD regional. Hope you guys are considering them seriously (hopefully more-so than the reveal video!).

    Also 1538 tried their darnedest to beat 2984 in the semi-finals, and were overall a good team as well.

      Impressive! The survey is out and we should have all responses back by Wednesday so that we can post the “Post Week 2 Poll” by Thursday. This is a great place to highlight your performance.
