COAST 2 COAST PREDICTIONS

SEMIFINALS
#2 Team Thrill vs. #11 Team Jacko
#5 Team Takeover Black vs. New York Lions

FINALS
#2 Team Thrill vs #5 Team Takeover Black

The championship game will take place on Sunday afternoon at 3:20 PM eastern time. Lets make this simple, you could put Team Thrill against any team in this spot in the nation and we are taking Thrill. Even though ranked currently #2 in the country, we think they are the best team in the nation. They haven't had a game in this tournament closer than 20 even though have had the hardest schedule in the tournament and the hardest semi-final game. We think they win every game en route to the title by 8-10 points.
