    That's a pretty damn good list. I think a few players were named because they are known names, but that's okay if you want the fans and sponsors to be happy, I guess. Really happy Mia and Abby were named though. I don't see the South losing this one. Too much talent in a concentrated area.

    Marcia Brady and Coach K. (who really doesn't coach the Charge...it's the Charge fans who tell him what to do and all Coach K. does is relay this info to his team) will pick 5 for their teams with the help of DiCicco soon.
