I think this is a good post/question. I'll take a crack at it, If I leave some sports I apologize.

If we are talking "national" level only (NCAA) here we go.

FB-NO Shot (I aught to get an ear full from the faithful that are still living in the glory years.)
WSOC-Slight Chance (losing their top asst. will hurt)
MSOC-Slight Chance (think this program is on the upswing though)
VB-Good Chance-depends on recruiting I guess, program always seems to be knocking on the door, which is a good thing.
FH- NO Shot (deck is stacked against them)
TEN-See FH
WBB-NO Way, NO How, NO Shot
MBB- NO shot-Be lucky to win 10 games (we'll see how that contract extension & most likelya big raise goes over when they struggle, and I am pro-Langel fan.)
MIH-Good chance (solid team and ECAC is always a dogfight, they will be just fine.)
WIH-Program is improving, will get in the ECAC play-off's this year, but still a long way to go.
MLAX- Very good chance-One of a few programs that has a legitimate shot at competing nationally (hard to play with the big boys all the time when the same level of support isn't there though.)
WLAX-Throw WLAX into same boat as men, but they probably have more support (Title IX)
SB-Slight chance-Not sure if they can breakthrough this year.
T&F/Rowing/XC-Sorry, no discussion needed.

Just an opinion, hope some teams step and surprise this year.

FB will surprise on the upside and MLAX will surprise on the downside.
