Once again... apples to oranges. The PSP is an entirely different series. In the NCPA you'll get teams that have a core of middle-of-the-pack players sprinkled with a few PSP players. In the PSP you obviously get all PSP players. I would equate most Class A teams to a division 4 xball team in the PSP, with the exception of certain NCPA teams that have been fortunate enough to build up a roster of experienced players. I thoroughly enjoyed nationals last year and saw some solid teams, but I'd be lying if I said that the NCPA is more competitive than the PSP. When I go play a PSP event, I'm doing it because I'm playing in the premier American national league with players that know exactly what they're doing, and I expect to grind it out with some of the best teams in the country. When I go play an NCPA event, I'm doing it because it's cheap, it's fun, and it beats sitting through a 2 hour engineering lecture.
