Eric Mukherjee final

An Eric Mukherjee Final is a somewhat mean-spirited name for a game or series of play-in games to determine second place at a tournament. They only plausibly can occur when the first place team clears the field, and since second place is rarely played off, they tend to only happen during ACF Nationals. They are so-named for the fact that Eric Mukherjee participated in two sets of them, at 2014 ACF Nationals and 2018 ACF Nationals. In spite of Jacob Reed having also done this, they are named for Eric due to his frequent references to the 2018 instance, which he won, as "the finals" of ACF Nationals, which somehow overwrites the fact that he has played in several actual ACF Nationals finals and won the 2015 instance.
