Re: Order of Strength Discussion

good. When I painstakingly cull all pertinent results and try to provide a cogent analysis, and in return gets being carelessly 'labeled' as 'hung up', it really hurts me, you know

maybe this thread should be closed, since some 'seems' to ridicule these 'detective' works
maybe the subject matter is too 'controversial' All is good and well, it's a perfect world after all

Re: Order of Strength Discussion

NCAA's (this was mentioned a week ago elsewhere as a questionable move)

Just heard from a booster who made the trip to Palo Alto

# 1 Stanford's attempt to jump Mallory Burdette from # 2 directly to # 4 must have been protested by some team (Florida?) and the posted Stanford line for the NCAA's has her back at # 2.

First, the move from # 2 to # 4 without any other line up change is strictly illegal.

Second, when you are 7-3 in your last ten dual matches at # 2 and all your loses came 4-6, 4-6 or one of those turkey shoot third set super tie breakers... you really have no legit argument to defend even a one place move.

Sounds like the Stanford coach must be looking to adjust her match up with Florida or someone later in the draw? Cause they obviously will advance without such shennanigans.

Even # 1 looks for ways to gain a line up advantage. Tisk tisk.

Re: Order of Strength Discussion

Stanford obviously did it for a reason and didn't mind paying the $300 fine if it got overturned. I don't know who protested, but I wonder why a player who has been at 2 most of the season is dropped that low. Sure smells fishy. And it's not like they had to do it anyhow, cause Ahn and Gibbs are unbeaten at 3 and 4 this season
