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.
