During the Team competition;
Can the coach switch the lineup at will?
Like..can coach Thornquist play #1 as
Will vs Capra
Embree vs Gullickson
Embree vs Gibbs?
And, can we check how others predicted at that site Amal registered?
Also, can we submit different picks at the Main Pool & Private Pool which Amal created? I might pick STAN/UF as the winner at Main and USC at Private
I have a free TRN acct, but can't log in at that sight
Do I have to make a separate acct to compete? Weird..
I wanted to have the rules and answers for questions like your lineup switch question. I found the 2011 Handbook
, which says that lineup switches are not allowed. Google did not turn up this year's handbook.
Last year's handbook quote, (p21 it says)
The lineup for championship play is submitted to the referee at the mandatory
coaches meeting before the start of competition. The lineup must consist of:
• student-athletes listed on the official NCAA lineup form submitted not later than
Monday, May 2;
• a minimum of six players present and physically capable of competing; and
• a maximum of eight players, including any doubles specialists.
In singles competition, position Nos. 1-5 shall remain the same for the duration of the
championship. Position No. 6 may be filled with any of the three remaining players on
the lineup, and may change from match to match.
The student-athletes listed on a team’s lineup for the first round will remain the same
for the second round. Teams advancing to the championships finals site may change
the eight student-athletes on their lineup for the round of 16. The student-athletes
listed on a team’s lineup for the round of 16 will remain the same for the quarterfinals,
semifinals and finals. Any student-athlete listed on a lineup must have been listed on
the team’s original lineup form.
Lineups for the 64 teams selected to the championship will be posted on the NCAA’s
) 30 minutes after the completion of the selection show,
Tuesday, May 3.
