Kansas doesn't get to play SLU? Come on, it's what the people want!

This is going to be a strong sectional with some VERY good teams being
left out of regionals....

I personally like that pools C & D get to wake up later on Saturday.
Good luck to all teams!

I still can't believe that the Ozark section has a 2nd place bracket
forcing the loser of the championship game to immediately play for 2nd/
3rd. I understand this format is necessary for regionals, but why for
sectionals? Is it to make seeding easier for regionals?

The only real benefit I forsee is potentially setting up a heralded
Harvest re-match between the jaded Ju Jitsu from Truman State and the
classy Contras from WashU. Featuring St. Louis Black Alum Caleb
"Crack-head" Stanek and Seattle standout David "Melvin Melman "
Melman, this could be a hard fought match featuring many "Whaaaaats?"
"Are you kiddings?" and "Down, I heard the disc brush the grass." .

I was just wondering if the 17 and 18 seeds should be switched, so
that Arkansas-A doesn't play Arkansas-B. There could be an opportunity
for them to throw it should it be necessary for point differential.
I'm not saying they would do this, but if they don't play, there is no
chance for it to happen.

Can we skip all of this pretense and get to the South Regionals
threads already?

From what I've heard its very unlikely that Arkansas B will be coming
to sectionals so hopefully it doesn't matter at all. That being said
I am a little wary of changing seedings to avoid an A team playing its
B team. I know that two years ago during the south region 17 team
debacle there was debate about Texas A and Texas B being in the same
pool. The regional coordinator then opted to keep the seedings as
they were even though Texas B could potential throw the game for Texas
A. I do realize that Wash U B and Arkansas B are probably
interchangeable in the 18th and 17th spots and will consider
rearranging things in an effort to be fair to everyone involved.
Thanks for the input

Are you really basing solutions to problems on the decisions and
precedents set forth by the RC of the 17 team regionals? That guy is
your source of information and knowledge? For shame!

Alright, I just thought it was a little odd. Sounds like a non-issue.
If someone else was still running this it would have turned us into
the section responsible for 17 team regionals.

I'd say that was the UPA's fault on that one, or it could have been
the mass amounts of beer we drank on Saturday night causing us to not
think clearly. Playing the b-team on sunday morning was also nice and
I think its what enabled us to get revenge on Mizzou and take that
17th spot.

I figure that it's about time to start hyping the All-Section
competitions. I've got Axl for longest flick and backhand, but I
think that Arif Sorathia from Wash U will be able to steal longest
hammer. I want to give fastest man to Bolton from OU (assuming that
he is playing his 10th year of eligibility). For highest vertical
leap, the clear choice is Matt Jackson from Arkansas. Best defender
in the cup should probably go to Caleb Stanek from Truman State. As
mentioned before, best 17 team Regional Coordinator obviously goes to
the big MH.

What ever happened to the Ozark all-section selections? I remember a
few years back when they used to publish the 1st and 2nd all-section
teams. I also recall gazing upon a picture of a very young and
innocent Karl on one of those all-section teams. With the competition
increasing it would be fun to see what the all-section teams would
look like.

You won't know his name but Aaron Hopwood will be the quite guy who
dominates everyone this weekend.

I don't want to ruin who this faceless warrior is. No one give it
away.

The quest for the Hopwood begins.

I think the cats out of the bag on Hopwood already. If your team has
any sense your already planning on how to minimize his impact against
you.

Can we also get some freshman talk here? I know Wash U has a junior
worlds player, but don't sleep on Vinny Ciaramatarro or Drew Anderson
from KU. Two freshman who have stepped in and made a big impact. I
have to think Vinny and the Evan from Wash U have to be the front
runners for freshman of the year for the South Region. What other new
comers are on the scene this year?

Kyle Todd from Missouri State. He dislocated his knee cap during the
Open finals at Harvest Moon and was back on the field by December.
Look for him and the team to turn some heads this weekend.

Matt Fletcher from OSU. 5th year senior out of Tulsa that has a
strange magic on the field. Always in the right position at the right
time. Good luck shutting him down.

You mean grass hula skirt and orange body paint guy that ESPN shows
every time they broadcast a OK State home basketball guy? Yeah, that
guy does deserve some sort of award.
