Hypothetically can a team loose it's bid to regionals after it has
been awarded one? If SUNY Purchase or Vassar B were to somehow go to
Metro NY sectionals could American loose out? I know that a section
can't loose a bid to regionals after they have completed sectionals if
a team drops from another section, but is the same true for a team
adding at the last minute also true?

Queen's didn't get the rosters in on time but there were a few reasons
behind it. Our exam period is all of April (since Canadian schools
end earlier) and many players' exams were at the same time as
Sectionals. Right up until the day before the rostering deadline, we
only had 6 people that could attend because of conflicts. As well,
it's school policy that exams cannot be moved due to Athletic reasons,
so we were begging professors to help us out. Finally, on the day
before, we convinced a final prof and we had enough players. We then
quickly, by the deadline, did all online stuff and UPA received all
documentation the following week. We did not submit everything
earlier because it looked like we couldn't play. Foolish error now
that we look back at it.

We applied for an extension (on time) on the basis that school policy
on athletics and exams gave us issues with fielding a team. We
thought this was enough, until a week later we received more
information from the UPA that it could only be granted if it's the
Registrar's fault. Obviously, this was not the case and it was
rejected.

So it was not a simple case of missing the deadline. There were some
extenuating circumstances that should have been considered but weren't.

It should be noted that one of the three best teams in this region
isn't going to be at regionals.

I never heard the whole story behind that. What was the reason behind
Queens' ineligibility?

Unfortunately, SUNY-Lameass dropped out of Metro-NY Sectionals,
leaving us with just two bids to regionals instead the three we had
this morning.

Queen didn't get their rosters in on time... The registrar said it
wasn't their fault, meaning they didn't have a leg to stand on in

Yes, West Penn now has 3 bids again. Bucknell also pulled together a B
team getting us back up to 15 teams

Was bucknell B one of the teams that dropped in the first place?

I don't really care, but i'm curious how you go about pulling a team
together after the roster deadline.

Bucknell B was originally on the team list and was only taken off
because of a miscommunication.

Before this gets out of hand:

Earlier this week, West Penn had two teams say they weren't coming to
Sectionals: Bucknell-B and Gettysburg-B. Both were properly
registered by the roster deadline. Yesterday Bucknell-B contacted the
SC (who in turn contacted the RC, who then contacted UPA HQ) to say
that it turns out they would be able to field a team. Also yesterday,
Metro NY SC was contacted by SUNY-Purchase and told that they would
not be participating in Sectionals.

This took Metro NY down to 2 bids, and kept West Penn at 3 bids, with
the extra bid allocated to Colonial. Of course, if teams do not post
at Sectionals this weekend, the bid allocation will be adjusted, so
nothing is quite set in stone yet.

Unfortunately stupidity does not count as an "extenuating
circumstance". On the bright side you can now claim to be in the
region's top three.

Thats not stupidity. I would consider Canadian schools ending earlier
as an extenuating circumstance that should be considered.

Not if they did not have the foresight to at least try to make sure
their players were eligible. The schedule was not preventing them from
submitting a roster on time.

Well, they could have submitted a roster then decided not to play if
they couldn't field a team.

With only 2 bids out of NY/NJ, TCNJ as the two seed is far from a sure
thing to regionals. But if they make it, weather is going to be sooo
critical at regionals. Towson and TCNJ have similar styles:
"patient" (like molasses) smart O and a very consistent and focused
zone D. Towson knocked out GW a couple weeks ago, and it is not like
GW can't move the disc. At Roll Call, TCNJ was able to edge out
Towson... so I think if weather conditions inhibit the run-and-gun,
there will be some broken hearts in the Garden State.

Also, I agree with this "Bill" person from American. "The man in the
yellow hat" from American is one to watch and not guard.

Pool play finishes sunday.

Hofstra (B2, 3rd overall) was DQ'd for using an ineligible player

A2 Hofstra comes back from something like 9-4 to win 11-10 (all games
to 11) against #1 overall NYU. Hofstra went undefeated on the day and
is locked into the #1 seed.

Rutgers and NYU (both 4-1) play tomorrow for 2nd/3rd in A Pool; TCNJ
undefeated in B pool, it sounds like A3 Princeton and A4 Columbia are
locked into the 2/3 slots in B-Pool.

So, It will be TCNJ vs Hofstra for the championships;

Rutgers, NYU, Columbia and Princeton will play out to go up against
the loser of that game for the second big to Regionals.

Pool A:
1. Vassar (5-0)
2-3. NYU/Rutgers (4-1) (play first thing tomorrow)

Pool B:
1. TCNJ/Columbia (4-0) (first thing tomorrow)
3. Princeton (2-2)

Hofstra was dq'd because their captains name wasn't on their roster
somehow. Sounds like it was just some sort of crazy mistake.

Vassar came back from 9-4ish to knock off NYU 11-10.

Princeton is 3-2 after today. The whole Hofstra thing was just
stupid. No one was happy with the decision. We all really would have
liked to play our games against Hofstra. They had a real shot at
regionals and were not intentionally cheating. The whole thing sounds
kind of weird. Oh well. Rules are rules I guess.

In the West Penn, looks like Dickinson over Penn State was the only
upset. They probably don't have a shot at stealing a bid, but they
are a very good team.

Even after this mess I'm still 99% sure I added myself to the roster
as the first person on the list. Why wouldn't I? I don't really know
where the error happened along the way or how I ended up not on the
roster, but rules are rules I guess. Just a shame for all the seniors
on the team as having that as their way of going out. Still had a big
moral win though over Princeton and it would have been interesting to
see what would have happened if we were able/allowed to continue
playing

Anyway.......Greg Owens (TCNJ #15) for All region! You heard it here

Official list up: Maryland, Georgetown, Towson, American, Penn,
Drexel, Lehigh, Cornell, RPI, Carleton U, SUNY-Buffalo, Pitt,
Bucknell, Edinboro, Vassar, Columbia.

I see the top four, in order, as Pitt, Cornell, UMD, Penn, with
Georgetown in the 5th spot. I think the GTown vs. Penn is interesting,
but Penn had some signature wins, including NC State & a Harvard win
at (muddy ass) Roll Call. Georgetown's signature wins are, I think, UM-
Duluth, Vermont, and Bucknell. So I say Penn has the edge here. As for
after that, things get a bit messier. Start your prognosticating.

I'll second that. Greg Owens has transformed TCNJ into the team that
it is today. If it weren't for SUNY-Purchase dropping, you would all
see him dominating next weekend at regionals. He's only a sophomore,
but the entire offense runs through him, and he seems to be able to
score points at will. Absolutely unguardable. Anyone who has ever
seen him play will agree. Believe the hype. Greg Owens is the real
deal.

I liked that guy from TCNJ in the bandanna better. Too bad TCNJ could
not get out of their section... cool bunch of guys.

#24. I thought he was a good player, too... especially the layout D
and then game winning catch against Princeton to get to the game to go
against Columbia.

Alright not enough talk about pittsburgh. Has your FOTY candidate
played for the us junior national team? A. Thorne did. He plays for
pitt. Has your FOTY candidate killed a man? The Coroner has. also
pitt.

All region, pitt deserves at least three like usual. murderzmarek is
probably good, same with peters, chowder, hambone. I've heard good
things about pannone, any truth to that? I've hyped christo enough, a
bit obvious. The one lock from last year's ME all-region roster was
dulabon, who didn't get it, despite being our best player. This year
the lock is Jake Christian, #35.

Jake's story is analagous to the one of Jason Statham. Statham's
acting career started when a director needed a guy who looked tough,
had a sweet voice, and looked like he wanted to hurt people. The guy
didn't need to act. When Jake joined pitt ultimate, he didn't really
look tough or have a sweet voice, but it was clear he liked hurting
people. He also had little if any frisbee skills. He was simply on
the field to hurt dudes. At pitt, he enjoyed a successful damaging
career. But as pitt improved, Jake's skills needed improve if he was
to stay on the roster. Hurting dudes alone was simply not going to be
enough. So, just like Statham decided to study acting, Jake decided
to improve his frisbee skills. He's pretty good now. And despite
droppin bombs left and right, he has not abondoned his bruising ways.
At roll call he thunderclapped a dude so hard, it could be heard
twelve timezones away. I can personally assure you that that is a
fact. For a more accurate, less hyperbole-ridden summary of jake's
frisbee career, consult here: http://www.pitt.edu/~sorc/frisbee/roster/players/Christian_J ake.html

Oh and not on the topic of pitt; edinboro has a dude named "The
Sauce", #71, all-region, lock it up.

#24 is Dave Stoddard, one of our captains this year. He's graduating
this spring a year early to clean aquariums i think. Sounds like a
poor choice on his part but he seems set on it. On a more serious
note. although Greg is hands down our most talented player Dave is
unquestionably the heart and soul of the team. Replacing him next
year will be a tall order. Good season buddy.

I remember him from the Hofstra tournament and yeah he was good and
the entire offense ran through him but I don't think he was
significantly different then Fat Zac is to our team. Plus from what I
have heard, your team has to do well at regionals for you to have a
shot at making all region.

I was going to try to reclaim my dignity but it seems as if Dave
already did that for me. Thanks, Dave.

Also, I declare shenanigans on ME only getting 2 bids to Regionals. I
feel that the quality of the teams in each Section should decide how
many bids are given. SUNY-Buffalo in Regionals?? No disrespect but
come on, they're not even going to put up a good fight let alone a
good game to watch. TCNJ should have been at Regionals, we would've
played hard, won some and lost some but it would have been exciting
for teams to watch us and learn about who we are.

I was going to try to reclaim my dignity but it seems as if Dave
already did that for me. Thanks, Dave.

Also, I declare shenanigans on ME only getting 2 bids to Regionals. I
feel that the quality of the teams in each Section should decide how
many bids are given. SUNY-Buffalo in Regionals?? No disrespect but
come on, they're not even going to put up a good fight let alone a
good game to watch. TCNJ should have been at Regionals, we would've
played hard, won some and lost some but it would have been exciting
for teams to watch us and learn about who we are.

Also, Watch out for Columbia. They're a bit of a sleeper team this
year seeing as they sucked balls in the Fall, didn't play in any UPA
validated tourneys this Spring and raped face at Sectionals. They
have a decent deep game, but mainly quick handles/in-cuts. Poach them
in.
