Proposal on Nationals Format

Proposal by Jeff Starr

Top 8 teams compete for the cup at nationals, the other teams would play round robin games on Sunday.


Undeniably the likely game of GV vs OU isn’t going to be anywhere near close and I don’t see why it should even be played.

The high seed must go through the motions of playing a game which adds more games to the total over the weekend. Playing a total of 7 if you go to the championship must be completely brutal for any thrower out there and eliminating one game that is going to be a blowout would make it easier on them.

The lower ranked teams would be able to play more dodgeball. Instead of being knocked out 1st round in a blowout they could play more teams and more importantly more teams that they could have a close games with.

I don’t believe any team below a 4 rank has ever won it all at nationals and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, so including the top 8 teams would be more than enough
