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.

RATIONALE:

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
