Thread: Conference tournaments

    Default Conference tournaments

    Did we decide if we were going to let the winner of the conference week in? And if so, how are we going to count the tournament week since not all conference tournaments are in the same week?

    As of yet, we made no such decision.

    Feel free to start the poll if you want, though. I thought about doing it myself, but I don't want to seem like I'm pushing for it since I could potentially be the benefactor. It would take 6 "Yes" votes for such a thing to pass.

    Honestly, as much as it would probably help me, we only have 10 people participating at this point, and 6/10 in the playoffs is probably pretty generous already. It pains me to say that.

    Don't think we should be doing this 2 weeks before. This is a rule that should have been set in place way before now.

    There have been other things mentioned that were not able to be changed since we didn't do it in the middle of the season. I don't think we should give the guy who stocks up on the most So. Con guys a shot at the playoffs.

    As Gold said there already are 2 guys who basically didn't play so there are still over half of us that are going to make the playoffs. If you didn't make the top 6 out of 10 then you really don't deserve to make it.

    I say all this being on the bubble with an insanely good conference lineup

    25-pac 10 champ
    33 big 10 champ-ness
    41-acc champ-krom pwns diaz
    49-So con champ-gayesk=2x so con champ
    57 pac 10 champ-hall has separated himself
    65 Caa champ-brown 2x caa champ
    74 EIWA champ-lewnes owns all
    84 EWL champ-bradshaw ranked 1st all year, no challengers
    97 ACC champ-hudson
    hvy EIWA runner up-steele could very well win it.
    Flex: Ruschell or Meade-2 studs in good weights but one will make the finals probably.

    If you guys wanna tangle with that go for it but I'm not seeing anyone comparable.

    125: Pac10 runner up
    133: MAC runnerup/champ, CAA champ
    141: Big10 Champ
    149: EIWA Champ
    157: Big10 runner up
    165: WWC Champ
    174: MAC Champ, PAC10 Champ
    184: sort of a weak spot for conferences, but either of my guys could sneak into the finals
    197: Big12 Champ
    285: ACC champ, Probable Pac10 Champ

    The fact is a lot of people are going to have a lot of conference champs. It's going to come down to which wrestlers are the best on that day.

    Ok well then we should decided on this BEFORE NOW. This doesn't loook good Gold and I'd expect you to not put yourself in this situation.

    60% going to playoffs is plenty, doesnt need to be 70. If we are going to do this lets just let everyone in!?

    There were other things that you said no to because we should have decided on it beforehand. That's how you HAVE done it, it's how Jensens DOES it and you shouldn't go back on what was your current policy.

    It's ridiculous you won't take an hour late lineup(when it has no bearing whatsoever on the competition and is just a random time) because you are a "stickler" and you are willing to add a playoff spot that clearly(though i dont think) would be to your benefit. Think about how this looks man.

    Chill out, dude. I wasn't suggesting we should do it, I was comparing my conference lineup with yours after you said "If you guys wanna tangle with that go for it but I'm not seeing anyone comparable."

    Think about how it looks? Look at my own post... "Honestly, as much as it would probably help me, we only have 10 people participating at this point, and 6/10 in the playoffs is probably pretty generous already. It pains me to say that."

    That's what I said and I haven't said anywhere that we should change it. Did I start a poll? No. I said if someone else is interested, they can do it.

    You both make good points. I like the rule because I benifited from it last year, but it was the rule from the beggining of the season last year as well. I'm inclined to say that we shouldnt have it because it is very late in the game to make this decision. Had we made a decision to let that person in when we first talked about it I would be for it. It's a tough call, I say the more the merrier but then that makes the regular season basically meaningless if we let seven of basically eight guys in.

    Did you forget that you're the commissioner and are in charge of this and can make this call? You could have squelched this talk immediately.

    There are a lot of things that I probably could do as commissioner but do not do. If you are commissioner some day, feel free to try and "squelch" things as you see fit. Meanwhile, I'm not required to act in compliance with your whims or likings.

    I prefer to hear input (after all, this isn't just my league) and deliberate some to make sure I don't make any decision out of haste if I don't have to. Anyway, absolutely ZERO action has even been taken about this, so why are you still bitching?
