Questions for Day 2

October 28, 2010
  • What do Ironside and Revolver look like? I ask this mostly because I didn’t intently watch either very much today. I had planned to, but other games kept getting really good (Chain v. Furious was probably my favorite today, but Doublewide v. Ring and Bravo’s 17-15 win over Southpaw were pretty good too) and every time I looked into an Ironside or Revolver game, they were dominating.  So I guess it’s safe to say that they’re doing alright, that the systems that got them to this point didn’t malfunction on Day 1, and that they’re the most well-rested teams heading into power pools. Still, it’d be good to have a little bit of a better feel for how they look here on this particular weekend and at this particular location… you know, the hot and humid one that makes discs really wet in the morning. I’ll look to watch them a lot tomorrow.
  • What will Doublewide and Ironside look like? To me, they’re the biggest contrast in terms of style among the top teams. Doublewide moves it with lots of throws that range from 25-30 yards and lets it fly quite a bit, whereas Ironside just kind of digs away at defenses. Also, I want to see how Ironside sets up to stop Doublewide’s flow.
  • Can Truck Stop rally? They looked kind of beat against Furious, but really got it together and played well against Chain. A lot of their young guys stepped up to make big plays, and I have a feeling that they’ll bring energy tomorrow. My question, really, is if their vets will do the same. My bet is yes, but I also bet that Ring v. Sockeye would be the best game of the day so that’s yet another piece of proof that I’m an idiot. Either way, there’s a lot riding on Truck’s game against Bravo.
  • Will Chain v. Revolver be sweet? Probably. Revolver has been pretty straightforward about how excited they are for the rematch from last year, and  winning would mean avoiding Ironside. The only thing is, I’m not sure that Chain would mind playing Boston instead of Texas. It was both a bit easier to see why Doublewide gave them trouble at Regionals, as Doublewide’s continuation cuts are hard to guard, and playing against a zone in the wind isn’t really Chain’s strength. Also, Chain played Ironside pretty close at Chesapeake, which could have them feeling good about the match up.

Thanks a lot to everyone following along. The comments and tweets are a lot of fun, so keep it coming and I’ll try to do the same.
