UOA Nationals Update

November 20, 2010

Just got off the phone with a friend from Virginia. He said the following:

  • Today was really windy, with the second round of the day being a solid 20-25mph throughout. In general it seemed like that just brought scores closer together. Since Virginia Tech is a.) tall, b.) comfortable playing zone, and c.) happy to play the 50/50 huck game, them upsetting Pitt isn’t all that shocking. Burn has always had big wins in them, they just tend to come when it’s not the Series. I think a lot of people in the former Atlantic Coast area will be looking to see if they can get over that hump this year.
  • Pitt played good D in the wind. En Sabah Nur ran a straight up mark in the middle of the field with poaches in the lane, and then set a strong trap once the disc was swung to the sidelines. Pretty good strategy in the wind, lots of college teams have trouble on the sidelines even in calm conditions.
  • Pitt’s defensive offense moved the disc well. Apparently they have one handler in particular that drives their offense after the turn. My boy said he was wearing #42, but there isn’t a #42 on their Score Reporter page. Anyone?

Cool. We’ll see what’s up tomorrow.

    Pitt’s #42 isn’t on the score reporter because he is a freshman.

    Marcus Dropcho.

    That’s not true. His name is Marcus Aurelis, emperor of the Broman Army. He’s a transfer student who happens to be 1,840 years old.
