Tally Classic 2010 – Quarterfinals

The Sunday Morning Bracket started without much of a hitch as all of the first round games went to seed and went there easily. As soon as the team’s that had been able to sleep in rolled up to the fields. Things started to get dicey and fast.

Michigan State was matched up with Wheaton College, Virginia faced off against Florida State meanwhile Notre Dame had a rematch with Georgia Southern and Clemson had a replay of Saturday’s contest with Georgia Tech.

Aside from Burning Couch’s big win over Wheaton, this round was as closely contested as any at the Tally Classic. Clemson topped Georgia Tech on a capped universe point, Notre Dame staved off Georgia Southern after being down a break in the first half and Virginia and Florida State got a late start but Night Train barely prevailed 9-7.

Tally Classic 2010 – Round Three – Notre Dame Papal Rage vs. Georgia Southern Eagles

Unfortunately for us, we hadn’t seen a truly competitive game until at the beginning of our third round at Tally Classic. That’s not to say that there weren’t any, just none that we were witness to.

That was all to change as we watched the Notre Dame Papal Rage face off against the Georgia Southern Eagles. Notre Dame won the Tally Classic last year and were certainly one of the favorites to win the tournament again this year but Georgia Southern’s results so far this season indicate that they are a team that is capable of playing on just about any level.

In the end though, Notre Dame’s experience would come out on top as Papal Rage won by a count of 13-8.

Weekend Roundup: In Which Teams Actually Play Ultimate

Three (nearly) full tournaments were played this weekend, in what proved to be the first weekend of the preseason that was not severely affected by inclement weather. That being said, teams attending Queen City Tuneup had to deal with snow and shortened round times while teams attending Mardi Gras had to deal with bayous encroaching into the middle of the field. Meanwhile, President’s Day frolicked out West like one would expect Californians to.

After the jump is this weekend’s recap. It may be of some interest to many of you but we are making some efforts to get in touch with the UPA, Mike Gerics and George Mason’s Ultimate program to try and sort out just what went down this last weekend. It would be somewhat of a tragedy in our opinion if the UPA decided to go through with what, at the moment, seems like a rash and harsh decision.

That being said, we’re reserving judgment for the time being because, having played against Gerics and knowing his history, we would not be the least bit surprised if this suspension was deserved.

Perhaps we shouldn’t say anything in order to avoid alienating any of the parties involved but we wanted you, the readers, to know that we’re on the case to get the story from all involved. Good luck to all teams searching for sanctioned games.

CCC LIII: Our Final Impressions

So, CCC is finally over. This will, most likely, be our last post on the topic. That being said, we think that we saw a lot about the future of college Ultimate this weekend. We wouldn’t be surprised to see four or even five teams from this tournament make an appearance in Madison this summer.

 One team in the Georgia/South Carolina made a name for itself early on in this preseason. The Georgia Southern Eagles sprinted out of the gates to a 13-0 record and had two tournament victories (Frozen Goose and Battle in the Boro) under their belts. However, March would roll around and GSU would fine that its season was not going to go exactly as planned.

“We went into the Chucktown (Throwdown) 13-0 expecting to win out the weekend,” Georgia Southern junior captain Ryan Randall wrote us in an e-mail. “After our first 2 games we were 0-2 and our heads were down.”
