Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.
What difference does it make?
Okay, you don't care. We get it.
I do care and you should know better than to accuse me of not caring. That being said, take a look at the statistics from last weekend Jose. The Lawrence players didn't cost us the tournament...
Cooper (Some would call Tonganoxie-Lawrence) 1-2
Lawrence didn't win the West. But we love those guys either way. Babbit, Liz, and Clemons won (9-0). But don't worry, Clemons is a true Missourian, and I'm sure you will have him back before too long. But we want Shanan back when that happens, cuz I know he bleeds blue.
Until then, like Tracy said, it is "which side is better". Why should it matter whether we have a few better players. KU always had better players than Mizzou. Mizzou didn't whine, (too much), they just tried to play their best to beat them, and once in a while that would happen. Maybe that will happen for you guys....someday.
First of all, congrats to the West Side for their comeback victory and thanks to the captains for administering the Team Challenge.
I'm not overly concerned that the. Lawrence players played for the West Side, but you can't say they didn't have an impact on the West Side victory. I don't think anyone would argue the players from Lawrence are strong. Both captains knew this, and it affected how matchups were selected. If you replaced the Lawrence players with another group, it's likely those players would be weaker and would have a greater probability of losing matches than the players they replaced.
Once again, congrats on 4 in a row for the West Side. I look forward to 2017 and I'd love the opportunity to captain the East Side to victory next year.
