I currently live in Missouri, but moving to Kansas prior to tournament. Born in Lawrence so I guess that makes me more of a Kansas guy historically. Technically tied for Kansas qualification at Rosedale and will do best to qualify for MO. But are there any rules/precedents on this?
The whole historical, where your heart is, thing was shot down last year. You can only play for the team on the side which you live.
So what's the residency cut-off? It could be set as the date of the event. But I think the fairest thing to do, for the captains, is to put the cut-off at 2 weeks prior to the event. That is when tentative rosters are supposed to be set each year. Where you reside, on that date, ultimately determines which side you're eligible for. This year that date is May 24th.
I think it logical that if you qualify for one side, then move to the other side of the line, your spot on the moved-from team doesn't travel with you.
Babbit, Joe would have to determine what he'll do about the tied for spot. But begs the question; do you have to live on the side when you qualify for that side?
If we are drafting players to Kansas, we will take Kelly Babbit and give you Dick Parker. I kid, I kid...
I'd rather not...
