that was one incredible act of good sportsmanship - the way your OPPONENT pushed your upsidedown robot back on its feet
so it could play to the best of its ability!
[yeah! thats what happened - they MEANT to push it upright again]
and I have some swamp land for sale too :c)

Um... the opponent didn't push it back up. It was trying to push it off and 314 got stuck in the mesh so they were wedging upwards a little. 783 then pushed on the opponent so the wedge caused 314 to flip back up. I know the opponents didn't mean for that to happen :)

I know - I was right there :c)
I actually did see an opponent push a robot back on its feet - back in '98 at Rutgers
I believe it was a quarterfinal, just two robots on the field, one on one
and one got tipped up off its wheels halfway through the match.
the other team came over immediately and pushed it back on its feet (deliberately) so it could continue to play.
The crowd was on its feet!
Sportsmanship was completely different back then (a kinder and gentler FIRST?)

Both of the matches in Quarter Final 3 were pretty amazing to watch, a lot of back and forth it was hard to tell who was winning at times. It may not have been a deciding factor for the regional in the end, but I thought that this quarter final was the most exciting, and they were also the 2nd and 3rd most exciting matches I'd been invovled in. (#1 is match #92 scoreing 160 regular points before QP was factored in, 202 QP).
