Who Coached with a John (V) Neun?

While I was coaching last weekend in Atlanta, I had the honor of coaching a match with the father of Chief Delphi's most famous celebrity, Mr. John Neun of Team #20. So, just out of curiousity, who got to coach with a John (V) Neun in Atlanta?

Re: Who Coached with a John (V) Neun?

I got to coach a match with Paul Copioli. Surely the WFA winner counts for something. I also strategized a match versus 71 with Karthik, a regional WFA. We won both matches even though they looked rather imposing. I wonder if there's any correlation there?

I know this thread is about those who coached with a Neun, but I had the great honor of being coached by one JVN. He is an amazing coach and strategist.

Re: Who Coached with a John (V) Neun?

I have never had the chance to coach with or even against JVN. I would have loved to have gotten that chance. I've seen him in action and imho he's pretty awesome (of course having Jay as a driver and Adrienne as a boss helps smooth out the rough edges ).

I did get the chance to coach with JVN's dad in an Archimedes q-round. I was excited because I thought we had a good chance to win. The discussions of strategy before the match were excellent, and we had a good solid game plan worked out. So what happened? Well for one, I made a dumb call, we tipped a robot, and got shut off. So much for impressing the Neun family....

Did you know that John Neun and his son gave a cool presentation at the FRC Conference in Atlanta? It was on drivetrain design and it covered some mathematical approaches to calculating proper gear ratios, etc. It was a great example of how math is used in real life to make design choices.

Re: Who Coached with a John (V) Neun?

JVN and I had a great match together on Curie. It was both 229 and 269's last qualifier match and we wanted to finish the weekend on a good note. Both of our robots were performing well all weekend but our W-L records were not showing it and we needed a good final match to impress the pickers.

269 and 229 basically mirrored each other the entire match, picking up single tetras and strategically capping them where we needed to. We ended up winning the match cleanly and finishing with the same W-L record of 3-4.

It was a pleasure to work with John and team 229.

I coached with John Nuen at UTC. That was fun, and JVN did a lot of the strategy work which really made it cool.

Re: Who Coached with a John (V) Neun?

Well,

I got to go against JVN during elims on Curie.

It was an interesting match-up, because we shared pit space all weekend. He had been doggin' me and we were talkin' trash right up to the 3-2-1-countdown. We were reachin' into each others' pits stealing tools to slow down repairs. We tried to get the Hooter's girls to go visit them and cause a distraction. For a second, I even had Amanda convinced to wear a "234" shirt and lead the 'wave' to really distract him.

To make it more interesting, we were running JVN-designed transmissions (John's design, our manufacture & build). Our alliance won match 1, then lost 2 & 3. It was awesome and I still felt great even after losing.

(I am, however, still looking for that secret 'destruct' button he may have embedded in our transmissions, just in case .....)
