Re: Curie 2010!

We're happy just to get a chance to play again after our first week regional. Man it is a long slog from week 1 to Championships. We hope with this deep field we'll finally get to see if our ball looper works as well as it did in practice. We are quite happy with our kicker and possessor since it helped us win the Bayou but we want to see our true concept in action.

Good luck to everyone in Curie. And seeing as we're unknown we'll be happy to finally get to play Saturday afternoon. I've mentored 5 years and been to Atlanta twice already and this my third, I just want to dance Saturday afternoon. :-)

I'll believe it. I think that although those two teams are favored, something along those lines will happen. 469/1114 either won't be ranked 1st, and someone else will end up picking one of them, or some other seed might just beat them. Although, their stats don't lie. 1114 is undefeated this year, and both 469 and 1114 have won every event they've attented. If these two do not end up being on the same alliance, I'll be surprised, and if they do, I look forward to some TERRIFIC matches.

However, I wish the best to all teams attending Curie 2010, and lets show them this is the field to be at!

Re: Curie 2010!

Heres 573 checking in: Winners of the Ann Arbor District (with our friends 2337), 4th Alliance Capitan at MSC, and official 469 autonomous stopper.

I'm so pumped. Curie is going to be such a great division this year! There are plenty of really good teams! Its going to be interesting!

Did you bet Double or Nothing? Or rather Double Suspension or Nothing?

If I knew you would have 2 hangers with you in some of your matches, the bet would be on! But I'm going to wait until the match schedules come out....if there's a chance I'm going with YOU!

Here's a gutsy strategy move: During the qualification rounds teams agree to go 5 on 1 against 1114 and 469 so that neither is the number 1 seed. If either is the number 1 seed, common sense indicates that they'll pick each other and then you have an uphill battle from there.

During the quals... Say 1114 (or 469) is red, then the two red robots could park in front of their own goal while the 3 blue robots play normally. Yes, the red robots would be sacrificing themselves for the match, but they would help keep 469 and 1114 away from the number 1 seed. Lose the battle, win the war.

Do I like the idea? No. Could it help break up a hugely powerful alliance? Yes. Will it work? Yet to be determined...

I think Curie can beat them or force 3 elimination matches with good "New England" defense and strong offense! Oh, strategy, strategy, strategy! Can't go wrong figuring out powerful match strategies. I don't think turning alliance members against the number 1 and 2 teams is a good idea.

And if 469 and 1114 get together, 30+ points is what you are capable of!

And that's where we come in.

In all seriousness, I am a bit intimidated at the fact of 469 and 1114 being on our field, but 1676 is going to do the best they can to succeed on Curie; watch out, there's a new powerhouse on the block this year. I cannot wait to see you all there on the field, good luck to all teams!

Re: Curie 2010!

Looks like a good group we have here. I've worked with many of these teams at my regionals this year, and look forward to meeting new ones on the field.

I'll be around the field, those of you on a drive team should be able to find me.
