Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009
I think alot of the great teams have been mentioned but 1280 and 103 are some of the best teams not in Atlanta. Losing to 1280 (in 4 matches in the Seattle semi-finals) and 103 (Florida quarterfinals) and witnessing first-hand how these robots can tear it up makes me believe they are among the best robots in all of FIRST this year.
103 went through two regional qualifying's undefeated, was a semi-finalist twice and finalist. They could pick up balls with ease and dump with great accuracy.
1280 was a monster in that it could hold so many balls and score all of them so quickly. The elevator design was purely genious.
