Default What are your opinions guys?

Team wins the C/D states in Idaho and are registered E. They have the option of taking the C or D bid. They decline and take an at large bid to the E worlds.

Am I out of line thinking this is sandbagging? I think that if you win the states at any level you can compete and shouldnt drop down. I could understand not going C but to drop down is a shame.

I might agree if it was in any other state but Idaho.

Sounds fishy. But, I guess I would ask the circumstances. How many legit teams were in each level? Could have small programs out there and put in C/D league teams to get the rating.

IF not then I agree it's sandbaggin at it's finest.

There was a D/E states the same weekend. Should it matter though? They played by C rules and won. CAn you imagine if an E team here won a C tourney didnt take the bid and went to the E worlds?

PS- I am not afraid of them either. Doesnt make much difference who we play they arent hitting the ball much harder then those guys on One Source hit last weekend!
