    What Will Our 8-Man Competitors Do With The 20k?

    Oct 19, 2020

    There is $20k on the line on Halloween night for Flo’s first eight-man tournament. That may not be Dake/Chamizo money, but with the exceptions of a few dormant tournaments in Azerbaijan this is one of the most lucrative purses for a tournament that I can think of. Eight men will come to Austin on Halloween and one will walk away $20,000 richer. So what will they do with the money? I was curious, so I asked them.

    2020 Four-time Qualifiers, Not Yet All-Americans

    Accounting for all the seniors who qualified for their fourth NCAA Championship but have not yet earned All-American honors is a far more disheartening task in 2020 than in years past, for obvious reasons. Unlike when we completed the tallying in 2018 (link) and 2019 (link), those seniors at the very least had the opportunity to march in the parade of All-Americans. This year, that opportunity was dashed by the coronavirus.

    Can The UNI Panther Train Roll To An NCAA Team Trophy?

    Feb 24, 2020

    UNI finished its dual meet season in style by beating Wisconsin 20-18 in a wild dual in Madison last Thursday. The Panthers have been ranked inside the top four this year, but injuries seem to have limited their point-scoring potential. Do they have the firepower to bring home a trophy from Minneapolis?
