    We didn't - we got only 2 ranking points in Q9 and Q21. By later in the day we had visited all of our future alliance partners. If they could already drive in autonomous, great. If not, our programming team worked with them to be sure they could by match time.

    A lot of things fell in place for us and the machine stayed together pretty well overall. It also helps that our drive base is within an inch in all dimensions of last years and mecanum drive like last year so the kid driving was very comfortable with it. He also figured out he can get more points drawing fouls in the null zone than by manipulation cubes. He drew 7 tech fouls in one match (Q44)!

    Team 1731 is in the F1M1 and F1M2 matches as well as the semifinals.
    We are the team that got the most cubes in auto (the 1st 15 seconds)

    Gaelhawks did awesome this weekend as well.

    I dunno. I like last week's blue ribbon a lot more than this week's red one.
    On the plus side, it looks like it will be impossible to screw up the district championship enough to keep us out of Detroit. Who knows... we might end up in the same division!

    I have seen these types of compitions televised for national's, do they televise any of the others?
    If so, where would I look for them?

    I never knew they were televised. All of them are live-streamed though.
    Check out TheBlueAlliance.com. Should have stuff there.
