Fuck it. One division.

Word on the street - Gong will be sending a team, but it will be complete newbies most of whom will be unspirited as all hell (my sis knows them all and chose not to play for this reason).

If I get the time I'll try and give them a couple of training sessions so that when we all play them at AUG it may be slightly less painful...

Wow. That escalated quickly.

I'm going to have to say that all of that party smack talk was a bit pointless - blowing out someone elses candle doesn't make yours shine any brighter. At least that's what my mum would say.

Since when did the party become all about competition? The whole point of it is that we have enough competition during the day, let's not have it carry over into the night...

And Tiger, I still don't understand the whole obnoxious label? I'm seeing all the unis talk themselves up a bit.

Sydney Uni trains hard, plays hard and parties hard. Anyone who wants to jump on board and enjoy AUGs as much as we plan to, then by all means join us.

I have a friend at 'Gong, and they are organising a team. In fact my sis might be playing on it. Tiger - you're in.

Look out for a new suufa dark strip at uni games, unveiled for the first time. It's quite simplisitic...rather a different approach from the UQ lovers.

Mantra Sun City

USYD have booked out the whole thing apparently, looks nice...

Re: Increased team size, on the EUG post-tournament survey, I tried to get everyone there to circle the box about team size and request an increase to 18 - however after talking with the Sydney Uni AUS liason he said that the rules were set in concrete for 2009 - is this true? If so hopefully it will change in the future, but as for '09, we are making our selections within about a fortnight, including final details to SUSF. Any idea what the timeline is for this?

Well done bringing this to them, just shows that no one at AUS really has any idea how Ultimate is played...
7  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: June 14, 2009, 07:12:58 AM
Oh come on Brett. Why must you SUUFA kids keep lying to yourselves? We all know come Uni Games you spend more time in ice-baths than on the dancefloor...

Doing icebaths in the arvo after the game helps us to not feel sore after nights of partying. Plus it's an amazing team bonding experience! SUUFA loves the parties, in fact i've got some great footage of a usyd vs uts boat - no real need to post the result i'm sure everyone can guess Wink

UTS is getting a bit too overhyped I think Tongue 
How does it feel? Wink

EUGs is mainly just going to be flat out FUN. Actually, primarily it's going to be friggin cold, but fun comes in a close second. USYD has a mix of experience, same with UTS, NEWC... which are my personal pick for the top 3 but in reality, anyone can win it. I'm looking forward to there being no real 'favourites' and being able to play some quality, close matches and hitting the parties hard with our eastern buddies. And the best part is, everyone gets to smash Cumbo!

And let's just remember, it's only EUGs...

Tin Tin gets lost in the entire Usyd line. Whilst he is an "elite" player, He can destroy your chances just as easily as improve them.

Then you have the really consistent performers like mort and izzy (and most of Usyd infact) that aren't "elite" players per se, but because they always play at that same level kinda serve to swallow Tin Tin and his performance up. Regardless of whether it is good or bad.

@Henry, plus there is the newcastle iv coming up later next month...

Woah, Dan take a step back. That's a tad rich. Pete is an asset every time we're on the field.

And I'm not sure who wouldn't count J-Bell as an elite player, she is (well, was) probably one the best if not the best female uni player last year.

As for commentary, I don't really think there would be much demand for it. Would be cool to get a podcast though - just thinking how many people are free to listen to a 90 minute game at 1pm on a friday...

PS. I'm pumped for EUGs - if you haven't booked accommodation yet, DO IT NOW! There is pretty much nothing left.

USYD will put the team on afda after we get the actual registration done with AUS - had trouble with some players pulling out and alot of our AUGs team unable to play. Result will be a less experienced team but with far more potential for improvement which is great for us.

Should be a fun tournament.
11  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: May 20, 2009, 09:07:57 AM
I do remember being on the field and something in the form of "why don't you make a thread about it?" brought a small smirk to my apparently unfocused head.
12  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: May 20, 2009, 07:13:52 AM
Rachel Grindlay will be back, which I think is awesome, hopefully she'll take on a leadership role and guide UTS to victory.

And Maple, please stop tooting USYDs horn - I swear most of the heckling at last years final derived from expectations after posts in this damn forum...

Our EUGs team has been announced, and it contains alot of rookies, so Bathurst is anyones game which will be fun. Good to hear UNSW are on the 'road' again after last year, especially led by Evan 'Fire Up Boys' Darmainin (sp?) who, let's face it, is an inspiration to us all...
13  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: May 13, 2009, 09:02:55 AM
Only ONE team to AUGs, confirmed.

EUGs used to be the shit - EUGs 06 in Coffs was insane, plus some incredible tough ultimate - came down to universe point betwen usyd and gong for who would make it to AUGs! Still in my top 3 fav games/tournaments of all time. When they didn't make it qualifying it changed everything. If the news is true, then I wish I was able to play next year Sad

As for money, if you dedicate yourself - you can make it to AUGs. Fundraising, uni assisstance (SUUFA subsidises our players) helps, but in the end you need to dedicate yourself. Value for money is pretty damn good. $70 for melb hat: 2 days, 1 party, lunches, shirt. $140 AUGs: 5 days play, 5 parties, experience of a lifetime

not too shabby in my books...
14  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Ultimate Stampede III on: May 09, 2009, 07:49:49 PM
whatever it is...im in.

i hope there will also be the 3rd annual bathurst inter-uni strawpedo challenge.... or am i giving away too much?
i'll bring some straws just in case...
15  Regional / Australasia / Re: The Road to Gold Coast: 2009 uni ultimate on: May 06, 2009, 09:53:31 AM
USYD are given shorts for AUGs, and we are sticking with gregros for our shirts - keep an eye out for our new dark strip at AUGs! Actually it's pretty much the inverse of last years white strip, but cool nonetheless.

Never heard of Zone before, will have to check them out...
