Re: Which states are known for allowing teams to play lower then they belong.
I'm sure everybody could name bunch from almost every state/region. I dont know anymore but Utah was blatantly ridiculous at the lower levels from around 2005-15. I remember watching a E team hit 9 oppo DBO's in 1 game down at Disney in 95 degree heat. Then somewhere around 2012(?) I watched 6 B players that I personally knew playing in a Worlds in Sterling Heights. It was either a D or E, I forget which. I was shooting the sh*t with a few of them & they were openly proud that they got by doing it. They were good dudes but it seemed like a strange thing to be proud of to me. I think its gotten a little better overall but I don't see it ever really being fixed. I've been around the game for 40 yrs (30 playing) and its amazing to me how much the players have changed from wanting to play/be the best to being proud of winning a ring at the lowest levels.
