    To everyone posting on this, do us all a favor and Stop. If you are adults you would be mature and stop acting like Children. For both teams, FSU read the rules SHSU was being fair and they DID post the results from Friday and Saturdays match plays against FSU, so stop making things up and calling them liars. They only wanted what was fair for the whole field because the rules say they are not supposed to count. So obviously the last few years no one stood up and pointed out the truth, or nobody was educated enough on the situation. To SHSU, yes it looks like from FSU's side that you just did not want to compete, but we know you were just following the rules. And only a few are complaining because the educated ones know that you did the right thing. And to "real winner" you cannot say that FSU is a better team, and no one can say that SHSU is either. But I do know SHSU was respectful and doing what they are supposed to & you are the only one being rude. So, do us a favor & DROP IT

    If as you say, SHSU posted their scores against FSU in the match play event on Sunday then they are worse than I thought. They not only are whiners but liars as well because as I said before FSU never bowled SHSU in a head to head match because SHSU refused to bowl them. FAMU never had a problem counting all scores until this year, this year is different than 2009 and 2010 because SHSU could bear to lose to a better team!!! I think I made my point! I think I am moving to FL where integrity counts for something!!

    One has to ask... would SHSU travel across the country to compete in matches that meant absolutely nothing? The practical and simple answer is... no. The article here and on their website doesn't mention a single FSU score or place at all. Obviously FAMU/FSU knew the format of the event, that FSU was a pace team. It's solely at the discretion of an NCAA school, whether to post results against non NCAA schools. SHSU posted their match results vs. FSU. A class move I think! No whining from them... just you! If FSU feins ignorance... have them take it up with FAMU, the host.

    FAMU #1 Fan is exactly right. Its how you finish head to head. However if the other team is afraid to bowl head to head then what really matters is who the best time is and that is clearly FSU. Anyone who has ever bowled before knows 500 pins is a beat down and and if you win every game scratch then the bonus pins are worthless. I have watched NCAA teams and Intercollegiate teams for years and the skill level is not even close, Intercollegiate Teams dominate in every category including sportsmanship! I do not even know if the NCAA knows the meaning of sportsmanship, Footballs a good example, Let a small school play for a national championship, if the NCAA even had the guts!!!!! But they are afraid a small school might just prove they are as good if not better than the bigger ones!!!!

    The only thing that leading in total pins will get you in the NCAA, is lane choice in the next match. Under NAIA handicap rules, a team gets an extra 30 pins a game for a win. I guess this helps no.23 ranked teams place higher in tournaments than they normally would. That's if they win at all. If the NFL followed NAIA thinking... it would have been Phil vs. IND in the Super Bowl based upon most yards per game, not Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh 2011. In the NCAA, it's not how you start... it's how you finish - head to head.

    You can all say what you will but FSU was never told there scores were for pace only until after they qualified 1st in the Friday and Saturday matches. As a matter of fact they won this tournament in 2009 and 2010, check out the newspapers if you don't believe me or google it. Only until SHSU showed up to the tournament and WHINED LIKE PETTY LOSERS did there scores not count. And you might want to check out the scores from the tournament, FSU did not bowl SHSU on Sunday because the BearKats were too demoralized and worried about their NCAA ranking to even want to risk being beat in match play by a better team, by the way FSU is a DIV I team and I am from Texas not Florida, FSU has nothing to do with my comments I just like a fair game and I am ashamed of SHSU for showing such poor sportsmanship.

    FSU can silence themselves and do the NCAA teams a favor by not bowling the NCAA events anymore. Oh, and last time I checked, pace scores have never counted in any tournament or league, so again... silence yourselves please. Or at least don't talk until you educate yourselves on the NCAA Div. I Collegiate Bowling world. Please and thank you =)
