Re: Illinois '12-'13

So basically there are two tournaments running simultaneously. There is a varsity novice and a f/s. Now if you are starting at the Varsity level, you shouldn't be complaining about not getting to beat up f/s teams on an A-set, man. There's a reason that varsity starters aren't allowed at either level.
