Improving the Seeding Process
Phil, That's what I am having a problem with. The team winning the repechage in the USBF Bermuda Bowl trials is named USA2, and not USA1, regardless of their original seed. There has to be an award for upsetting another team (and there is in the knockout phase), but ...
