    Which one is Tylka?

      Clay is #6

    About halfway through this so far and “Yeti” dude looks quite impressive (but definitely not mistake free) on O. He doesn’t look like he’s trying as hard as he could on D- doesn’t get beat to spot #1 he’s protecting but willing to give up pretty much everything else. I’d love to see him in a system where he doesn’t feel he has to save his legs on D and can go out and lock people down.

      I’m glad to hear someone else think this way. He looked like the best player on the field, even in the loss.

    Just watched the game for a third time and only watched Yeti and Draco. Dranko played more points (I think every point) that Jr Worlds Junior by a few, had less mistakes by a few, but played just as hard on D as he did on O. Macklemore definitely has the better throws, but he tends to get flashy with them which leads to bad decisions on his part. I wouldn’t say he looked like the best player on the field in this game unless you are only talking about the pure aesthetics of his play and not talking about being efficient with the disc. If your are basing your statement on schlong size then you may be right considering the amount of time you spend sucking Callahan Jr off on here.

    This post is not a dis on Yeti, just messing with McNeil subjective ass.

      I’m partial to throwers. Draco does the little things right (dump-swing, good around backhands, fundamental throws). He also turfed two throws in the finals, got bailed out on a couple bad throws by teammate-lay-out grabs, and threw a couple of swilly hucks/hammers AKA bad decisions (like some of Yeti’s throws, as you pointed out).

      There’s no question who the more talented thrower is (Yeti jumps off the page), and I think Yeti and Draco are close enough in other areas save, perhaps, man-to-man defense (Draco, obviously better; Yeti’s a poacher/opportunist) and conditioning (again, Draco), that Yeti deserves POTY as much as Draco. IMO.

      Just for the record, I’m not killing Austin here. He’s a great player and I have a lot of respect for his game. I think his style of play translates better to the club level, FWIW.

      And just for the sake of accuracy, I’ve sucked off plenty of teams/players this season, not just Jr. Worlds Jr. The list:

      Tulane’s Great 8
      Auburn/TJ
      Caroline Marsh
      UAB’s Jerseys
      Tom Echols
      Auburn women’s jerseys
      Our (in)ability to live-stream
      Gary Lee POTY

      I even gave Vanderbilt a handy by saying they don’t suck as much as I thought they would. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

    From out of region POV first thing you hear about GC conference is this Yeti guy. Now that I see him on tape I can safely say I’m wholly unimpressed. He has great athleticism and throws but his decision making is some of the worst I’ve seen in the game. If he could maybe get it together and run the offense efficiently this team has a lot of stuff going for them. But it seems every time they’re flowing well, this kid gets the disc and tries to do far too much. What’s more, it seems from his body language that the burden of carrying this team has fallen on his shoulders, but I think the pieces around him are quite solid. If he could throw flat hucks to space instead of blades into covered receivers (or out the back of the end zone) he might have better results.

      What’s the point of this post? If you’re going to just come by and be a dick, at least be a dick with balls and post with your name. You watched a single video and decided you understand the kids entire game? Go watch the pool play game v Bama, the Tulane semi, or any other of the numerous videos LSU posted before running your mouth. I understand why this kid gets piled on, much of it being self-inflicted, but this is getting ridiculous

      • Luca on April 25, 2014

        Yeti had quite a few bad throws (bad decision making?!?) In the final but in have to agree…in pool play against bama and semis against tulane he totally dominated.

      • Thatguy on April 25, 2014

        Only commenting on what I saw here which was an overall poor performance. If people don’t think they should be criticized for their play then they shouldn’t play sports because fact is criticism and analysis is a HUGE portion of it. I was simply offering my analysis, like I said the only thing you hear about from the GC is Yeti. Hearing about a sophomore so frequently is mostly unheard of save the Dylan Freechilds of the world. I even said there’s no doubt he’s talented, but I would still postulate if he didn’t try to do so much they’d find more success. Someone said Draco looked impressive because he was playing in a system. Well it looked like the rest of LSU was in a system, I guess I just don’t see why he can’t play in it as well. And sure, maybe he dominated the Alabama pool play game, but Alabama made the necessary adjustments and won when it counted most. Also if these websites didn’t want us posting anonymously they would deactivate anonymous posting. Fact of the matter is when they do that these sites go dead and the site runners need the clicks out anonymous controversy creates.

    Let’s talk about it from a team perspective, not only this year’s but all the ones both Draco and Yeti have played for. Starting with Yeti, his playing style is developed from playing with people that are so athletic and good at Ultimate, Shanon and Pickle, THE ENTIRE JUNIOR NATTIS TEAM, that he could just throw up any throw and they would pull it down, so it was put in his head that he could do that and get away with it. So, now he is having to adjust a little not having all that talent, not saying that the LSU guys aren’t talented, cause we all know they are. Its just a different game for him, so it may look like he is doing too much. Sorry, but anyone who actually knows sports knows it takes a long time to break bad habits, more than a year at the earliest. Now let’s look at Draco, he has been in a solid, all around team system, where you don’t have to make the home run throws. He has been in that for every year he has played ultimate (to my knowledge). He knows the system and how it is supposed to work and he crafted his ultimate to what the system needed aka experience in the same system over time.

    So, what I’m saying here is Yeti hasn’t been in a good team system, whereas Draco has. Yes Draco, deserved POTY this year, but put Yeti in a solid system for a few years, like Draco has been in and there will be no comparison at all.

    Main point-proper experience is essential

    But hey, I could be wrong, any other opinions on that?
