one humble opinion, after seeing much of the tournament...

Jeff Eastham [Davis]- great deep D, solid throws pushed them to the semis,
and got them up on Stanford early.

Aaron Richards [Oregon State]- Only one not to make semis, Aaron played
with several injuries and dominates everywhere. Hustles like a rookie D
guy and thinks like a Captain

Sam and Jeremy [Santa Cruz]- the most difficult tandem to stop west of
Carleton's Sam and Nord. Both go deep well and break a lot of marks, as
well as leading their D teams. Sam is as big and aggressive as they get,
and Jeremy feeds him, and does damage downfield as well.

Mike Whitaker [Stanford]- Hard to pick out a best player on this deep
team, but he stands out as a mark specialist and long thrower. Great game
in the finals, especially in SU's 5-0 run to tie it. Could have also
considered Machine and the D-team guy with the mullet.

Joe Kleffner [Oregon]- Took over the semi against SC, big grabs in the end
zone and shifty, menacing D. Doesn't throw deep to his short guys enough,
but brought his A game this weekend to earn a trip to Boston.

Doug Mckenzie [Oregon]- Finally, everyone knows "the blond kid with
springs'" name. Doug is a highlight film, and a northwest fan favorite.
Great D. Hurts himself to get the disc. Scored too many goals this weekend
to not get noticed- and has never spiked a disc. NW Regional Final MVP.

I agree whole-heartedly.  Jeff is my vote for Callahan.  However, it seems
that most overlook his silent evil twin Kevin (last name?).  An equally
talented deep and mid, Kevin seemed to single-handedly win that first half
against Stanford.  If he, Jeff, and Spencer (short/sideburns) can find a
supporting cast, Davis will be unstoppable next year.

I hate gaurding Aaron.  The kid can run all day and he'll do it with a
smile on his face.  You look across the field and see some Oregon State
hippie in dread-locks and grossly underestimate Oregons best receiver.
Probably the nicest guy I know (who plays ultimate)....right after Albert
Wu.

I've been playing against these ***s for 7 years.  I can remember
having to deal with them in high school and was so relieved when I came to
UW so that I'd be rid of them for a couple of years.  Jeremy has some of
the best throws in the college game and Sam, despite his height, can work
just about anyone.  However, he did have some trouble against our 200 lb.,
40-year-old coach down at Davis.  A couple of years and he'll be smart
enough to do whatever he wants to whomever he wants.  Nice playing guys.

You know, if you were to tell me the name of one of the Stanford guys, and
I were to sit and talk with him for an hour, and then you were to put him
back in a line of him and his teammates, I'd never be able to pick him
out.  Jasper [Cal] said it best.  "Yah, they really are a faceless army."
Kudos on a monstrous comeback against Davis.  My only gripe was not being
given enough space on the line to be a good linesman.  You'd think that
these prep school kids would be able handle a simple request, huh?

Sorry Ben, I've no idea who these two are.  I did't get to see much of
your game though.  I spent the majority of the finals at the grocery store
buying Observer beer.  chuckle.

Other notables:

Robert (Ro-bear) [UBC] -  a solid player in every respect.  made some
phenomenal catches agaist us in out first game of the day and was a
constant worry going out and comin' back.  He's got that quintescential
Canadian accent too.  You gotta give him props for that.

Jasper [Cal] - Everyone is talking about Dan (the other one) for Callahan.
I think Jasper might be the most underestimated player out there.  In the
Davis game he played all but about 4 points and was running the whole
time.  With Berkeley's deep throws, I thought they would have used him
more often but he was looked off.  He's also there most versatile player,
capable of playing any position, all game, in any conditions.  I just wish
he'd gone to grad school at UW instead of venturing 800 miles south.

Ben Wiggins [Oregon] - I'm sorry Ben, but you're my favorite.  I gotta
give you props.  Good luck in Boston!

Still recovering from this weekend.

PS-thanks to Stanford for spending the better part of 30 minutes tearing
up the parking lot.  That'll really help out our relationship with
Northwest fields.  If you're that frustrated, go rip the shit out of your
own state.

He played all but one point, and I'm pretty sure missing the one pissed
him off.  Yes, he's a versatile player, and Cal ultimate will miss him.
He can run all day, handle, go deep, or get the disc in against just
about anyone.  You don't notice his great defense a lot of the time
because his man simply doesn't get thrown to.  If Jasper could just jump
higher, he'd be a superstar.  As for Dan, you'll want to be watching
when he and Oregon's Doug McKenzie match up for the next two years.  All
kinds of cool stuff could happen.  And your B team can keep spreading
the rumor that he can't throw; that suits us fine.

You missed one.  Jeff, with a freshly shaven head, was playing
incredibly all weekend.  With Sam putting a lot of his attention into
stopping our best player, Jeff killed us.

You also missed a couple of your own guys.  Josh had many big plays when
I was watching (I can't believe he got the Callahan goal after failing
to bid for it the first time around), and leads the league in
post-big-play strutting.  And Ryan not only provided solid handling and
tallness, but hustled like mad--as you yourself called the play-by-play
from the sideline, he got one D on a floaty huck when he'd been covering
a handler--and the other two guys going up for it were both tall.

I agree.  And congratulations to you guys--I meant to say so, but you
were busy cramping on the warmdown lap.  Good timing.

        My team:

Whit (Stanford)--Doesn't look like a superstar, but somehow he's involved
in every big play, on O or D.

Jeff and Sam (Santa Cruz)--When we played them, we put our best defender
on Sam, and then Jeff just killed us. They're both nearly unstoppable.

Jeff (Davis)--He had a tough game against us on defense (yeah Jude), but
got a huge poach D in the first half (thanks to yours truly) and was
smooth on offense. It's hard to leave Kevin off the list, and I suspect
that when (if?) Allan comes back to 100%, you'll have to watch out for him
too.

Josh, Joe, Doug (Oregon)--I'm a believer after watching them in the semis
and finals. On a team packed with superstars, these are the most exciting.
Again, several other Oregon guys could be on this list.

        Second team: Wiggins (Oregon), Dan (Berkeley), Cooper (Humboldt),
whatever that guy's name is from OSU, Kevin (Davis), Jeremy (UCSC), that
Asian handler #8 (UBC).

        Pretty solid squads, there.

        --Pat.

That would be Adrian (Beebs) Liem, our Callahan nominee. He's the heart and
soul of our team, and as someone else mentioned here, the chilliest handler
in the Northwest.

just as long as the rumors about our b-team remain rumors....  :)

loki.

PS-the asian guy on UBC is Adrian Liem (sp?), aka "Beebs."  And he's on
the ballot of Callahan.  Deservedly I might add.
