Out of idle curiosity, is there any reason why you're not playing standard NAQT CUT rules, and doing this modified version instead? Players who've put up significant PPG at ICT probably don't need teammates for an IS set.

Special thanks to our moderators, including Evan from Brandeis and several MIT people, who helped things move along quite smoothly. We couldn't have done it without you.

Thanks,
