in fact, until now I didn't even know Texas did this
Texas only recently started this. I think last year was the first time they implemented this policy.

I like it, it makes ducking the heavyweights less prevalent, and actually penalizes the heavyweights slightly. I'd love to know how we stack up against beckendorf on my builds at the regional level so I can go improve on them before state. But I'm not going to those regionals if that means one less spot is advancing.

Not sure specifically about Texas but at MIT top teams were getting upwards of 3 minutes raw time with chinooks, so around 8 minutes after bonuses. Clements was the only Texas school who medaled at MIT, so their times should be around 2:40-3:15 coming into state.

Does anyone know what the raw scores were like for We've got your number at any of the regionals? Trying to judge how they are doing. I know it can vary a ton based on the numbers chosen (last years 4,7,7,7 was brutal at state)

I got 1st place at my regionals and I scored 187 on mine (I'm div C tho). But yeah state last year was terrible. I think I got around 154 and still got 2nd (i hate you clements)

My normal scores range from 180-195, extremely hard sets anywhere between 150-170 (which is a pretty big range, but)

EDIT: Actually, since you're div B and can't use certain stuff, this post is probably pretty useless.

Well it gave me something to measure against so that’s better than where I was before. They did it twice and scored 157 and 160 with harder than average numbers. So your scores make me feel pretty good.

Does anyone have an estimated date of when the team numbers will be released for state?
