I hear that. For our final three competitions of the year, I was placed with the biggest guy on the team, who also happened to be the biggest guy in the school, because our coach had thought it would be nice for me to have help figuring out where the mystery material went. Needless to say, he helped out a lot more than that. I wouldn't have made it through states without him. And thanks to that, we placed third. The other two tournaments before that, I pretty much did all the work in my events, except trajectory because Sliced Bread 34 took care of that. Oh well. We still did good.It's sometimes nice to blame partners and makes yourself feel better, but the truth is it takes two people to fail an event and only one person to win it (for the most part...obviously Sounds/WIDI and long tests/time crucial lab events like Forensics follow this less). I actually tended to do better in events the less prepared my partner was for the most part. It gives you more incentive to work hard in an event if you know you don't have much of a safety net with your teammate.
