One of the few sports that promotes "team" championship and arranges the scoring so there can be ties (like three teams finishing first with the same SCORE!!!) and then uses the finish in the 1st eight to designate the champion, runner up and so forth. Why not save everyone time and money, fly in the top six crews and run one race. Why waste time with the other races? Never could figure that one out. Pissed me off when UVa tied Brown back in the day and was runner up because the Brown 1st eight finished ahead of UVa. I got a great idea, just have a poll like a popularity contest, whoever finishes first in the poll can be named the national champion, like they did for football for 50 plus years.
