Ute news: Battle 4 Atlantis moved to South Dakota

Battle for Rapid City?

Many reports that the Battle 4 Atlantis will be played in the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. Dates are TBA. The field is Duke, Ohio State, Memphis, West Virginia, Creighton, Texas A&M, Wichita State, and Utah.

The primary building sponsor is Sanford Health, who have done well with the testing for the PGA tour.

Can’t play in the Bahamas due to travel restrictions. If I were a player, I’d be a bit bummed about going to South Dakota in stead of the Bahamas.

At least the ‘crowds’ might be larger. I’ve seen a few Atlantis games over the years, and there is never anyone there.

They may not let much if any crowd in to watch. All things considered, I’d rather be in the Bahamas.

From Jon Rothstein on Twitter:

The Battle 4 Atlantis has sent out a press release saying that its 2020 event has been cancelled.

Plans continue to play the event at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls and not in the Bahamas.

I dont know if we have been in a field this competitive in a long time. Any game we win there will be huge and the experience will be great for this still fairly young team.

It’s cute that you think we’ll win any of those games. I like the guys on our roster but our HC is useless. Our team will be very young once again, though we should see improvement over last year.

I’m most excited to see he Carlson and Jones mature and progress.

We did beat Kentucky last season.

It sounds like the teams minus Duke are still going to try and do something in south dakota. I hope they can, or we can at least get a couple of them on the schedule.
