.... I really think DLSU deserves the thrice-to-beat/twice-to-win advantage should they sweep the eliminations.
It's a good rule, because it incentivizes perfection.
I was troubled when one of the courtside reporters relayed that Gorayeb was apparently banking on the fact that Ateneo's #2 ranking was OK for them since it was (then) as good as being #1. (Of course, I'm paraphrasing here). That attitude can only lead to subpar volleyball.
The attitude I much prefer is for teams to do their best in every game, irrespective of standing. This way we (the fans) always get the best volleyball.
