In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
1she got a bye into the second round — pasó automáticamente a la segunda vuelta
- If the league is going to add one team per conference, it might as well add two teams per conference and eliminate first-round byes altogether.
- Where's the justice in eliminating more non-league teams in the qualifying rounds than is necessary, only for league clubs to be given byes in the first round proper of the competition?
- Some argue it would take away the huge advantage the top four seeds have from byes and home-field advantage.
- All four teams have fresh legs, thanks to first-round byes followed by the pleasure of playing divisional playoff games at home.
- All 16 seeded players received byes into the second round.
- If the league had 16 playoff teams, byes would be eliminated, and that is very appealing to a cross-section of owners who believe byes give teams unfair advantages.
- If the Scots do not win the regular season championship, finishing second is critical, as the top two seeds receive first round byes and semi-final home games.
- But nothing says that only one team must skip the first round - you could also give 3 byes in the first round, which will leave you with 13 teams in the second round, or 5 byes or any other odd number.
- Nevertheless, each rebounded to win their division and secure first-round byes.
- In the absence of leading seeds with first-round byes, lesser contenders took center stage on opening day.
- In my mind, the road team with the best chance to win is Green Bay, but historically, the week of rest has been a major advantage for teams with byes.
- The increase to 16 means the end of first-round byes.
- Taking the money into account - as well as the prospect of eliminating byes altogether - a proposal to eventually put 16 teams into the playoffs is probably on the horizon.
- If a knock-out solution takes effect, nine teams would get byes through to the second round, where they would meet the winners of seven drawn ties to create a last 16.
- With that, college hockey was finally rid of its 12-team format, which awarded byes to the top four teams and a tremendous advantage.
- Again, there would be a two-day playoff, but without byes.
- The top six teams in the field were given byes into the quarter-finals while the bottom four teams must play seeding matches to move on.
- As usual, the four teams who had byes played in the conference title games last year.
- And as usual, the main ‘race’ threw up a few appetisers, although the holders were one of the four first round byes.
- The addition of two wild cards in each league would give the top two finishers first-round byes but make the tournament unwieldy.
