Charlie has been regularly traveling to ultimate tournaments for seven years now, but sometimes even he needs a vacation. With the Editor-in-Chief catching some sun abroad while the Southeast U.S. got snow, I, Michael Ball, am taking over Tournament Talk today after spending the weekend in Charlotte.

Charlie will still share thoughts and observations on Deep Look and in the Mailbag, so catch his opinions and reaction to this past weekend there. And again, this won’t replace our tournament reporting — indeed, this won’t include quotes, in-depth team analysis, or the deeper detail that our reporters offer up after events. Those recaps will still serve as the pillars of our season-long reporting. But if you want some quick hit opinions on and analysis of teams’ strength, who the contenders are, which players impressed, and more, we’ve got you covered here!

Queen City Tune Up gave plenty of meat to chew on from both the women’s division and men’s division, so let’s dive in.
