Donny Mills would be a great addition to the MC team this year, a very wise choice imo. He has the experience, the talent and he plays good under pressure. We definitely need to shake things up to have a chance against Europe and adding Donny might be part of it.

Oscar is playing great right now and deserves consideration. He is another one who knows how to play under fire. I like Shane, Sky, Donny and Oscar with Justin or Billy filling the last spot. That team might have the right chemistry to pull off the upset.

I was at Turning Stone this weekend and I agree with this 100%.

Wow, you blew me over, I thought they were all amateurs, some were just hustling amateurs. The only Pro I know that gets paid is Van Boening. Maybe it's different in Europe

I was under the impression that the Mosconi cup was for anyone that wants to represent their prospective country.

I gotta get out more...

I just read where Donny Mills likes to be called or referred to as Donny, NOT Donnie...

I think Donny is a better choice this year than John Schmidt was last year.

This is the problem, no matter who you put on the US team, it's considered a upset? US has had champion after champion after champion and are playing bad. They need a group that wants to be there, not for fun or experience but to WIN. Even Shane has looked disheartened and looked like he didn't want to be there. Donny would be a great pick and any other pro that truly wants to win this. I wouldn't consider it a upset at all , IMO

Could it be that the us feels short race 9b is really a bit of a crapshoot?

It would be hard to get a true sense of something, given a small data set.

That's exactly why I did a 180 and think Dennis hatch needs to be on the team. I have no doubt if he plays he ll give it everything he has and will want to win more than anything

This is an old thread that kind of got revamped. The topic, though, is definitely on point.

Donnie Mills is the new sheriff in town in recent events.

I agree.

One thing for sure, just like rules in a pool tournament, no matter who Johann selects, there will be a wave of criticism coming forth about his decisoin-making process. He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't, if you know what I mean.

If race to 9 is a crapshoot, then I guess Shane and Earls US open wins don't mean much?

The cream rises, i will agree, but isnt mosconi cum 22% (55%?) Shorter races?

You arent gonna try and contend svb has an equal chance of beating tham EU players at a race to 5 or 7, as he does to 50 or 100, are you?

John Schmidt's two Cup appearances were in 2006 and 2014.

In all 5 of Shane's US Open 9-Ball wins, the races were to 11 until the Finals, then 13. I don't know about the race length in Earl's first 2 wins, but it looks like it was 11 or 13 in his last 3 wins.

The Mosconi Cup format has changed several times. It was races to 5 the last 3 years.
