Wayne we had an issue where a team was DQ' d for late turn in. He received zeros. Some of the invitational organizations questioned that it was not a turn in and could jeopardize a small contest.
Plus we recognized that all other DQ's receive a 1 in one or more criteria. That to be consistent all DQ's should be handled in a similar manner. That is the goal.
If you do not turn in, that is not a DQ and would depending on the computer set up receive zeros or no score at all.
This was designed to make all DQ's a value of 1 and not some 1 and some 0. I know this will hurt the team competing for DAL!
