Re: Bad Negs Again

Not a neg, but still kind of painful when it happened. At practice, one of our players answered Sudan, and got power on it. Then he said: "I knew it was Sudan because I knew it had to be in the Middle East." Mind you, his definition of Middle East is the normal definition, he just thought that Sudan...

Re: Thumb Strength?

I don't think that thumb strength is very relevant to quiz bowl. I'm a pianist, but that hasn't really helped me except with music questions. Knowledge is what really matters.

Re: Michigan 07-08

This is Mr. Ugly chiming in. At GPN, quiz bowl isn't taken very seriously, except for a few seniors, me, the sophomore, and the freshman. The focus is primarily on having a fun time and making sure that everyone gets to play. Money is usually limited, and we are always forced to not attend certain t...

Re: national tournament comparison

I've heard that NAQT never has repeats of the same information from previous nationals. For example, if the Temple of Artemis comes up in a question from previous years, it won't show up in the current year nationals. Is that true? I'm 99% sure that this is not the case, but I can't produce a speci...
