Re: ACF Fall at Alabama (11/6/11)

LSU is likely interested. We'd have at least 2 teams, including 1 novice team.

Re: Long Island Academic Challenge (NY) 2/5/2011

FYI, this might be a bad choice of days. Many (34 so far) of Nassau's High Schools will be involved in the Regional Science Olympiad Competition on this date (Suffolk's Regional is on the 12th.) Of course, this presumes that the Quiz Bowl team are also on the SO team. Kellenberg's are, so we will n...

Re: New Team at LSU

I know that Southern is a fervent participant in the Honda Campus All Star Challenge, so they would likely be interested in attending your event if their team has been assembled. If you'd like, I can also make calls to see if we can get contacts for some of these Louisiana schools. Thanks for the h...

Re: New Team at LSU

Hey Scott, I just remembered where I know you from: weren't you my scorekeeper at the 02 HSNCT, and wasn't I one of your lifelines on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire the following year? That's right, Matt. lol. Well, I can't remember the scorekeeper part, but yes, you were definitely one of my lifeli...

It's a sample game composed of, I was told, 95% questions that I wrote. It's in QU's 4-quarter format.

To Scott: Welcome to the boards! I definitely second George's suggestion of trying to make it to ACF Fall in Alabama. There are also tournaments occasionally held in Arkansas, Texas, and parts further north/east. Thanks, Brice! I'm having trouble getting the team together because of the Alabama gam...

I say these things not to attack you, your program, your work, or even Chip Beall, but rather to express the serious reservations that I think myself and many other collegiate quizbowlers have regarding QU. Mike, I really appreciate what you said. For what it's worth, I'd like to vouch for the QU q...

Re: New Team at LSU

As a quizbowler, I believe we share a common cause, promoting an intellectual culture and dispelling ignorance. We defeat ourselves when we use the same tactics as those who dismiss us as nerdy or irrelevant. As a high school coach, I’ve seen the pain this causes. I believe we can do better than ost...

Thanks, Mike! I definitely did play for Edmond at the 2001 HSNCT. I remember all those MI teams being fantastic! I remember playing St. John's and Irmo, but not much else. Oh man, the good old days! Hope to see you around, Mike! Good luck to Minnesota this weekend against those Badgers!
