Re: 2019 Trash Player Poll

Based only on the ACRONYM stats from Macalester's site (http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/5638/stats/combined/), I would make a case for myself as a top sports player, especially in baseball and basketball. Paul Flaminio is probably the best generalist, to the point where I don't know what catego...

Re: The Big Vision: [2] The "Sales Pitch": Talking Up Quizbo

Participating in quiz bowl and taking it seriously offered me a long list of awesome opportunities in high school, in college, and after college. This is why I am frustrated that the level of high school quiz bowl in Minnesota has declined to the point where one quiz bowler on the irc said, "they j...

Re: Quiz Bowl in Minnesota

I get it, I don't think I was very clear with the intended sarcasm. Silly written words are hard to interpret sometimes. If it's any consolation, my brother taught to hate Chaska specifically because they are the worst at everything. So there. Simley we perceived as a joke because we beat them in fo...

Re: Quiz Bowl in Minnesota

I'd like to throw in here, as one of those "military motherfuckers" as Rob Carson so eloquently stated, from St. Thomas, is that Jamie Jurkovich retired from coaching two years ago now. And our current coach, "Pistol" Peter Wynia is moving to the middle school. We've always been good at least in MN,...

Re: Wisconsin 2014-2015

Oh yeah, I'm just trying to remember talking to a couple kids from Wisconsin who went to MN tournaments this past season. I'd love to help staff some tournaments at Madison when that time comes around.

Re: Wisconsin 2014-2015

I know of a few teams in qb, like Stoughton and eau Claire Regis and Hudson among a few others, but pyramidal isn't that widespread. They have two tournaments a year, Wisconsin fall, and then state competition.

Re: Wisconsin 2014-2015

I'll be at UW-Madison, and wouldn't be opposed to moderating a tournament in the vicinity, since I won't have a car. I may play a little, but it isn't number one on my priority list next year.

Re: 2014 HSNCT discussion

I'll just throw out that the X-Files tossup managed to make up for a pretty bad day for my team, all things considered. Too bad the lead in was about that God Awful last season, but beggars can't be choosers.

Re: Minnesota 2013-2014

So, what's the over/under on teams making the playoffs this year? I mean, Eden Prairie and Wayzata A might, but other than that it might not be a great showing this year.
