Re: Matt Bruce (cw: sexual assault, pedophilia)

After reading everything, I'm so disgusted. I'm disgusted that someone who appears so dedicated and passionate towards quiz bowl on the exterior is the last thing I want my kids to see on the interior. Matt Bruce moderated for the 3rd/4th place round that my kids played in at MSNCT 2018; his mom eve...

Re: HIGS Invitational

I'd like to apologize for the typo, I accidentally wrote "the last hour and a half" when meaning to say "the last year and a half"; we've spent a good amount of time trying to perfect this set.

Re: HIGS Invitational

Hey neat. Hope your writing is going well, and I look forward to seeing the set once it's out. I understand why you think this, but it doesn't play out how you'd expect. SCOP Novice 6 had 88% conversion on math tossups (three points above the target conversion and topping most conversion rates outs...
