Brief update on HF's Kickoff (stats coming, SQBS is a nasty nightmare even before unusual computer errors).

1st HF, 2nd Naperville Central, 3rd Metea Valley, 4th Latin, 5th Sandburg ... but my goodness, that order does not match up with statistics. Metea and Latin dominated things statistically, but dropped matches to Naperville Central and Timothy Christian respectively, and ended up losing tiebreakers. HF, Naperville Central and Sandburg were all similar statistically (along with Timothy Christian and Harrison, IN).

Latin B, Hinsdale Central, Marist, Chicago Christian, and Fenwick were a clear step behind those 7.

Also, as an FYI about HF and Earlybird stats, my top player (Declan) wasn't there, and who has turned out to be my second best player (Jimmy) was playing B team (I thought his lit knowledge was less than Janellie, and his negs would impact A team ... I was dead wrong). I don't think our 1st place Kickoff finish is sustainable, but Earlybird and PPB/results are way lower than where we'll be long term.

So, Metea Valley should clearly be bumped up to your Tier II. Nick was amazing in certain matches, despite their one hiccup. Their loss to Naperville Central was stunning ... followed by them dominating Latin in the 3rd place match (and Latin beat HF, and HF beat NC, and Sandburg beat NC, and ...)

Timothy Christian could be Tier III. HF probably is Tier III, but we won't really be tested again until Ultima and in Conference against Sandburg in late January. Naperville Central could be Tier III.


Illinois Admin wrote:Now that I've got some more data guess I'll update my rankings (although Stevenson's and Homewood's kickoffs not having stats yet limits this):

Tier 1: These are the teams that I expect to most prominently represent Illinois at both nationals (and be in strong contention for trophy placement). These are also the teams that I expect to have the best chance of trophying at NAQT State and if any of them won IHSA or Masonic it wouldn't shock me.
1: Stevenson A
2: Auburn
3: IMSA
4: Fremd A
5: Uni A

Tier 2: These are teams that I think will have a better than not chance of making playoffs at HSNCT and a solid chance at making top 48 at PACE. Wouldn't be surprised if any of them knock off any of the teams above from time to time but none of them are as consistent of threats in the broader sphere.
6: OPRF
7: Latin
8: Mahomet (hype train away)
9: Stevenson B
10: Sandburg
11: Carbondale

Tier 3: The Nebulous Zone (teams here can probably be justifiably reordered many ways). These are teams that will do well and can take down teams ranked higher here but I would be quite surprised if they made playoffs at HSNCT and very surprised if they make top 48 at PACE. High finishes at NAQT State are definitely within reach tho.
12: Metea Valley
13: Southwestern
14: Williamsville
15: Uni B (once the A team stabilizes and drops a player they will likely rise up a tier)
16: Macomb
17: Fremd B
18: Glenwood

Tier I have no idea: I have no data on these teams and I am not familiar enough to rank them but I have been told that they will be good.
Barrington
Timothy Christian
Glenbard West (someone get them to tournaments I beg of you).

I feel like I am missing a team but I'm tired. Sorry if that team is you.

Hello everyone,

The 2018 iteration of the Illinois NAQT State Championships, hosted on February 10th at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, is currently seeking staff. We need both moderators as well as scorekeepers.

Qualified moderators, who are capable of reading at least 20 toss ups with two timed 10 minute halves, will be compensated up to $40 and fed breakfast and lunch. If necessary, travel can be arranged for them.

Scorekeepers, who must be able to keep pace with their moderator, will be compensated at a similar, but slightly reduced, rate.

If you are interesting in staffing and have questions, do not hesistate to contact me through the email I have on file.

If you know you can staff, please fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/AGXXQWBJGYK2EdV82

By filling out the form, you are confirming you will be at the tournament on February 10th. Obviously emergencies do happen, but if you fill out the form and do not attend I will send you a strongly-worded letter.

The IHSSBCA will be hosting Team Illinois Tryouts on February 11th, the Sunday after NAQT state, in Urbana, IL. If you are interested in attending these tryouts, please fill out the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/S3F3yKUQ2YdXekUe2

It is important to note that with the continuing uncertainty regarding a NASAT-like event, there is no guarantee that this team will be sent to a tournament. However, the IHSSBCA believes firmly in its educational value and importance to the Illinois quiz bowl scene.

Additional details are not yet finalized but everyone who signs up will receive an email in advance of February 11th with a precise time and location. If you have any questions you can contact me with the email I have attached to my profile.

Brief explanation for how the top 6 worked out - prelim records did not carry over, everyone started with a clean slate. Mark went 4-1, Jonathan and Reed went 3-2, Jacob and Dylan went 2-3, and Lana went 1-4. Jacob and Dylan played a full game tiebreaker (Jacob won), and Reed/Jonathan played a full game play-in to the final. Jonathan won the play-in, but lost the first game of the advantaged final.


To clarify, I played Mark with the disadvantage. I had to beat him twice to win and lost the first game.

Adding to this, we could also use some more staff for this tryout. If you will be in town live nearby and would be able to help read or scorekeep, you would be very appreciated (and thanked with some form of food). If you are able to do this, please let Tyler or me know.

Brad,

Thanks for putting together a great tournament under some adverse conditions. You guys rolled with the punches and hosted a fine event. Our A & B teams had a great time. We really appreciate all the effort that you and Tyler put into it.
