Re: Kentucky 08-09

Dunbar loses most of it's varsity-Victor, Tian, Amit, Sagar and myself (Papa)
In addition, Dean has retired as well.

Pavitra and all the JV starters will be on Varsity next year.

Tomorrow's tournament is CANCELLED. Your coach should have received an email. Please do not come. It will almost certainly be gross outside.

Re: Kentucky '07-'08

It's something like 16 teams, really really small, I know.
Right now some of the teams I remembered seeing are:
Ezell Harding
Johnson Co.
MadNoHo
Daviess
Ballard (I noted them because of their surprising finish at Hart Co.)

Re: Kentucky '07-'08

A couple years ago at NAQT states, we (the B team then) played Pikeville first thing in the morning. We played poorly and it went down to the last question with them up ten and they buzzed in early with Degas. The moderator, however, ruled it incorrect for whatever reason.

I don't think that's a fair label. In a game like QR, where momentum carries so much weight, if a team reels of 15 in a row, their opponents just drop their heads and give up.

This tournament was ten ten point quickie tossups. 2minute 15 question worksheet. 10 Tossups with 20 point bounceback 2 question bonuses. Ooh, lots of numbers. So when you're down 40 with one question left, you've lost. But down 30, you can tie. Rather like Vandy.
