No question along the lines of "NAQT employs , :kenj: , a mormon. Doesn't this mean you are racist, sexist, and wear funny undergarments?"
I'm disappointed.

Congrats on Beta. I have no clue about the strange animal known as Beta Club; never got around to joining and have never seen the questions... I'm guessing they're quite different from NAQT. Yes, Chatahoochee is an awesome team this year, and they're program looks strong for next year, too. As for t...

Re: Southeast

In the southeast, you can never rule out Dorman, Brookwood, and Walton. They always have strong teams. Seems that everytime we expect a "rebuilding year" out of them, they come up stronger than before. OK, here it is: the comparison post I've been holding back. Why is it that in the southeast we ca...

What's always killed me around N.C. is having high school students serve as moderators.

All this said, the quality of a quizbowl program probably shouldn't be your main consideration in choosing a college....I mean, seriously, if you're at GT for anything other than academics, you're probably not here for the right reasons and you will very quickly hate your life.

Who did Dorman A play in the quarters and semis, just curious (our coach encouraged us after the round of 16... man that Coach Hauck can positively reinforce a disappointing loss!) :oops:
