Re: Alabama 2019-2020 Discussion Thread

ASCA regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Varsity State Championship. We debated what to do in this situation, and tried to postpone as long as possible, but the board no longer feels it is reasonable to proceed this year. We will be sending notifications to all teams today. Obviously, ...

Re: Alabama 2019-2020 Discussion Thread

Congrats to everyone, especially to Liberty for winning for the second year in a row in quite a tough tournament! Here are my thoughts on last week's tournament: TEAMS 1) Liberty. They swept the tournament, 9-0, and overall did very well, considering their entire MSNCT 4th place A team from last yea...

Re: The State of Good Quizbowl, State-by-State, 2017 Edition

Yes, I am planning a new data-intensive version of these rankings that I hope will be illustrative of the considerable challenges remaining in terms of outreach yet will also recognize those states that have made significant improvements recently in various areas (if possible, I'm looking to add ru...

Re: Studying Current Events

I usually look at CNN, WaPo, NY Times, WSJ, and BBC once or twice a day and read a few stories. Would this be good for a national level?

Re: Alabama 2019-2020 Discussion Thread

Watch Out Baker is finally going competitive this year; we’re entering more tournaments. We missed HIT, but ASCA State will be an upset. Saraland is also gearing up and finally signing up for ASCA (at least planning on it), and some other stuff too. Won't promise anything spectacular, though. We ha...

Re: Alabama 2019-2020 Discussion Thread

Could we get some predictions on Varsity, JV, and Middle School teams for the circuit this year? This year seems to be VERY competitive, with many powerful teams retaining powerful members. Here are my rankings: 1) Hoover. (I'm not biased). Hoover has a very strong team this year, and is a force to ...

I know West Point Kickoff using SM4RT is on September 21, and WRK is going to be October 12, and I also know that district and state dates are set this year. Some quick questions: I saw that SCOTTIE was originally scheduled for October 5, which is the date of the Hoover Invitational. Is this officia...

Re: Alabama 2018-2019

I really think that Liberty will go on to be a top team in High School. Given their domination at MSNCT, the Liberty team really did amazing stuff this year. Given their victory against the eventual national champions at MSNCT, Hunter in NY, the James Clemens team will really be one to fear for the ...

After this year's ACE Camp at Huntsville gave me a chance to ta...
