Re: Thanks for the plug

I appreciate Andrew putting a big bulls-eye on our back! :grin: I'm the coach of the Eden Prairie team and we have had an exciting season to say the least, but I'm not here to say we are going to be favorites at this meet as we have never competed in a national competition before. It'll be fun to s...

Not having played GHII in a while, I can't help you that much, but Buckethead himself did record this song for the game, so good luck.

2007 NAQT HSNCT field announcement

http://www.naqt.com/hsnct/2007/field.html

Congrats to all teams that are going.

(And my money's on Eden Prairie A to completely dominate the rest of the field)

EDIT: Sorry, Brendan.

And now the stat packages are up. Congrats to Minnesota for winning Region 10 (and, though we may not have directly competed, to the rest of you regional champs). Also, the bid acceptance form could be misleading to teams who aren't that familiar with the CB rules: "TO ALL TEAMS ADVANCING TO THE NCT...

Out of curiosity, how did the ISD team end up doing?

Inconsistency? You wanna talk inconsistency? MacAlester took us to the final tossup, you guys (Truman A) got within 40, and in the 3rd playoff game, the final score against our B team was 175-100. After that, we beat Drake A 440-240 and stomped Grinnell 420-80. At least my team was consistent...ly ...

I completely agree. Also, a teammate of mine, Rob Heyman, is listed as only having four powers the entire tournament, and he had at least 10, including three in one round. Not sure what's going on here, but I'd like to see the real stats.

Even though my team didn't attend this tournament, I need to congratulate Andrew Hart (TheMoMA) for being top individual scorer in DII. Very impressive.

As a member of the Macalester DII team, I had a lot of fun at this tournament, and was impressed with the quality of teams that showed up. I was surprised that both Drake and St. Olaf were playing as DII teams, having previously played them and seen the caliber of their teams, but this was a well-ru...

Byram Hills A. They defeated us (Chaska) by a score I can't remember. We defeated St. Thomas Academy (our traditional MN rival) by a score of 390-280 to advance to the finals, while Byram Hills defeated Hastings A, another Westchester County, NY team, in their semifinal match. More later.

Evidently this debate is far more divisive than I'd thought. With my comments, I was not expressing my personal feelings on QB; rather, I was trying to peer inside the mind of Charles Beall to find out why he does what he does. We all (hopefully) have lives outside of Quiz Bowl- anyone who doesn't h...

Matt, while audio questions about blenders obviously have no place in your QB aesthetic, could it possibly be that Chip is trying to find the teams that have life experience beyond memorizing lists and attending QB practice? 98% of the tournament is questions on "core knowledge" (non-blenders), so p...

The debate over "Trivia vs. Significa" has been going on too long to measure, and I can't speak directly to allegations of plagiarized questions, but the questions this year seemed to require a wide base of knowledge to answer (in a good way). I still prefer NAQT questions, but we never saw any "ble...

This was my third NAC, and though this was the first year I was actively looking for "coincidences", I have neither seen nor been involved with any in my entire NAC career. I would have preferred to attend NAQT nationals, but we only had an opportunity to attend one, and our school has a much longer...
