Re: GIT XIV (Delta Burke mirror) at WUSTL - November 7, 2009

Right now, looks like we have 8 teams, and we're not quite sure yet how many packets we'll end up with (up to 14). With only 8 teams, a round robin + advantaged final would use 9 packets at most, so if anyone has some good format/bracketing ideas, I'll gladly take them. Otherwise, see everyone on S...

Re: GIT XIV (Delta Burke mirror) at WUSTL - November 7, 2009

As of right now, looks like:

Mizzou (1)
House team (probably 1, possibly 2)
Drake expressed interest, no confirm though

Additionally, it looks as though FOGHAT will not be happening due to TRASH Regionals also being that weekend.

I dunno for sure, but I'm guessing the tie-breaker may have been points per tossup heard? Gordon heard fewer tossups, so if that is the case, then he would win the tie. Just speculation on my part.
