Re: Quiz Bowl's Systemic Failure At Expansion and Recruitment

I believe that this is a large untapped market and it would be a great opportunity to expand the circuit. It would also expose these schools to GOOD quiz bowl in the process. To my knowledge (and I very well could be wrong), I think Langston is the only HCASC school that has recently participated i...

Re: Potential new program: University of Central Oklahoma

Welcome. We have been waiting for years for UCO to put together a team. The closest team to you is Langston. They scrimmage Oklahoma State regularly.

Two unproven suggestions to those who wish to recruit HBCU's to their event: If you know no students on the team: 1.

Re: How to ensure new SCT teams become new circuit teams

Look at this as a business investment- if we can attract even 20% of these new teams, the circuit will be larger and better off. I agree with this. I think another untapped market lies with the HBCUs. HCASC may be a notoriously bad format, but there are many schools that participate in it, and I th...
