Re: Greatest Quiz Bowl team ever?

2005 NAQT HSNCT Playoffs Fifth Round - Winners' Bracket "Thomas Jefferson A 885, Walton 95" Wait, is this a typo from the NAQT archives? Please tell me its a typo. How a team can put up that kind of a number against an opponent that ended up being tied for 8th in the HSNCT is totally beyond me. Disr...

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

After looking over the results from the Midwest Championship, Kurtis seems to be the likely leading candidate for the top individual performance honors at the NAQT HSNCT, if only for the fact that he accounts for nearly all of the tossup conversion of a potential top 10 team.

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

So, is this the largest quiz bowl tournament ever in recorded history or what? I think I remember reading here somewhere that Brookwood tournaments in the past drew 200+ teams, but I might be just imagining that.

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

-One of those Michigan teams will not make playoffs. Stranger things have happened and I would assume Novi and GPN are good enough to make it, but four teams in the top 10 grossly overstates that region, particularly when considering that the sole team that travels hasn't won everything by a propor...

Re: Michigan 07-08

Another way to help if there are enough sets and open weekends to go around but not enough tournaments would be for some of the teams who don't usually host tournaments throughout the year to start doing so. These things could be happening already and they just aren't advertised here, but teams lik...

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

Yeah, I agree with you about Michigan teams not traveling a lot. That's why I'm relaying you my opinions(although biased) because most other people don't know much about the Michigan circuit besides DCC. DCC is a perennial top performer but this year, the other 3 teams(EL, Novi and GPN) are just as ...

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

It'd also be pretty cool if more people in Michigan running tournaments did a better job of keeping specific stats and posting them to this board, but I guess you can't have everything. Hey, no need to put down the Michigan tournament staff who I think do a phenominal job of running tournaments and...

Re: National Tournament Prognostication

Haha, I would gladly take that bet Douglas, even if it was for a 100 point margin. No team in this tournament could hand GPN half the kind of a defeat you claim Wilmington is capable of, including TJ and Dorman. I don't blame you for that comment though because besides DCC, no team in Michigan trave...

GPN should be solid if they travel a little more, but EL and DCC should have the field covered all year. I see Troy, DCD, GPN in that second tier. after that I would say Churchill, Novi, Kent City, White Cloud, and Hartland have potential. I also thin West Bloomfield may be decent. After that there...

As always, teams from the DC/NE area refuse to acknowledge that good teams exist outside of the East Coast. It's ludicrous that no one suggested that East Lansing should be in the top 10 considering that Kurtis is just as good of a maverick player as Dallas or Charlie. DCC should be awesome as they ...

I'm a graduated Novi player and I believe we had 6 active senior quiz bowl players this year who will no longer be there obviously next year.

College Bowl teams in the South

Out of curiosity, do schools in the South like Duke, Vanderbilt, UNC, etc. have active and competitive quizbowl teams? The reason I ask is I have yet to find up to date home pages for any of these schools like the ones that Harvard, Stanford, and Chicago have for instance. Also, I see that none of t...

I'm pretty sure DCD graduates both of their top two seniors this year so next year will most likely be a rebuilding year for them.

DCC should be weaker next year because they lose basically their entire A team albeit 1 player. However, they do have a knack of getting progressively better as the year moves along so they can't be counted out. Based on this year's NAQT stats, East Lansing also appears to lose basically every membe...
