Re: 2011 HSNCT discussion

A lot of the geography was very hard, like a tossup on The Gambia I think at this level, any country can be tossed up, especially one as distinctive as Gambia. Agreed. I didn't have a problem with any of the geography questions, and the difficulty was probably at a good level for a national tournam...

Re: 2011 HSNCT discussion

Turing was an answer in two consecutive rounds (18 and 19, I think), once as a tossup and once as a bonus. I thought the questions were excellent, with just a few extraordinarily hard bonuses. There was one asking for the name of an Israeli songwriter that I can't imagine was converted successfully...

Re: IESA Sectional Results

We have to talk to Fitz about scheduling the tournament... he said he would help us but so far we've got nothing. If you could suggest who we should invite for a field of 24 that would be great.

Re: IESA State Tourney Prognostication & Results

It looks like DW and Macomb were fairly evenly matched, and it's a pity my alma mater couldn't pull one off here. But good job by Macomb, becoming the 3rd consecutive AA team to win back-to-back titles (although their final scores aren't reminiscent of a truly dominant team).

Re: IESA Sectional Results

Thanks for getting my back, Jack. I know I can count on you man. BTW Donald, I don't post very often on this site. Call me a noob, but I think ALL competitive events have certain traits in common, such as momentum. And we'll just see about my questions, right? Now that you explain the match to me, P...

Re: IESA Sectional Results

I was just trying to diagnose a reason for the upset price. Of course it is better to study harder questions, and the questions galore questions do suck. For those of you who were offended by my statement, I apologize. That being said, let's talk about the match itself. I heard you were up big at th...

Re: IESA Sectional Results

I feel your pain Price. But perhaps if you want to win sectionals, you should prepare for the IESA-type questions (as bad as they may be). I know that DW plays QG questions at all its conference meets, so they were better suited to those questions than your team. Instead of trying to change the syst...

Re: A fond farewell

You're forgetting Stevenson's Jonathon Safron and Donald Yang, two underrated contributors and crucial members of our team. Jonathon single-handedly led us past Fremd in the Sectionals. It will be hard to replace their production next year.
