Re: It's Academic Predictions and Beltway League Discussion

I like this. Another thing we could talk about, is how we can get some of these teams who DO compete (sometimes even successfully) to make the big jump from keegan/mac speed questions to pyramidal quizbowl. No reason schools like poolesville, churchill, wootton, sherwood, etc couldn't do it!
