Re: Michigan 2011-12

Overall, I think the battles at the top of tournaments are going to be much closer this year than last year (except for last year's states). This is what I think the best teams in qb will look like next year: 1 - CC A: They return enough talent from last year's A and B teams to make a team with pote...

Re: On-going season rankings

First of all, I wanna say that I have no problem with Fred continuing his rankings and this is not to replace them. What if we used Elo ratings like that used in chess? Every new team can start out with a certain rating which will change as they play games. To determine an initial ranking we can use...

Re: 2012 Midwest Championship Dates: Three Options

Also, if you want to see how MSHSAA makes it even more hilariously convoluted, your event would only be able to attract teams that haven't already traveled outside of the 250 mile limit earlier in the season. We have a 250 mile limit on participation, except MSHSAA recently decided to allow teams t...

Re: 2011 HSNCT discussion

Taking a closer look at the stats here, Novi's run to t-8th is pretty interesting. Certainly they had a nice tournament and some nice wins (two against Dunbar and one against Cistercian), but their bonus conversion is lower than every other team in the top 21. So i looked to see how they got to whe...

Re: Michigan '10-'11

You have a coach who knows what he's doing which is so important, so I'm sure Novi will reload next year too. If our team didn't have an experienced coach we wouldn't be near where we are now. And hopefully we'll see you, Sid et al, and other Michigan players again at ACE this year. Just a little b...

Re: Michigan '10-'11

Yeah, we're graduating Ryan, Dave, Matt, and Chris from our A team and Connor T and Robert C from our B team. Who does Novi lose? Also congratulations to Michigan teams as a whole at HSNCT this past weekend (Props to Sid for being named a Sophomore All Star). Having so many teams finish so well is ...

Re: 2011 NSC - 58 teams

The problem with this tournament is that its on the same day as our graduation. Our team really wanted come, but we cant. Obviously, I understand that you cant change the day of the tournament for one team, but I'm sure we are not the only ones who have this conflict. I hope it is somehow possible f...

Re: 2011 HSNCT discussion

Can I take this time to advocate for NAQT extending the 2 second rule to 5 seconds before being timed out after buzzing in? I think it only leads to annoying discussions like this as the human error of += 0.5 seconds or whatever is much more pronounced when giving 2 seconds to answer compared to 5 ...

Re: HSNCT seeding discussion

So are teams ranked all the way from 1 to 224? Or is it just top 25? I'm not gonna lie, the way you guys made the system to work is pretty sweet. Especially last year when you somehow coordinated the switching between buildings and byes.

Re: On-going season rankings

I wasn't talking about your last post specifically, and I'm not saying you guys deserve to move down. I'm just saying that, after you guys have spent so much effort arguing that your team should be ranked higher, it would be ironic if your team actually moved down in the rankings. Not saying you did...

How ironic would it be if Cistercian moved down in the rankings?

Re: 2011 Midwest Championship May 14, 2011 at Culver (IN)

Novi is interested in coming to this tournament, probably with one team. At this point it looks unlikely that we will be able to come, but we just wanted to let you know that we are considering coming.

I just remember the "finish" question blowing my mind when it went from talking about football to greek mythology. I also love the range of possible acceptable answers :)

Re: 2011 Michigan High School State Championship (3/12/11)

Peter, "Novi, DCD, and GPN basically killed each other" is an overstatement. Novi and GPN didn't even play each other until we were both had our two losses and were out of the tournament. Also, Okemos was actually the one that knocked GPN out in the first place. Since you seem to group Novi, DCD and...
