Re: NAQT SCT @ Rutgers (2/9/19)

There seems to be a discrepancy between the stats on HSQB and the stats on NAQT. Penn D is shown to have a 10-4 overall record and Columbia C a 8-6 overall record on NAQT while HSQB shows Penn D to have a 9-5 record and Columbia C a 9-5 record. Also, HSQB shows Columbia C's PPB to be 20.72 while NAQ...

Re: Non-students playing closed tournaments under false name

I think the issue is not so much that Jordan allowed Will to compete and Jason OK'd it as well, but that it was not very transparent that fact. If Jordan had changed the eligibility rules on the announcement to reflect that, then ok. That'd be ok, because it was clearly stated that those exceptions ...
