I don't think anyone's interested in hearing my zerg biology bonus, so I won't inflict it on you. I make no promises about protoss physics. I expect that you will be asking us about cloaking techniques and the mysteries of time travel. EDIT: I challenge all comers to Brood War on US East. ID: JPaik...

Glenn looks like he'll just have a full round robin and I guess a final at NAQT State, and be done with it.

Glenn asked me to come, but should I show up to read? My bet is that there should be at least 3 good moderators there, but if not, I'll show.

Jason, Because of the one division in the building across campus, scoresheets did not come in from every round for that division, instead trickling in slowly and in bunches when they did. Joel Gluskin and I did our best to get the stats in to reflect the round numbers that we were putting in and tr...

Division I Division II Interesting, WashU played twice in Round 2. EDIT: Round 5 too. Somethi...

Sorry folks, my bad. I don't have a listing of D2 or UG eligible teams off hand, so please correct any mistakes that you see.

Leo Wolpertx is one, but I'm not sure how I can edit that so not to break the tag. Let me work on that one.

Re: Athens State...

To say that I'm a little upset is an understatement... I thought for sure that 2nd in a SCT would grant us an invite. We fought hard to not get invited... I seriously doubt two teams will not accept. Oh, well. Thanks to all who "prognisticated" that we'd get in. I thought we would, too. Kinda miffe...
