Re: CO History Doubles: 7/22/2012

Assuming I can make CO weekend I'll play this. I'm decent at US history, know a smattering of Euro, and pretty much nothing about almost everything else. However I also have no particular interest in winning, and really just want to play with someone amiable.

Re: Player Poll 2011-2012 Season

Here are my rankings. I decided to make some very hasty, not at all thought out rankings of the top four players in each major category as well (except social science because I forgot and don't feel like doing it) and an all freshman team. These are meant to be conversation starters, so don't flip o...

Re: CO Matchmaking

I've tentatively joined Marnold, assuming he can make it and isn't scooped up by an actual good team. I would like to point out to anybody looking for a team that Marnold and I have three national titles between us, giving our team a championship pedigree few can match.

Re: 2012 ICT: Division I general discussion

One thing I thought this tournament did a somewhat better job on was choosing answer lines for US current events.
