Washington Monument for Gateway Arch I think I made that mistake on a bonus part, because it wanted the tallest something-or-other, and I didn't think the Arch fell under that heading. Going to college in St. Louis, I was shamed. Back in HS, a teammate of mine tried to say Fort Marlboro instead of ...

How disapointing. That post wasn't nearly as pathetic as some of the other ones reposted or alluded to here. Yeah, if the thing got all built up before you saw it, it would look pretty bland, kind of like that Buster the bunny meeting the lesbians thing. In this case, it requires knowing that (a) J...

Andy Goss was to that region every bit an infantile individual as Jason Mueller has been to the MidWest recently (as Mr. Mueller's GROSSLY unsportsmanlike conduct upon losing this year at RCT showed) and none are worthy of defense. At least you didn't find out about what was going on that day by ch...

The problem a lot of sports fans have with the BCS (besides the fact that the formula seemingly changes at random from year to year) is that it only takes two teams. The equivalent would be NAQT saying that only Michigan, Maryland, Berkeley and Florida could play for the D-1 championship last year. ...

...if I'm right that there were the right # of D1 teams, UBC deserves their bid regardless of which set was used. British Columbia got an automatic bid for hosting the sectional. There seems to be an incongruity between NAQT's stance that a team from a lower playoff bracket won't be chosen over a t...

Yes, but FSU heard 19 more tossups. In terms of combined PPTH, FSU was 20.78, Tenn was 21.02.
The individual stats appear to be missing one of Tennessee's rounds, as they have 11 rounds, but they have Tennessee powering 17 or 7.0% to FSU's 19 or 7.25%

3. As for excessive protests, you could just have a rule that a protest will not be adjudicated unless it affected who wins the match... period. That could be an even bigger problem if you use total points to advance. If two teams are tied for the last playoff spot, Team A has 1380 points, and Team...

I'd go with undergrad, first two years of intercollegiate competition, but that if you've never touched a buzzer before and are a grad student, you get one chance. Hell, I think the best option here might just be YOU HAVE ONE YEAR, PERIOD. But then I wouldn't have a chance, as WU couldn't gather the...

As for the competitiveness of the Southeast Div. II, I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. Only one team from there went to the ICT last year, and they finished in the bottom half of a field littered with waitlists and standbys. I have to say I really hope there isn't something in this mystical...
