Re: Preseason (AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA) Top 25

So, should I focus on getting in to college or becoming good enough that we deserve to be on here? Right now, we very much do not.

Re: Potential Full Time Job Offer in Quiz Bowl

As a high school player whose best subject is history and greatly enjoys hearing well-written history questions, I can say that I would have no desire to play a tournament with questions written in the style of those in the sample packet and would be disappointed and feel like I had wasted my money ...

Re: Dunbar Academic Fall Tournament (10/02/10)

If it ends up on October 9th we may be able to go, and if it's October 30th it'd be closer than the Ohio mirror held that day for us.

Any word on the date? We're going to be putting together our schedule in the next week, and if this will be the fall I'd like to know, both so we can plan to go down there and I don't schedule a college visit on the same weekend.

The United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve is stored in salt domes and is partially in Texas and partially in Louisiana, and it is in salt domes, so they aren't unique to Louisiana.

Ohio '10 - '11

So, with the release of Ohio's first state poll (http://www.createphpbb.com/oac/viewtopic.php?t=875&mforum=oac) and school starting in two weeks, at least for us, I figured someone should go ahead and post this. I'll post the rankings from the poll, along with a bit of my analysis. 1: Northmont. The...

Re: Super Smart Brothers Brawl (duPont Manual Tourney Interest)

February in Ohio has NAQT tournaments in the Northeast that might reduce attendance among southwestern teams on the 5th, 12th, and 19th, and a non-NAQT TU/B event on the 20th. An awful tournament in OAC format is the 26th, so if it were that day we would love a good reason to skip it, and I expect a...

Re: Super Smart Brothers Brawl (duPont Manual Tourney Interest)

Please do, I'd appreciate that very much. I'm not sure why they use single-elimination, almost all other Ohio tournaments rebracket so it's not a regional thing.

Probably Joe Bellas. I'm not sure if he reads these boards or not, but you can PM him on the Ohio boards. It's on November 6 and uses an A set.

The 11th is an Ohio trash tournament, but I'm not sure if Kentucky teams go to that or if that would stop my team from coming to your thing. In January, the 8th is a tournament in Columbus that would probabl...

Re: 2011 NAQT HSNCT: May 27-29, Atlanta

I think Jeff's reasoning is perfect. You have to take into account selection bias - in this case, there are a lot of Southern teams that either do not want to travel to Chicago or can't raise the funds to get there and their votes obviously don't count. A lot of teams are also going to attend HSNCT...

Something like boarding the bus at Cleveland Avenue seems awfully close to trivia to me. A better early clue might involve mentioning Claudette Colvin, but that might be too well-known to come up right away.

In that case, is there a date by which you want all mirrors to be completed and the set clearable? If we host a tournament next year, I would very much like to use this set, but due to already scheduled tournaments and other scheduling constraints we might not be able to find a date until January.

Re: University of Louisville Academic Challenge

Have you decided if you'll ask NAQT for an IS-set or an A-set? There's an Ohio tournament going on the same day, but I may try to convince my team to go to this, depending on which set is used.
