Re: Spring Undergraduate Novice (SUN) Announcement

Are you open to having mirrors on this set as late as September? (i.e. Having it during the usual collegiate novice timeframe) I would be open to this; I have talked to the likes of Jay and Aayush briefly about the set but not much more. Feel free to rename it though if you have a site as only the ...

Re: SCT, autobids, and ICT size discussion

I think our A team competes just fine with the Georgia's, Alabama's, and Florida's when full strength. It's not a good idea to make global comparisons of team strength based on stats from combined field SCTs played on D2 questions and ACF Fall. Those results are never analogous to comparisons which...

Re: SCT, autobids, and ICT size discussion

Sorry, Peter. I searched UCF and got results for EFT and SCT but not ACF Fall, which as Victor pointed out, aren't posted. It's cool. If you still care the Fall stat link is in the collegiate announcement forum for the FSU ACF site. My teammates are really smart people and the club has come a long ...

Re: SCT, autobids, and ICT size discussion

Or Carleton, or UCF, or WKU, or Yale B, or Virginia B, or true Maryland B.......... I know this probably does not help much, but I just wanted to throw in the comment that UCF has only played one tournament this season as a true A team (Acf fall 2016 I think). Our "A Team" for SCT was our fourth be...

Re: 2016-17 Tournament Schedule: Planning, Discussion, etc.

There's SUN being produced by a bunch of people from Florida, but at Fall-minus difficulty it doesn't exactly fill the niche that MUT covered. It is definitely no substitute for MUT, which will be missed in Florida where it is usually played in May. SUN's original purpose was to cater to both Unive...

Re: Lack of Novice Tournaments

Hi all, this seemed like, other than the formal forum post to go up later today or tomorrow, the appropriate place to mention that the some Florida quizbowlers including myself have been developing a novice for mid to late spring (it's at about 50% done at the time). This discussion was a large part...

Re: Question providers for TV tournaments

Looking back at my A Team Challenge matches online during 2013 and 2014, those questions are pretty awful. The difficulty range is all over the place with questions on obscure household appliances to George Washington two liners.

Re: Toronto Hybrid Mirror in Orlando - June 25

I was wondering if I could play this tournament. I am trying to play with people I have never been on a team with, so I would not mind being a free agent for the time being

Re: Florida 2015-2016

Hi this is Peter Torres. I play quizbowl at the University of Central Florida and also an alum of Gulf Coast High School. I don't know a lot on the subject of high school tournaments but I believe Mitch Alday has at least one a year over at Bainbridge HS in Georgia. UF also runs a high school tourna...

Yes Mister Doctor Professor Borglum. I know of no one on the current UCF team that plans to play it. Granted, our first practice is tomorrow so I will probably know then.

Re: ACFNATIONALS - A JRPG tournament

Hello, I am a quizbowler from ucf who will be staffing hsnct. I would like to ask if I could play. Issue is I have no teammate currently, so if anybody needs one I'd love to join him/her.
