I've heard Mercer before, dunno if they actually have a team or not right now. Several smaller schools are sort of a year-by-year case of whether or not they actually exist. Heck, even Georgia Perimeter fielded a team a couple of years ago, but they seem to have vanished into the ether. Georgia Per...

Never played KMO, but I still feel compelled to note that you may want to vouch for a flAUKing instead...

My apologies.

Virginia's participating in it now? That'll change the landscape a bit.

Also, Alex, I hope it didn't sound like I was saying anything derogatory towards your tournament, of course. I just have a wonderful habit of having words fall out of my mouth like that.

So essentially the Hi-IQ Bowl for all high-schoolers? North Carolina seems to delight in QB formats that don't pit teams off against one another, but I enjoyed Hi-IQ when I did it my senior year and I'm all for at least some diversity in tournament setups. Let me know if there's anything UNC can hel...

Perfect 800?

After noticing a 570-35 score from one of the games at the Tar Heel Cup this weekend, I couldn't help but wonder: In the 20-tossup, 30-point bonus, non-power format, has a team ever managed to completely run the table, scoring a perfect 40 on every tossup and bonus? I can't really conceive of that h...

Raleigh Charter A averaged something in the ballpark of 475 PPG on their way to winning the Tar Heel Cup undefeated. Will Schultz of RCA, averaging about 130 PPG, ran away with the individual scoring award and took home a copy of Connections: Social and Cultural Studies of the Telephone in American ...

Alright; this was arguably my favorite quiz bowl tournament I've went to in my (admittedly limited) collegiate QB experience, which I guess says a fair bit. There were some problems we ran into that I guess are unavoidable for a tournament the size of this one. The biggest two were probably the mode...

The stats seem to be omitting the final RR UNC Ninja-Vandy game, which I wouldn't particularly care about except for the fact that we beat them on the scale of about 400-250 and handed them their only loss of the tournament. Do you happen to have the stats for that handy? Everybody on our teams agre...

Thanks! We're actually in the middle of sending out the invitations right now--they should all be out by tomorrow--but I'm pretty sure we're going to be pulling in folks from left, right and below to moderate on tournament day. When I get a finer count on how many teams and moderators we're expectin...

Due to delays in the mailing of snail-mail invitations, the deadline for early registration has been extended to October 6th. All other deadlines remain the same; thanks for your continued interest.

Everything you could wish to know is revealed here .

But yeah, Dr. Chuck can probably tell you a bit more, seeing as how he r...

5th Annual Tar Heel Cup

The Carolina Academic Team will be hosting the 5th annual Tar Heel Cup at the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill on Saturday, October 29th. This is, I believe, a bit traditionally earlier than we normally run it, but it's the only Saturday relatively close to Thanksgiving when UNC isn't playing a home footba...

I don't think it'll make too much of a difference for our team. Between the funds we receive from Student Congress and the money from our high school tournament, we generally get enough to get reimbursed for gas. So if we assume that gas will be $1/gal more expensive than it was last year for the en...

Doesn't North Carolina just send NCSSM every year?

I could be mistaken.
