Bumping to show updated field, and to let folks know the field will be closing in the next day or two. We've got plenty of staffers to handle more teams, so if you are interested, please let me know today or tomorrow.

Tentatively closing the field at 8, although we could take 2 more teams without any difficulty. Coaches should have gotten an email. Safe travels, we'll see everyone Saturday.

Transylvania got the early lead, drew clear, and was never threatened. Jefferson A was unhurried early, split the Louisville teams, and finished well for 2nd place by 2 lengths. Louisville A and B dueled in the stretch, and after a photo finish, Louisville B was awarded 3rd based on PPB. Northern Illinois, bumped at the start, recovered nicely 3 wide, wasn't quite good enough to make the top bracket but was clearly the best of the remaining entries after the re-bracket. Jeff B, Jeff C and Jeff D were outrun, but did finish without incident after coming up empty.

For the 2nd year in a row, Alec Krueger (Northern Illinois) dominated the field at over 90 points per game.

Special thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings for sponsoring our tournament, hope everyone enjoys the gift cards. Stats here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/

And extra thanks again to Chris Borglum for a great set of questions.
