Also, on the collegequizbowl.org site, you can find some D2 stats if you do not wish to wait until NAQT posts them on their website. Go to Ideas - "Live Stats."Craig Barker on the Yahoo group wrote:Yes, usually announcements from NAQT are the domain of R. Hentzel, but
in the interest of timely information to the community and since I am
the guy who has the laptop hooked into the internet at the moment:
Michigan went undefeated and topped Chicago in the advantaged final to
Division I UG:
1. Virginia Commonwealth
2. Carleton College
Chicago went into to the Finals down 1-0 to Michigan, but claimed two
straight wins to take home this year's Division II title. Chicago had
beaten Harding in a one-game tiebreaker to earn the right to face
Harding's Jason Loy and Michigan's Will Turner were your leading
scorers in Division II.
Division II: Community College
1. Faulkner State CC (Alabama)
2. Broward CC (Florida)
3. Northwest-Shoals CC (Alabama)
Faulkner State triumphed over Broward in the advantaged playoff game
to claim the 2005 NAQT CC title.
Obviously, we'll have much fuller result in the next couple of days,
but we wanted to get the info out to you. Thank you.

First off, an impressive breakout performance by Harding University, which I hope becomes a fixture in the Southwest circuit. Though if you knew about Jason Loy, you would not be surprised much about what his presense does for a team.
Secondly, congratulations to Virginia Commonwealth for their undergraduate title in Division I. Was this a Matt Weiner job or did he have teammates? If the former, for you quizbowl historians: is this the first time a champion at an NAQT or ACF national tournament has been a one-man team?
Finally, a question about the D2 competition, which I hope someone who was there can answer when they read this later today, is: Following the playoffs, Michigan was 12-1 and both Chicago and Harding were 10-3. As noted, Chicago beat Harding in a tiebreaker game, which does not officially count in NAQT standings. Why was there a finals series if Michigan was two games ahead of Chicago in the standings?
