I'll bump this thread to remind the teams (and staff) that Minnesota football is hosting Nebraska that day, so plan ahead in traveling and trying to find parking.

What's the format going to be like? Assuming the field is right, 9 teams seems like a tough number to work with.

ACF suggests a RR, then a 3/3/3 split (ends up with 10 games over 12 rounds). Sounds reasonable to me, but clearly up to the Minnesota folks.

See y'all in Minneapolis next weekend.

Jason sent a logistics email out. For those who missed it (hopefully nobody!) here's the guts: Blegen Hall 240, registration 8:30 AM, play 9:00 AM. Parking may be easiest 19th Ave ramp, but that may be confounded by the football game. We may send an update on that.

Sorry for the late response. Madison is now coming so we will plan on doing a round robin followed by splitting into top 4/ middle 3/ middle 3 for playoffs.

Those coming from the south are free to join our wonderful excursion on the light rail from Ft. Snelling (aka the OG light rail terminus)!

Tomorrow? I demand my stats now!

All joking aside, we had a lot of fun at what was my first expedition up to UMN for quizbowl. Hopefully not my last, either :party:

Sorry, I left the stats disk in an overpriced Italian restaurant. They should be up before Saturday!

At this point, I can only guess that Rob is withholding stats in protest of Sam Levin's decision to get the staffers thin-crust pizza for lunch.

I may go back and add proper divisions to this, but, uh, don't hold your breath.
