Sword Bowl 2006: results, stats, gratitude

Post by Your Genial Quizmaster »

Congratulations to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, winners of the main (junior bird) division of Sword Bowl 2006. Congratulations also to Vanderbilt A, winners of the first-ever senior division for Sword Bowl. Full results and stats are below, but first some thanks are in order.

Thanks go to the outstanding officiating crew: Stephen Taylor, Scotti Whitmire, Markus Iturriaga, Wes Eddings, Tom Michael, James Quintong, Dren Rollins, Joseph Dion and his daughter Ariel, Brad Daviet, Chuck Pearson, Wade Carpenter, and Eileen Steinhice. Thanks to UTC's Ruth Jackson, Nikki Poarch, and Shannon Moore for their versatility, pitching in on stats & logistics as well as moderating, and to the rest of the UTC team for handling buzzer setup and breakdown. Thanks to the bye team readers who were so willing to pitch in during their bye rounds. And thanks to Penn, Oklahoma, & Drake for their respective contributions to the question pool.

Packets are available for sale or trade, for $15 per set. Contact me at steinhic [at] bellsouth [dot] net if interested.

Now, those results:

In the main division (noted as II below to avoid confusion), teams were separated into two brackets for a seven-round round robin, then reseeded into an upper and lower bracket for four more rounds, with the upper division competing for the title. We had a tie for first, leading to a playoff round in which Rose-Hulman defeated Georgetown College 235-165.

In the senior division, Vanderbilt A ran the table and thus won outright without a playoff. By virtue of head-to-head win v. Florida State A, Georgia Tech A took 3rd and thus got a trophy roughly one inch taller. (If there hadn't been a 4th place trophy we'd have had a playoff, of course.)

Congrats to Rose Hullman! Good first time impression upon the circuit. They must've really stepped it up when they played us because we outscored them rather handily for the whole tournament. They took home the tallest trophy, though, so that's all that matters.

also, 12 negs is too much. Someone was a little buzzer happy. :roll:

I'll echo the congrats to everyone on a good job and i hope everyone had a good time, as i did (besides the 7+ hour drive home). Thank you to all the people up at UTC for putting on a good tournament.

Some things I thought I should add to the final stats:
Congrats to Billy Beyer on another neg award. I know that's at least your 3rd or 4th neg award of the year. :-P
Also, by viture of our head to head win over Tenn, the Gators should be 5th and Tenn 6th in the final standings.

I don't think he has those teams in order of final standing because we didn't get first in Division 2. Perhaps he meant to put them in order and just goofed?

Oh yeah. And we were 9-2 if you count the final match with Rose Hullman. I think that would've made Rose Hullman 10-1.
