Well, when it became obvious they would not get through the prelims and their readers would mutiny, they just said "enough is enough, we're going to playoffs" after 8 of the 11 prelim games.

These stats aren't even right. UNC A was in our bracket and played 8 rounds but many teams in the same bracket are listed as playing only 6, even though every team should have played 7 (I know we did). Also, it would have been nice to have the playoff stats; for some reason many recent tournaments haven't included them.

Yeah, those stats are very very wrong. For example, Chicago B evidently only heard 60 questions and still managed to place third. Funny, because in a total of six rounds we anwered 78 tossups and had 16 negs. Unless someone decided to change from base 10 to base 20 arithmetic half way through, I don't think those stats reflect reality. As for playoff stats, I sympathize with the tournament directors. It was late and we were all very tired of hearing Wallace Stevens bonuses. I think my stats went down in the playoffs due to Seth Samelson's beastly offense, so I'm not complaining too much.

I have to say that scoring 440 points in a game where 0 tossups were read is mighty impressive.
