Teams that competed at Stanford's ACF Fall tournament already received this information, but I'll just cross-post the results here:

Ten teams came to Stanford to play in ACF Fall 2007, held on November 3, 2007. Congratulations to UC Berkeley, who remained undefeated through the round-robin, winning the tournament. Berkeley, led by Paul Lujan -- the second-highest individual scorer in the tournament -- and rounded out by Yogesh, Jenny, and Brian had an impressive average margin of 306.7 points per game. The Division II champion was Stanford "Nein", which went 5-4. Congratulations to all that participated! Full statistics can be found here.

Great tournament, guys. We apologize for delaying the tournament half an hour by wandering around campus looking for the building, but other than that things went real well. It was nice to see some actual D2 teams at ACF Fall West. I'm excited for the new blood on the West Coast.

Also, Paul's neg was great. It's been a while since I've heard a "best neg of the tournament"-worthy neg on an academic packet.

There's still an ACF Fall yet to run.

For those of you who wish to know, the wrong answer can be found on Stanford's tournament recap here. Until the other regional concludes, the right answer is subject to your speculation.

That's hilarious, because I almost negged with that exact answer on that exact question, and instead decided to keep my mouth shut.
