I don't think our A Team is coming to this but from what I understand from Ryan, one or two teams of the younguns should be coming. I will send out an email tonight to try to find out

Err...I think there may be an error in stats. I talked to my teammate Simon and he says he didn't get 13 tossups--which is eminently plausible, given that he's down as having gotten 12 of them against MSU.

Edit: Also, MSU seems not to have any details?

I think Simon has my line in the second MSU-WUStL game and vice versa. Simon also didn't neg all tournament. This would have been round 6 with a relief moderator in the room who just switched our names.
