Some portion of OSU is interested in attending this, depending on cost and expected completion time.

More info on our TERP 2 mirror:

-Currently we don't have a lot of moderators for this. In fact, the only confirmed moderator is myself. I will try to rope some Michigan players into reading, but given that this thing is tomorrow, I doubt I will find enough moderators to host a considerable field. Because of that, there is a very real possibility this could be played as a shootout. If anyone has better ideas to get moderators or a better tournament format, please let me know.
-We are charging $40 per team to play this. In the event of a shootout, it will be $10/person.
-This will probably start an hour or so after the conclusion of SCT in order for people to get some food.

5-team round robin, team on bye moderates each round?

(This could probably also be done with 7/9 teams, but I'd be surprised if a lot of teams can stick around for a 7/9 round tournament after SCT. If you get 10 teams, you could do two brackets of 5 and cross-bracket finals.)

The Michigan C-Michigan State A game in DII mistakenly has "zero tossups heard."

In the DII finals, the score was 500-340. I think this got confused with the score from the last playoff game in the stats.

Thanks to Michigan for a well-run tournament. Besides some very minor between round delays, everything otherwise seemed to run very smoothly. Thanks as well to all the excellent D1 readers (the only one of which I recognized was Will) for ensuring we heard over 20 questions (and often times all 24) every round. Much appreciated.

Greg is probably noting the fact that across the FIVE Ohio State teams at this tournament (and kudos to the Ohio State leadership for building such a thriving program so quickly, by the way), only one team (Ohio State D) featured a gap between the top scorer and the bottom scorer of more than 15 PPG, and even on that team the gap was under 21 PPG. To have teams that are good that have all four players contributing equally is uncommon - for a school to be able to field multiple such teams shows your depth. It's a compliment.

I fixed this. Hopefully the individual stats weren't too far off...

I was aware of that the first time I looked at the stats, but I didn't know what else Greg was saying about our team.

Thanks Bryce. We've been working hard to get people involved and motivated.

They were fine, but your fix didn't make it into the stats on NAQT's page. Also, the tiebreaker between our B team and Central Michigan isn't included in either set.

We're attempting to find the scoresheet for your B team and Central Michigan. Regarding the NAQT's page, it was decided by them that to follow the info on my scoresheet (which shows you guys at 450 not 500).
