Re: autobid thread split

Would programs who qualified teams via autobid (Minnesota, Buffalo, Central Florida, Truman State, Texas A&M, Delaware, McMaster, Ohio State) have hosted SCT without that opportunity? I'm not Bradley, but I don't believe Central Florida would have bid to host without an autobid in place. In hindsig...

Considering what happened at our site, I think he's learned his lesson.

Point of order. I don't think you can actually prove it was misuse at the time.

Re: Where Will You Be Going to College Next Year? 2011-12

Barring shenanigans, I won't be down there until the start of August; on the other hand, that still potentially leaves a few weeks of academic-summer. I'll likely pester you (or the UCF folks, I suppose) for more info once I'm settled in.

I'll be attending grad school at the University of Central Florida; I haven't decided if I trust Bradley's cookies yet, though.

Re: Metro areas without enough good high school quizbowl

They aren't necessarily from metro areas, but each year, including this year, there are teams from Iowa and Wisconsin at HSNCT even though those states don't have developed circuits. Madison, Milwaukee, and Des Moines are all on Charlie's list. None of the Iowa schools currently registered for this...

Re: MUT 2012 at Minnesota (4/14/12)

Is it too late to change my mind? This was too drat long. That or I'm too old to leave Ames at 5 am and get back at 11 pm. Don't get me wrong, we stayed willingly and had fun (did we actually win that last match or was that just a hallucination? it's hard to tell anymore), just... sheesh. Zombie qui...

Re: MUT 2012 at Minnesota (4/14/12)

Hey, if there's a 14th team that wants to play this tournament, please contact me immediately and you can play at an extremely discounted rate. I could possibly be tempted to split the Iowa State team—I have five players currently, and shuffling players in and out just isn't fun—but we're already p...

Re: College Football Game Dates

Those really aren't problems, Alex, nobody hosts anything right after Thanksgiving and Iowa State doesn't have a team, so I expect us at MU to literally be the only people affected by such a conflict. We have a team! Granted, our good years are well in the past at this point, but we still have an i...

Stats.

Definitely props to Drake on this one; all we at Iowa State did was show up and moderate.

Alright, inexperienced moderator question.

Unfortunately, for various reasons we've had to postpone this tournament to May 5th; the event's website has been updated with the other minor changes we've had to make. Most notably, we've had a change in TD, and thus a change of TD contact information.

Matt Cvijanovich Memorial (05/05/07) @ Iowa State

The Iowa State University Quiz Bowl Club is proud to (finally) announce the second annual Matt Cvijanovich Memorial Tournament on March 24, 2007. This will be a full round-robin tournament and, to my knowledge, will qualify as an official NAQT event; rounds will, however, be untimed. The field will ...
