Obviously this is very late notice, but some of my travel plans might be changing and I could well be in the midwest on CO weekend. On that note, any teams in need of a fourth player who can contribute in a semi-meaningful way? This is in no way for sure, but I was just trying to perhaps gauge if th...

Will Turner and I are off to bigger and better things next year. Glorious retirement- leaving Michigan quiz bowl with little more than a large void.

It's a sad time for Michigan quiz bowl. Our ACF Nationals team will excitingly consist of a depressed, reluctant, and surly Will Turner, myself, and like a couple of sandwiches. and andy kravis. In the ever-decreasing likelihood that we actually make it out to Minneapolis for ICT, we'll be fielding ...

Yeah and honestly, I wrote and edited a huge chunk of this tournament too and in my view there were relatively few question I put in there that were guilty of all these alleged crimes. I can certainly think of many (pot of gold, room with a view, immortality ode, leon uris, playboy of the western wo...

I'll take it one step further than Ryan. Though he put in more time and energy than I did for this year's MLK set, I still put in a whole lot, and I think the set was perfectly solid in my areas. That said, we got about two or three packets that had the combination of being both mostly usable with m...

I don't really agree with Jerry's statement that it doesn't take much effort to get to the point where you can answer 2-3 questions per game. Maybe at ACF Fall or some of the easiest tournaments you could make this claim, but I subit that you still definitely have to know some shit to get your 2-3 q...

Yeah I know it's Christmas. Whatever, I'm a Jew. Today's a boring day for me. Anyway, Jerry had to drop from the field, which leaves the MLK field at 21 teams. If there's another team drop, which I've found in the past to be a likely thing, then we'll be at 20 teams. If not, we'll probably axe the h...

If ACF was only catering to the so-called "top few quiz bowl players" in the nation, then I can't think of any reason why I would enjoy that format so much. I've only been playing college quiz bowl for a brief two years now, I'm nowhere near any sort of "top player" status, and yet still I manage to...

Underwhelmed

I've never been vocal in commenting about a tournament before, but I feel justified in saying that I found this year's ICT to be rather disappointing and unsatisfying, and I am compelled to make my feelings known. A couple things: 1) The tournament wasn't especially well run. It certainly wasn't bad...

That was pretty scary what Mike did in that second game of the ACF Fall Finals, but let us recall that it was only against myself and Adam along with two new players, a rather incomplete foursome amounting to statistically half (if not less) of the full Michigan team on ACF.

Looks like it's a reasonably safe bet to toss Michigan into the UG melting pot. Will Turner and I are the entire team as of now, and it's unclear as to me if we will have any other players joining us. If we do, they will almost certainly be undergrads as well. I'd say we'll make at least a little no...
