Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: 2019 PIANO/Minnesota Open

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that the UMN site would require Illinois players for a decent field, but the OSU site wouldn't---the problem being that OSU is a slightly shorter drive from Chicago than UMN. What if the editors allow both sites, but require special approval for people trav...

Re: ACF Nationals logistics and seeding discussion

While I was generally pleased with how the tournament ran, I also do agree that the tiebreaker system was flawed - but in more ways than just one. In our prelim bracket, we finished tied with Kentucky and a staffer told us that we would be contacted to play a tiebreaker match midway through lunch. W...

Re: Illinois '17-'18

Two dark horses that might surprise the circuit next year include Naperville Central and Metea Valley. Naperville Central's JV team this year was very impressive, winning their conference and playing considerably well against us at Masonic Bowl. Given the fact that the entire varsity team next year ...

Re: Illinois '16-'17

As the year comes to an end, I thought that it would be nice to display the collective opinion of HSQB in IL with some mid-season rankings. With the help of Deepak Moparthi (SHS), Kevin Kodama (OPRF), Anishka Bandara (OPRF), Harrison Wang (HC),and Jakob Myers (NN), I have a compendium of teams that ...

Re: Illinois '16-'17

I think there are a couple dark horses to look out for: Fremd and Waubonsie Valley. I'm pretty sure there are no seniors on Fremd's A team, and I'm assuming Brian K will study a lot this summer and become an even stronger player for Waubonsie. Waubonsie Valley is looking to be much better this seas...

Studying Geography

Hey everyone, As a high school student exposed to numerous NAQT packets, I feel like there has been a substantial amount of geography sprinkled within bonuses and tossups. Currently, our team can't answer these questions really well, and I only have the basics covered. What would be the most efficie...

I think the neutrino question could have had a better lead-in... Starting off with Wolfgang Pauli's postulation of the particles seems a bit antipyramidal.

Re: IHSA 2016

I feel like this set has definitely improved from last year, with more of the general high school canon popping up in tossups, even though there were quite a bit of easy early clues dropped. Also, some of the bonuses contain a few difficulty spikes and random info (horses). Overall, I believe this s...
