I don't think most programs make use of "advisors;" it's probably a more traditional reason that the Ohio State team faded away. There are some places where you have to have an sponsor to get university recognition, like, well, Duke (though it's entirely up to the respective club what role if any t...

I won't be coming down until the 24th and 25th. I can't do it this weekend. I was hoping someone might be able to show me around campus or at least tell me some places to go that I should check out. Thanks The 24th's a much better day for me, I'll have some time. Classes end the 26th, 27th is the L...

Zach - I'm assuming that you're talking about the April 18th Blue Devil days. Coincidentally, I'm a staff assistant at the admissions office (I can't get anyone in, but I can keep people out :twisted: ) There aren't any tours on Sundays and the tours are at 11 and 3 on Monday. However, you can stop ...

What was the final score?

Three cheers for the alma mater. We played Dorman A something like 10 times my last two years, winning twice, getting blown out once, and losing all the rest on the last question.

Good to see them finally pull it out.

I'm curious as to why it's obvious that Team B is better than Team A. In fact, I'd say the opposite is true, Team A is better than Team B. Unless Team B had its wins against, say, DCC, Maggie Walker, Raleigh Charter, Solon and the blowout against TJ, while Team A had its wins against C and D teams, ...

They did indeed. Does anyone know why? Spotswood A was slotted into the same division as TJ A. Spostwood B was in the same division as TJB and Raleigh Charter A. They probably figured that TJ A was unbeatable and instead of going for a safer #2 slot in the division decided to take a chance and go f...

RC A wanted to go home. That's why the second semifinal was delayed when I had to switch RC's buzzers out. From what their coach told me, NCSSM has an interim between-semesters period when most of their students are not on campus. Congratulations to TJ and apologies for any unevenness in the questio...

Where did Dorman end up, and did they not bring their first team?

Because January 15 falls on MLK Weekend, I'm extending the early bird registration discount until Monday, January 24. From the registrations so far, it looks like we'll have a strong field this year.

I have no idea where I fit in under Tom's scale of High School all-stars he's seen in college. But yeah, why does anyone who goes into the next level of competition in any activity sometimes fail, not just quizbowl? Why are there draft busts in any sport? And yeah, there just are a whole lot more th...

Yes, Cookeville, Walton, and Dorman are probably overshadowing everyone in their respective states this year. I think that you, Ezell-Harding, Central, us (Fort Mill), and Dorman B are better than we're getting credit for (especially Dorman B. They're not only overshadowed by being the other SC team...
