Re: Ezell-Harding Academic Tournament - September 19, 2009

Worksheets are really common in Tennessee, the only tournament we played this year that didn't have them was UTC. At Ezell-Harding it's usually 15 questions, 2 minutes. In the three years I've played it, it's been housewritten.

Re: Tennessee '08-'09

I just looked up PACE. Looks fun, I really want to do it, but it depends on how my teammates will like it (and if our coach lets us...) Ditto for me and my team. I thought we had to place at TACA to qualify, but we're already qualified for TACA. Our coaches letting us is our main issue....they're n...

Re: How Often/When Does Your Team Practice?

Official practices are Tuesday/Thursday from 3:45-4:30... The week before a tournament we go to five. I bring packets and we have unofficial practices whenever we can though, since both of us seniors are used to an hour a day, four or five days a week (we used to have coaches that cared)...

Re: What got you into Quizbowl?

My freshman year, the only freshman on the team at the time just told me I would show up to practice once. (That's how we do most of our recruiting...) I had nothing better to do, so I kept doing so for a while. By the end of the year I was hooked.

Re: Tennessee '08-'09

I'm from Knox West in Knoxville. We've been through a couple of down years, and had to switch coaches twice. Due to the coach that just left us being a jerk, we didn't really get to play much last year, since state was during prom (even though most of us would go there instead of prom), and she had ...
