Pennsylvania's tournament is absolutely horrid (I'm a State College alum, and played in it three times). Out of curiosity, you wouldn't happen to know who runs it (or really, who provides the questions), would you? With a state as good as Pennsylvania, teams really deserve something better on which...

Pennsylvania's tournament is absolutely horrid (I'm a State College alum, and played in it three times) . Actual question from Pennsylvania's state tournament "British India was divided into 3 countries. Name one of them" (India obviously being one of the correct answers). If that's not a buzzer rac...

kmo is relatively easy, what people usually lose points on is time (seven seconds and under is 10 points, and it decreases down to 5 pts for the first try, second try and you get 2). I could easily answer 75% of the questions myself, if that helps put it in perspective. It's not as evenly distribute...

I wouldn't be surprised if pittsburgh was selected, although I personally would rather go somewhere else (we went to pittsburgh something like 5 times last year).
