Re: 2019 Early Fall Tournament (EFT)

I'm sorry if my post came off wrong. I posted here because to me this was the most logical place to put it. I was more hoping someone at WUSTL would see it. I was in no way attempting to criticize you Will, I am aware this is the hosts responsibility. I added the part about passing the feuding reque...

Re: 2019 Early Fall Tournament (EFT)

Is there an announcement for the WUSTL site? Could you please link announcements in this post? We are now within four weeks of the tournament. We are also coincidentally past the time my club could have requested funding for this tournament. Also the number of new people in my club, unfamiliar with...

Re: Preseason Poll 2019-2020

To my knowledge JHU still has Robert and Eric. While they lose Walter to graduation, Tommy Tripp put up pretty solid numbers at nats (they finished 20th at nats without Robert btw). So unless there is something I don't know they are criminally under ranked.

Re: Please codify eligibility restrictions for your novice tournament

I am hoping that the reason people aren't following the eligibility rules is simply out of ignorance and not out of actual malice. While a host might clearly enumerate eligibility rules and send them out to teams, it is quite possible that the teams are simply not reading or understanding them. I th...

Just off the top of my head going off last years list: Yale: Returns all but IKD, Moses possibly moved to the A team? I don't know of any additions Chicago: Loses Jason, probably Matthew to the A team? Penn: Loses all off last years A team except Jamie. Look for big improvements out of Nitin, probab...

Re: Player Poll 2018: Delightfully Devilish

The purpose of this post is two fold. The first is to draw your attention to Weijia Cheng and Graham Reid. Weijia is an excellent player who deserves a spot on your ballot. His skills are best showcased on difficult content. He's on when it counts the most. This year he got to showcase that in a pos...

Re: How to make college quizbowl less insular

Something I think we could try is after a Fall/novice tournament we could have a sort of new team/player seminar where the host school lays out the resources available maybe talk about how to get money for tournaments, talk about how the season works, and overall just provide a human face to quizbow...

Re: Packets, recordings, and detailed stats warm-up survey

I am interested in looking at the different ways in which writers ask about lit questions, to see the differences in how the are converted. For example a common format for asking about lit would be a "this author question", which typically has less deep clues about individual works, and more basic c...
