Pi?

Mac McGarry: "if a cubic function is third degree, what degree is a linear function?"
Springbrook: "180!"

This lovely little neg can be seen when Springbrook (who somehow made the playoffs) dukes it out against GDS and Gonzaga on May 21st on DC area It's Academic

Desk Number Relevance

Watching (and participating in) this season of It's Academic , I couldn't help but notice a pattern relating to success and desk position. In all three games that we taped this season, the team seated at Desk #1 (the one that is on the left on TV, farthest from Mac McGarry) won. I know that Gonzaga ...

It's Ac Semi Results

TJ did fall to Walter Johnson, losing by 20. Churchill was ahead going into the last round I believe. Blake (without their resident Jeopardy champ) beat Blair by 40. National Cathedral was up by 55 going into the last round. Richard Montgomery beat St. Albans and Gonzaga by a comfortable margin, mak...

If you are talking about supremacy in the whole DC area, then it is easy but somewhat negligible to forget about the District schools (Private and Public) who compete far less frequently. Georgetown Day, Banneker, Gonzaga, National Cathedral, St. Anselm's, and St. Albans have all made the semifinals...

Yup. We at St. Albans defeated Holton-Arms in the second round, and we and National Cathedral will both be participating in the Rumble on the Pike.
Should be interesting because neither of us ever really play any non-televised tournaments. We normally just play one another over and over again.
