And why on earth would any college use an A-set for a college tournament? Even for community college I would find that unacceptable, although I don't think this is the case considering a 4-year college is hosting it. I don't know the answer, but I do know that we have some students that want to bec...

I personally take KGeee's comments as more of an indictment of how HCASC conditions through small-minded pandering than anything else. HCASC is like the Torah Bowl we had in HS, except our high schools made us aware of College Bowl ( :chip: though it may have been). It has to be a big leap from hav...

I think he was seriously asking if somebody wanted to write new ACF rules, since Matt Weiner pointed out that some aspects of the ACF rules are out-of-date.

Sarcasm like that?

So somebody want to write up a new set of rules? Sarcastic like that? I've never heard of anything like that before. Didn't get plugged in to it in high school and only did it in college when it was required for a scholarship, but did well and liked it. The timed game is the only thing I've known.
