:chip: is Chip Beall. The less you know about him, the better.
That is a great way to quench my curiosity.

I agree totally. Is that what they( being general here) call trash questions? that might be the only reason i dont like NAQT. and cause lit doesnt show up very often.

We want to see how they do in normal practice for the first few weeks and then divide them up based on subjects (ie Lit, Science, History). 2. By scaring away, I mean that pushing the JV too fast might discourage them fro...

I know this is old news that Georgia is probably going to do 5 people states. Is that confirmed for sure? And are any of the other tourney's planning to do so?
