IL 2018 Midseason Ranking Poll

Post by John Quincy Adams's Alligator »

On behalf of the Illinois Quizbowl discord, I, Vishwa Shanmugam, am pleased to announce the 2018-19 ILQB midseason poll. While anyone can submit a ballot, we will ask that you demonstrate your knowledge of the circuit by justifying your ranking. In your ballot, we will ask you to rank any ten teams in order. The poll will close after two weeks, and we will post a write up with the results afterwards. You can find the poll here: https://goo.gl/forms/yTUHiY91tNfVFs9p2. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me on the forums or on Discord (and make sure you join the IL Discord server if you haven't already!)

The poll will close midnight on December 29th, and results will be tabulated and posted here. Feel free to use this post for mid-season ranking discussion in the meantime.

Just 5 days left to submit a ballot--make sure to get them in! Voter turnout is looking solid right now but could always be better.

The delay in posting comes because many members of the Illinois discord have been hard at work creating a writeup for the results of the poll and exploring each team's strengths and storylines. That writeup can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1d-1 ... 4UMf0/edit

Lastly, the anonymized ballots can be viewed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Thank you to everyone who has participated! I'm looking forward to a great season of Illinois quizbowl ahead of us.
