Re: Bonus representation (I'm sure this already was brought up)

I've always found the fact that MOQBA almost always get accurate stats up immediately after the tournament far cooler than any sort of conformity to some pointless aesthetic standard. Maybe it's because I can multiply by 30 in my head though.

Re: Missouri Quiz Bowl 2012-2013

So wow, Hallsville B is very good -- their prelim PPB this weekend was 4th highest there (behind Ladue A/B and Hickman, and ahead of NKC, Oakville, and sans-Alex Clayton!). I could definitely see them placing very highly at nationals and making a run for the HSNCT small school title in a year or two.

Ladue A beat Ladue B in the first game of an advantaged final to win (something like 780-1x0, where I think x is a 2 or a 3). I'm told Hickman beat NKC for 3rd.
