Re: Official Outchange Women's Tourney!

Oh man, this would be a great idea, and I'm honored to be on people's list. An all star college champ tourney would be awesome, too.

Considering where she now lives, she's probably the most likely to have those problems.
I live in Rhode Island, not Siberia!

Re: J! 30th anniversary tournament

Thanks, mrbungle. I have to say, my first response to Maggie when she called was, "Really? What about Ryan?" By the end of that week I was feeling pretty out-campaigned and had more or less accustomed myself to the idea of not coming back. I'm not sure where the votes came from (not from Twitter, t...

I do! I just moved here for school, I'm going to URI for my PhD. I live in Pettaquamscutt Lake Shores of 1A if that means anything to you.

Re: J! 30th anniversary tournament

Leave us not to forget you can vote on multiple platforms. Exactly, that's what I meant by "anyone have any theories", haha. Do we think more people are voting on twitter than on the site? on facebook? It's an interesting idea. We'll never know because TPTB don't post a progress bar on the site or ...

Re: J! 30th anniversary tournament

The twitter votes are pretty interesting - I've been monitoring them, and in total, give or take a few (imperfect method), there have only been about 1000 votes for both the 80s and the 90s. I feel like that's not that many at all. Here's what I found: leah 241 michael 110 andy 126 eugene 182 diane ...

I wonder if the younger contestants/people from 04-2013 will have an advantage because we live in the age of social media.

Re: Calling All TOCers 2003 - 2013

You don't think there's any place for any of the college players? I think that's where you might be wrong. I'm not saying it should be me (on the contrary, I think they'd pick Monica over me) but I think that Nico or Cliff (was he 03?) would deserve the call again, too. They had the college champs i...

Re: Calling All TOCers Class of 2011

Erin McLean is copper bun Monica Thieu is bronze!? That doesn't seem right, especially since Erin advanced to the semifinals of her ToC and Monica didn't. Aww, thanks Steven! I don't like to speculate about anyone's chances about anything, but I definitely agree (and so does the entire class of 201...

Past College Champ Success

Hi y'all, I did some work today. Not sure if this is info compiled somewhere else, but if it is, I couldn't find it. Only one college champ has ever won the Tournament of Champions (Tom Cubbage, 89) and only two others have made it to the finals (Jeff Stewart, 94 and Cliff Galiher, 07). Eight colleg...

Re: Tuesday, July 3, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Been a while since I've been on the board, but I just wanted to pop over and say I'm excited for tonight's game. Leo was our alternate for the college championship, so I'm really looking forward to watching my friend kick ass. Itll be the first time I've watched in forever, haha. Go Leo!!

Re: National History Bee and Bowl Nationals and Jeopardy! reunion 4/27-29 in D.C

Hi there -
I actually might be able to go this year, at least for Friday. I'll let you know if I can figure out the details, but if you need someone else to sit on the champ panel, I can do that too!

For What It's Worth...Study Suggestion

Hi everyone! A friend of mine recently turned me on to the books of Bill Bryson, an incredible author and storyteller. I may be a bit behind the curve here, but I would recommend his stuff for anyone getting ready to take the test or waiting for the call. He writes expansive nonfiction, covering a b...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Actually, it was Erin you beat to the buzzer. She let you ring in with the wrong answer before ringing in with the correct one. She also let Buddy win the match because she knew she could grab a wild card spot. It suits her plans not to look like a power player, all the better to crush her enemies,...

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's high time I added my two sense about the whole thing. It's weird to be retired at the tender age of 20, but I was happy to go out the way I did - both Tom and Justin are extremely great humans, as well as buzzer machines. Nothing is so frustrating than knowing the answers and not being able to ...

I was prepared to make fun of the marine biology student for missing the sunfish clue, but on second (well, technically third) viewing, I have decided Alex's delivery was misleading.

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Stefan's right, that's exactly what I was going for. I had no idea what the threshold for a wild card spot would be, I assumed it would be high, so I went with $16000 as my base line. I knew it was risky, but Greek/Latin roots are a wheelhouse for me (SAT studying still comes in handy, I guess) so I...
