  1. [07:50] * Now talking in #TexasInvitational
  2. [07:50] * mib_1p9c15 (Mibbit@cloak-AF28ECD8.lightspeed.stlsmo.sbcglobal.net) has joined #TexasInvitational
  3. [08:07] * HenryGorman (Mibbit@1AC4199.C34C0576.64E4BCA0.IP) has joined #TexasInvitational
  4. [08:08] <HenryGorman> At the Half: Max Schindler, 165, Harmony, 55
  5. [08:09] <HenryGorman> Max fifteens science!
  6. [08:10] <HenryGorman> Sadly, Henry of Harmony no longer has his street urchin cap
  7. [08:10] * Wasabi (Mibbit@F2C6ACF0.A4D9BCC1.64E4BCA0.IP) has joined #TexasInvitational
  8. [08:10] <Wasabi> who's playing right now?
  9. [08:11] <HenryGorman> Max is stiller this morning, mostly, only moving dramatically to throw his face into his hands, and then clutch behind his head in sorrow when he negs
  10. [08:11] <HenryGorman> Max of Ladue, Harmony
  11. [08:11] <HenryGorman> Everyone seems a little groggy now
  12. [08:11] <HenryGorman> not surprising, since it's the AM
  13. [08:11] <HenryGorman> Harmony tens their bonus
  14. [08:12] <HenryGorman> Max scores a remarkable lit fifteen
  15. [08:14] <HenryGorman> His thumb strokes the button on his buzzer, and he slips into pressing it, negging
  16. [08:15] <HenryGorman> Harmony picks up the tossup, is unable to capetalize on this bonus, which they bagel
  17. [08:16] <HenryGorman> Current events goes dead completely
  18. [08:17] <HenryGorman> Max picks up chemistry!
  19. [08:18] <HenryGorman> and thirties an American lit bonus
  20. [08:18] <HenryGorman> Negs on trash-- it's rather egregious too
  21. [08:18] <HenryGorman> Merrick of Harmony picks it up
  22. [08:19] <HenryGorman> End: Max: 420, Harmony, 95
  23. [08:19] <HenryGorman> or maybe Max: 315, Harmony 95
  24. [08:19] <HenryGorman> wait, yes, that's right
  25. [08:19] <HenryGorman> it's early
  26. [08:20] <enagler> go get some caffeine in your system
  27. [08:20] <HenryGorman> Or rather, caffinate our scorekeeper
  28. [08:20] <enagler> either way
  29. [08:20] <HenryGorman> indeed[08:21] <HenryGorman> I'm frankly rather shocked that any of us are remotely functional at this hour
  30. [08:21] <HenryGorman> it's a good two and a half hours before I usually wake up...
  31. [08:21] <enagler> is kwartler reading? he's usually somewhat incoherent until later in the day
  32. [08:22] * ryu (~7531-188@cloak-DE740162.nts.wustl.edu) has joined #TexasInvitational
  33. [08:22] <HenryGorman> he is!
  34. [08:22] <HenryGorman> reading, that is
  35. [08:23] <HenryGorman> but I would guess at least sort of incoherent as well
  36. [08:23] <enagler> hopefully he's comprehensible this morning
  37. [08:24] <HenryGorman> In my memories of his morning tournament-reading, he's usually comprehensible-- he just looks miserable
  38. [08:24] <enagler> yeah, that's true, he usually does fine at tournaments
  39. [08:25] * mib_5jk44t (Mibbit@cloak-4D02B5DA.mycingular.net) has joined #TexasInvitational
  40. [08:25] * ryu (~7531-188@cloak-DE740162.nts.wustl.edu) Quit (Quit: ryu)
  41. [08:25] <HenryGorman> now, Max versus Dorman
  42. [08:26] <HenryGorman> Madhav's bow tie is purple today
  43. [08:26] <HenryGorman> Tabitha starts the round with a slammingly fast power
  44. [08:27] <HenryGorman> like, about three words
  45. [08:27] <HenryGorman> and looks well-deservedly pleased with herself
  46. [08:27] <HenryGorman> Brian gets the second TU for them, trash
  47. [08:27] <HenryGorman> the chairs in this room rock
  48. [08:27] <HenryGorman> and turn back and forth
  49. [08:28] <Wasabi> and squeak
  50. [08:28] <HenryGorman> Madhav is rotating left and right, Max is rocking
  51. [08:28] <HenryGorman> Madhav fifteens science, Max is just barely beat out, he lets out a groan
  52. [08:29] <HenryGorman> and Max is in with a ten on geography
  53. [08:30] * mib_5jk44t (Mibbit@cloak-4D02B5DA.mycingular.net) Quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
  54. [08:30] <HenryGorman> he's not super-happy to hear that the bonus will also be geography, though, groaning about it
  55. [08:30] <HenryGorman> but is surprised when he twenties it
  56. [08:30] <HenryGorman> Here, he listens for a while, and sticks his tongue out a bit, before pulling a quick fifteen on art
  57. [08:31] <HenryGorman> Meghan or Dorman twirls her pen
  58. [08:31] <HenryGorman> I didn't realize when I liveblogged last year that Megan is a Clusserath-- carrying on a family legacy
  59. [08:31] * stats (Mibbit@8CFA527A.C21CA8E1.64E4BCA0.IP) has joined #TexasInvitational
  60. [08:31] <HenryGorman> Tabitha fifteens again on history
  61. [08:32] <stats> Does anyone want complete stats posted after each round?
  62. [08:32] <HenryGorman> Max gets lit
  63. [08:33] <HenryGorman> he grins and head-shakes his way through the bonus
  64. [08:33] <HenryGorman> Tabitha fifteens trash
  65. [08:34] <HenryGorman> the bonus is lit-- they twenty it
  66. [08:34] <HenryGorman> Max takes a history
  67. [08:34] <HenryGorman> His hair is disheveled today
  68. [08:35] <HenryGorman> he continually tosses it back and forth
  69. [08:35] <stats> does he seem stressed or relaxed?
  70. [08:35] <HenryGorman> and then tens politics
  71. [08:35] <HenryGorman> he seems a little agitated
  72. [08:35] <HenryGorman> but he's not freaking out
  73. [08:35] <HenryGorman> even though Dorman has been bringing the pressure
  74. [08:35] <HenryGorman> pulls out a solid 20 on the bonus
  75. [08:36] <HenryGorman> Tabitha tens bible
  76. [08:37] <HenryGorman> and they twenty an academic common links
  77. [08:37] <HenryGorman> Score: Dorman 190, Max 145
  78. [08:37] <HenryGorman> Now, Max holds his pencil like a dagger
  79. [08:37] <stats> how far into the bout is that?
  80. [08:37] <HenryGorman> Brian presses the tip of his pen is forward
  81. [08:37] <HenryGorman> *into his forehead
  82. [08:37] <HenryGorman> that was the half
  83. [08:38] <HenryGorman> Madhav negs with a non-sequitor
  84. [08:38] <HenryGorman> Max picks up the tossup, twenties
  85. [08:39] <HenryGorman> Tabitha fifteens history, again
  86. [08:39] <HenryGorman> this has been a superb round for her
  87. [08:39] <HenryGorman> they ten the bonus
  88. [08:39] <HenryGorman> Madhav fifteens lit!
  89. [08:39] <HenryGorman> *myth
  90. [08:40] <HenryGorman> they twenty world history
  91. [08:40] <HenryGorman> Madhav's right leg twitches beneat the table
  92. [08:40] <HenryGorman> Max negs on science
  93. [08:41] <HenryGorman> and chews his pen
  94. [08:41] <stats> he cant afford to neg...
  95. [08:41] <HenryGorman> unlike yesterday, he doesn't have snacks to eat when he negs
  96. [08:41] <HenryGorman> Dorman picks up the TU
  97. [08:42] <HenryGorman> Max tens current events
  98. [08:43] <HenryGorman> a bonus
  99. [08:43] <HenryGorman> he weighs two answers
  100. [08:43] <HenryGorman> with gesturing with his hands, suggesting scales
  101. [08:43] <HenryGorman> he guesses correctly
  102. [08:43] <HenryGorman> he twenties the bonus!
  103. [08:43] <HenryGorman> another tossup
  104. [08:44] <mib_1p9c15> what is happening?
  105. [08:44] <mib_1p9c15> sorry, rather, what is the score*
  106. [08:44] <HenryGorman> Time-out

  108. [08:45] <HenryGorman> *265 Dorman
  109. [08:45] <HenryGorman> Max negs on religion!
  110. [08:45] <HenryGorman> Madhav picks it up

  113. [08:46] <HenryGorman> We have a couple of minutes left
  114. [08:46] <HenryGorman> Max often speaks under his breath
  115. [08:46] <mib_nardol> current match update?
  116. [08:46] <HenryGorman> Tabitha picks up geography
  117. [08:47] <HenryGorman> At a recent time out, the score was 265-225, in favor of Dorman
  118. [08:47] <HenryGorman> playing Max
  119. [08:47] <HenryGorman> Dorman has gotten everything since then

  122. [08:47] <HenryGorman> Meghan tens lit
  123. [08:48] <HenryGorman> The buzzer goes in the middle of a bonus, which is thirtied by Dorman
  124. [08:48] <HenryGorman> Final score: 375-220
  125. [08:49] <HenryGorman> a solid victory for Dorman

  138. [08:59] <HenryGorman> but I will not talk back to him
  139. [08:59] <HenryGorman> Max tests a buzzer next to him because "otherwise, it will feel lonely"
  140. [08:59] <mib_1p9c15> tell him his fellow brown friend from ladue is anticipating a victory
  141. [09:00] <HenryGorman> I did!

  150. [09:02] <HenryGorman> a history tossup
  151. [09:02] <HenryGorman> Max just beats out Hunter
  152. [09:02] <HenryGorman> a hilarious prompt
  153. [09:03] <HenryGorman> evidently, Max didn't see Lincoln
  154. [09:03] <HenryGorman> Max fifteens lit!
  155. [09:04] <HenryGorman> tens his bonus
  156. [09:04] <HenryGorman> Zihan circles his hand, as if he's trying to pull something from the air
  157. [09:04] <HenryGorman> Max picks up another TU, current events
  158. [09:04] <mib_nardol> so. what is max saying to you during bonuses :O
  159. [09:05] <WorstQEvr> hey, i might put a few virginia state championship news items in here to avoid creating too many liveblog rooms.
  160. [09:05] <HenryGorman> that would work
  161. [09:05] <HenryGorman> Max fifteens another TU
  162. [09:05] <HenryGorman> an "awwww" is tossed up by Hunter
  163. [09:06] <HenryGorman> *thrown up
  164. [09:06] <HenryGorman> Max turns to me and asks: "It's X, right?"
  165. [09:06] <HenryGorman> I raise my eyebrow
  166. [09:06] <HenryGorman> it is X, though
  167. [09:06] <stats> which eyebrow?
  168. [09:06] <HenryGorman> left
  169. [09:06] <mib_nardol> thats important
  170. [09:06] <HenryGorman> Max tilts his whole desk foreward
  171. [09:07] * mib_o67uo3 (Mibbit@cloak-24126F01.gar.clearwire-wmx.net) has joined #TexasInvitational
  172. [09:07] <HenryGorman> Marianna brings hunter into the game
  173. [09:07] <HenryGorman> Willie is spinning his pen
  174. [09:07] <HenryGorman> Wilton's legs bob
  175. [09:07] <HenryGorman> Marianna shakes a hand as they miss a bonus part
  176. [09:08] <HenryGorman> Max gets a geography tossup that both teams let run rather long
  177. [09:09] <HenryGorman> Danny Chupin makes him enunciate his answer
  178. [09:09] <HenryGorman> I accidentally buzz in in the middle of a bonus
  179. [09:09] <HenryGorman> Now Max negs on science
  180. [09:09] <mib_nardol> did max test your buzzer b/f the match?
  181. [09:09] <HenryGorman> Max's foot shakes
  182. [09:09] <HenryGorman> yes
  183. [09:09] <Wasabi> who accidentally buzz?
  184. [09:09] <HenryGorman> I did
  185. [09:10] <mib_nardol> such foresight
  186. [09:10] <HenryGorman> Willie air-claps
  187. [09:10] <HenryGorman> and spins his pen
  188. [09:10] <HenryGorman> Hunter picks up a tossup
  189. [09:10] <HenryGorman> and they thirty a British history bonus
  190. [09:10] <HenryGorman> Willie briefly mock-plays piano on a classical music tossup
  191. [09:11] <HenryGorman> but Max beats him anyway
  192. [09:11] <HenryGorman> Max turns to me: "I don't know.  I do not know."
  193. [09:11] <HenryGorman> he tens the science bonus
  194. [09:11] <HenryGorman> Max has 185 at the half, Hunter has 60
  195. [09:12] <HenryGorman> Hunter's coach, bedecked in a flannel shirt, gives them a pep-talk
  196. [09:13] <mib_nardol> you should give one to max!
  197. [09:13] <HenryGorman> I realize that the purple shirts that Hunter has are team-shirts
  198. [09:13] <HenryGorman> Max doesn't need one-- he's winning pretty comfortably
  199. [09:13] <HenryGorman> Hunter picks up a myth tossup
  200. [09:14] <HenryGorman> and twenty the bonus
  201. [09:14] <HenryGorman> Max gets an amusing religion tossup
  202. [09:15] <HenryGorman> Zihan is taking notes
  203. [09:15] <HenryGorman> Wilton's smile is gone
  204. [09:15] <HenryGorman> Max twenties the bonus
  205. [09:16] <HenryGorman> Zihan negs
  206. [09:16] <HenryGorman> he is a consonant off
  207. [09:16] <HenryGorman> Max is confused, and fails to pick it up
  208. [09:16] <HenryGorman> and now he leans his whole chair forward
  209. [09:16] <HenryGorman> tens a history bonus
  210. [09:16] <HenryGorman> *tossup
  211. [09:17] <HenryGorman> Willie drinks from a plastic water-bottle
  212. [09:17] <HenryGorman> and shakes a hand up and down
  213. [09:17] <HenryGorman> his leg bobs
  214. [09:18] <HenryGorman> Zihan looks pensive
  215. [09:18] <HenryGorman> Max gets a lit tossup
  216. [09:18] <HenryGorman> and tens a math bonus
  217. [09:19] <HenryGorman> and a classical music
  218. [09:19] <mib_nardol> oh quick question. the bellarmine team doesn't have sameer on it does it?
  219. [09:19] <HenryGorman> Now, Willie's arms are crossed across his stomach.  He rocks back and forth on his chair
  220. [09:19] <mib_1p9c15> not for naqt
  221. [09:19] <HenryGorman> No it doesn't

  230. [09:21] <HenryGorman> Max: "This has a name.  I don't know its name."
  231. [09:21] <HenryGorman> Indeed, he doesn't
  232. [09:21] <HenryGorman> to be fair, it's one of those events where most people know what the event is but don't know its name
  233. [09:21] <HenryGorman> Max has gotten yet another tossup
  234. [09:22] <HenryGorman> he tens a Phil bonus
  235. [09:22] <mib_nardol> the game sounds over
  236. [09:22] <mib_nardol> is it?
  237. [09:22] <HenryGorman> Max fifteens bio
  238. [09:22] <HenryGorman> I think that it is

  240. [09:23] <HenryGorman> and the game is over
  241. [09:23] <HenryGorman> wait, not quite
  242. [09:23] <HenryGorman> Max calls time-out just before the clock runs out
  243. [09:23] <HenryGorman> to get the last tossup read
  244. [09:24] <HenryGorman> and it's trash!
  245. [09:24] <HenryGorman> and Max negs, and Willie picks it up
  246. [09:24] <HenryGorman> and is awfully pleased with himself
  247. [09:25] <HenryGorman> and they zero a CS bonus

  253. [09:27] <mib_1p9c15> what was the final score?
  254. [09:27] <stats> does anyone want complete stats posted after each round?
  255. [09:27] <mib_nardol> that would be ince
  256. [09:27] <mib_1p9c15> yes, please
  257. [09:27] <HenryGorman> I don't know, it was crushing
  258. [09:27] <HenryGorman> Max won overwhelmingly
  259. [09:28] <HenryGorman> Max, on being picked up and tossed in the air: "I didn't see that coming"
  260. [09:28] <HenryGorman> Now, Max vs. DCC
  261. [09:28] <HenryGorman> I've found it convenient to follow him around
  262. [09:28] <HenryGorman> he starts off the game by negging on history
  263. [09:29] <HenryGorman> bit Collin fails to take advantage
  264. [09:29] <HenryGorman> Max gets lit

  822. [13:21] <evilmonkey> sadly, I will not be nearly as entertaining Henry
  823. [13:21] <evilmonkey> as Henry, rather.
  824. [13:21] <asdf> haha who are you?
  825. [13:22] <evilmonkey> Bryce Durgin of Texas A&M
  826. [13:23] <evilmonkey> I'm currently watching my freshmen play Texas-Austin; after 2, this game is tied at 20
  827. [13:23] <asdf> oh ok
  828. [13:24] <evilmonkey> Will Linz, formerly of Temple confusedly buzzes in at the end, as does Ellis.  Neither can pick up the lit.
  829. [13:25] <evilmonkey> Near the end, Daniel Chapman pick up an American history tossup.  On the bonus, Daniel Chupin doesn't even look up, as they 20 a physics bonus.
  830. [13:27] <evilmonkey> Ellis tries to pull music near the end; the moderator, conditioned by SCT rules, almost negs him before remembering he has five seconds; but the added time is still insufficient to pull the tossup.
  831. [13:29] <evilmonkey> Will of A&M buzzes and fails to pick it up.  On the biology tossup that follows, Ellis once again negs, and Patrick (a freshman from Germany) picks it up at the end.
  832. [13:30] <evilmonkey> Upon hearing the bonus, Will shakes his head in dismay.  Zero on the bonus for A&M.
  833. [13:30] <Itamar> category?
  834. [13:30] <evilmonkey> Ellis leans back in his chair, perhaps relaxing after negging twice in a row.
  835. [13:31] <evilmonkey> History on that last one.  A common name art tossup is passing over their heads with the Longhorns two Daniel's perk up, racing each other, and Chapman gets the tossup.
  836. [13:32] <evilmonkey> A jazz bonus causes a player to mutter the first of what is sure to be many expletives under his breath, as they 0 this one.
  837. [13:33] <evilmonkey> Chupin awakes from his hunched state and buzzes excitedly on lit, but alas, is wrong.  A&M fails to pick it up at thend.
  838. [13:37] <evilmonkey> Computer Science, and Chris Price, a grad student who last was seen as an Ohio high schooler, negs.  Texas picks it up, and upon hearing the biology bonus Chapman sits up, tapping his pencil to his lips.  They miss the first part, and manage only to 10 the bonus.
  839. [13:37] <evilmonkey> At the half, Texas leads A&M 85-25.
  840. [13:38] <evilmonkey> Neither of these teams seem likely to challenge Bellarmine or Rice in this bracket.
  841. [13:38] <Itamar> any reports from other rooms?
  842. [13:38] <evilmonkey> Unfortunately, no.
  843. [13:38] <WorstQEvr> do the people who have to read games between two actual colleges at texas acf regionals feel cheated
  844. [13:39] <evilmonkey> At least 5 staffers from SCT are now playing regionals.
  845. [13:39] <asdf> Is Bellarmine with Sameer?
  846. [13:39] <evilmonkey> Bellarmine does have Sameer.
  847. [13:40] <asdf> Ah ok, was he there at SCT?
  848. [13:40] <HeyTanay> no
  849. [13:40] <asdf> I heard he wasn't at least for some part
  850. [13:40] <asdf> ok, thanks
  851. [13:41] <evilmonkey> Tossup 11 is gotten by Texas, who 10s the bonus.  Chupin raises a hand to his face as he listened to myth, and buzzes at the end, incorrectly. A&M freshman Colin picks up his first tossup, and Chris uses some first-hand knowledge to pick up 20 on the bonus.  
  852. [13:42] <Itamar> until what time are rounds being played tonight

  854. [13:42] <evilmonkey> All laugh at some bonus part, lightening the mood in the round.
  855. [13:43] <evilmonkey> Will picks up a lit tossup; rounds will be played until 11, I believe
  856. [13:44] <asdf> How's the timing been at the tournament so far? Is everything going on time?
  857. [13:44] <evilmonkey> The philosophy bonus gives 10 for will; the score now stands at 105-85
  858. [13:44] <evilmonkey> 20 rather on the bonus
  859. [13:44] <evilmonkey> the tournament is running 30 minutes early
  860. [13:45] <evilmonkey> Danny Chupin buzzes in on science correctly; Will looks down, smiles, looks over at his team, and looks back down.
  861. [13:45] * mib_6fidhv (Mibbit@1B3761CD.5A6148D3.46EEDA8.IP) has joined #TexasInvitational
  862. [13:45] <evilmonkey> Texas listens intently to the art bonus, finally picking up 10 at the end.
  863. [13:46] <evilmonkey> Ellis breaks out in laughter at a clue early in the history tossup, then settles back into contemplation.

  865. [13:47] <evilmonkey> That tossup wends its way to the end.  Chupin negs, and Colin picks it up at the end.  Victorious, he sits up in his chair as he listens to the astronomy bonus.
  866. [13:48] <evilmonkey> Next Round - Hunter v. St. John's, or Dorman v. Bellarmine?
  867. [13:48] <HeyTanay> Dorman Bellarmine
  868. [13:48] <Itamar> Dorman
  869. [13:48] <HeyTanay> grudge match from HSNCT
  870. [13:49] <evilmonkey> That astronomy bonus is 0d.  (This is subject to Romero allowing me to continue this role)
  871. [13:51] <evilmonkey> Texas picks up the tossup, and hears a music bonus; Ellis seems excitable as he rocks back and forth in his chair, but they 0 the bonus
  872. [13:51] <evilmonkey> after 17, the score is 130-95
  873. [13:53] <evilmonkey> A geography tossup turns to myth, which Chupin gets; tapping his pencil on the wooden table, the last name in the bonus part is singularized, resulting in yet another zero.
  874. [13:53] * bhn (Mibbit@FAB0C40B.93E64A00.190DB17B.IP) has joined #TexasInvitational
  875. [13:53] <evilmonkey> Will raises his buzzer, but averts his gaze from the moderator, indicating he knows not the tossup.  The Daniels do, however, and Chapman wins the race on the music tossup.
  876. [13:55] <evilmonkey> On the history bonus, Chupin looks down, mumbling "Goodness" to himself, and can't pull the first two parts; but the third part is easy, and after 18, Texas leads 160 to 95
  877. [13:56] <evilmonkey> Ellis triumphantly reclines as he buzzes on the religion.  Texas seems confused about the mythology in question for the first part of the bonus, but recovers in time to 10 the bonus.
  878. [13:58] * bhn (Mibbit@FAB0C40B.93E64A00.190DB17B.IP) Quit (Quit: bhn)
  879. [13:58] <evilmonkey> Alas, it appears A&M's winning streak over state rivals will end.  After Chupin buzzes incorrectly, Will guesses wildly but correctly, pulling A&M into triple digits.
  880. [14:00] <evilmonkey> On the chemistry, Will tries the strategy of guessing things he's heard of; Patrick responds to an inquiry with "Bro, I'm a history guy", and A&M 20s the bonus. 180-125, Texas.
  881. [14:02] <evilmonkey> Dorman and Bellarmine has already started; I sneak in after Bellarmine answers the first question, and they 20 the history bonus.
  882. [14:02] <evilmonkey> expressively stating the 3rd part in unison.
  883. [14:03] <evilmonkey> Sameer buzzes in expressively on physics, but is wrong; he leans his hand against his head, and lets out a sigh as he realizes what it must be.  Madhav picks it up at the end.
  884. [14:04] <evilmonkey> Max Schindler is reading his own packet in this room, the "bye reader" room.
  885. [14:04] <evilmonkey> Dorman gets 20 on the biology bonus.
  886. [14:05] <evilmonkey> Sameer jerks up in recognition on art, but settles down; Tabitha and Meghan stare intently at Max, and Meghan rings in incorrectly.  Sameer gets it at the end.
  887. [14:05] <mib_mkscra> are live stats being kept for this event
  888. [14:06] <evilmonkey> Bellarmine only gets 10 on the law bonus.
  889. [14:07] <evilmonkey> Dorman picks up the tossup, and gets 10 on lit for the bonus.
  890. [14:08] <evilmonkey> Madhav, sporting a purple bowtie, looks away from Schindler, with a concerned look on his face.  Sameer picks up the tossup, and on the political science bonus, the entire Bellarmine team chimes in on the way to 20 points.
  891. [14:10] <evilmonkey> Tabitha quickly depresses the buzzer, thinks for a second, and is wrong; and Sameer, the most animated member of this Bellarmine crew, cleans it up.
  892. [14:10] <evilmonkey> and gets 10 on that bonus.  This Bellarmine crew is notably sedate compared to previous incarnations.

  894. [14:12] <evilmonkey> Tabitha gets an early buzz, and sets up, smiling; she and meghan work together to earn 20 on the american history.
  895. [14:13] <evilmonkey> Madhav and Sameer race early on myth, and Sameer jumps back as if shocked.  But it is Madhav who has buzzed first, and Dorman gains control of a bonus.  They 20 that current events/trash bonus.
  896. [14:14] <evilmonkey> Sameer gets the fine arts tossup; hearing the lines in the bonus intro, he holds out his hand, agonizing over where he has heard it; he recalls, and easily 30s the bonus.
  897. [14:15] <evilmonkey> Tossup 10 is chemistry; the smallish Bellarmine dude on the end nearest me lacks a nametag, but gets the tossup; the religion bonus is then 30'd after some disagreement.
  898. [14:16] <HeyTanay> that would be either Abhishek or Shreyan
  899. [14:16] <evilmonkey> At the half, Bellarmine leads 175-100.  Hiep is substituted for Abhishek.
  900. [14:16] <evilmonkey> It was Shreyan.

  905. [14:19] <evilmonkey> Dorman 0s.  Tossup on religion, gotten by Tabitha.  Bonus on Euro history, which Tabitha is able to 20.
  906. [14:21] <evilmonkey> everyone is staring intently at Max. Sameer, sits up suddenly, then drops his weight to buzz on the lit.  He is correct, and they are able to 20 the literature bonus.

  908. [14:22] <evilmonkey> Dorman is unable to figure out what Max wants on the tossup; at the end, Hiep buzzes, but he cannot figure it out either.
  909. [14:22] <waddle2357> Is Max Schindler reading?
  910. [14:23] <Itamar> yup
  911. [14:24] <evilmonkey> Tabitha sits up, and flicks the buzzer, but realizes she's in the wrong place; she almost recovers, but cannot pull the answer. The 5th member of Bellarmine (the one who hasn't yet been named) picks it up at the end.  On the art bonus, Bellarmine 20s. 235-130 Bellarmine, with 5 to go.
  912. [14:24] <evilmonkey> Schindler is reading.
  913. [14:25] <HeyTanay> Ved?
  914. [14:25] <HeyTanay> (is probably the fifth member)
  915. [14:25] <evilmonkey> Meghan and Sameer race on the lit, and Meghan wins the race, but is incorrect.  Sameer lifts his buzzer and points to it, indicating he will buzz in at the end.  Sameer gets it, put his hand on the back of his neck as Bellarmine 20s.
  916. [14:25] <evilmonkey> Yes, Ved.
  917. [14:26] <evilmonkey> I realize now that he actually still possesses his nametag.

  923. [14:27] <evilmonkey> Madhav get the biology bonus; he twirls his pen as he answers part of the chemistry calmly, but can only manage 10.  He leans to the side and puts two fingers on his forehead.
  924. [14:28] <evilmonkey> On the literature tossup that follows, 8 player shift onto their buzzers, and Tabitha gets there first; Dorman can only 10 their bonus.
  925. [14:30] <evilmonkey> Brian, Shreyan, and Ved all anxiously tap their feet; Sameer negs the music, and Meghan calmly answers at the end.  The bonus is also music, and they can only 10.
  926. [14:30] <evilmonkey> 260-185
  927. [14:30] <evilmonkey> entering tossup 20
  928. [14:32] <evilmonkey> Ved sets up, smiles, and gives the correct answer to the psychology tossup; Bellarmine smile and groan as the miss the easy first part. No further luck on the other parts.  Bellarmine 270, Dorman 185.

  935. [14:41] <evilmonkey> sorry, it was LASA C and DCC that we were waiting on; 305-130 DCC wins.
  936. [14:42] <evilmonkey> I'm facing the well-dressed St. John's crew of Deven, Carlo, Claire, and George.
  937. [14:43] <stats> wait i thought carlo had a hoodie
  938. [14:43] <evilmonkey> Max faces away from me in his hoodie and sweats, leg propped up on the chair of his non-existent teammate
  939. [14:44] <evilmonkey> Carlo has apparently ditched the hoodie.  Matt Nance is our moderator; some snippet of unknown conversation Max Schindler: "Carlo is my steed"
  940. [14:44] <evilmonkey> Claire, who has lost her nametag, has now become Brandon of DCC
  941. [14:45] <evilmonkey> all of St. John's prepares to take down notes as Matt begins tossup 1.
  942. [14:45] <evilmonkey> Max decides the tossup has lasted long enough, and ends it; he then proceeds to 20 the lit bonus.
  943. [14:46] <evilmonkey> He leans forward listening to the science; St. John's seems not to know what is going on, and Max again buzzes in correctly.
  944. [14:47] <evilmonkey> Max impulsively gives the wrong answer, and tries unsuccessfully to plead that he was conferring to his teammate.  He ends up 0ing the bonus.
  945. [14:48] <evilmonkey> George clenches his buzzer, seeming like he will ring in on the history; but it is his seemingly disinterested teammate Claire who actually picks it up.
  946. [14:50] <evilmonkey> 10 points on the bonus.  Max is leaning completely over, fatigued, but jumps up suddenly at a familiar name.  Carlo and Claire are each taking notes furiously, and Carlo negs; Max finally gets it at the end.  He swivels in his chair and sips his water as he 10s the literature bonus.
  947. [14:52] <evilmonkey> Another tossup goes to Max, this time on music.  He leans back, and has turned his chair so he is now almost facing me, as he only managed 10 on a difficult history bonus.

  956. [14:56] <evilmonkey> History - neither Carlo nor Claire show any sign of recognition by the time Max buzzes in with the answer.  Carlo fiddles with his pencil, and Claire plays with her hair as Max 20s the bonus.
  957. [14:57] <evilmonkey> Max lays his head over the back of his chair.  Claire leans forward, and gives an answer, almost asking a question of the moderator.  She is correct, and the lit garners St. John's 20.

  960. [14:59] <evilmonkey> Found tossup 10 - astronomy; Max gets it, then notes how he figured it out, as well as noting other possible answers.  He places his hands on his head for the first two parts, then jots down his notes in an attempt to learn more things about history
  961. [15:00] <evilmonkey> he 20s.  At the half 170-45, Schindler leads St. John's

  963. [15:02] <evilmonkey> Halftime ends.  Claire and George sit up, reinvigorated by the brief break, though George is distracted by a flashing light.  Max has now sat all the way forward, listening to a literature tossup, but Carlo gets it, despite the moderator stumbling over the many missing words.  Max sinks back into his chair, but St. John's cannot capitalize, gaining only 10.

  965. [15:04] <evilmonkey> George has sat up, buzzes in on the lit, and is prompted, but goes in the wrong direction and is negged.  Claire says something to him, which he waves off; he is aware he has missed it.  Max picks it up, and 10s religion.
  966. [15:05] <evilmonkey> Max has taken to writing notes and swiveling in his chair to keep himself engaged; it helps, and he picks up 10 on the history.
  967. [15:06] <evilmonkey> He cuts the moderator off to 20 a bio bonus.

  969. [15:08] <evilmonkey> Carlo buzzes in on biology, and is wrong.  He exhales, smiles, and becomes interested in his pencil and Max picks it up on a really easy giveaway.  George has resumed his slouched posture, and Claire rests her head on her hand, as Max 10s the bonus.
  970. [15:09] <evilmonkey> A religion tossup in disguise has Carlo pondering and running his finger over the buzzer, but Claire is the one who is able to get the tossup.  On a history bonus, St. John's is able to get 20.
  971. [15:10] <evilmonkey> History, this time a tossup, and Claire (who has been listening intently) answers quite early.  Math, one of the strengths of this St. John's team, sees snickering between Carlo and Deven as they 30
  972. [15:11] <evilmonkey> Going into Tossup 17, the score is 125-240, Max comfortably in the lead.

  975. [15:12] <evilmonkey> With 3 to go, Schindler has locked up this game.  Carlo gets the music tossup, but a hint of disappointment can be heard in his voice.
  976. [15:13] <evilmonkey> Max accidentally buzzes in the middle of the St. John's bonus; Claire gives an answer to get 10 on the bonus.
  977. [15:14] <evilmonkey> Physics! George gives a guess, as does Max, but neither can get it.
  978. [15:15] <evilmonkey> Tossup 20 see history;
  979. [15:16] <evilmonkey> we'll be heading to Romero's room next, to watch Schindler, newly crowned team to beat in this group, against Hunter

  983. [15:18] <evilmonkey> I realize it a step down from Henry, but I'm trying my best

  997. [15:25] <evilmonkey> Romero has confiscated my schedule, and is taking a photo so he has a schedule. Willie returns, tossup 1

  1000. [15:29] <evilmonkey> Common link tossup goes to max.  He listens to the history bonuses, but his guess is mentioned in the clues.  He
  1001. [15:30] <evilmonkey> Zihan and then willie begin gesticulating wildly, grasping at the architect described, but his name eludes them, and Max beats them to the tossup

  1004. [15:32] <evilmonkey> The tossup goes fairly long before Willie can ring in and end it mercifully; Hunter 20s their bonus on lit.
  1005. [15:34] <evilmonkey> Music makes to the words for ten points before Willie buzzes in; "oh!" escapes Max's mouth as he realizes why Willie has buzzed, though Willie is unsure of himself, letting the answer out tentatively.  He is right, but Hunter can manage only a 10 on the bonus.
  1006. [15:35] <evilmonkey> Literature - Max buzzes in, groans as he believes he has forgotten, but gives the correct response.  Mythology sees him plunge his face into his hands, but he 20s

  1015. [15:40] <evilmonkey> Tossup 9 is literature.  Zihan mouths "what?" right off the bat, and Max gets the tossup.  After getting the first two parts of a lit bonus with ease, he hits himself repeatedly on the head for half the question, plus 4.5 seconds, before pulling the 3rd part for an impressive 30. "you gotta do it" he says.

  1018. [15:42] <evilmonkey> On tossup 10, Max utilizes simple math to name one war that actually was as long as the name implies.  10 points on physics.  At the half Max 120, Hunter 130.
  1019. [15:43] <evilmonkey> After I double-check the score, Hunter asks if I'm live-blogging.  After I affirm, they say "whoa" in unison.  Willie gives a thumbs up, Wilton asks the location.  After learning it is still on the IRC, he says "that sucks".
  1020. [15:44] <evilmonkey> Religious thought sees Max neg after the first giveaway clue; subsequent parts of the giveaway make the answer
  1021. painfully obvious.
  1022. [15:44] <evilmonkey> Hunter picks that up, and then 20s the bonus.
  1023. [15:45] <evilmonkey> Another math tossup, and willie and zihan start laughing quietly.  Marianna sits back, smiling, and wilton finally gets it after a small difficulty cliff.
  1024. [15:46] <evilmonkey> 20 on the bonus.  Literature, Zihan starts snapping with his buzzer hand, thinking, and on the third snap buzzes with the answer.

  1027. [15:48] <evilmonkey> Sorry, Rice Visitor briefly kicked me off
  1028. [15:49] <evilmonkey> Zihan accidentally singularizes an authors name, giving an easy pickup for Max at the end.  He leans back in his chair, as he 10s.
  1029. [15:50] <evilmonkey> Physics tossup, and Max is still leaning back, but his eyes are wide trying to understand the tossup.  Eventually, a clue shared with SCT pops up, and the answer that went dead yesterday is gotten today. 10 on the history bonus.
  1030. [15:51] <evilmonkey> going into tossup 16, 235-135, Hunter in control.
  1031. [15:52] <evilmonkey> Marianna gets the history tossup, and we're on to our 3rd math related question of the round
  1032. [15:53] <evilmonkey> well; it started out with math, but veered much more into philo and SS; and Hunter can merely 10.
  1033. [15:54] <evilmonkey> The philosophy tossup sparks Zihan to buzz very early, but he is wrong.  He shakes the buzzer limply, trying to figure where he went wrong, and Marianna chuckles as she figures it out.  From about halfway through, Max has the buzzer up, but waits til the end to get the tossup.  He 20s the bonus on music.
  1034. [15:54] <evilmonkey> 255-165 going in to tossup 18
  1035. [15:55] <evilmonkey> Literature, and Marianna and Max are both chomping at the bit.  Max gets it, and then 20s the literature bonus.  255-195.

  1038. [15:57] <evilmonkey> Mythology, and Willie negs.  Hunter is disheartened, realizing Max will almost certainly pick it up.  He does, and listens intently to the earth science bonus that follows.  He says a bunch of words, and gets the first part right.
  1039. [15:58] <evilmonkey> He misses the second part, and then nails the easy part.
  1040. [15:58] <evilmonkey> 245-225 entering the final question.
  1041. [15:58] <evilmonkey> Zihan leans back and looks up.
  1042. [15:58] <evilmonkey> Max gasps, and gesticulates, holding out his buzzer.
  1043. [15:59] <evilmonkey> Zihan clenches his fist, and wilton has his hand over his mouth, looking over at zihan.
  1044. [15:59] <evilmonkey> the question goes on, and on.
  1045. [15:59] <evilmonkey> after "For 10 points", Max buzzes in.
  1046. [15:59] <evilmonkey> He is prompted, and is corrected.
  1047. [15:59] <evilmonkey> correct.
  1048. [15:59] <HeyTanay> !

  1101. [16:32] <mib_mkscra> thanks
  1102. [16:34] <evilmonkey> consistent with the rest of the country, stats indicate that these questions are fairly difficult
  1103. [16:35] <sinan> is it just the bonuses or are the tossups harder too?
  1104. [16:36] <evilmonkey> I mean, as someone who is "bad" at quizbowl, the tossups seem to be going far longer for the good teams than they did last year.
  1105. [16:38] <mib_mkscra> for comparison to last year

  1134. [17:01] <evilmonkey> Music is the next tossup, and Max gets it.  He brings his buzzer to his face, and looks skyward as the first two parts of an econ bonus fall dead, but manages to scrape 10 off the third part.
  1135. [17:02] <evilmonkey> History goes to LASA B.  Ben taps his face and flicks his ear as they 20 a lit bonus.  
  1136. [17:03] <evilmonkey> Alex, who yet to answer, is wearing shorts, indicative of the warm Texas weather.  He then buzzes and gets the lit, and are rewarded with a relatively easy philosophy bonus.
  1137. [17:03] <evilmonkey> but stumble on the final part, earning only 20

  1139. [17:06] <evilmonkey> A philosophy tossup that seems a bit easy for Regionals; Max still manages to neg it, and a couple of seconds after the end Ethan decides to buzz in and say the answer.
  1140. [17:06] <evilmonkey> The bonus comes and goes, with more answer lines WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS
  1141. [17:06] <Itamar> what are you doing max
  1142. [17:07] <evilmonkey> Trash goes to the end of the question before Arnav picks it up.  It has nothing to do with the topic of the back chalkboard, Battle Toads.
  1143. [17:09] <evilmonkey> LASA B is able only to get 10 on the bonus.  On tossup 10, a history tossup goes to LASA B, who then comments about how their packet had every other question written in a different font.
  1144. [17:09] <evilmonkey> at the half Max has 55, LASA B 170
  1145. [17:09] <Itamar> ouch
  1146. [17:11] <evilmonkey> Tossup 11 is pretty difficult history; after Alex's guess is wrong, Max can do nothing but offer "Smith"
  1147. [17:12] <evilmonkey> Tossup 12 has gone on way to long for Max, who buzzes in "alright", takes a full 5 seconds, and then gets the religious figure; he then 20s the bonus.
  1148. [17:12] <evilmonkey> stats are updated; as mentioned, they can be found here:
  1149. [17:12] <evilmonkey> http://people.tamu.edu/~seamus/tournament_standings.html
  1150. [17:13] <evilmonkey> Max gets the mythology bonus; the content of the bonus amuses Max, who rests his hands in his hair, but he is only able to get 10
  1151. [17:14] <evilmonkey> 105-170 after 13
  1152. [17:15] <evilmonkey> after being given "doubly-eponymous", Max buzzes with in with a single physicist; when prompted, he seems like he'll fail, but at the last second pulls the answer
  1153. [17:15] <evilmonkey> he then 10s a bonus on american history
  1154. [17:17] <evilmonkey> Literature goes all the way to the end, when Max outbuzzes Alex for the tossup; Alex goes to slam his buzzer, but thinks better of it, and sets it down gently

  1156. [17:17] <evilmonkey> 155-170 after 15, and Max Schindler has climbed all the way back into the game

  1158. [17:19] <evilmonkey> Ben twists the buzzer cord around his hand, seemingly uninterested, in sharp contrast to Schindler, who has both fingers hovering over the bonus.  Hard film goes dead without even an offering from Max though.  He comes back by first-lining myth, 10ing the bonus to take the lead with 4 to go.

  1160. [17:20] <evilmonkey> I appreciate all the math at this tournament; so does Max, apparently, as he gets the tossup; he 20s physics, but he seems unstoppable at this point
  1161. [17:20] <evilmonkey> 205-170
  1162. [17:22] <evilmonkey> Art goes all the way, and after the giveaway, everyone drops buzzers.
  1163. [17:22] <evilmonkey> Max calls timeout - 35 pt difference with 1 question to go
  1164. [17:22] <evilmonkey> he paces around the room for 15 seconds, sits down, tells LASA B "you guys got this".
  1165. [17:23] <evilmonkey> Max buzzes - correct! and the he gets 10 on the bonus, failing at "do you remember this from SCT" bowl
  1166. [17:23] <evilmonkey> 225-170, Schindler remains undefeated.
  1167. [17:23] <Itamar> nice

  1181. [18:05] <ndesai> is there a liveblog happening in here
  1182. [18:05] <evilmonkey> I have been liveblogging
  1183. [18:05] <evilmonkey> but stopped last round to relieve a reader
  1184. [18:06] <ndesai> i hear sameer actually showed up?
  1185. [18:06] <evilmonkey> Sameer is in fact here
  1186. [18:06] <HeyTanay> yeah, he just couldn't play the SCT event
  1187. [18:06] <evilmonkey> he's always been here
  1188. [18:06] <ndesai> ah, fascinating
  1189. [18:06] <ndesai> do we have staats
  1190. [18:06] <HeyTanay> http://people.tamu.edu/~seamus/tournament_standings.html
  1191. [18:06] <evilmonkey> Northmont's one-man team apparently is now sick, and has gone back to the hotel
  1192. [18:07] <ndesai> bonus conversion capping off at 17 ppb, interesting
  1193. [18:07] <HeyTanay> yeah, it seems agreed that this is a harder Regionals set than most
  1194. [18:07] <ndesai> ankit told me this year's acfreg is harder than ever
  1195. [18:08] <evilmonkey> A&M was leading Bellarmine after 4 tossups, causing their coach to leave the room
  1196. [18:08] <evilmonkey> Bellarmine negged those first 4
  1197. [18:08] <HeyTanay> haha
  1198. [18:09] <evilmonkey> however, the rest of the round went true to form, and Bellarmine won 270-60

  1200. [18:22] <evilmonkey> one more round before dinner
  1201. [18:23] <evilmonkey> I'm going to find Rice A - Bellarmine
  1202. [18:24] <Itamar> okay
  1203. [18:24] <evilmonkey> Its apparently bonus 3, and Bellarmine controls a film bonus
  1204. [18:25] <evilmonkey> They get 10, and lead 110-0
  1205. [18:25] <evilmonkey> Philosophy; Bellarmine sits motionless as Victor bobs in his chair
  1206. [18:26] <evilmonkey> all vie for the tossup, and victor wins the race, but negs; Sameer cleans it up at the end.
  1207. [18:26] <evilmonkey> biology, with Abhishek and Sameer collaborating
  1208. [18:27] <evilmonkey> they get 10.  Henry and Victor are scribbling notes less than furiously, and Victor reclines. Ved and Sameer's buzzers at the ready, Sameer gets the tossup.
  1209. [18:28] <evilmonkey> upon here the bonus, Sameer forms an "o" with his mouth and utters the, and holds his buzzer out as he pulls the answer.  Bellarmine 20s the bonus
  1210. [18:28] <Itamar> what tossup was that?
  1211. [18:28] <evilmonkey> tossup 5
  1212. [18:29] <evilmonkey> and hear, not here, of course
  1213. [18:29] <evilmonkey> Sameer gets tossup 6 on astronomy
  1214. [18:29] <evilmonkey> something geosciency, and Bellarmine gets 20
  1215. [18:30] <evilmonkey> ah, my bad, Rice led 110-0 after 3
  1216. [18:30] <evilmonkey> and Bellarmine controlled bonus 4
  1217. [18:30] <evilmonkey> so it is now 110-95, Rice A

  1219. [18:30] <evilmonkey> sorry for the confusion
  1220. [18:30] <Itamar> oh okay, I was about to say
  1221. [18:31] <evilmonkey> Rice gets the trash, from Victor; listening to a history bonus, a red sweater clad henry's eyes reflect a man who knows things.  He twenty's that bonus.
  1222. [18:44] <evilmonkey> Tossup 16, 5 to go.  Sameer and Henry, buzzers at ready.  Henry cocks his hand, but Sameer buzzes first.  Correct on the history, and they are awarded a social science bonus.
  1223. [18:45] * mib_152oh1 (Mibbit@cloak-34A5D9C2.pools.spcsdns.net) Quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
  1224. [18:45] <evilmonkey> Philosophy, rather, they 10
  1225. [18:46] <evilmonkey> Tossup 17; Rice leads 240-160
  1226. [18:47] <evilmonkey> Biology.  It goes to the end, and Henry seems unconcerned.  Another tossup for Victor, and another bonus controlled Rice.  Biology again.  Easy 10, and two fairly difficult parts that Rice cannot answer.
  1227. [18:47] <evilmonkey> 260-160 with 3 to go.
  1228. [18:47] <evilmonkey> Score-check
  1229. [18:48] <evilmonkey> the score posted previously is correct; Victor negs on a wild guess
  1230. [18:49] <evilmonkey> Sameer picks up a tossup that is quite easy at the end.
  1231. [18:49] <evilmonkey> and they 20 religion
  1232. [18:50] <evilmonkey> Hiep has apparently not silenced his phone, and it rings again
  1233. [18:50] <evilmonkey> 260-190
  1234. [18:50] <Itamar> they need some great bonuses
  1235. [18:51] <evilmonkey> and the game slips away from Rice, who gets the lit tossup, and Henry's eyes light up at the bonus topic
  1236. [18:51] <evilmonkey> they manage to 20, with a pretty hard 3rd part preventing the 30
  1237. [18:52] <evilmonkey> Last tossup is negged by Henry, and Sameer picks it up
  1238. [18:53] <evilmonkey> and the bonuses wouldn't have been great, as said bonuses didn't exist in this packet
  1239. [18:53] <evilmonkey> as in, they packet had 18 bonuses
  1240. [18:54] <Itamar> say what
  1241. [18:56] <evilmonkey> there are some issues with the packet set.
  1242. [18:57] <Itamar> huh

  1268. [19:50] <evilmonkey> Steven Fontenot will be reading
  1269. [19:51] <evilmonkey> I'll keep it to categories, Susan
  1270. [19:51] <susan> okay, thank you.
  1271. [19:52] <evilmonkey> Steve is explaining what is happening; later tonight, the winner will be playing the top 4 teams from the other pool, the loser, the bottom 4 teams
  1272. [19:52] <evilmonkey> Tossup 1, myth.  All the DCC players are hunched over their desks
  1273. [19:53] <evilmonkey> Zihan looks down in thought; upon hearing some more familiar clues, every looks up from the floor.  Collin wins the race, and DCC gets the bonus.
  1274. [19:54] <evilmonkey> DCC maintains their pose as they listen to lit, and 30 the bonus.
  1275. [19:54] <evilmonkey> They do not relax as we begin tossup 2
  1276. [19:55] <evilmonkey> for hunter, Marianna and Wilton strike more relaxed poses, and Wilton gets the history tossup.
  1277. [19:55] <evilmonkey> even in a bonus they do not control, DCC has not relaxed, and Collin is using the opportunity to take in more caffiene.
  1278. [19:56] <evilmonkey> Hunter 20s the bonus, also history.
  1279. [19:56] * RminusQ (~chatzilla@cloak-A627B7F2.dyn.optonline.net) has joined #TexasInvitational
  1280. [19:57] <evilmonkey> 3rd tossup is literature.  Zihan puts a hand over his face, and Collin and brandon also cover their mouths.  Nameless DCC dude buzzes incorrectly at the end, and Marianna gets it for hunter.
  1281. [19:57] <evilmonkey> Mythology Bonus, and hunter 20s
  1282. [19:58] <evilmonkey> The DCC players are on the edge of their seats as they listen to the art tossup.
  1283. [19:59] <evilmonkey> and, after the "For Ten Points", DCC gets the tossup.  Social Science is their bonus - 10 on the bonus.
  1284. [20:01] <evilmonkey> Willie ceases twirling his pen.  Where DCC is inching ever closer to the moderator, Hunter seems to relax with each tossup.  Marianna negs, despite being on the right track, and DCC picks it up.
  1285. [20:02] <evilmonkey> The music bonus is 20d. Tossup 5 is buzzer raced in the room, and Willie fist bumps Marianna after he picks up the bio.
  1286. [20:03] <evilmonkey> Hunter manages only to 10 the bonus.
  1287. [20:04] <evilmonkey> DCC realizes the subject of the history tossup, and his answer makes sense to all others.  They 10 the bonus.
  1288. [20:06] <evilmonkey> History tossup is buzzed early by Collin and Zihan.  Collin seems aghast at the answer, but he is negged.  He lodges a protest
  1289. [20:07] <evilmonkey> Marianna looks over at Willie sheet; and DCC protests not only the question, but that their opponent was conferring.  Fontenot has gone to call Kwartler, who is more familiar with ACF rules.
  1290. [20:09] <evilmonkey> they are going to continue until the half, read the bonus for hunter, and have further consultations at the half.
  1291. [20:09] <susan> Substantive conferring refers to verbal, written or analogous communication among team members that can convey information pertinent to what the possible answer to the question is. Any instance of illegal conferring will be treated as a wrong answer; it will disqualify the conferring team from that tossup, and it will earn a neg-five if the other team has not already buzzed incorrectly and...
  1292. [20:09] <susan> ...the question was not complete.
  1293. [20:09] <susan> fyi

  1296. [20:09] <evilmonkey> The science bonus is unknown to all members of hunter, and their pencils work across the paper as a result.
  1297. [20:10] <evilmonkey> Thank you susan; I will convey that information at the half.
  1298. [20:10] <evilmonkey> The music tossup is negged by Willie, who seems disappointed in himself.
  1299. [20:11] <evilmonkey> DCC picks it up; Collin knows generally what he should answer for the history bonus, but DCC is unable to pull the name.  They 10 that bonus.
  1300. [20:13] <evilmonkey> A physics tossup agitates Wilton, but it is Brandon who gets it.  As the fine arts bonus is read, Wilton purses his lips, clearly not enthused.
  1301. [20:13] <evilmonkey> We have reached the half.  If everything stands, DCC 145, Hunter 90.

  1304. [20:17] <evilmonkey> Okay; the situation is conveyed; should it matter, the protests will be addressed.  Marianna of Hunter gets Tossup 11

  1306. [20:18] <evilmonkey> A literature bonus sees Willie continue his pen twirling, and Marianna clicking her pen.  They earn but 10 points.
  1307. [20:18] <MattBo> hold on
  1308. [20:18] <MattBo> is conferring a thing that can be protested
  1309. [20:18] <MattBo> because I'm pretty sure that's moderator discretion and therefore unprotestable
  1310. [20:19] <evilmonkey> and we lost power!
  1311. [20:19] <evilmonkey> oh, just lost lights because of lack of motion
  1312. [20:20] <evilmonkey> 20 points on the bonus for DCC, whose fine arts knowledge earned them points on the last tossup
  1313. [20:20] <RminusQ> i believe so, matt, though i'm not a rules expert. that seems very discretiony to me.
  1314. [20:20] <MattBo> ok, yeah
  1315. [20:21] <MattBo> it's not at all protestable
  1316. [20:21] <evilmonkey> it wasn't a protest, per se; Fontenot had also noted the action in question, but wanted to double-check whether the action should have been called as conferring.
  1317. [20:21] <MattBo> "5. Nothing else is protestable, including but not limited to: judgment calls of any kind such as calling time, whether a tossup had begun before an accidental buzz as described in E.11, whether verbal conferring occurred, or the failure of the question to require a prompt on an opposing team’s answer."
  1318. [20:21] <MattBo> what?
  1319. [20:21] <MattBo> that's absurd, but whatever.
  1320. [20:21] <evilmonkey> it was independent of DCC pointing it out.
  1321. [20:21] <susan> oddly, the rules point out only that verbal conferring is not protestable
  1322. [20:21] <MattBo> right (though it says "not limited to")
  1323. [20:22] <evilmonkey> Hunter got the tossup, and Wilton can only pull one part of the science bonus.
  1324. [20:22] <MattBo> fontenot should have just marked Hunter wrong but whatever
  1325. [20:22] <evilmonkey> Physics tossup - Wilton's buzz causes Brandon to jump, and he gets it.
  1326. [20:23] <evilmonkey> Its unclear, Matt; they've asked me not to speculate about what the resolution is.  But there is good reason for it to be in question.
  1327. [20:23] <evilmonkey> DCC gets the next tossup
  1328. [20:24] <MattBo> arrrgh
  1329. [20:24] <MattBo> there's no way to resolve that fairly
  1330. [20:25] <evilmonkey> Thankfully, I'm the only person in the room who has any connection to either team in the room, and that only in the form of being pounded repeatedly in high school by DCC.
  1331. [20:25] <evilmonkey> DCC 20s the bonus, and Mark of DCC stops leaning over his desk to answer a lit tossup.
  1332. [20:26] <evilmonkey> 10 on the bonus for DCC; Collin is a bit miffed at himself for missing the part
  1333. [20:27] <evilmonkey> the back legs of brandon's chair are the ground as he rocks forward, but it is Paul who gets the art.
  1334. [20:28] <evilmonkey> 20 for DCC on the bonus; 255-140, DCC, with 3 questions to go
  1335. [20:28] <evilmonkey> it seems unlikely that the ruling will matter at all
  1336. [20:29] <evilmonkey> DCC gets the next tossup, and it appears that Hunter will be relegated to the bottom bracket
  1337. [20:30] <evilmonkey> They 30 the bonus.  Paul has finally relaxed, and Mark follows, but Collin and Brandon, smelling blood, are ready to pounce
  1338. [20:31] <evilmonkey> and Brandon gets the tossup, on history; literature is the bonus category.  Collin states the obvious, trying to be helpful, and DCC can't get the third part.  However, they 20
  1339. [20:33] <evilmonkey> Math tossup is answered by Wilton, but it is too little, too late; DCC will win, 325 to 150.
