Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

cougar gets the heisman question (I actually missed detmer on the list and thought andre ware, the year before detmer, was the winner.)

2 pts for cougar.

steroid is docked 3PTS.

the 1 pointer is still up for grabs (except for steroid and cougar)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I'd like to suggest a small suggestion to the thunderdome.

The loser gets negative points if the list is correct (I think it's 25% of the total) How about if he can provide correct answers that weren't supplied, he can get back 1 pt for each correct answer. He can't end up in the positive though.

a wrong answer would mean losing 2x as many points

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

hey media, let me help you out with something: I make the rules. you just follow them. in fact, you know what? you're out of the game. I'll get a sub to replace you.


haha! (did you buy that even for a second?) that's a great idea. will start it with this thunderdome. my only tweak is that we wont do the double negative if the thunderdome loser gets one wrong. the shame of losing thunderdome and a handful of points is enough punishment.

so who's in? Dudd you still in? If we don't have a taker from C, we'll open it up to D too.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

steroid I docked you for throwing out answers to the other 2 diamond questions after you'd answered the 3pointer. (I had said in an earlier diamond batch that when multiple diamonds go up, you can only get one....did you not know that? If you dind't know it, I could reduce the sentence to a 1 or 2 point docking.)

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Where are the Thunderdomers? While we wait for two willing combatants, here's a new game:

Who Wants to Be a Schwabbonaire?

I'll throw out a "Fastest Finger" multiple choice question. First person to post the correct matches/order gets 1 point and gets to play.

Next there will be a max of 3 questions just for him: a 3-pointer, 6-pointer, 9-pointer. If he gets the first one right, he can choose to continue or take the points and run. If he gets either the 6 or 9 pointer wrong, he loses everything save for the 1 point from fastest finger.

He also gets one "Phone a Friend" where he can ask a teammate for help in the thread.

OK Flee, your 3-pt question is multiple choice:

Match the 4 movies in the fastest finger question with the main college in each film:

ESU
South Central Louisiana State University
Texas State
Western University

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

correct! here's the 6 pointer. you can elect to go for it, or take the 3 points and run like a sissy:

Name the team in each of the following movies:

Any Given Sunday
The Natural
Slap Shot

(Looking for the main team in each one. don't have to get the city, just the team name)
