Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Do we need to include the year(s) they won or just a list of 12 players?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Do not need to include the year. Just a list of (up to) 12 players.

And please always send your PMs as a single spaced list. no number prefixes, ABC, etc....just format it like:

Name, college
Name, college
Name, college

(etc)

thanks

No penalty for incorrect guesses, right?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

I have a feeling that I'm going to be useless throughout this to my team.

Do all answers have a college affiliation?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Sorry team, I suck hard at all NBA related trivia. Will do my best, but was praying for the baseball one.

EDIT: Wow, I actually did a pretty sick job. I'm proud of myself.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Does each person on each team send answers? Or how does this work?

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

to clarify, if a player didn't attend an NCAA college, you dont need to guess which highschool he went to. you can, but there's no points to be earned from it.

Bonus: Name the last Detroit Tiger to win the American League MVP award.

remember, you only get a single post with a single guess for the diamond bonuses.

yes, for the regular "list" questions, everyone in the game submits their answers via PM. everyone's points will count toward the team total. and the 4 people in the "head to head" slot will have their points count double.

for bonus questions, you post answer ITT. first one with a correct ansewr gets 1 point.
