I'll guess Lito Shepard but I doubt it's right.

1999 Vincent was tied for the league lead with a handful of other guys who had (a scant) 7 interceptions.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

here are the results from yesterday's question about the nba mvp's..the most points you could get was 33, which some guys did. the first guy on each team has his pionts doubled because of the head to head...for superbob, what I did was take the lowest score on his team and just double it. (it would've been too punitive to his team if I took the low score over all and cut it in half, seeing as he was in the head to head group).

I'll add in the bonus points and thunderdome pionts and post new standings soon.

Also, you'll see that the next head to head group, 3 guys all got 33 points. the tiebreaker will be whoever submitted first. that person will pick the category for the next group question.

Team A
steroid 66
truenorth 33
donga 20
mjw 30
willie 32




Team B
dudd 56
EMD 29
dkgo 25
msu 23
mediaPA 26


Team C
superbob 46
fleebrog 33
sixfour 23
tom1975 27
comp13 25


Team D
sarcastic 54
cards 33
zimmer 26
pwnsall 29
manupod 29

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

how did you score this? i missed dirk completely (put grant hill instead) and got nash's college wrong. which seems like it should be -4/29 (if dirk went to college), or -3/30 if he didn't. you gave me 32.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Here are the standings, taking into account all bonus points/thunderdome points to date:

Team A 197
Team D 167
Team B 161
Team C 154


A's got an early lead but it's still anybody's game. To paraphrase a legendary golfer: "The way I see it, we've only just begun."

bonus point for the first person to identify the golfer. and yes, i'll mix movies with sports from time to time for the bonuses

True North gets to pick the next category, in which the "2-hole hitters" will all have their points count double... But everyone still answers.

Next categories:

World Series Starting Lineups

or

NFL QB's


TrueNorth, you can ask your teammates if they have a preference. If I don't hear from you soon, I'll flip a coin.

right. you got 31 on the nba mvp's. 33 max score minus just the 2 for dirk (b/c he had no college point)....I accidentally had added your bonus point into that.

so team A has 198 total..thansk for being honest!

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Happy Gilmore is the golfer. Bonus point for compound 13.

And more honesty from willie as Team A's score ticks down to 197.

(everyone's encouraged to check their own scores, mostly to make sure I dont accidentally short change you...but I'll audit things from time to time too, of course. all running scores are subject to correction.)

No bonus points for Kobe - Lower Merion PA and Garnett - Chicago Farragut? I hear those schools have similar curriculum to Harvard or Yale.

Yeah, Flee's team took an unnecessary hit on that one. I say bring up a sub and fill in for SUB (kind of ironic). I'm sure there is someone else out there who would step in.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

are the scores cumulative?

seems like the 197 for A-team is just the nba MVP question plus steroid boy's 16 thunderdome pts plus my one bonus point. it doesn't include the giants question or the bonus points before the nba question.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Team C didn't lose out on the double points. To reiterate: I took the lowest C score (sixfour's 23) gave that to Super and doubled it to 46.

Cumulative Standings:

Team A 287
Team B 250
Team D 250
Team C 242


If SuperBob doesn't answer this next question, he'll be replaced.

Me no understand you.

btw - I had a History class with Brandon Jacobs at SIU and he was the largest manbeast I've ever seen in my life. I was frightened everytime he showed up to class. Luckily, he didn't show up very often.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

NEW QUESTION FOR EVERYONE TO ANSWER:


QUESTION 2: Jim Harbaugh led the Bears in passing for 4 seasons, from 90-93. Since then, ELEVEN different QB's have been the single-season passing leader for Da Bears.

2 points for each QB and 1 point for the college he graduated/was drafted from.
