2009-2011 were golden years for the U of Mn quiz bowl teams, but do we're the late 80s and tht was when we had to learn trivia the old way - no Internet. I'd put Brian Weikle and Bruce Simmons against anyone.

The Harvard player, Andy Watkins, said in a prepared statement that “though I know everyone will make their own judgments, I did compete in good faith.” Sorry Andy, cheating does not equate good faith. I hope the teams from both years get a chance to celebrate their victory. Time for the U or Gov Dayton to step up and make it happen.

This story, on the heels of last year's major Harvard cheating scandal, and a lengthy NY Times article that revealed a decades-long culture of acceptance of cheating at Harvard, calls into question the legitimacy of the degrees "earned" by any Harvard graduate.
