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.
Great story! This belongs on Page 1.
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.”

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.
Congratulations to the U of M and Boo to HU!
