Who's Kyle Kallander? I jest, I jest. lol

Will the Quiz bowl be open to the public? And for PH... will there be food available?

Yes, it's open to the public, and the library has a nice food court--including pizza, wings, and hot dogs. 8)

Two years ago, Coastal was bragging that they couldn't wait to play LU because we weren't a "real school" and "wouldn't know any science." Our captain was a biochemistry major, and we beat them 445-65.

Our lone senior was out with strep throat, so we started one junior and the rest sophomores, none of whom went to nationals last year, so it was a whole new team this year. Nice to have our players' parents visiting from PA, OH, and even ND.
Speaking of winning bowls, how can Old Dominion University start football in 2009 and after only four years playing FCS football they had a 38-10 record. In 2013, they then move up to the FBS and joined Conference USA. We started football 43 years ago in 1973, we're still playing FCS and have gone to the playoffs only one time in 43 years and we play in the Big South Conference. We have more funds, better facilities and a national platform. Something needs to change.
Back on topic, the Faculty Quiz Bowl scrimmage is tomorrow, March 24, at 5:00. Four faculty with PhDs will be playing our varsity team in the library conference room.

VCU didn't make the tournament, so this team was one Clemson player plus our LU scorekeeper! And even that two-person team beat both Virginia Tech and Wake Forest! :clapping
