If you click on the youtube video and go to 2:44, you will see a quiz bowl team that the vlogbrothers are sponsoring from Ohio. Does anyone recognize them? I was just curious.

Yes, I watch vlogbrothers. No, I'm not embarrassed.

It could be Milford. I looked them up and red is one of their colors and they use the block "M" as the logo on their website. Not sure why I remembered them, but I know I coached against them at least once down at Turpin way back in the day.

Could it be Minford High School? Apparently they have a team, and even posted on their accomplishments in 2017.

I am sure it isn't Minford, because they roll 20 deep and I know their coach pretty well. That was a good guess though. They have been one of the more active southern Ohio teams.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bob is correct. That would fit what we know. It is hard to search a team that goes by "academic team" because you get tons of junk that you aren't looking for. "Quiz bowl" searches much easier. I don't care how many "all academic teams" your athletic kids have made. I mean not in this context, anyway.

It's Mathews, from Vienna in Trumbull County.

I had a feeling Greg would know who that was. I was only 280 miles off.

Bob,

I prefer to think of it as you getting the ball rolling on the hard part of the bonus and then your team talked it out, instead of getting a neg 5 on a tossup.
