Re: Friday, June 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a finish! Considering yesterday's game had nobody getting FJ! right, and the fact that the game was extremely close, it could have been anybody's game at that point. However, like in sports, there's a difference in improvement to playing the same people twice. The first time, there's usually a ...

Re: Friday, May 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am stunned that final Jeopardy was a triple stumper. I think all the FJ's were rather easy this week. What had me stumped was the wagering in FJ this week. Even if you know you might not win the game, don't you want to wager everything to have as high a point total as possible to make it to the n...

Re: Monday, May 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ivory had it rough, right after missing 3 straight (Including the DD) to end the first round, and still had a difficult time getting any traction to keep up with both Peter and Amanda. Peter made his move once DJ! began, but couldn't keep up the pace with Amanda, and Ivory, much like how the first r...

Re: Tuesday, May 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sam put himself in a tight jam once DJ! began. Katie made her run and cut it close for Meggie early, but it wasn't enough for both Sam and Katie to bridge the gap. 4 of the 6 wrong answers Sam gave allowed Meggie to capitalize her lead, but after Meggie missed the 2nd DD, it left the door open to al...

Re: Wednesday, May 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oh wow...Jenna probably is regretting for not buzzing in on the last clue because by doing so, Will made this a runaway game and making him automatically a semifinalist. Will definitely didn't build a solid enough lead heading into DJ! and left the door open for Jenna to take the opportunity to get ...

Re: Thursday, May 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ouch. Those DDs were not fair to those three at all. Two missed on betting big, and one right on a small bet. Ben misreading the clue, and Mary Kate dealt with a rough clue were the reasons I said "Ouch". FJ! did look easy because of the last part mentioned. Surprised it was a solo get. I have no id...

Re: Friday, May 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was worried Anne would get FJ right and bet zero. I knew libraries are a fairly recent thing so narrowing it down to the right state was quick work. I am in a couple Facebook groups related to presidential history so that helped. I think the get rate for this one will be the lowest in the weekly ...

Re: Thursday, April 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now, I've heard so many of Shakespeare's plays that have been on FJ!, but I don't think I have heard of Coriolanus as one of his plays. Someone fill me in on this? The archive had no hits for Coriolanus in FJ! (well, except for today's game, as the search engine does pick up wrong answers.) There's...

Re: Thursday, April 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oh man...this game served as a giant wake-up call to be certain. Nibir was not fooled at all, especially with having to face the same person he faced in the quarterfinals (And was the victim to a runaway game). I don't think he wanted to face the same humiliation he suffered in the quarterfinals. Wh...

Re: Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Three words. What. Just. Happened? This was a headscratching game to be sure. I can't quite make heads or tails with what I just witnessed. Oh well, guess I'll probably put it into words with how this happened. Given how Nathaniel set the tone in the quarterfinals, I thought he would give us a repea...

Re: Tuesday, April 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow...nobody could have saw this coming. Finding a winner in this game was extremely difficult, given the way how those three played to get where they are in the semis. Nibir had to rely on FJ! in his quarterfinals to get the top wild card spot, Joe gambled the dice to win his quarterfinal match, an...

Re: Monday, April 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

*Does a Jan Brady impression* Beni, Beni, Beni! Given how dominant Tyler was in his quarterfinal, I thought that he was going to cruise in the semis no problem, especially since he made the game a runaway. Surprisingly, this battle wasn't quite as one-sided than one would have thought. While it's tr...

Re: Thursday, April 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, given the way things went, Joe was definitely, like a quote from the movie The Blues Brothers, on a mission from God. After seeing the first three quarterfinals go the way of the sophomores, he was probably thinking 'Okay...I have to seriously end this streak right now.' and definitely came i...

Re: 2020 College Championship Wild Cards (Final results posted)

Emma can sleep better knowing that if she had stood pat at 12,200, she still would’ve been edged out for the wild-card slot. Interesting that the four wildcard winners all got their FJ’s right, and the other 6 got FJ wrong. Does it usually break that cleanly? That's a good question. It just depends...

Right answer total: 1) Tyler Combs (Indiana) 29 R 2) Nathaniel Miller (Yale) 27 R 3) Londyn Lorenz (Florida) 26 R On no. 3, wrong name ot wrong school? I'm going with wrong everything. The Archive has Londyn with 25R (Kayla from UF had 19R). It also shows Nathaniel with 26R. Fixed...at least...I th...

Well, given the results, here's the stats on how they stack on the top 3: Buzzer percentage: 1) Tyler Combs (Indiana) 47.37% 1) Londyn Lorenz (Ole Miss) 47.37% 3) Beni Keown (Northwestern) 43.86% DD Net Earn: 1) Joe Coker (Hendrix College) [1/1 - $5,000] 2) Tyler Combs (Indiana) [1/1 - $3,400] 3) Ma...

Re: Friday, April 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow...I have so much to say about this quarterfinals, but let's start with the elephant in the room. The upperclassmen finished strong over the course of the last two games. These semifinal matchups will be HUGE!!! Looking at the list, we're seeing 1 senior, 1 junior, 1 freshman, and 6 (Yes! It's no...

I'll be the first to say this, but I like Beni's hairstyle. Of all the College Championship contenders from 2010 to now, he's definitely got the best looking hair out of anybody from the 2000s. Well, given the way things went, Joe was definitely, like a quote from the movie The Blues Brothers, on a ...

Dammit...Mark beat me to it. And that's even before I logged on. Well, he's got two things right. 3-for-3 for the underclassmen winning, and 0-and-4 for the upperclassmen losing. Is it just me, or have the underclassmen been brighter than usual in this year's college championship? I feel bad for Ali...

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I mentally facepalmed when the player from Princeton either missed or ignored every clue directly or peripherally related to Princeton and the Ivy League. And when the sophomore from Texas didn't get the one about sophomores, or Texas. I thought the sophomore did get the question about sophomores. ...
