TD 373 - Tourney Time (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Mon Mar 26, 2018 8:42 am

I'm back. Last fall, I was sure that the 13th TD I created would (rather appropriately) be the last one. At that point, I also was out of ideas for future themes and there were possibly some changes coming that would make it hard for me to devote enough time to hosting one of these anyway. However, since nothing has changed with my schedule yet, I have been "blessed" with ample free time to kick around a few new ideas. Whether any qualify as even half-baked remains to be determined - starting with this one.

It's March, which equals "Tourney Time" in college basketball and here is some background on the theme for this TD: In 1992, the Big 10 did not have a men's basketball conference tournament - at least until one was created late in that season for the entertainment of anyone reading the rec.sport.basketball.college message board. What was originally intended to be a "one-off" for fun turned into an annual tradition through 2011. These questions are related to various happenings during the 20 editions of this "extravaganza". And no, it's not expected that anybody entering this TD actually knows about this tournament but that also should not matter.

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) There will be a BONUS of (-4) for anyone who gives 12 correct answers and does not use a "drop" or "sheep"
5) Wrong responses are the higher of either +10 points or the "sheep" answer +3
6) All answers are due by 8 AM Central time on Tuesday, April 3, 2018
7) Submit answers via this Google form or PM.

Questions

1. 1992-93: The inaugural event was thrown together at the last minute and held at high school gyms in southeast Iowa - with Burlington based Sterzing's Potato Chips serving as corporate sponsor. A year later, Dubuque Hams put its name on the event as well and brought the championship game to the city which borders Wisconsin and Illinois. Both Burlington and Dubuque had a population of at least 25,000 as of the 2016 Census estimates. Name another city in Iowa with a population of 25,000 or more. [17 possible answers]

2. 1994: The event moved to espn2 and a format which would see all games played within 24 hours. Sportscasters also became a bigger part of the story - and would be integral through the remainder of the event's run. Given their last name + first initial and number of letters, name one of these female sportscasters. [Only the first name is necessary.]

Arrington (J -4)
Bernstein (B - 6)
Capuano (C - 4)
Dales (S - 6)
Guerrero (L - 4)
Hammond (I - 4)
Kolber (S - 4)
McKendry (C - 5)
Oliver (P - 3)
Stark (M - 7)
Zelasko (J - 6)

3. 1995: Because the NCAA still refused to offer the SPCDH Big 10 winner an automatic bid to their 64-team field, the conference's players announced a boycott and left schools to fill their rosters with replacements. Given the school plus number of letters in their names, identify one of these alums who actually took the court during the day. (Initials: JA, SA, CC, JG, FH, RH, SH, MJ, JL-D, DW, RW) [Give letter followed by answer.]

A. Illinois: Quarterback who was first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft (4,6)
B. Indiana: Free throw and 3-point specialist who was 1984 Olympian and later coached at Iowa, New Mexico and UCLA (5,6)
C. Iowa: Running back who dropped more balls than a hernia specialist at the 1986 Rose Bowl (6,6)
D. Michigan: Pitcher with one hand who threw a no-hitter with the Yankees (3,6)
E. Michigan State: Guard who led school to 1979 title, then Lakers to NBA crowns and now is in LA front office (5,7)
F. Minnesota: Multi-sport draftee who became MLB HOF and had go-ahead RBI in 1992 World Series clincher for Blue Jays (4,8)
G. Northwestern: Actress - SNL, Seinfeld, Veep (5,5-7)
H. Ohio State: Wide receiver who one coach claimed "only scores touchdowns" (4,6)
I. Penn State: Running back who made an "immaculate" catch as a pro player in the same state (6,6)
J. Purdue: Hall of Fame defensive back who spent most of his NFL career with the Steelers (3,7)
K. Wisconsin: Track star who was three time Olympian - running in the women's 800 and 1500 meter events but never medaling (4,8)

4. 1997: After a certain WWE figure paid off the NCAA to give the 1996 champ an automatic bid, he messed up the whole thing by trying to transfer that invitation from the actual winner to another conference team that was "on the bubble". The NCAA claimed the berth was a "non-transferrable privilege", so a year later there was no bid on the line. That same WWE figure also conveniently booked wrestling shows in arenas throughout the Midwest on 1997 tournament day - leaving the conference to play these games in outdoor venues. Years later, the NHL began holding regular season games outside. Given the stadium, name one of these cities to host an outdoor hockey game since 2008. [Only city name is necessary.]

Ralph Wilson Stadium
Wrigley Field
Fenway Park
Heinz Field
Citizens Bank Park
Michigan Stadium
Nationals Park
Levi's Stadium
TCF Bank Stadium
Coors Field
Busch Stadium

5. 1998: The event expanded to 48 hours of non-stop basketball and used a double elimination format. Give a letter of an NCAA Division I basketball school whose nickname starts with the same letter. (Examples: If the Quinnipiac Quail or Zanesville State Zoozaronis were a thing then you could answer "Q" or "Z". However, the Illinois "Fighting" Illini and Utah "Runnin" Utes (the name Utah uses for their men's basketball team) do not qualify. In other words, "I" and "U" are incorrect answers.) [13 possible answers]

6. 1999: In the middle of a three-year deal to conduct 48-hour events, a pool play format was used. Name any country besides the United States which is in the Top 10 in total Olympic swimming medals for men's or women's competition. [11 possible answers]

7. 2000: The format switched to "two-leg" quarterfinals and semifinals and a best-of-five championship round. Name any US president whose first or last name is 5 letters long. [15 possible answers]

8. 2002-2007: After the 2001 event was held in small arenas throughout Iowa, the conference signed a deal that would see games held in all 48 contiguous states by the end of the 2007 tournament. All of the following answers are cities that were hosts during those six years. [Only city name is necessary.]

Clarification, if I may ask -

On #5, what would you consider as the first letter of a school within a state system?

For example, I would imagine that UNC would start with N for North Carolina, as it's commonly known, but for something like UNC-Greensboro, does that start with a G or an N?

Yes, I would consider UNC to start with N for "North Carolina".

I would say that you just "drop the U" for schools such as UNC-Greensboro, UC-Irvine and consider them NC-Greensboro and Cal-Irvine.

Hope that helps.

If you don't mind my asking, where did you grow up? I would think there is only a small area where one would be familiar with Sterzing's and Kitchen Cooked, and it's not in Atlanta. :lol:

(Also, I agree wholeheartedly!)

3. 1995: Because the NCAA still refused to offer the SPCDH Big 10 winner an automatic bid to their 64-team field, the conference's players announced a boycott and left schools to fill their rosters with replacements. Given the school plus number of letters in their names, identify one of these alums who actually took the court during the day. (Initials: JA, SA, CC, JG, FH, RH, SH, MJ, JL-D, DW, RW) [Give letter followed by answer.]

A. Illinois: Quarterback who was first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft (4,6)
B. Indiana: Free throw and 3-point specialist who was 1984 Olympian and later coached at Iowa, New Mexico and UCLA (5,6)
C. Iowa: Running back who dropped more balls than a hernia specialist at the 1986 Rose Bowl (6,6)
D. Michigan: Pitcher with one hand who threw a no-hitter with the Yankees (3,6)
E. Michigan State: Guard who led school to 1979 title, then Lakers to NBA crowns and now is in LA front office (5,7)

Shocked that I'm in the lead (think this is a first ever!) but don't expect it to last. I guess it does help that I used my drop early

1. 1992-93: The inaugural event was thrown together at the last minute and held at high school gyms in southeast Iowa - with Burlington based Sterzing's Potato Chips serving as corporate sponsor. A year later, Dubuque Hams put its name on the event as well and brought the championship game to the city which borders both Wisconsin and Illinois. Both Burlington and Dubuque had a population of at least 25,000 as of the 2016 Census estimates. Name another city in Iowa with a population of 25,000 or more. [18 possible answers]
Almost went with Ottumwa (home of Radar O"Reilly), but I wasn't certain it had enough people. Turns out it did (25,023 in 2010), but then it didn't (24,487 in 2016).
