Here are my next requests if possible:

May 2, 1995 - College Championship Quarter-Final #2
May 3, 1995 - College Championship Quarter-Final #3
May 8, 1995 - College Championship Semi-Final #1
May 9, 1995 - College Championship Semi-Final #2
May 12, 1995 - College Championship Final #2
Okay, I can work on those after the five seniors games I have lined up next.

You've got Leonard credited with a correct response in FJ. I just submitted a correction suggestion but figured I'd mention it here.

As for what Burt wrote, I could see it as a hasty (and/or pen-inhibited) effort at San or South something.

All senior champs now have at least one game from their original tourney in the archive. Other than Bruce Seymour, are there any other tourney winners without representation from their first time on the show even if not their debut episode?

^As of today, all tournament winners have at least one of their games from their initial tournament archived.

Bruce Seymour's original run is in there as I had checked the wrong season. I also confirmed Jim Scott has a game, so even all TOC winners have at least one of their regular run games in. Nice.

17W :twisted:

At least Cole did not make the semis and I don't have to deal with him anymore.

That's five more seniors games in and to keep my sanity I'll do the five college requests on tap next.

^Yes, it definitely sounded like "Counting Crows" without a doubt.

Thank you opus and Jeff for the help with the Audio DD. I gave Josh a Who in a coin toss over What as I was not sure about his lead-in either. Josh liked to lean right into the mike when speaking and I had trouble at times distinguishing what he was saying.

I remember Cynthia's FJ response. I had already heard of yttrium at that point in my life, I'm pretty sure.

Edit: reading through 1995 GRAMMYS, I think I can recall expecting a reversal on the $500 clue, because I heard Cynthia say "Salt-N-Pepper" and I didn't think it was acceptable.

Horton heard a Who, and I hear a "Who", too.

Here are the Grammys clue and Cynthia's FJ! response.

If I need to change how they are archived then post here or make a suggestion correction.

I don’t if it matters, but Josh said “the” before the band’s name.

The players messed up as there were only 9TS and 9W instead of double digits. :D

Yeah, that is the kind of FJ! clue that produces three semifinalists.

Given that they didn't take it away from her, I think noting her response as "Salt-N-Pepa" is fine. In my California-accented ears I still hear "Pepper," but I acknowledge that people in other parts of the country do say a final A like that.

As for her FJ response, it looks like she was splitting the difference between yttrium and ytterbium. Some weirdness between the Y and the t's does make it look like there's an A there, so Alex read "alterium," and then Cynthia's clarification sounded more like iridium, although I could imagine that she's saying her response with the t's and r swapped, like y'rettium. I think "Ytterium" was the spelling she was going for; I don't think there's a crossed-out A there, but it doesn't bother me if it stays there as the best way to indicate the mess on the left side of her writing.
