Do you think they would have accepted just "Truman" instead of "Margaret Truman"? The contestant got it wrong by using the first name Bess, but I'm wondering if someone at that point could still have gotten it by just the last name.
I actually thought they would, given AT's pause before negging "Bess Truman." Given the show's penchant for accepting "Johnson" for LBJ (and presumably Andrew Johnson), I wouldn't put them past taking just "Truman" on this one.
When I saw Calhoun pop up, I immediately jumped to Yale, given the recent controversies there over the name of one of its residential colleges. But, I knew Calhoun <> South Carolina partly from school and partly from seeing his giant statue + mansion in Charleston, so I started going through schools there (College of Charleston, The Citadel) before settling on Clemson about halfway through the music. I didn't think of Furman in Greenville, but that certainly would have given me pause.
Yet another neg-heavy game for me, many of which are coming at the beginning of rounds. I'm thinking I should take the commercials in real time instead of fast-forwarding, as well as taking a pause between jotting down categories and starting the clues.
