It should be around Thanksgiving.

Corin has stated on HSQB, and his coach Jason Flowers has stated in a private email to me, that Corin did not make the comments on this blog. While I don’t know Corin, I know Jason pretty well and I’m inclined to believe him.
I’d like to encourage the person or people who are abusing the commenting system to make statements intended to misrepresent other people to stop doing that. The comments are useful tool for me to gather feedback to my work, quickly receive corrections, and have an easy way to get stats or other information I may have missed. While doing this to anyone is galling, to do it to an adolescent is particularly offensive and reprehensible.
I’d encourage anyone who has judged Corin due to these comments falsely attributed to him to be aware that he did not make these statements. I’d also hope that whoever did this would apologize to Corin and admit their role in this.
Here are your top 25 quiz bowl teams entering the 2015-16 season. Best of luck to all teams this year, and keep watching this site for updates on the rankings.
I plan on only doing a top 25 this year; it appears my accuracy from last year for my preseason 26-50 ended up being “will appear in the pre-nationals top 200, but no guarantee where,” which probably isn’t good enough to merit doing.
