I have a lingering dislike of Quiz Bowl, since I felt they unjustly took attention from the manifestly superior debate team at my high school. However, here at Carleton, I will freely admit (even as now-emeriti Debate Team Coach) that Quiz Bowl deserves its position at the top of the totem pole. And they cemented that high status with a national title this week, their second in eight years. Even better, they beat none other than The Carleton of the East in the final round. Which makes it all the sweeter.
