Welcome back to Mid-Majority Finals Week
! Not a lot of basketball going on this week as most kids are taking their finals, so we're letting you compete for big prizes (approximate retail value of each one: $15!!!) whilst displaying your remarkable grasp of all things mid-major.
To repeat! "Pencils down" time is Saturday at 6:00 PM EST.
Send your completed answer sheets to firstname.lastname@example.org
. The rest of the details about rules and prizes and stuff can be found here, along with the first 10 questions.
And no chatting amongst yourselves during the test, or I'm going to have to have my assistant open a can of whoop-ass in a very medieval way. And you wouldn't like The Official Wife Of The Mid-Majority™ when she's angry. So leave her an apple.Today's Test: GEOGRAPHY11.
What state is Jacksonville State University, home of the Gamecocks, located in?12.
There are actually two Chapel Hills in North Carolina. The tiny one in Madison County - way out near the Tennessee border - is just 20 short miles from a University of North Carolina that doesn't have a single national championship to its credit. Name the school and the conference it plays in.13.
I am the highway that keeps Big Sky rivals Montana and Montana State well-separated. What's my name, fool?14.
How many Division I basketball schools are there in the state of North Dakota?15.
How many (non-provisional) Division I basketball schools are there whose names contain "University of California"?16.
What state hosted the last Final Four that was not
held in some type of domed stadium?17.
Name the schools that comprise Buffalo's Big Four.18.
The "Pit" isn't just the nickname of a couple of big-school arenas, it's also the acronym for a spring tournament designed to allow college seniors to impress NBA scouts. Where is it held (city and state, please)?19.
What do Natchitoches, Louisiana and Evanston, Illinois have in common?20.
I am a conference. Those idiots on ESPN call me a small conference, but I'm actually freakishly huge. In fact, if you were to jump in a car at my easternmost school and drive across me to my westernmost school, you'd find that I'm over 2,000 miles end-to-end. Who am I?
