There's no light in our dorm rooms.

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

This would be an unofficial ranking done by the scioly community for fun. The idea behind aggregating multiple voters is that it decreases the influence of bias (you could even take out the highest and lowest ranking of each team to cut out bias even more). I don't think it would be something to ta...

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

Ranking teams is not that hard. Even just writing a program to do it is able to put Nationals placements within 3 ranks from actual position on average. This is true.

Re: Nationals Bid Discussion

If we're throwing out ideas here, what about this: 1) Figure out the critical mass of teams for nationals at the venue. 2) Give the #1 team in each state an automatic bid. 3) Give 1 extra bid to states in alphabetical order to satisfy the max amount of teams. 4) Subsequent years pick up at next alph...
