Was the bridge actually terrible? I mean, I imagine it didn't suck, but how good is the Troy EB team this year?

if we got disqualified and were 16th out of 30 something then we weren't the only bad team... LOL

With knowing their score in 20 of 23 events it is not hard to figure it out.[/quote]
But you can't figure it out exactly. I would agree that they're a very dangerous team. It's likely they get in the top 5.[/quote]

The score was 65, however rockhound knew. And I hope you're right.[/quote]

i heard it was 65 not including 3 bombed events... total 100+

Actually, the reason that Troy got 16th was that the builder had forgotten to double check the height of his bridge and it was less than a mm too high.

Disclaimer: This person is a member of Troy's Scioly team and has a strong bias.

Actually, I think that their bridge just sucked.
I was there. it was pretty bulky
hehe reminded me of a plank :)
speaking pretty poorly about your own bridge, aren't you? :D

Disclaimer: sciencegeek100, boomtech, and prehistoricman5 all attend troy...

hehehehehhehe....
that must have been hard to figure out. ._.
dont worry, we have a plank ready for nationals too
and quite seriously, its a plank.

Could the three "bombed" events be the ones they didn't get medals in? ;)
