All we do is win, win, win, no matter what.
Got money on mind, I can never get enough
And every time I step up in the building
Everybody hands go up

But really? I can't wait for someone to beat you. "Preparation not required" is a BS attitude.

So true.

Auburn Jr. High is easily the powerhouse of the B Division, while Randolph is definitely the C Division powerhouse. All we do is win, win, win, no matter what. Preparation not required

In all seriousness, Randolph is definitely the team to beat in recent years. Auburn High may have been good back when they had a team, but in case you haven't noticed, they don't exist anymore. And I seriously doubt Auburn ever won state 14 times in a row. What years was this, the 80's? Randolph's been state champs 3 of the 4 years I've been on the team, and the one year we didn't make it was when we were 2nd (unfortunately, a low point). Maybe I was being a tad strong in using the term powerhouse, but we have been the favorites for the last several years and will continue to be even after I'm gone. And I totally agree, preparation not required is a BS attitude when it comes to nationals, but it works for Alabama state, when all you need to do is beat out allllll those simply amaaazing teams that Alabama boasts. Which is why Randolph has managed to be in the Alabama top 2 year in and year out but never been able to finish in the top half overall at nationals, simply from waiting until the very last week to start studying. It gets the job done if the goal is solely the privilege of attending nationals. I've never prepared earlier than the night of, and I've still gotten 7 state gold medals, among others, but have barely broken into the national top 20 a few times. That's just how uncompetitive Alabama is. Heck, Randolph lost half its "A" team to spring break this year but we won state nonetheless. That's the only reason LAMP came even close. Anyway, there's a little more than a week left until nationals, so maybe I'll start now and work a little bit harder for my third and final time to hopefully make a top 10 showing. Third time's the charm (now I'm kidding)

by auburn, i meant auburn junior high school in division b. Auburn Junior High has won 14 straight years. look on the wiki. (The name of the school has changed from Samford Middle School to Drake Middle to Auburn Junior high.) And i dont know about division c, but in division b auburn actually has some competition. Our Lady of the Valley got close to beating us this year and they are our rival. oh and we put a lot of time into science olympiad and we spend months preparing for state and nats.

and maybe the reason you havent been able to medal at nats is because you dont start preparing until the night before competition.

Wow, very astute observation Detective. Maybe I should start preparing for nats a few days in advance, then I can place, which is exactly what I just wrote. Anyway, I see your team has had some good looks at nationals in the past, with several Top 20 finishes. Congratulations, and good luck this year. You can surely represent Alabama a lot better than we can, what with our utter lack of preparation and dependence on improvisation, natural intelligence, and "winging it." This last part isn't sarcasm; I want you guys to do well, and hopefully I can too if I try harder.
