TeamBeer vs. Walty12 - FAU Men's Basketball Trvia Showdown!

Completely agree with TeamBeer - he's probably the smartest guy on here  ;)

I'd like to challenge TeamBeer to an academic decathalon.  We have a combined 12 years of undergraduate studies so it should be a doozie!

Bring it!

10 categories (you did know a decathalon is 10 right  ;)) Mostly made up of different FAU sports and facts…2 math problems, 1 spanish 2 question and an essay.

Rick, draw it up! People will pay top dollar to watch this one!

OK, Men's Basketball style, but minus the Spanish inclusion and a little more questions:

1. Calculate the sum of: Sidney Green's losses + Kevin Billerman's losses, minus Tim Loomis' wins. (medium)

2. What is the team's best shooting percentage for a season since 2000, minus the worst shooting percentage for a season since 2000? (easy)

3. What fraternity does the former basketball announcer Gary D. Wright belong to? (very hard)

4. Who was the team's first DI win against, what conference did it occur in, and what was the score? (medium)

5. What FAU player appeared nationally on ESPN2 in the Slam Dunk contest, jumping over a seated Dick Vitale to take 1st place? (easy)

6. Who was the first 1,000 point scorer in program history and what is his "tie" to a long time Nest Member? (medium)

7. What was the name of the first student Fan Club that attended road games via bus? (hard)

8-10. What was the biggest win of all time for the program, and why? (you make it easy or hard)


*BONUS: Name the two former players who were offered by Virginia Tech. (very hard)


The essay will count for three questions, so please include that number of reasons to support your argument. Additionally, spell out your responses with definitive numbers for 1 & 2.

To aid in your endeavor should you be stumped, you can find some answers with solid research on this site.


All other members: please refrain until they have duked it out!


On a side note:

I hope to see some "top dollars" come in from this, because the Pay Pal account has been awfully quiet as of late!

;D

Sounds good!

Please send me the answers via PM, and I will post when you have both replied…if Walty can handle the competition, that is…….

The essay will be judged by a Nest Member Poll to make it fair.
