A CARDINAL COUPLE QUIZ
|"You ready for this Sam? Sure, Jaz!"|
The quiz was a staple of our radio show THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR during the summer months and I'll attempt to bring it back for our weekly podcast this Saturday.
Like anything these days, a few modifications will be needed, we won't be able to see our participants flash an answer on a mini-white board, I've misplaced the bell for a "right" answer and a couple of other things will be missing, but, I'm sure we'll be able to get through it in typical disorderly and "wheels-off the-track" fashion.
Jeff will probably argue answers and disrupt the proceedings, Case will complain he doesn't know much about the subject matter and refuse to take the bonus question. Jared will change his answer two or three times after asking me to repeat the question.
It ain't easy being me....
Today, let's look at student-athletes and coaches in the quiz. After all, they are why there are college athletics.
You get 10 points for each correct answer. I'll toss in the bonus after the 10 questions, optional for the quiz taker, where you can either gain 20 points or lose 20 points depending on your answer. The bonus, again, is optional.
No "peeking up your sleeve" for answers or conferring with Google or Siri for the right answer. You are on the "honor" system. Keep your eyes on your own keyboard and let us know how did in the comments section.
OK. Here we go. Drum roll, please, for the student athlete/coaches quiz, maestro!

I thought we had 4 commits. Is Merissah Russell not coming?ReplyDelete
You are correct. She's always the one I forget. I re-phrased the question. Good eye, Cardsman!Delete
Well, well. I had a 70 on the quiz but took the @#$% bonus and gor it wrong for A TOTAL OF 50. I MISSED #2, #3 and #5.ReplyDelete
Masks in public today, everyone. I'll be interesting to see who follows the directive tonight in the store.

Fun quiz today! I got a 100%. I missed the two non-basketball ones but gambled on the bonus and got it.
Val speaks: Of course, she doesn't have to worry about the 500 lb. gorilla in her conference. College Football.
Big East commissioner Val Ackerman said Friday that the league won't have sports in the fall if students aren't allowed back on campus.
During a conference call with reporters, Ackerman stressed that the geographic footprint of the league -- the 11 schools cover 10 states and the District of Columbia -- increases the likelihood that schools in the Big East will have "staggered entry dates" and a "patchwork outcome." But she also said that sports won't be played if campuses remain closed into the fall semester
"If our campuses aren't open, we will not have athletes coming back or sports events or activities resuming," she said.
Meanwhile, I can go get a tattoo but can't walk on the beach.
Maybe I wasn't made for these times.
I couldn't catch you Dave-O. I had 8 of 10 also but missed on the bonus so I ended up with 60. I missed the lacrosse question, the softball question and the bonus.ReplyDelete
They can play all the fall sports they want but I hope they keep fans out or keep them to very limited attendance. And, if this re-entry to working and opening up shops and restaurants backfires and the nation sees a big increase in cases, I hope they cancel them all. One life saved is way more than important than one first down or goal scored.
Nice quiz Paulie! I didn't do that great. I had a 60 in the ten questtions and chose not to take the bonus. That was a wise decision, because I would have got it wrong. Bea did better than me! She went 7 for 10 and gambled on the bonus and got it right! 90 points for her.
Things are starting to open up here in South Carolina, but, because of our age and Bea's COPD, we are not venturing out except for essentials and one visit a week to a favorite restaurant for carry-out.
I felt bad, bad, bad last week and wondered if I had contracted the virus. Called the doctor, went in and it was determined that is was just my allergies, not the COVID-19 virus. I was quite relieved. I still got a cough and runny nose but "amped up" my allergy medicine and I'm on the improve.
I look at things differently these days. No matter what Clemson decides to do on fall sports, I doubt we attend, unless this virus goes away and a vaccine is administered. It just isn't worth it, we probably don't have too many years left, sad to say, so why risk an early departure.
