Conference Locations On The Map ...

Postby Cane from the Bend » Mon Jul 16, 2018 5:04 am

.

I will post each of these I find in separate replies after this message, to keep all of these in the same thread.

I'll change the Subject Title to reflect which Conference will be linked.

* edit * --- there do not seem to be any of these challenges posted for the Group of 5 conferences, so this thread will just pertain to the Power5 ---

You have 2 minutes to try and name the school to it's location on the map.

As titled, this is the ACC, however, take note, that it lists 15 teams, as there is a certain non-conference affiliate associated with this challenge. [hint hint]

Just tried my hand at this ... I got the Pac correct, 46 seconds remaining.

I, myself, haven't been to too many Left coast venues. I not yet made it to Stanford, Berkeley, the Los Angeles Coliseum, Tuscan, I don't even really know where Pullman or Corvallis are.

I haven't been to Salt Lake City for a football game, though, it is on my list of Stadiums to Attend.

I'd like to look back one day, and say I've seen `em all. I still young enough to try. Hut the distance is heavy for that sort of Autumn travel, and the frequency of Traveling out West.

Well, I was just able to eek out a 100% score before the clock hit zero ... 9 seconds left.

Those North Carolina schools get me befuddled as to which one is located where. The rest of the field was fairly simple.

I guess being from the area helped a little. I was able to do this challenge with 24 seconds to spare. Not as fast as I went through the Pac-12, but that was mainly because I couldn't see the state dividing lines, just the outline of the great lakes & the eastern sea board and the US/Canada border.

It's harder to just, guess, the geography of a team's location, if you cannot make out what state you're looking at. Though, if you know the general geographical region, and are relatively familiar with that region's schools, it isn't that bad.

For those of you who do not know which Midwest state is where; you likely will not enjoy this one.

I was pleasantly surprised that I was successful with this one.

Like the Big Ten, the Big XII locations do not have the state lines. I guess with only 10 teams, typing through the names isn't quite as taxing. I was able to complete them all with 44 seconds still on the clock.

It's interesting seeing it this way; you notice how much of a vertical path these schools are in.

Again, this one does not have the state lines.

It took me twice to get them all; the second time I finished with just 12 to spare.

Also, this is random. So, if you are attempting to retry, the order of locations change.
