February is a bad month for quiz bowl, with a number of scandals occurring or becoming public.

2009- the Neil Sammader cheating incident
2009- Matt Knupp's scandal
2009- the incident at the Southeast SCT (DII)
2010-
2011- the Dmitri Halikias fraud/cheating incident
2012-
2013- Announcement of Josh Alman's cheating at various 2012 events
2017- A "statistically anomalous performance by the Windhaven Park E team" at the St. Mark's Invitational [1]

It is also prone to snow storms which ruin or reschedule sites of NAQT SCT and ACF Regionals, perhaps the only two bright spots of the month.
