A team achieves a "Michigan 10" on a three-part bonus when it gets the hard part correct, but misses the intended middle and easy parts. Analogously, a Michigan 20 involves getting the middle and hard part of a bonus, while missing the intended easy part.

Though it is unclear which specific era the term originated in, it pokes fun at highly successful editions of the Michigan quizbowl team that had deep knowledge in many subjects while occasionally lacking in gameplay sense.
