From 1987:

This past summer there was a no-holds-barred competition between the Gods and the Titans of legendary proportions at the Tennessee Free for All. Schools represented include Wisconsin, LSU, OSU, FSU, Maryland, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Emory, NC State, Vanderbilt, and Armstrong State. Many veterans and retired players competed in their last hurrah. While some may argue that the questions of the Championship round hit below the belt (which is an inside joke), it was well fought down to the twentieth question. "The MAD Professors" consisted of Georgia Tech's coach Doc (Big Bad Bob) Meredith, former Tech Captain Chris Moody, the former Tech great- now of NC State- Chuck Wessell, and Don Windham currently of Tennessee Wesleyan, who has visited Georgia Tech. "The Bonus Army" included Mike Dekker- a judge (and writer?) at Nationals, Tom Waters, Mike Hart, and someone from the 1966 season, a history professor named Byron- all from Armstrong State. On the twentieth question, with "The Bonus Army" leading, Tom interrupted, enabling "The Mad Professors" to snatch the victory. Carol Guthrie ran a smooth tournament, and there was, amazingly enough, no reader error.
