Welcome to the University Challenge! Or, at least, the Soton Tab’s commentary of it. Since it will be Southampton vs. Loughborough, we thought we would attempt to delve into intellectual matters….
It was a badger. The lucky honey badger!
185 – 80! Good one guys.
We’re still trying to work out what our mascot is – we can’t make it out
We’ve thrashed them…great work, particularly by De Caux
Yes, we need more beer
Isn’t University Challenge just a representation of university itself? Paxman is totally like those lecturers who know far more than you and have many ways of telling you that you are wrong, and everyone flounders for the answer.
Time is running out for Loughborough…good thing too as we’re running out of beer
Someone at the back of the Bridge was pretty pleased to have guessed “gout” there
Paxo just full on laughed at one of our responses #hanginthere
Nice try Soton!
Paxo was close to facepalming just then.
Tab just got one wrong #youwinsomeyoulosesome
If this is Varsity, this means Loughborough will win on a complication…
Paxo has a great range of condescending ways to say “no”
Southampton winning, as always. This is almost like an academic version of Varsity.
One of the Loughborough girls just got shot down
The Medieval picture looks so saucy
Not enough time spent in Manzils judging from their knowledge of Indian food
This silence is just getting awkward now.
Pretty close now, big cheer in the Bridge as Southampton got that maths starter
I think the Soton Team could go on the pull tonight, and succeed just by saying, “Six…”
Spain, Denmark.. Same thing same thing
Southampton bonuses on the Caribbean.
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN?
So glad they got some musical loving in there!
Fagin for Prime Minster! No to tax!
That really is quite enough of Oliver now
“I don’t know this” mouths one of the Loughborough team. You and me both
Paxo just got pretty dynamic, never heard him so enthusiastic.
One of the editor’s experience of Chemistry was setting fire to herself and someone trying to put it out with hydrochloric acid…
Music round now
I don’t believe these guys go to Southampton, never seen any of them in Jesters
Organic chemistry-based questions for Lough now. Glad it’s not us…
Was there even any such thing as films in the C19th?
Loughborough are catching up…
Has anyone ever learned any of these answers at university?
Belgium does violence?!
Loughborough’s team is nice and gender-balanced….
Loughborough look pretty chuffed to get rugby bonus questions
OH so Texas is guilty for Bush?
Tumblrbeasts make an entrance 😀
We’ve got 3 right so far…
What about black squirrels? Racist!
Loughborough are looking pretty glum and still without any points
Yes! One point for SotonTab!
Paxman sounded outraged…
Wait…they both have teddy bears!!!!!!!!
We Tab folk have no idea so far…maybe we won’t make next year’s team
I am learning new things. Yay for education!
First blood to Soton
Plenty of people in the Bridge to support the Soton team…big cheer as they’re introduced
Loughborough have a Teddy bear!
I wonder if the Soton team have ever had a Jesticle?
