    Trivia is unfair.

    What was the second highest points-per-game percentage for a Division 1A team in 2000?

    That question sucks. The numbers were all over the place and I didnt even know what sport it was talking about. Lacrosse, Soccer, Football?

    I agree. At least make the questions reasonable. I wen't for the 125 question last night and got a question about a MNF game in 1997 I understand it's trivia and it's not supposed to be a gimme but like I said make the questions reasonable.

    I got this on the first question.

    What umpire called Jose Offerman out on the "phantom tag" from Chuck Knoblauch in Game 4 of the AL 1999 Division Series?

    WTF?

    trivia should be a concrete answer that one reasonable fans may know the answer too. Compiling crazy statistics that even the guy whom complied the information doesnt know is a little ridiculous. When they first started trivis, I did well because it was things that made sense. Barry Sanders rushing total for 1997. Four options and any fan who watched would remember the general number. I have one for SBR. What color was Reggie White's t-shirt under his pads in his second game at home as a Phladelphia Eagle? Thats the equivelent to what you guys ask us.

    SBR Trivia isn't a program to handout free points...it's called Trivia for a reason.

    I have no issue with SBR trivia being difficult but I think they have struggled to appropriately rank questions based on point level. Someone should be able to look at a question and be able to tell if it is a 10 pointer or a 125 pointer based on the difficulty of the question.
