History

The history of Knee Deep in Theses is a long and storied one. The team is composed of many Cornell University Physics and Astronomy graduate students--both current and former-- as well as graduates of the Penn State meteorology graduate program. There is also a huge spattering of other members who have been exposed to trivia weekend one way or another.

Many of the current team members owe their introduction to trivia weekend too Carl Ferkinhoff, who him self was first exposed to trivia weekend back in the late 90's by helping out the fabled Rich Corinthan Leather. Over the next few years Carl and his high school friends had several teams including potIhbe' chugh yay qatIhpeeghlu'.---..-.-..-..---., and In 23rd Place With 9835 Points. One year the team name was written using symbols from Myst Exile (NERDS!!!). In the words of the KVSC website  "This team used a cryptic code for their name that don't translate to the web. Silly team."  

While in college, Carl brought the joy of trivia weekend to St. Peter, MN and formed Wee r ay grewp uv reelee smrt peepull. Finding himself in Baltimore, MD for two years Carl formed the teams "Crabs? We got'em!" and "Crabs? We got'em, again!"  Most recently Carl found himself in Ithaca, NY the birth place of Knee Deep in Theses.  Along the way they have been awarded at least once for Best Team Name, an horrible mention for worst team name, and an emphatic "Cut it out" for the year of the symbol team name.
