Today is the day of “The Red C”

Update! 6:30pm 1st place! We won the “1st timers” categories because Southern Miss went on to place in the top 3 overall, which made them ineligible for our category. Way to go team!

Update! 4:30pm The live scoreboard has been frozen to increase the drama surrounding the last hour of the competition. Can UAB stay on top (at our tournament)? Can anyone unseat the current overall leader UCF? Can Samford come from behind and win the “1st timers” competition. We will know the answer to all these questions in 1 hour!

Update! 3:59pm The Southern Miss “Golden Eagles” just pulled ahead in the “1st timers” category by solving a third problem. There’s still time left for us to come back.

Update! 3:25pm Our team has solved a second problem which puts them in the lead in the “1st timers” category. Come on “Red C”!

My programming team, “The Red C” (think Moses), is competing right now as the first team ever from Samford in the ACM Southeast Regional programming competition. Check out the live scoreboard. There are six first time teams here, and the Samford team was the first of those six teams to solve a problem! Way to go Greg, Jonathan, and Bradley!!!

The competition is being held at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. Here is a topocreator map of the school with the building where the competition is being held. I am upstairs sequestered in the coaches room with a nice wireless connection. The students are right below working diligently.
