    I asked you before the game if you knew the rules and you said you did.

    So for the 200 point question, do we only need to state the number, or do we include the guy who wore it too?

    We have assumed it refers to just the number. The question asks about the number.

    Clarification question: Are we talking about Division I only or are Division II and III included?

    I would assume all. Or at least, I have assumed all.

    Except when just talking about those records and the like, everything is D-I only. Also, most of the time, college basketball/NCAA basketball, etc is used just to refer to D-I.

    The question read NCAA. That, unless otherwise specified, should be an umbrella term. I can only answer what I see put infront of me (correct or not, is another matter! :p ), and there's but a few scant hours until this round expires with no response to your query. And I have to go to bed.

    Problem is, NCAA is used generally as synonymous with D-I unless otherwise specified. Hence the problem. And I would say there should be an extension, given the lack of a response.

    I PMed RealMadrid at the same time I posted here with the question, btw.

    Just to clarify for some participants, which may change your answers, the NCAA is made up of more than 1 Division.

    Got it, and answers sent in, though I will say that mixing D-II and D-III records with D-I is akin to mixing minor league records for baseball with MLB records, or NBDL with NBA, or any other similar comparison :p
