Goucher College senior Sarah Bart enters tonight's final on 'Jeopardy's College Championship'  in second place, $8,200 behind the leader.

Bart was leading Monday going into Final Jeopardy, but missed this question: "In 2011, Elizabeth II marked the 400th anniversay of this, assembled by 47 translators in Oxford, London and Cambridge."

The correct answer: "What is the 'King James Bible?'"

Bart's answer: "What is the 'Oxford English Dictionary?'"

I might be a little biased here, but I think the question is poorly phrased and a little misleading. Thank you very much, Alex.

OK, I am biased on this one. As I acknowledged in a previous post on Bart's run that I teach at Goucher, though I do not know the contestant.

Don't count Bart out. She is a daring player who bets aggressively. And I am told by serious followers of this TV game show that is a good way to come out on top in the end.
