University of Minnesota sophomore Nibir Sarma just picked up a cool $100,000 in the college Jeopardy! tournament that aired this week.

Nabir and my son were high school classmates and took AP Chemistry together. Both are Chemical Engineering majors (but at different schools; my son goes to UW-Madison). My son sent him congratulations tonight and they chatted a bit.

Did you hear about the last Final Jeopardy in this competition?

Holding an insurmountable lead heading into the “Final Jeopardy!” question of the “Jeopardy! College Championship,” Nibir Sarma decided this was the time to crack a joke.

So the University of Minnesota sophomore crossed out what was the correct answer on his screen, and simple wrote, “Who Da Man?”

Show host Alex Trebek read Sarma’s answer aloud, at which point Sarma replied, “You Da Man, Alex.”

I like the way he wrote the correct answer, and then crossed it out; that way everyone could see that he did know the correct answer.
