Misfit: no trophies in Oxford

Oh dear, oh dear.
We all thought Manchester Uni had been beaten by Trimble et al in the University Challenge final (see 24 February post), but it has since transpired that one of the Corpus Christi contestants was actually not eligible to take part in the competition so the Oxford team has been pilloried in the press and stripped of its beautiful be-silvered prize so graciously accepted from poet Wendy Cope (who isn't my former English teacher, dammit).
That means Manch take the title and the trophy - hurrah to them!
Pints of watered-down Boddies all round in the Serpent!
