I tried entering a number on a whim to see what would happen. It seems to have taken it. Is it normal to get an error message if you type the wrong answer?
1221. I couldn't tell you why. It seems to fit a pattern if you ignore the 5th set but with it included, I can't explain it.

If you don't know any of the numbers, it's 1/6. 6x6=36 possible rolls, 6 of them adding up to 7.

They're out of sight but can they hear each other?

SpoilerAssuming "X beat Y and Z" allows X to beat Y but lose to Z.
Ed, Jim, Bill, Tom
Ed:
Bill wasn't last.
I was the winner.Jim finally broke 100.
I shot 98.Jim:
I beat Billand Ed.
The last hole was not my best.
We didn't all break 100.
Tom wasn't the winner.Bill:
I beat Jim and Tom.
Ed shot 111.Jim took 6 on the last hole.
None of us broke 100.Tom:
Ed beat Bill.I was the winner.
Bill placed between Ed and Jim.
The last hole was Jim's best.

17 hours ago, bonanova said:Initials occurring in odd positions of the alphabet must have held even positions in the circle.
That doesn't give any information about the team. The order could be Taylor, Miller, Brown, Gerson Jenkins, Adams, Babcock, Carver, Randolph, Smith, Flynn, Sawyer, Timmons, Myers, Lucas, Morton, Peters, Young. The first 9 could be Cons and they still wouldn't call their initials.

A couple assumptions:
"We didn't all break 100." includes the possibility that no one did.
"Bill placed between Ed and Jim" means directly between.
Ed, Bill Tom, Jim

Well, there's an even number of players and an even number of letters. Once you've hit the 13th round, they start repeating letters. So if they alternate, all the Cons will have even letter (B, D, F, etc) initials and call odd letters. Prose have odd letter (A, C, E, ...) initials and call even.

Does the circle alternate between teams? If so...
Cons: Taylor, Brown, Jenkins, Babcock, Randolph, Flynn, Timmons, Lucas, Peters
Prose: Miller, Gerson, Adams, Carver, Smith, Sawyer, Myers, Morton, Young 
Dick Brown
Bill Harris
Carl Jones
Al Smith?

I've always struggled with this kind of probability but...
If you pull a card from each deck, the odds of a match are 1/52. Doesn't that mean that out of 52 attempts, there should be an average of 1 match?

I see... I have a tendency to switch numbers in my head. All the right digits were there!

Possibly both typos!
(6C3 = 20) x (12C6 = 924) = 18,480
(6C4 = 15) x (12C5 = 792) = 11,880
(6C5 = 6) x (12C4 = 495) = 2,790
(6C6 = 1) x (12C3 = 220) = 220
33,370 
Perhaps coincidence
All the names are 8 letters so far...

I think rocdocmac and I agree on the figure including equilateral now but we seem to have diverged on the other figure...

I think I mixed Carver and Carter at some point along the way. Please ignore that guess.
