New users whose posts are still under moderation are advised to create a separate post below the main announcement reserved for field updates. Any edits made to an approved post must go back in the approval queue again. If the first post in a thread is edited, the entire thread is hidden until the edits are approved. Creating a second post in the thread for field updates means only the field update post will not be visible while edits are approved, rather than the entire announcement thread.

Any updates on teams in the field? Also, I'm new here, so I'm not sure how to create one of those things that designates one team I play for (It's late, I can think of words).

The thing in question is called a signature, and one can be enabled by going to the user control panel --> profile --> edit signature. Also please include at least your first name. --Mgmt

Farragut had to withdraw one team just this morning. Otherwise, it is final.

Eric,

USN MIGHT be able to field a B team . If this happens, would we be able to take Farragut C's spot?. Once again, this is only a possibility.

The SQBS stats link on the HSQB Database page for this tournament appears to be broken.

Please don't become Charlie, Eric.

Farragut A, MLK A, Ezell-Harding A, and USN A were the top 4 teams out of 16 total teams.
I don't remember how the other 12 teams were ordered..
Were individual stats kept?

There is a black hole somewhere on I-24 between Chattanooga and Nashville (probably in Murfreesboro) that eats every stats file in the state. Also if ACF Fall was any indication, nobody from Vandy reads the forums often enough to know that people want stats.

Edit:
Wow, when you said that Vandy didn't check the boards, you were right!
I hate to harp on this, but this was my first real NAQT tournament and I would really like to know my individual stats.
Sincerely,
a self absorbed junior looking for a confidence boost

Stats

EDIT: At second glance, I'd just like to say how impressed I am with Ezell Harding's current team. If I'm not mistaken Griffin is a junior and the other three are sophomores, so they're going to be really great next year too.
