This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Individual Championships do not effect the team scoring by thedeadguy
All fencers compete in 23 bouts. The amount of wins goes to the team score. That is why it is so important to have 12 fencers, because each fencer has an opportunity for 23 wins. The top 4 in each weapon fence for the individual NCAA championship. However, those results do not impact the Team Championship.
So in Epee, Amanda was 20-3, ranked 1. She lost to the the 4th overalll finisher in the individual championship (who had 16 or 17 wins), but that did not effect the team competition.
Similarly, the Irish has the # 2 and 3 finishers in foil, but there team results were locked in.
2x Individual Sabre Champion Russo finished 3rd, but her team results were locked in.
