Modeled after college debates “The Copeland” recognizing season long excellence of policy debate teams, "The Baker" honors former St. Mark's School of Texas, Director of Debate, David Baker. After over twenty years as a debate coach he is now the Director of Admissions at St. Mark's. He continues to be a passionate advocate for debate both at St. Mark's and nationwide.

Has anyone done the math this year?

 

Based on the new formula, I'm pretty sure the most points you can get is 1,000 (200 x 5). Westminster JS has 980 unless I've missed a tournament:

 

180 - Michigan

200 - Glenbrooks

200 - Blake

200 - Emory

200 - Harvard

 

Can anyone beat that?

They lost in finals at Blake and didn't win Harvard so wouldn't they not get the maximum number of points for that? If you add in St. Mark's I think they have 960.

I think you're right -- the question is whether the Baker is based exclusively on preliminary rounds or whether it includes elimination rounds.

 

The Qualification Page (http://www.joyoftournaments.com/nv/ndca/info.asp?p=5) of the NDCA JOT site says:

 

You can view your debaters points earned in preliminary competition so far this year by going to http://ndca.joyoftournaments.com/.

 

However, the tournament procedures document (http://www.joyoftournaments.com//defn/8/3/8349/NDCA%20Championships%20Policy%20Debate%20tournament%20procedures%20as%20amended%20April%2024%202008.pdf) says:

 

Points are calculated using the following formula:

 

The number of teams attending the tournament (up to 100 teams) X Diversity of Tournament Multiplier (below) X Elimination Success Multiplier (below) X your preliminary round win percentage = TOTAL POINTS EARNED FROM THE TOURNAMENT.

 

Diversity of Tournament Multiplier (DTM):

1-2 states: 1.0

3-5 states: 1.2

6-8 states: 1.4

9-12 states: 1.6

13-15 states: 1.8

16 or more states: 2.0

 

Elimination Success Multiplier (ESM):

Didn’t clear: 1

Clearing but not winning an elimination round: 1.1

Octas: 1.2 (winning at least one elimination round)

Quarters: 1.4 (winning at least one elimination round)

Semis: 1.6 (winning at least one elimination round)

Finals: 1.8 (winning at least one elimination round)

Winning Finals: 2.3

 

Every elimination round from octafinals on is worth a bonus after the number of participants in elimination rounds is less than or equal to half the number of entries. For example, a tournament with 15 entries doesn't count for a bonus until semifinals. A tournament with 16 entries would count beginning with quarterfinals. A team must win an elimination round to get bonus points beyond clearing. For example, if a tournament breaks to semifinals and a team loses in semifinals the multiplier is 1.1.

 

So hypothetically, a team could attain 460 points for winning one of the big tournaments:

 

100 (maximum # of teams entered) X 2.0 (16 or more states) X 2.3 (win finals) X 1.0 (undefeated in prelims) = 460

 

So the maximum number of points a team could amass is 460 x 5 = 2300.

 

Re-doing Westminster JS:

 

Greenhill: 82 x 2.0 x 1.4 x .833 = 191.2

St. Mark's: 92 x 2.0 x 2.3 x .833 = 352.5

Michigan: 100 x 1.8 x 1.8 x 1.0 = 324.0

Glenbrooks: 100 x 2.0 x 2.3 x 1.0 = 460.0

Blake: 100 x 2.0 x 1.8 x 1.0 = 360.0

MBA: 56 x 2.0 x 1.4 x .833 = 130.6

Emory: 100 x 2.0 x 2.3 x 1 = 460.0

Harvard: 100 x 2.0 x 1.2 x 1 = 240.0

 

So top five are Glenbrooks (460.0), Emory (460.0), Blake (360.0), St. Mark's (352.5), and Michigan (324.0) for a total of 1956.5 or an average of 391.3 (or 85.0% of the maximum possible).

 

Someone correct me if any of this seems wrong.

 

If it's not wrong, feel free to crunch the numbers for other teams.

I've updated the previous post with unofficial standings... I crunched the numbers for the ten top teams on the GA Forensics bid list and then a few others that I was curious about. I might do a few more, but it seems very unlikely that the top few seeds will be supplanted.

 

If anyone notices a mistake/omission, please let me know; figuring out which tournaments teams have attended is difficult and locating accurate results for some tournaments is harder than one would think. Please also crunch the numbers for other teams and post them in this thread; I'll add them to the standings. If I didn't do your team, it's not because I hate you... this takes a lot of effort and I had to stop somewhere.

 

Congratulations to all these teams for putting together excellent regular seasons!

Kinkaid's memorial results were 5-0 in prelims and 1st place overall, layne and I were also 6th and 7th speaker, I believe there were also around 67 teams in attendance,

Thanks for doing all this, Craig

Happy to do it... this is one of the few times when my love of baseball statistics and my love of debate can commingle into geeky bliss.

 

Assuming Memorial had 67 teams from 1-2 states, Kinkaid KS would receive 67 x 1.0 x 2.3 x 1.0 = 154.1 points, so not one of the top five. The state multiplier is crucial... if there were 16 states at the same tournament, that point total would balloon to 308.2.

 

So no change in the standings. If anyone else notices omissions or wants to see a team's totals calculated, let me know (either post in this thread or email me).

 

Does anyone have the points from last year? I'm just curious to see. I know Colleyville DH won the award

 

I have been unable to locate the numbers... I think they were in an NDCA newsletter, but I don't have it on my computer as far as I can tell. If anyone tracks these down, please share... this'll be a cool thing to track historically (top seasons of all-time, top seasons by state, closest finishes, etc. ... it could be like baseball-reference.com for debate).

 

EDIT: And actually, there's no reason one couldn't calculate statistics historically... as long as you could track down results packets, you could crunch the numbers of any team ever. (Chances that I don't do that? Zero.)

the rankings are based on the sum of their top 5 tournaments only. since memorial wasn't part of your top 5, it wouldn't change the ranks

I actually made a mistake with Kinkaid's points, though (missed one of the top five tournaments). I'm entering everything into a spreadsheet and will post the corrected/updated list later tonight...

No. Allow me to demonstrate.

 

a = x

154a = 77a+77x

154a-154x = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a-77x

154(a-x) = 77(a-x)

154 = 77

 

So you'd actually get only 77 points.

154(a-x) = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a-77x

154(a-x) = 77(a-x)

154 = 77

 

So you'd actually get only 77 points.

 

why aren't you taking math this year? you clearly are a computative genius.

kicked out of nt math.. 6 years later and you're taking voodoo math?

a = x

154a = 77a+77x

154a-154x = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a-77x

154(a-x) = 77(a-x)

154 = 77

 

So you'd actually get only 77 points.

Here is the Top 10 list from last year. One caveat: this is a list of the Top 10 teams who planned to attend the NDCA Championships. Prior to the work that Brent at joyoftournaments did it was a nightmare to figure everyone's points so unless people submitted their spreadsheets we didn't bother to figure their points.

 

Colleyville Heritage High School Evan DeFilippis - James Hamraie 1552

Stratford Academy William Karlson - Brian Cole 1357

Cathedral Prep Leo Hayes - Mike Carlotti 1312

St. Mark's School of Texas Alex Katz - Jordan Blumenthal 1303

Bishop Guertin HS Chris Power - Katryna Cadle 1122

Groves High School Sophia Goren - Maya Bhardwaj 1111

Damien High School Andres Gannon - Trevor Chenoweth 1014

Woodward Academy Evan Matthews - Brittany Nehman 1008

Glenbrook North High School Debbie Oh - Lucy Zhu 879

Lakeland District Debate Jason Wright - Taylor Roth 873

No. Allow me to demonstrate.

 

a = x

154a = 77a+77x

154a-154x = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a+77x-154x

154(a-x) = 77a-77x

154(a-x) = 77(a-x)

154 = 77

 

So you'd actually get only 77 points.

 

life sure is easier when you can divide by zero
