Most Underrated debater: Pat

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: "Condoms have ruined the cultural significance of great sex." - Dan Fitzgerald.

 

Hottest debater: Lozl

 

Favorite judge (and why): Dana Christensen, he always makes really well though-out and well-explained decisions.

 

Debater with the most potential: Our novice, Dan Wilcox. I'm biased, but I think he could be pretty good next year.

 

Best partnership: Nick/Zack from Westside

 

Most Untopical case: Fremont's "withdraw all aid" case. I think our biotech case was pretty untopical, too.

 

Best negative position: Compassion Fatigue. It seems to be able to win rounds even when not mentioned in the 2NR. I guess descriptions of suffering really do make us dumb... I mean "numb." Our Farm Bill politics scenario was also pretty good; it's probably been my favorite DA ever.

 

Funniest off case position you saw: Empire.

 

Funniest thing you stumbled upon while researching: I found this at camp.

 

Favorite tourney: State was fun, though kind of awkward.

 

Least favorite tourney: Westside. That tournament hates me. Horrible draw + other issues = bad.

 

Scariest Debater: Jenna from MS because her rebuttals are really really loud.

 

Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: Nick/Don't know/Alex

 

Best non-debate experience/event at a debate tourney this year: I probably shouldn't say.

 

Worst Strategic Choice (in round): Forgetting to answer extra T.. at nat quals.

 

Most likely to be a debate coach: Brittany, or possibly David Frenzel.

 

Most likely to graduate and judge ALL the time: Lisa

 

Senior you’ll miss the most: Lisa, the Westside people, and Mike from Fremont even though he kind of scares me sometimes. It's been a fun year.

Most Underrated debater: Aspec/Frenzel -- upsetting Ian & David TWICE at State was a pretty big accomplishment.

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: Josh sticking his head under the elmo and literal tag-team CX. They're not quotes but that round was pretty fucking hilarious.

 

Favorite judge (and why): Almost all of them. One thing Nebraska has going for it is seriously awesome judging. If I had to pick one judge that we saw a lot and that we could always trust to make a good, clear, helpful decision, I'd go with Dylan.

 

Debater with the most potential: Ryan/Shane

 

Best partnership: I'm not sure about best partnership, but Keri was definitely the best partner. I wouldn't have done nearly as well without Keri, and I can only hope my college partner will be as awesome as her. <3

 

Most Untopical case: Withdrawl all aid

 

Best negative position: Nietzsche :-)

 

Funniest off case position you saw: Dildos PIC

 

Funniest thing you stumbled upon while researching: The dildo as a simulacrum via it being a copy of a lesbian penis, which does not exist. That or any of the websites we cut cards from that had ridiculous names like "discreetromance.com"

 

Favorite tourney: Dowling

 

least favorite tourney: Skutt...boooooring

 

Scariest Debater: I don't think any of you are really that scary?

 

Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: Ian/Wike/Dana

 

Best non-debate experience/event at a debate tourney this year: The rides in the policy van were pretty awesome. Good music, good company, and those weird comic books

 

Worst Strategic Choice (in round): Folding in the Greenhill round...

 

Most likely to be a debate coach: Keri

 

Most likely to graduate and judge ALL the time: Keri

 

Senior you’ll miss the most: Since I'm a senior, I'm pretty much going to miss everybody. I'll miss all of the Millard South kids the most, since I've been debating with them for three or four years each and have known most of them even longer.

Most Underrated debater: I think his name is Andy or Adam from LH. the MS kids are all calling him aspec, though i've never learned why. the kid came outta nowhere and looked like a real life varsity debater at the end of the year.

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: "well, at least we know he's not gonna run baudrilliard" - dana, shortly after the 1AC in finals at westside than involved 7:30 of baudrilliard preempts and 0:00 of advantages. immediately following dana's comment, the 1NC read baudrilliard.

 

Hottest debater: yikes. danger will robinson. danger.

 

Favorite judge (and why): sam timme. he's brilliant, and my homie.

 

Debater with the most potential: This is a strange question. in terms of "rising star" sorta potential, ya gotta give the shout out to ryan and shane. however, i don't want to exclude ian and david from having a lot of amount of potential simply because they're already doing well.

 

Best partnership: lias and ashley. :D

 

Most Untopical case: the gatekeeper.

 

Best negative position: Heart Of Darkness Colonialism

 

 

Funniest off case position you saw: bartelby

 

Funniest thing you stumbled upon while researching: i didn't do any research this year. it was awesome.

least favorite tourney: blake. fucking car.

 

Scariest Debater: bruce banner.

 

Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: ian/dana/aj

 

Best non-debate experience/event at a debate tourney this year: socializing at the richardson's after westside.

Most likely to be a debate coach:

Most likely to graduate and judge ALL the time:

i think these two questions are dumb.

 

Senior you’ll miss the most: carly and ashley. granted, they didn't debate together as a team this year but i still saw both of them around and they're the last team i coached/the only seniors i really knew personally this year.

His name's Andy Specht and I don't know exactly where it came from but someone (Ian?) called him that and it stuck because Britt and I could never agree on whether his name was Andy or Alan (I won, :))

 

Most Underrated debater: Andy from LH

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: "Eat ketchup, stop diarrhea" - Ian judging novice finals at Squashfest and again at Millard North.

 

Favorite judge (and why): Either Josh or Brent. They both make good decisions and they joke around with the us during rounds which makes me feel more relaxed and in turn produces better speeches.

 

Debater with the most potential: Shane from MW

 

Best partnership: Nick/Zack from Westside - they're always a lot of fun to debate and be around :)

 

Most Untopical case: Withdraw all aid

 

Best negative position: T. Fuck Nietzsche.

 

Funniest off case position you saw: Dildos PIC

 

Funniest thing you stumbled upon while researching: The picture and caption that accompanies this article.

 

Favorite tourney: Dowling

Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: Ian/Wike/Josh

 

Best non-debate experience/event at a debate tourney this year: CARIBOU COFFEE IN MINNEAPOLIS. :) Yummy.

Senior you’ll miss the most: All of the seniors :( Mostly Lisa, Ashley, Nick and Zack.

Just to clear up the confusion... Aspec is Andy Specht from Lincoln High. The "t" in his last name is silent. After I learned this factoid I began calling him "Aspec".

Most Underrated debater: Jenna (She went to Westside Mav and owned)

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: The entirety of my round 4 at State

 

Hottest debater:

 

Favorite judge (and why): Chris Young or AJ, sitting on a panel with them kicks ass.

 

Debater with the most potential: Chris and Dylan

 

Best partnership: Keri and Brittany, Ian and David, or Chris and Dylan

 

Most Untopical case: Withdrawal all aid from Africa (loved the case, but it was anti-topical)

 

Best negative position: Honestly, I don't know. I was in novice, PF and LD most of the year.

 

Funniest off case position you saw: The PIC for Westside's Districts case

 

Funniest thing you stumbled upon while researching: Definitely the "phallic objects" stuff.

 

Favorite tourney: Dowling or State

Most Underrated debater: Jenna (MS) or Ryan K (Norfolk)

 

Funniest thing said in round (quote and person) you were in: "Is a Banana considered 'penis shaped'"? ~Nick Tanner and Jenna's reply, "No, it's banana shaped!" State penis shaped objects CP round agaisnt Sex Toys aff.

 

Favorite judge (and why): Either AJ or Cole Williams. AJ is super crazy and always has positive feedback. He can tell you what you should have done, could have done, and always keeps everything very constructive. Cole on the other hand, doesn't give a shit of what you think when he talks. He'll tell you what he thinks, which is really cool even if it isn't constructive. If something doesn't make sense IE: gender violence with lesbians in Sex Toys aff, he'll point it out to you and ask you what you were thinking. He always has really cool, crazy ideas and he will be greatly missed on the circuit.

 

Debater with the most potential: Dan Wilcox (Norfolk) Shane (MW)

 

Best partnership: Nick/Zack from Westside - They always work really well together and have so much fun. I don't think there are any better partners on the circuit.

Best negative position: Borders or Custerfuck of Shit was a favorite for awhile.

 

Funniest off case position you saw: Dildos PIC or stoicism

least favorite tourney: Every tourney that Me + partner (or myself) got passed over by a MS team. OR Blake

 

Scariest Debater: Ashley

 

Funniest Debater/Coach/Judge: Nick/Dana/Zack B.

 

Best non-debate experience/event at a debate tourney this year: playing egyptian rat fuck at state. Or illegal things

 

Worst Strategic Choice (in round): Not answering the Kritik that wasn't in the 2nr. Or not making Chris Young flow when I answered T that wasn't in the 2nr!!! I still answered it, Chris!

 

Most likely to be a debate coach: Brittany and Nick

 

Most likely to graduate and judge ALL the time: Since people already know that I'm coming back next year, I will not pick myself. Probably Nick and Zach.

 

Senior you’ll miss the most: Nick and Zach. Pretty much all of the MS crew as well, yes Ashley Morgan is included in that.
