2. Best Champ team - McClung/Wizig- Although i am inclined to say goosen and shultz for winning KCKCC, i watched them lose to khalif/waldman and they never really showed themselves at a tourney other than KCKCC. McClung and Wizig overall did best on the National Circuit

 

I'm pretty sure Goosen and Shultz broke at Colleyville also, and while McClung/Wizig may be the best champ team next year, I think WARU GS takes it this year since they didn't spend much time on the circuit, and when they were there they did well.

 

21. Most likely to be NDT champion - Someone who isnt from Kansas

 

I don't think you should jump to that, there could be some sleepers in Kansas who come to form in college, hell two Kansas kids just won the NDT. It just depends if someone goes into college with a vengence, heh.

8. Best Negative Team - Khalif/Waldman- its rumored they only dropped like 4 neg rounds all year and i hit them against there HEIDEGGER(McWhorter) K and it was devastating. And although Waldmans Investor Con was a joke apparently it picked up rounds a lot

 

Wasn't it just the one the KU camp put out?

 

12. Fastest Debater - Jimmy Khalif. Despite his partner being slow he made up for it

 

I heard from at least a couple of people that Waldman got faster than him at the end of the year, but maybe they're mistaking.

Id heard that too. Dean told me that Waldmans 2NC was too fast to flow at Thigh in semis but i didnt believe him. Maybe its true. I wonder how Khalif/Waldman will do next year. What crazy arguments do you think they will break out

I was judging that round and I say nay. It wasn't hard to flow.
