CEDA Question

Recommended Posts

1. It costs money to be a part of CEDA

2. The tournament is just before the NDT, which those teams (and most every team) agree is better competition/more important and they would rather spend the weekend prepping for that.

3. Most of the teams mentioned (ej. NW, UM, Gtown) tend to be heavily policy focused and hence are structurally disadvantaged at CEDA as the tournament is now because it predominantly consists of non-traditional styles of debates. That means most of the judges are brought by those schools and therefore are more privy to/versed in those types of arguments.

All of this but the top one, college teams don't care about money.

True in most instances, especially with the schools mentioned.
