  1. Reccomendation: A couple years ago, we shipped our tubs to Dallas w/ UPS, and we flew down. There were no problems, and they were already there at the hotel when we arrived. If you're driving, you still could do this too.
  2. This is a horrible card. It has no warrants or explanations at all, just a bunch of claims...i'm hoping this card was posted in jest, because you can't seriously think its good
  3. What are some good analytical arguments to make, and does anyone know of or have good generic carded responses to winners win, basically that it is not true, or is overrated, etc. thanks
  4. Yeah this round is GBN v. RHSM Nick & Evan v. SMW If GBN wins, then finals is set since they are undefeated still, but there will be another round before finals if they lose this round. Best of Luck to Nick and Evan; you guys seem to have been doing a hell of a job. Way to represent for Missouri; would love it if you guys made finals.
  5. you debate in missouri: learn to adapt
  6. Borders/Shapiro is one of the first things that comes to my mind.
  7. it didnt exist on the civil liberties topic, and that was never really a huge issue, so no
  8. yeah, i may have been pissed reading some of this stuff, but i def am not letting what Dylan said affect my day or something-it's just really annoying to come on here and see extremely unwarranted, false, and stupid shit said on here that involves me-i dont post on here a whole whole lot-so sometimes i feel a response is necessary.
  9. -i dont normally get mad at people, but dude, that judge, was A. homophobic when we ran DADT-it was quite clear on the ballot, because it didnt mention any real issues in the round, not like there were any to begin with B. the judge, was an interp. coach, of a supposed "circuit team", chesterton, that really isn't that great. C. did you not see the flow. im sorry, but we kicked the shit out of you guys when all you made was two T's and a bunch of analytics where we had several page blocks to each argument, and the 1NR totally repeated the 2NC. D. Plus, you guys flowed sideways on ur paper, nuff said.
  10. beyond just debate itself, i know that there are many qualified college judges in Missouri, but another part of the problem is that alot of former decent debaters from Missouri lack the ability to come back and judge because of college. Alot are only home for breaks, and there are usually only a small handful of oppurtunities to judge then. granted tho, the bigger issue is with the often undeserved,bad reputation given to college debaters by alot of the coaching community and some of the debate community as well, but i think that the judging pool might improve if it was just easier and more feasible for those going to college outside of MO to come back, it's just one of those problem that really has no solution; these people just need to be encouraged to judge when they can during breaks.
  11. LAMEST THREAD EVER. Dylan, why would u threaten someone with violence on a debate forum-wtf, honestly get some sense here. As offended as you may be by Sharon's opinion, dont respond back with OH I'LL KILL YOU-makes you look stupid. Also, when did a Pville team ever legitimately beat Matt and I last year-we hit Pattonville at least 10 times last year, and I only recall one loss in which ANWR politics was straight up conceded in 2AC-but we then beat your other two teams in Sems and Finals to win that same tournament. Even the year before then when i sucked, I lost to Pattonville twice the whole year. And, even if Pville had some wins against "the better teams" you have to look at your school's overall record against those teams, and against matt and I, it was about 1-12. I don't have a problem with Pattonville in general, and for the most part, I like several of the people currently on the squad-but when you make comments like you have on this thread, that are simply a ton of BS and generally ignorant, it gives you and your whole team/squad a bad reputation-which isnt deserving. Sharon, although you may disagree with him, is entitled to his own opinion, and Sharon, i realize that this kid is annoying you-but honestly, you dont have to respond to him, it's probably not even worth a response, but i guess when you get fed up you have to say somthing. Just let him talk his talk-it's inconsequential.
  12. downtown Stl may be dangerous, but the suburbs/West County are still safe, affluent, and a good place to live.
  13. thx for the input everyone, that was all more along the lines of what i was looking for.
  14. i dont think that answers it tho, i mean, thats the argument you can and probably should make that fiat assumes implementation, but i want arguments beyond that i guess, besides the whole counter interp. counter standards
  15. Im wondering if anyone knows of some carded answers to E Spec-as far as like about what implementation or enforcement actually means or about policy making also, what do you think are some of the better analytics to make here besides counter interping and answering ground loss/predictability/education.
  16. yeah i would agree with you here that if you wanting to travel for a tournament, it's better to go to a texas or chicago/illinois tournament-tho Mizzou will have good judging and decent competition-it's always been a good tournament-despite being kinda small-it has good potential to be a larger tournament, as far as for Missouri teams goes.
  17. I think you have a weird definition of legit. we had lay judging at parkview last year and one of our better qualified judges nuked our speaker ranks when we won the round, cuz we were too good and beat the crap out of this team when we didnt have to.
  18. Dude, you dont know keegan's situation. his problem is not being able to hack it cuz he lacks talent or isn't good at debate, cuz thats a lie. He doesn't have a partner good enough or even willing enough to debate nat circuit, that's kind of a problem, at least in my opinion. Also, dont make fun of him for spelling errors, he's dyslexic.
  19. QFA, if you wanna "prove yourself" on the circuit, go to the Glenbrooks
  20. Kev speaks the truth-i was his partner that round.

    Yeah i agree. When we taught our novices last year, we started with stocks and disads, as well as T and then just covered the basics of CP's and K's. And then we moved on to policy making and impacct calculus. But i dont think this demo debate is a big deal-whoever potential novs are just need to understand that debate is not like that when you start-but dont tell them that debate can never be like that.

    QFA-like the demo debate is supposed to the basics-kev is esp. right when he says you dont have to speed in 1AR to win-just pull through strategic and winning args. and group where possible. Plus, who cares if you lose the demo debate and dont answer everything-it's not the end of the world
  23. Jason why do you have to make ad hom attacks on people who you dont even really know. Allison is a great coach who deserves respect for how much work she does and has done for debate in St. Louis and in Iowa.
  24. Ok, fx T is not about steps. It's about looking to solvency for topicality. For example: if a team runs a dont ask don't tell aff, their plan text may just repeal dont ask dont tell. They will say that repealing will get ppl to join the military, but the plan itself wouldnt increase service-ppl may or may not enlist-plan doesnt guarantee that. If you can prove that the case is T on face, do that, otherwise just put defense on their standards, indict the def.-that in round type stuff. I would just use some generic answers- 1. No voter-Look to in round abuse-no harm no foul 2. if you have a moral ob. says we outweigh or that policy makers look to X issue first-as long as we're reasonably topical and we can have a decent debate, then look to this ob. before T
