  1. Hello cross-x community, I am going to attend SUNY-Buffalo next year to work on a PhD and wanted to find out any information about available jobs or programs in the area that could use coaching. If you have any contacts or information, please backchannel me (message on here, public email address on account info). A little info about me in case it's necessary: Graduating Gonzaga University with a BA in Political Science and Philosophy, minor in History. I will be studying at SUNY Buffalo but have a desire to keep coaching if at all possible. My qualifications are mostly in the area of policy (CX) style debate, but would be able and open to other formats (LD, Public Forum, Parliamentary). I've been the assistant coach at Mead High School (Spokane, WA) for four years and have contributed to all areas of the program, including the previous formats as well as Congress and Individual Events/Speech. I coached a team to an 11th place finish in Policy Debate at the 2011 NFL nationals, Qualified a team in 2010 and coached a team to a third place finish at state in 2011, among other successes. I also debated for Gonzaga for three years (recently placed a team in the top 5 regular season, Semis at the NDT). Any other info needed, please don't hesitate to ask. If you know of some schools in the region but don't have contact info, I would still appreciate a posted response with the name of the school active in High School Debate. Thanks, Andrew Myers

This is partially covered in note No. 1 about the South, but look at these No. 8 seeds: California, Texas, UNLV and ... Gonzaga? One of these things is not like the other. Hint: It's Gonzaga. Sure, the Bulldogs were badly beaten in their conference title game, thus making them an at-large bid at the committee's mercy. Sure, as with the bubble teams left out of the tournament, it's hard to feel too bad for any team that didn't handle its business in the closing stretches of the season. But Gonzaga, with an RPI of 36 and a nonconference record of 12-3 seems insanely underseeded here. That feeling is accentuated when you look at its peers on the No. 8 line. What makes the seeding even worse is that because the committee thought Duke deserved a higher No. 1 seed than Syracuse, the Dukies drew Cal, by far the most overseeded of the No. 8s, while the Cuse will play a talented, deep, athletic Bulldogs team led by an experienced tournament guard in Matt Bouldin. (Not to mention that Kansas might get UNLV and Kentucky could play a lifeless but undeniably talented Texas team.) Ouch. Also, Quality wins Outside a two loss conference record: Wisconsin, Cincinnati, (at) Illinois, (at) Memphis, Oklahoma, Davidson.
  3. 50 is a pretty low baseline, its realistically closer to 55. Additionally, I know teams last year that had 65+ winning percentages. Its really a matter of success i.e. if you get to quarters at Wake and occasionally break elsewhere and end up with a 55% win percentage, versus a team that never goes deep but has a inflated win percentage because of weaker regional tournaments, the former will commonly get the bid. Also you are right, there can only be 6 "Third teams" at the NDT. It gets messy when considering whether a squad's top team got a first round or not, etc.

  6. A. Don't print any files on GU computers unless you are paying for it at the library. All those printers are needed for current students and faculty taking summer classes. Seriously, don't dry out a printer when a senior may need to be printing their final essays. B. Obviously, the camp is pushing paperless, but if you still want printed files first, inform your lab leaders then email Brent (you can get that email from your lab leaders as well). Evidence for practice debates is actually being taken care of right now. If you are worried about evidence for the tournament, we are still offering to print it for less than it would cost for you do it. There will be a process explained via email before the tournament. C. Be smart with what you need printed. Turns out, having all the files printed isn't necessary if you're not going for case, capitalism or politics, they aren't necessary files to have printed. Also, if you like paperless but are worried, having just shells printed at the library works very well.
