  1. (Insert high pitch squeal here)!!!! So, who's going?
  2. I agree. A case list would probably be a good thing for Michigan debate and help the state have better debates. I was wondering how much we want to model the the college case list. For example, in college cites are only posted after that position is read in round (ie broke). Also, in college, teams scout and ask other teams for cites after the round. I was wondering what the Michigan debate community thought about getting cites after round. I have never seen it happen, and wonder whether or not people thought this is an acceptible practice here in Michigan.
  3. Claim: This is what your argument is (i.e. trade solves wars) Warrant: This is why your argument is true (i.e. trade causes nations to become interconnected, which means that the nations would be bad fo both nations if they went to war).
  4. This should help... http://www.planetdebate.com/textbooks/view/8
  5. If you are going to be in the same building of the SDI, the SDI is in Hubbard hall, which is on the East side of campus.
  6. From the University of Chicago's T file (http://ceda-ndt.uchicago.edu/Tstandards.doc) Note - not the best arguments ever, you may want to revise a little (not like a RVI is a good argument either) AT: T is a RVI 1. Ha ha ha - that’s funny 2. Assumes abuse - we’re not being abusive, don’t punish us b/c they’re not topical 3. shifts focus - don’t deter us from criticizing their theoretical position, if its crappy lets talk about it, not slap us for asking 4. Don’t punish the messenger - You don’t kill the College Board if I get a 0 on the SAT, nor if I pass it. T is a test, if you pass hurray, don’t get angry though 5. No time tradeoff - They would have had to answer disads and case arguments for the time the 2ac spent on t. 6. Courtroom analogy - The judge doesn’t let the criminal go free just because she makes it to the right room 7. Perm - Vote against the affirmative for sucking our time, cuz I actually answered this trash 8. Their fault - they didn’t need to answer the violation so much 9. My fault - I just answered it, that remedies the time loss 10. Credibility - If I’m running alot of crap, you’ve already lost all kinds of ‘sect for me, that’s recompense enough, stupid 1nc strat...
  7. Quarters Westminster JS v. Bishop Guertin CP Pace AL v. Kinkaid KS Fullerton GS v. Bellarmine VR Damien HE v. Glenbrook South TD
  8. Octos Bellermanie VR v. GBN MS Bishop Guertin v. Bronx Science Colleyville MN v. Fullerton Damien v. Woodward GBS TD v. Notre Dame Kinkaid v. Greenhill BL Pace v. Hays Westminster v. New Trier
  9. Usually the 16th and 17th have a run-off debate to see who goes against the 1st seed.
  10. According to bluetub TA ran SPS with a new plan text round 2.
  11. Cool...I think I will be able to attend then.
  12. Yes, you can probably run an oil dependence advantage with just about any Alternative energy, just as long as you are able to win that the plan causes enough alt. energy to trade-off with oil.
  13. Erik stopped before the Harvard tournament; he hasn't really given an offical reason why. However, he did come back and debate at the Northwestern Tournament with Sara Kirsch.
  14. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure they have to break to doubles, because of TOC rules. I think a team has to win at least one elim. round before they can get a bid.
  15. Do you want Corn-Ethanol Good or Corn-Ethanol Bad Harms?
  16. Usually, its both. In the 1NC, people usually read a generic link, like alt. energy drains political capital. Then in the Block, people read more specific links, like wind energy is unpopular.
  17. Some things you should do... Read a say no solvency deficit - basically saying Nation X doesn't like the plan and therefore the nation would say no in the consultation. This means the counterplan solves 0% of the affirmative. Read a delay solvency deficit - basically, consulting Nation X takes a very long time. This means that the impacts of the aff might happen before the plan is done. Say that US-X Nations relations are resilient. This is defense against the Net-Benefit to the CP, it helps you way solvency deficits against the Net-Benefit. Along the same lines, you could impact turn the Net-Benefit, by saying US-Z Nations' relations are bad. But, the other team will probably spread you out with the block if you do that. Hope this helps...
  18. Anybody know what happened in the other divisions? Thanks in Advance.
  19. Usually in round abuse refers to an argument that the other team makes that makes in impossible (or harder) for your team to compete. Teams make arguments to why that strategy or argument is unfair or hurts education. However, if there was violence in the round (ie punching) then you could make an argument as to why that team should lose the round.
  20. Another argument that you could be making against the referendum CP is a say "no" argument. Basically if you can win that the people will say no to the CP then the CP can't solve any of the case. You could also run a delay argument, saying that referendums take a long time and that your case impacts are very short-term. This means that the CP won't be able to solve the impacts of the case. (You would probably make these arguments against any consult or condition cp) Hope this helps
  21. You could read an interpretation of fiat that would say Obama would pass the plan. You could say that this is best because Congress won't pass a bill over the inarguration weekend, meaning that your interpretation is the most predictable. You could also make arguments (there are cards about this) that say that Obama seems to be in charge of the agenda already - stimulus bill, and thus what passes now will still effect Obama's capital. Hope this helps some.
  22. Is your picture of Jack Bouwer a clue? Like, was it like the 24 gas attack at the mall?
  23. See Pat, that's what FHC does, just sometimes they don't get to Zizek.
