    Kickapoo

    (K)Ev(a/i)n will be running Teach for America.... I'm hoping to see some good rounds, so everyone prep hard. Good luck.
  2. A couple more unofficial results...they recognize the top 14 in each main event, but we had a couple just shy of that I will mention: Thomas Fritts and Allyson Strickland from Glendale got 15th in PF, and Kevin Satzinger from Kickapoo got 16th in IX. Egotism maybe, but FYI nonetheless. Go MO, especially Omar...there were 4 Missourians in Top 30 IX, and we all channeled our extemp energy to Omar in sems and finals.
  3. Naw, I wasn't calling all DAs "non-unique fool arguments." The non-unique fool arguments are the DAs that are skull-smackingly non-unique, in that they should link to literally any increase in aid, yet the US increased aid to Africa after their evidence was written. Does that make more sense?
  4. This is an interesting passage from a NYT article. The paragraph is about what cap-and-trade and carbon taxes would do in general terms. It cuts both ways.
  5. I don't have a quarrel with Neosho stemming from this round. The 2AR was not like the "China will kill me when they strike us because we don't have a Space Force--I'm a firstborn!" I experienced once last year. But I am still in denial, I think, about the decision. How can a 1AR without a word answering on-case offense, only arguing defense on T and a no-link on the DA, possibly win? Even if the coach who didn't like "Andersen 97" etc. could have then pretended that we didn't read evidence from authors, and it was just an analytical turn...they still conceded it completely. And they didn't make an argument that we should be voted down for our method of citation. I am most disturbed by the part in the RFD of that ballot, "I am probably the squirrel vote.... I guess I am making my statement for credibility...." Before State, I didn't prepare for extemp nearly as much as I should have, and I gave an "eh" speech in finals...this was supposed to light a fire under me to get me to prep really hard for nationals so I can do well in extemp. But what if I don't cite the evidence properly, or do something else the judge doesn't like that I couldn't predict and is a common, fair practice in the event? It is disheartening.
  6. I don't want to foment the chaos, but the affirmative was landmines with water and agriculture advantages an funding being taken from "United States Aid to Egypt." The negative was T-Public Health, DA-Aid to Egypt key to relations, Mid-East peace, Stable oil prices, Decreasing terrorism, and making tanks, some solvency barriers and an Agriculture Bad turn involving the environment and fertilizer runoff. 2AC answered everything, spiked out of DA by saying they don't cut military aid. 2NC took DA and Case, 1NR took T. 1AR spent 3:15 on T (just comparing interps) and 0:45 on DA (continuing spikeout)...and 0:00 on case. 2NR spends 0:20 extending T in case someone was into it, 2:20 on DA (continuing "Aid to Egypt" being cut is military aid, extending conceded impact analysis), 0:45 on case discussing drops, the rest concluding and asking them not to consider 2AR arguments. 2AR specific time allocation was not paid attention to, but about 2:30 was on T discussing the purpose of T and how since there's been clash that means they're topical, 0:30 about how new in the 2AR is fine since Kevin dropped T in the 2NC and Bonnie dropped everything else in the 1NR, 1:00 on how terrible landmines are but not specific answers to negative attacks. Overall I would say I am disappointed in how the judging turned out. One of the Aff votes: "Bonnie, don't say 'Gosten 01' 'Gutman 08' - I want full cite. Evidence probably strong, but I don't know who these people are. This leaves me w/ your analyticals, which are really good, but you need to credibility of your evidence as well. Bonnie + Kevin, you are both awesome speakers, and in many ways this was a nearly perfect neg attack, but by not properly citing sources, you severely hurt credibility. Just T in 1NR - I like the guts it takes to do this, but again, you attack their source (good idea) but you didn't----OK, now you gave me author qualifications on the T. RFD: I am probably the squirrel vote, bc in with proper citing, the Egypt D/A would have been devastating and the attacks on Ad's would have pulled through. I partially bought the T (infinite expansion but no CP ground) by neg, but it was well defended by aff. So I guess I am making my statement for credibility, which I know the neg understands, but has gotten out of the habit of doing." T. Martin, Camdenton coach, final round, MSHSAA state debate tournament, 4/19/08, 4:35 pm, Memorial Union Room S110, yellow paper. The other one just seemed like a lay based on the ballot. She didn't buy T, which is cool, and she said "Egpyt Disad was a close call - really close debate," which I mean whatever, but no discussion of conceding the case in the 1AR, which I thought the 2NR made pretty evident. The Neg vote wasn't big on T because it was undercovered in the 2NR, and he didn't think the DA was developed enough. He voted on the concession of case turns out of the 1AR and lack of 2AR argumentation. Anyone who watched the round who wants to corroborate or dispute this representation of the round...feel free; this is America.

    College

    Looks like I'm rolling up to Truman State. I'm sorry Nick and Lauren about not getting up in Chicago, but scrilla is killa. I'm doing band my freshman year, but I'll consider jumping in on some forensics action sophomore year.

    So I guess I'll post some fairly complete results of outrounds. Thanks to everyone I got to debate...all the outrounds were very fun. Except having to debate your own teammates, but that's MSHSAA I guess? Quarters Greenwood A def. Greenwood B (2-1) Nixa A def. Central A (?-?) Central B def. Nixa B (?-?) Kickapoo A def. Kickapoo B (?-?) Sems Greenwood A def. Nixa A (?-?) Kickapoo A def. Central B (3-0) Finals Kickapoo A def. Greenwood A (2-1)
  11. Well, as you might note, I was actually the original poster of that particular thread. I have the WNDI file from that, but unfortunately that only has the September/October LD topic files, while Whitman released evidence about the other 2007-2008 topics. I was wondering if someone had that evidence and would offer it? Thanks so much.
  12. It's going to be a one-week turnaround between the release of the March/April topic (2/1) and the time I have to debate it. I'm in a squeeze because I'm continuing to debate Policy at the next tournament and our state qualifying tournament. I have the Whitman/WNDI 2007 evidence for Policy, but does anyone have the files about LD? Thanks for any help!
  13. Does anyone have some links to briefs/blocks/cards that argue utilitarianism is bad, or articles I could read and cut myself? Thanks for any help!
  14. Michigan Classic did. Did any others?
  15. Anyone care to explain how this works in the debate? It appears that it already passed?
