  6. Just out of curiosity: I know reforms have been proposed in the past to make the pool smaller at DCI. With the largest number of competitors ever this year, are any of them being reconsidered?
  7. Homewood Flossmoor is in the radius.
  8. I know exactly what prelim rounds at NFL look like, since I was in round 10 of the NFL tournament last year. However, I didn't qualify this year, and there's nothing that I can do about that now except hope to create a good judging experience for future years. Although there were definitely things said during times of anger that should not have been said, this is a discussion between debaters and coaches about rules and regulations of the national forensic league qualifying tournament. There is nothing out of bounds or inappropriate about that, the only thing inappropriate here is ad hominem attacks to individual schools or debaters. We honestly hope that you succeed at NFL because that reflects well on all of us. Additionally, I will not apologize for entering a discussion about how to better Kansas debate.
  9. There's certainly something to be said about being a graceful loser, but we should hold winners to the same standard of respect. This forum was begun and conducted in an extremely respectful manner with actual ideas about the nature of how to best improve the experience of the qualifiers for everyone in Kansas debate. I also don't think it's fair to refer to the judging pools as "the same" since many talented judges were dispersed throughout different districts. We are very proud of our qualifiers, and we want to be able to take even more pride in the way that the system of qualification happens. If you can't respectfully contribute to the conversation, don't.
  10. It's recently come to light that a BVN team "intercepted" a laptop stand at the Blue Valley West tournament. If you lost a stand at BVW, let me know and I will make sure it gets back to you.
  11. BVN 15th seed is Molly Lindsey/Sophie Jerwick.
