  1. Grapevine is in 3 weeks don't you all have prep to be doing
  2. we should just count homestead mw as a texas team
  3. Rankings are always whack but fr y'all did woodlands dirty. Quarters at Berkeley and semis at TFA after going 6-0 (beating Hendrickson GS, LASA CU twice, and Jesuit GN) is a pretty big deal. They're really good debaters who've beaten some really good teams - they should probably be tied for 4 or something with Hendrickson. This is honestly pretty hard to do well because we've never seen half these teams debate each other (ie. LASA CU not hitting the majority of these teams). I think these teams are 100% the top 10 teams in Texas.
  4. I'll have my obvious biases, as I do go to coppell, but I think the top 10 teams in Texas right now are 1. Greenhill AE 2. Coppell DR 3. Hendrickson GS 4. Jesuit HM/Highland Park ML 5. Westwood BS 6. Greenhill LW 7. Woodlands RM 8. Kinkaid HK 9. LASA CU 10. Jesuit HT/St Marks RV I really don't want to take time to justify myself for all of these, but these are my thoughts rn.
  5. Bump. Does anyone feel like rankings have changed after hockaday?
  6. UwU a wild shreyas appeared
  7. I'm from a pretty privileged school - I go to Coppell, whatever. I still think disclosure is good and people should do their best to disclose. But there's a lot of things that make it hard for me to warrant disclosure to the extent I do it. I don't have to go put up my cites on my neg wiki, or fill out a complete round report - but I do it because I think its good for debate. My problem with disclosing is other schools not doing their fair share of it. I go to bigger locals like UNT or Plano, but on the off weekends where I go to smaller locals where nobody discloses, I have no incentive to disclose outside of the fact that its good for community norms. I still do it and send stuff before the round and send email chains to people, but it's coming to a point where I know if I disclose more stuff or if I agree to send speech docs people read against me, I will 100% be seeing the same stuff read against me, and its not something I want to incentivize. A lot of people have been extremely good about disclosure, like the more relevant local teams like Athens and NL, and I think its becoming better for norms in this community.
  8. I really think ur right in this regard - NL is p good about emailing you back with stuff, and either ways you've probably already hit them on the dallas circuit
  9. i'm editing this out
  10. RT @tejasspeech: "Zack from Coppell is honestly one of the best debaters around. His afro puts the afro in afro-pessimism"

  11. RT @remingtonsosa: Remember when Donald Trump won the election and everyone was racist and I tweeted and Fox News did a segment and Jasso g…
