    (1) Emory HW v (16) Cal BP this round should be epic.

    NDT 2008

    Where did you hear this from? And by dropped, do you literally mean did not breath a word on it, or they just didn't do a good job answering?

    True, but statistically the odds still aren't in the copeland winners favor.

    Congrats to Cal BP for winning copeland award - unfortunately the curse of the copeland award will strike as it always does, meaning cal BP can no longer win the NDT.
  10. Why don't you just clear up whatever misconceptions are going on with this thread. I agree, a lot of people are trivializing/misinterpreting your args in rounds.. just set us straight I'm not trying to be clever/sarcastic. I've debated you before and I think your arguments are really interesting and worth discussing in forums like this in an accurate manner.
  11. How would Towson know what judges Ft Hays struck?
  12. Most definitely, I think they only broke at one tourny the entire year (Richmond). Huge accomplishment, gives a lot of people hope!
  13. I'm a varsity debater for Liberty University, and our season has wound down. I'm available for cutting files that you might need for upcoming HS tournaments (I have access to all the standards, Lexis, ebsco, etc) . Payment is negotiable, feel free to contact me for more info. sjdillard@liberty.edu
  14. I agree with Ross - we've both debated Towson, and no, Towson doesn't do a perfect line-by-line in your face kind of style, nor do they try to. Part of their charm to judges is that they can take a wholistic view of rounds and explain things very well without the need to "answer" every single argument on the flow. And like Ross said, part of what they critique is our style of debate. If you just try and do traditional debate against them and say "they dropped this, they didn't answer my number 3 subpoint a" you're going to lose. Much much much congratulations to Towson, obviously a HUGE victory for them, and I'm sure they worked incredibly hard to get there. So were they still running the black aesthetic at CEDA?
  15. Anyone have anymore updates on what the heck Towson was doing at this tournament?

    So Brian the Hobo has managed to become the #2 overall on the forum with his impressive 3 time #1 positions. Just noticed though, all of these were achieved on the same day and one of the scores was achieved at 19:36 and the other at 19:39. Either this is some kind of glitch or Brian The Hobo is one heck of a curveball player by getting 98,000 points in 3 minutes. My apologies if these are actually legitimate.

    I'm not sure about your first question, in terms of if you're eligible. I think the answer to it is yes, as long as you have a coach, though. There's always places for you to travel, tournaments happen everywhere. there's a huge tournament at Wake Forest at the beginning of every year for team debate which shouldn't be too far from you. Keep an eye out on this forum for tournaments in your area. You should know that NC hasn't had a policy division for a long time... they tried it but it died. And it it's going to be difficult, but it will be possible to compete in NFL. Just be aware it's not what you're used to. Obviously, much quicker more technical debate. It would help if you went to a summer camp that could teach you. I go to Liberty University and I've judged a lot of homeschool tournaments. I couldn't imagine most of those kids moving onto NFL style debate, but if you're willing to work for it, I encourage you
  18. I can judge at GDS if anyone needs judging.
  19. I'm available for half a commitment to wake early bird. email - sjdillard@liberty.edu or PM me. Edit - My commitments been sold. Good luck everyone at the tournament.
