I've seen quite a few Texas debaters on this site lately - so, who qualified for UIL State this year?

Unfortunately, me. Since I'm being forced to go, I'm going to aim for late elimination rounds I guess.

I wonder if I actually understand half the arguments I go for, or if judges are just confused and think I'm right because I sound confident in my explanation...

And yes by the way, I DO have a Michigan KM tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies eyes only. And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 outround wins of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

I hope you are right. They were pretty good competition last time we debated, and +1 that I got scouted by Kate Richey from Texas that round.

 

Edit: worth mentioning that Hendrickson is a 6A team.

why does 6a matter

Because this is a UIL thread. 6A schools debate in 6A division, while 5A schools only debate other 5A schools in 5A division. Therefor, Hendrickson could be the best team in Texas and they would still never affect LASA's chance, Lindale's chance, or my chance of breaking and succeeding in elims. 

 

Are you from outside of Texas, or are you at a private school such as Greenhill?

Looks like I'll be judging for the tournament this year - at least, on the 1A-3A days. 4A-6A remains to be seen. Maybe I'll see some of you around?

School admins and board members think UIL is important. Gotta sell your soul in some stock debates in order to get funding for bid tournaments.
