Past Debate Rounds

 

Alex Zhao affirms vs. Lucas Clarke in front of Erik Legried. The 2NR goes for topicality. Decision is in favor of the affirmative. Here are some suggestions for redos: 1. Do Lucas's 2NR again but focus on giving more weighing and answers on the "you can read PICs if the aff is whole res" debate. 2. Try to give Lucas's speech in 5 minutes instead of 6. Push yourself to get faster and faster. 3. Do some impact weighing at the top that compares what's more important: limits or PICs? Make this weighing non-superficial.

 

 

Jack Wareham affirms vs. Alex Zhao. Debate comes down to Kant v Util and a link turn to the neg util offense. Decision is a 2-0 for the aff (Kumar, Castillo). Here are some suggestions for redos: 1. Cover the link turn in the 2NR and allocate time better on the various framework layers the 1ar has. Do weighing on which justifications are most important. 2. Give the same 1AR 45 seconds faster than Jack did and get out a "Phil PICs bad" shell.
