Emory GJ vs Kansas KQ from the 2010 Shirley

Posted in beating Ks with a traditional aff, College, Video with tags , , , on December 8, 2010 by Scott Odekirk

Thanks to all the participants (Emory Ross Gordon & Rajesh Jegadeesh and Kansas Sean Kennedy & [deleted]). I feel pretty good about posting this Kansas loss to Emory on theory given that Kansas KQ would go one to win the Wake tournamnet in triumphant fashion. Little bit a of a “what not to do” lesson here. Maybe we can convince Sean to do a redo for the website!

A special thanks to both teams (Oklahoma RJ Giglio & Nick Watts and Harvard Eli Jacobs & Alex Parkinson) and Izak Dunn (puttingthekindebate.com author and Director of the Eastern Washington Debate Team). Also deb(k)ate would also like to thank Wake Forest for putting together another great tournament. Check back again over the next week for more debates from the Wake Tournament.
