Pro Debate: “Debate Realness with a Twist” vs Edebate Allstars

Posted in Beating K Affs, Ks on the Aff, UDLs, Video with tags , , , , on March 2, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

Here is a fantastic round between “Debate Realness with a Twist” (Rashad Evans and Deven Cooper) on the aff and the Edebate Allstars (Mike Hester and Jsharp) on the neg. This round is probably the closest that the Allstars had but they still won the debate on a 2-0. This is definitely a must-see round. Thanks to all the participants and the Bay Area UDL for putting on the tournament.

Pro Debate: Iola and Zehring vs Hester and Jsharp

Here the Allstars go neg against a Sam Iola and Jake Zehring (aka JZ according to Jim Schultz), seen here as “don’tthinkwecare,” on the nuclear weapons topic. Here is a great example of how to beat “out-there” K affs without evidence. If that idea is blowing you mind, you definitely have to watch this! The Allstars also won this debate on a 2-0.

A Must See Pro Round: Hester and Jsharp vs Oklahoma CJ

Posted in Ks on the Aff, UDLs, Video with tags , , , , on February 28, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

This comes from the professional debate tournament put on by the Bay Area Urban Debate League last year between CEDA and the NDT. Special thanks go to BAUDL and all the participants (Conor Cleary, Blake Johnson, Mike Hester, and JSharp). This was a great event and the rounds of the “Edebate Allstars” are some of the most watchable debates I have ever caught on film. The Edebate Allstars would win this debate on a 2-0. Love this conspiracy aff!

The Non-Trad Showdown

Posted in Battles, camp, College, Ks on the Aff, lectures, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2010 by Scott Odekirk

Featuring ISU OD (Odekirk and Dunn), two debate coaches who learned their style at Idaho State, on the affirmative. Also featuring Fullerton NW (Nielson and Ward), two current debate coaches who developed their style while debating together at Cal State Fullerton. What happens when two non traditional K teams face eachother? This is the question asked by this showdown which has become a regular aspect of the Gonzaga Debate Institute curriculum. This showdown was moderated (quite well) by Professor Sam Mauer who is the Director at Emporia State University. Enjoy! Thanks to all the participants (many of which are authors on this site) and a special thanks to the GDI for making it all possible.
