These were two of my favorite teams last year! I really enjoyed seeing how much work Liberty put in all year at getting better and was overjoyed to see them do so well at the end of the season. Thanks to all the participants (Beth Mendenhall, Derek Ziegler, Eddie Fitzgerald, and Benjamin Hagwood). K State would go on to win this debate and the rest of the tournament.

2011 CEDA Quarters: The Rematch! Kansas KQ Breaks a New Aff Against Towson CK!

Posted in Beating K Affs, College, elimination round, Video with tags , , , on April 18, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

This could be the debate of the tournament! Thanks to both teams, I enjoyed judging Kansas and Towson all year. Sean Kennedy and [deleted] from Kansas were on a roll throughout the tournament and beat Towson in the prelims (see it here). And so a large crowd began to gather to see how Ben Crossan and Fernando Kirkman from Towson would respond. Ben seemed like he was an intense trance before the round, and he only lightly prepped until right before the round. I was later told by a member of the Towson coaching staff that he had be thinking about this debate for over a month. Towson would go on to win this debate on a 3-0. Decisions included. Don’t miss the 2nr.

This was one of the top rounds at the tournament and I really enjoyed judging it. Thanks to all the particpants, Ben Crossan & Fernando Kirkman from Towson and Sean Kennedy & [deleted] from Kansas. I particularly thought that Sean Kennedy (the 2n) was very impressive in this debate. This round would be rematched in the quarters, look for that soon!

Posted in College, elimination round, Video with tags , , , , on April 5, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

This was one of the best debates I saw all year and I felt honored to judge it. Thanks to all the participants, LaToya Williams-Green & Ryan Wash for Emporia and R.J. Giglio & Nick Watts for Oklahoma. I have judged both of these teams a ton throughout the course of their careers and I have to say that they do things the right way. Enjoy. This round is a must see. I was particularly blown away by the 2nc. The panel would decide this debate in favor of Oklahoma on a 4-1.
