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!

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!
