Info on myself:

I debated for 4 years in high school (graduated 2017) where I debated at state and nationals. This is my third year as an assistant coach for Annie Goodson at Blue Valley West.

General:

IMPORTANT: Read as fast as you want, but slow down on tags, cites, and blocks so I can get them on the flow. Your analytical arguments need to be this slow as well, and if you're firing standards on T at me at the same speed as when you read a card I am not going to get them all. Just because you can read your pre-written blocks about limits and grounds at 8,000 wpm doesn't mean I can flow them that fast. This is all especially true during zoom debate.

I think a lot of debaters get caught up in making sure they have a card to answer every single argument, and that isn't always necessary. Using your brain and making smart analytical arguments that are as warranted out as possible needs to happen more in debate.

If you are toxic the ballot will reflect that, and if you're enough of a jerk you might lose the round just because of that.

Argumentation:

Topicality- I default to competing interpretations. If you are going for T you need to have impacted out reasons why your interp is better. Like I said above, slow down on those short arguments on T that I need to get on my flow. Affs don't necessarily have to read a plan text.

Case, Disadvantages, and Counterplans- I think case debate is very important to winning debates and good case debate shows that you are very knowledgeable about the topic. I wish more negative teams would debate case with more than just a couple defensive arguments and a bad case turn. Affs should have evidence that actually says what the tag says it does and has warrants. Not enough affirmative teams do impact calc early enough. Please don't read trash disadvantages (most of which can be answered by like two analytical arguments from the aff). The aff should ask some hard questions of the negative's disad link chain just like the neg should ask hard question of the aff's. Counterplans are fine, do whatever.

Is Joe Biden really going to save us from global warming?

The K- I am not a K expert, so I probably won't understand as many of the big abstract words as you want me to. I am generally willing to listen to K's as I have learned more about them in the past couple years. I think some 1ac's might need to answer hard questions about why they chose to make small incremental changes to the system.
