Put me on the email chain: sandwiches95@gmail.com (yes I know).

TLDR I debate at Wichita State in college. I am a junior. I'm more of a policy person. I will vote on framework, I will vote for an aff without a plan. Probably more willing than most to listen to cheating neg strategies but I don't like process counterplans.

CFL/ NSDA notes. I went to both of these tournaments when I was in high school and realize there are good odds you, the other team, me, and the other judge(s) all have different opinions on how debate works. I will be receptive to whatever you want to do but I will always be flowing and make my decisions off of my flow. If you wanna make this a stock issues debate do it but I am gonna need you to outline how I should evaluate the debate because it won't be my default. The least helpful paradigm statement of "you do you but do it well" applies.

I ended up judging a lot of CJR debates and all I can really say is that the big affs are really cool and I think soft left affs are getting really boring. I tend to render decisions quickly and talk a lot after. Interrupt me if you have a question or I made you mad.

I debated at Kapaun Mt. Carmel (2018) in high school. I've been a 2n my whole career. I primarily research and read policy stuff.

They/Them

- I try to hold myself to the same standard I expect out of judges when I am debating. I care a lot about debate and think it's an amazing activity. I cannot promise that I will always make the best decision, but I can promise that I will put as much effort as possible into that decision. Debates are hard and stressful and I don't think that asking a lot of questions constitutes "charging the mound." I get frustrated with decisions too and will do my best to help you work through that but at some point you just end up burning a lot of your own energy on something you cannot change. I won't take a post round personally.

- Read your framing page, but please answer the DA too. You can ignore the whole framing/ case mess that inevitably arises in the 2ar if you just strait turn the disad.

- If you clip you lose. If I catch it and the other team doesn't say anything I will still vote against you.

Disads

-Politics - Big fan. These debates, at their best, are usually about evidence quality. Strait turns are underrated - this goes for all DAs

Counterplans

- Mixed thoughts about judge kick. It’s probably fine but just please say it in the block

T

- Not a huge fan of T debates. I am not saying don’t go for it but I get very bored of judging the same T cards all year that no one agrees on the meaning of. Good debates are still good

Theory

- Anything but condo is a reason to reject the argument. I think condo is good but 2nrs get away with murder when “answering” condo

Ks vs policy affs

- I think 80% of the time when I vote for the K it is because I think it turns case.

- Really blippy framework debates bother me and if it’s a wash I usually just let the aff have the aff.

- perms are an aff argument. They can solve a lot of links.

K affs

Framework

- fairness is an argument and it can win debates. More of a clash person and not really a big “learning about the government good” person. I think we should learn about the government but I find it strategically underwhelming as an argument – it usually requires you to have already won case.

- I really do think about these debates in terms of competing interpretations. I like an idea of what the aff model looks like. This means that both teams should constantly be trying to illustrate what happens under their model AND their opponent's. I have certainly voted aff when they don’t extend a counter interp but I think that it will still increase the odds you lose tremendously.

K v K

- Not a great judge for these debates. I might know about both of your literature bases but probably will be clueless about how they interact. Obviously going for cap is fine.

- Framework arguments are always helpful
