The return of the Top 25 Coach's Poll:

Some programs have benefited from the positive PR generated by Coach's Polls in previous years. I am bringing it back in with that hope. Please consider participating--the results may not necessarily be helpful to your program, but they may well benefit others.

- The 1st team on each ballot receives 25 points; the 2nd receives 24 points; etc., until the 25th team receives 1 point. In case of ties, points for those spots will be evenly divided.
- I will accept one ballot per school, submitted by a coach. Please email your list to
- Your rankings will be private. However, I will publish an alphabetical list of schools that voted.
- You are welcome to rank your own teams for the sake of accuracy, but they will not receive points for your ballot.
- Each team’s total score will be divided by the number of voters eligible to rank it, so that no school is disadvantaged by voting.
- No school or college debate organization is undertaking this poll, and it should be understood that voters do not invest as much time as a voter for NDT at-large bids, etc.

I will accept ballots until Monday October 22nd at 9AM EST. I will publish later that day. There will be another poll conducted after the Wake Forest tournament.

You should take a second and show some love (or likes) to an (re)emerging program, the OTHER CPD, Columbia Policy Debate. They have re-instituted club status, have permission to travel, and just came back from their first tournament at Rutgers, taking home a couple of speaker awards, 2nd seed, and getting to sems. And that is without having a budget yet....

Hello all,

Georgetown Debate is pleased to announce that we will host a college tournament January 4th-6th, 2019. The tournament will have 8 rounds and (hopefully) all 3 divisions. We also plan to host a "D.C. Debate Alumni" reception to offer students the opportunity to meet and speak with former college debaters who now live and work in a variety of careers in the D.C. area. (More information on that event, likely to be held the evening before prelims begin, will be forthcoming.) Hotels and flights on these dates are astonishingly inexpensive.

Please note, this tournament is born largely from our inability to attend the Coast tournaments this year. We love and support our friends out West and hope to return there in the future.

We had a small, young group this year, so most of our efforts were skills based. The files we used for debates were small, largely rehashed. So, what we do have is freely available to all this year. You can find it at:
