Japan's decision to ease its half-century old self-imposed arms export ban is a step forward in making the country a "strong military power", papers in China say.

Coaches Poll...Let's Do It! If you are interested, simply send an excel document of the top 25 teams on your list, with #1 at the top. Send to wakedb8 at gmail dot com by October 21st. Any vote that does not have a diversity of argument styles and geographies represented may be discarded. Any coach may enter a ballot. Ties, less than 25 ranked teams, and multiple entries from one school all allowed.

Wohoo Debate!

Fresh for 2015...

The ratings are still very rough due to the fact that we have virtually the bare minimum of data to run them. There *are* teams that you may find on the ratings and believe that they are much better or much worse than their current standing. Hopefully, those instances will decline as more data becomes available. There is also a FAQ and a series of blog posts on the website which helps to explain how the ratings are calculated and the reasons behind some of the decisions that have been made.

Also, before anybody pulls out their "jump to conclusions" mat, please be aware that the results of neither round robin have yet been included. Those results will be part of the next round of ratings, which will come out after Harvard.

Survey closed. Thank you everyone, seriously thank you, to everyone who took the time to fill out and encourage others to complete. We are going to begin analyzing data soon and hope to have some information out soon rather than later. Please let me know if you have any questions!

I would strongly encourage interested students to apply for these positions! I had the opportunity to be a graduate student at Wyoming and work with Dr. Cram and would strongly recommend the program.  If you have any interest in talking with someone who has been through the program I would love to talk with you. I am at Kentucky this weekend and available through email ( if you would like to chat.

If anyone else needs rooms in the tournament hotel (the Flamingo), there are now more available. The block was full, but they just expanded it by 15 more rooms... You'll have to pay a bit more on Sat and Sun night, but overall, it's still a great deal. $72-10/15, $125 10/16-17, $72 10/18-19... These prices do not include the $25 resort fee per night, BUT they are good for up to 4 people per room  The reservation link is

The University of Wyoming debate team is seeking two graduate student assistant coaches beginning in Fall 2016.  The assistantship is for two years and includes:

-   A full tuition waiver for the M.A. degree in the Department of Communication and Journalism.
-   An annual stipend near the top of terminal M.A. programs around the country.

Assistantships can include teaching an argumentation/debate course, or working with the team full-time. 

Expectations for both positions includes satisfactory progress towards degree completion and graduation from the program, working with the debate team through practices, teaching and argument research, and traveling to several intercollegiate policy tournaments per semester to help the director fulfill coaching and judging obligations.  Graduate students in the department can pursue research in a variety of areas including: rhetoric, political communication, interpersonal communication, journalism, public relations, and media studies.

For information about how to apply or if you have any questions about the team, school, or Laramie, feel free to email me at or catch me at a tournament to talk about it.
