Judge Philosophies
« on: November 03, 2010, 08:28:39 PM »
Perhaps it would be possible for the some of Liberty and GMU judges to post judging philosophies. It's a little late in the season for these to not be posted. Makes prefs rather pointless.

1. I agree judge philosophies should be up (whether for mpj or adapting)
2. It's not just Liberty and GMU, we (Vanderbilt) were guilty of that too for one of our folks, and I apologize. I have now posted a brief blurb that Patrick will update when he gets a chance
3. I urge a little patience because, while it is a good distance into the season, some of us are still rustling up new judges or are bringing in judges for one-time-only help at our tournaments
4. It might also help to backchannel specific schools, since some of them might not be reading this, and might need a reminder, or an indication that their hired judge doesn't have a philosophy up (that was my plan last night, but I ran out of time...)

Judges that have 8-14 rounds on the topic should have philosophies post already. There's no excuse for that. I'm not talking about last second judges added to program's regular roster of judges.
