ok, Bear bring on your accusations attacking KU's travel schedule. You
want to discuss where my teams travel (by the way our debaters largely
choose their own travel schedule) I'll be happy to do so.. Lets see. Our
top two teams were at Emporia, Our top team at William Jewell, the Jesuit,
Ceda Nats. Every member of our squad (coaches and debaters alike) went
to both traditionally NDT and
CEDA tournaments alike last year. What the heck are you talking about.
I am also offended by the way your post
reflects a devaluing of younger debaters. I value every member of my
squad. I probably spend more time working with my least experienced
debaters than I do with my oldest debaters. I don't "dump" anyone. You
can send any debater you want to the Heart and I won't question who you
send or why because I trust your ability to decide with your squad what
their travel schedule will be.
