Madison Cup Final Debate [Event]

The final debate was separated from the rest and held at Wilson Hall.  The following teams made it into the final debate: JMU, Alaska, and American for the Pro and Claremont, Cornell, and Vermont for the Con.  The public speaking ability was much better at this debate, which was to be expected since it was supposed to be the best teams.

Cornell’s speaking skills were not as good as the rest; they would speak to fast, making it hard to understand one specific point they were trying to make.  It sounding like they were trying to get as much material as possible in, regardless of how it came out sounding.  They needed to slow down, distinguish one point and emphasize it.

Alaska was probably most passionate and definitely craziest of all.  The guy from Alaska would just storm off on a tirade and refused to answer questions from any of the other teams.  It was interesting seeing him on the opposite side of the table from the last debate.
