Congratulations to the students and coaches from Wake Forest University for winning the 2008 National Debate Tournament.
After an outstanding season, the "A" team from University of Kansas (my alma mater) lost in the "elite eight." The accomplished "B" team was also one of the nation's top 16 teams this season (based on pre-tournament rankings) and lost in the "sweet sixteen" at the NDT.
At the CEDA national championship, that "B" team finished runner-up.
All this makes me feel old, by the way. This photo is from 25 years ago this week:I'm pictured with colleague Mark Gidley.
Note: In both 1983 and 2008, teams from Dartmouth College finished second at the NDT.
