For this topic our cases didn't change much, just adding in spikes and making a lay case for bellaire.
For this topic, our aff stayed the same pretty much through both tourneys. The neg was completely changed from katy taylor after hearing stuff from gbx.
University of Texas
For this topic, we had a really short turnaround from UT to strake rr, so those cases were rushed. they were much improved for UH, where we tested what we wanted to run at emory. it worked well, so we stuck w it. also, after dropping a ballot to Kempner at strake rr we decided to just switch speaker order after that round for fun. it worked well, so we stuck w that for a while. in hindsight we shouldn't have switched in the first place, prob why 2nd semester didn't go as well.
Immigration aff.pdf I really wish we tried the immigration aff atleast once, but aatreya said no

Never write off an argument as unprobable on god:
Everyone thought this argument was fake .
NDF was spent creating arguments and seeing what fits. Not much to say about what happened with cases except that these were common arguments at camp but fell out of favor during the actual topic. The aff was made to avoid the funding debate, which got ruined half way through camp. The last contention was probably a contention you can only run at camp where judges are constantly learning about the topic. The neg didn't exist until the night before the camp tournament .
We relied heavily on our aff for Grapevine, and in particular frontlining FDI. Stock arguments with good frontlines are the best arguments. Idk wtf we were doing with our neg at Grapevine .
We went with the same cases for Yale (the ones above). Didn't see a need to change them.
After Yale we decided to revamp the neg again. We'd been messing around with this debt arg the whole topic since camp but couldn't really get it down until now. Aff stayed same. Going 3-3 sucked but knowing the debt arg on the neg worked was huge.
The only change was the neg. We cut down the debt and tariffs args, and added in coal. We def should have been running coal since Grapevine; it's stock which means hella frontlines.
Glenbrooks / UT Austin
Nothing special about this topic, cases didn't really change between Glenbrooks and UT Austin.
