I am a bored LD debater with no topic to research…

August 1, 2011

You poor LD debaters. Those policy debaters have had a topic to research all summer and you have zilch! 😦

Never fear. The NFL has published the topics that they will choose from for the upcoming season. We don’t know which topics will definitely be used or which months they will be for but you can go ahead and learn everything you can about each of them and be that much more prepared for the 2011-2012 season!!
