The Finals are here. DJ will be challenging Patsfan. If DJ does not challenge by Saturday, August 21st at 11:59:59 PM (EST), Patsfan will be awarded victory via forfeit.

TD topics were chosen from a group that neither person was involved in. For example, if somebody from the NCAAF Group faces somebody from the NFL Group, the topic will be related to either MLB, NHL, NBA, NCAAB, Olympics, or Soccer.

Best of luck to all in the Finals of bracket play. As always, if there are any questions or issues, let me know.

Is our topic the best school or making a team of the best players?

The best individual team of all time (for example, 2009-10 Duke). Also, it is just limited to Division I men's basketball.

If I keep moving on, is it set up to where I won't get a MLB topic the rest of the way through?

Yes. The only way that you will get a MLB topic is if you face off against Chosen1 in the finals. If 2 from the same group face off in the finals, it will be a group-related topic. Otherwise, whatever group you were in, you are not going to get a topic on it.

This will ensure the winner will be able to debate any topic thrown at them.

Yeah, I have a samll amount of college BB knowledge, but if I get past this, I doubt I make it through an NHL or a soccer topic.

I know not a personal favorite, but the best must be able to debate anything.

Look on the bright side: you will most likely never do another NCAAB topic

I sent Darth Maim a fanmail on Monday to let him know, and he responded saying he would start on Wednesday.

Haven't been challenged yet.

Hopefully I get challenged, and hopefully this round thins out the rest of the forfeiters.
