As every debater knows, the art of debate entails, logic, clarity, structure, time management, style, confidence, fluency, volume, and no ad hominems.
These two fail on everything except for confidence and volume. They get an A+ for volume:
Fort Hays University Debate Coach Bill Shanahan (the ponytail) gets extra bonus points for the mooning.
No, Just kidding. Actually he’s been fired for violating the university’s faculty code of ethics.
“Professor Shanahan’s conduct falls below the standard established to protect our university, its faculty, students and alumni,” Hammond said in the news release. “As a representative of FHSU, he had a duty of care that was seriously breached by his behavior.
“If the coach of one of our athletic teams became angry and ‘mooned’ officials, student athletes and fans during a sports event, he or she would no longer be a coach at Fort Hays State University. Standards for our debate program are certainly just as high.”
I should hope so.
