Life Raft Debate Panelists Needed

The Life Raft Debate is looking for a few brave souls to serve as panelists, defending their academic discipline at the 21st annual Life Raft Debate on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. in Palmer Auditorium.

In the debate, we imagine that the world has been nearly annihilated and that humanity can only carry one more person off to found the new world. The panelists argue that their discipline is the one that will best serve the fledgling society to be built. After lively debate and interaction, the audience votes and the winner climbs aboard the Life Raft as the losers, well, lose and drown. To volunteer to be a panelist or to nominate someone, please email Michael Patton.

Student Highlights

UM students Justin Barnes and Adam Carroll are ranked #1 for Bass Rankings’ 2-Year College Team Rankings. The 2-Year Team Rankings measure a team’s performance over the past two years with a six-tournament minimum and includes ACA, BASS, FLW, and independent school opens, invitationals or qualifiers. The criteria demonstrate which programs are the most consistent over the course of time instead of high rankings in only one season.

“The unique thing about the two-year ranking for the college level is that it allows anglers to see how they rank over half of their careers,” Bass Rankings Editor Sean Ostruszka said.
