Brett O'Donnell
has been a guest of The Colbert Report
and got nailed in the process

A know-it-all from an East Coast elite college, who finally got a lesson in nailing from the good Doctor Colbert on February 28, 2006. A debate coach at Liberty University, he claimed that they were the national champions in 2005. However, they had won the American Debate Association national tournament, which sounds impressive, but is basically like winning the NIT of college debate.

The National Debate Tournament (NDT) determines the real national champion. A list of previous winners by year can be seen here. Liberty University has never won the NDT. The National Debate Tournament determines the best debate partners, but does not determine the best national championship team. Liberty University did win the national debate tournament overall rankings in 2006 and in 2007.
