The screenplay is co-authored by Professor Miller, who is currently the head debate coach at UCLA. He added the debate technical information and you'll notice that UCLA is ranked #1 on the blackboard rankings. Professor Miller is also in the film; he is the timer and announces the topic in the final round.
