  1. Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    Perserverence, I don't think anyone on here was intending to offend you. I think they were only trying to give you the feedback that you ask for. You wanted opinions from others' perspectives and they generously provided it. That doesn't mean you have to agree with it all or follow any of it. But at least you now have more input than you had before. And for that I think you should be grateful. But more than that, be grateful that you have such a fine son who is multi-talented enough to have choices that DO have to be made.
  2. East Chicago semi state rankings

    OTR asked for comments and suggestions. I think all the comments were trying to provide helpful information and not to express unhappiness, ... but I get your point. I'd probably be too thin skinned (and too uninformed) to put my rankings out there.
  3. New Cathedral addtions

    I heard the same rumor. But my sources were definitely not inside sources, so take it with a grain of salt.
  4. Parris releases list of Schools

    IU being unranked among undergraduate engineering schools is because they don't have an engineering program. So if Mason is considering going to IU, he must also be considering other majors as well.
  5. Brayden Lowery

    Rather bizzare discussion and interesting graphic. I have wonder how they are related.
  6. Thoughts on a rule change proposal for 2018

    Hey, if it is more mat wrestling (and less takedown and cut) that you want, what about a 2 point escape? Ha ha
  7. Congratulations to the Hoosier Heritage Conference for their 4 individual state titles ... Curtis, White, Laughlin, and Gray ... plus another runner-up ... Hunt. Also, congratulations to Delaware County putting 5 into the finals ... Curtis, Hunt, Laughlin, Gray, and Maddox. #TheOtherCounty
  8. Definition of a "lock"

    Appropriately, Merriam-Webster also defines lock as "a hold in wrestling secured on one part of the body." That said, if we are going with Vito's initial definition, I would go with Braydon Lee, Joe Lee, and Parris. I probably wouldn't give the lock status to a 3rd ranked wrestler.
  9. Although perhaps unlikely, I think theoretically it's possible. Consider just one weight class for example. If one stacked regional has 6 guys ranked in that weight class, and the other three regionals feeding into the same semi-state have none, then the most ranked guys advancing to semi-state would be just 4.
  10. This bracket can not be right

    I think it has been verified that the coach did not provide all the proper information, including weigh-in information, at least at the seedings meeting.
  11. This bracket can not be right

    My question is, if the coach didn't have all the weigh-in info with him, how could he show that all his wrestlers were eligible for the weight classes he entered them in? If that is the case, how are they eligible at all? This is just a question as I don't know how all the seeding stuff goes.
  12. This bracket can not be right

    Yes, in the 152 class, the kid that was originally seeded #2 got bumped up to #1. He now has to wrestle the kid from LC that was originally #1. So that kid went from #2 to effectively unseeded.
  13. This bracket can not be right

    Those aren't the original brackets. For example, I saw an earlier set of brackets where Steele of LC was seeded first at 152. I was told 2nd hand that the LC coach didn't turn in some kind of weigh-in(?) paper work making the LC wrestlers ineligible for seeding. Therefore, the LC seeds were taken away. Again, that is just 2nd hand information, so take it as such.
  14. If what you say happened exactly as you say it happen, it is a travesty to say the least. And, if so, I understand your emotion. However, I don't think you solve the problem or set a good example to the young men on your team by getting fired from your job. While everybody needs to vent sometimes, I hope you reconsider your planned actions after you cool down. I hope the would be host school strongly protests to Tech administration. And perhaps a slew of letters to the newspaper about this injustice might get it some notice.
  15. IS THIS LEGAL???

    Brutal to say the least.
