  1. Upsets, surprises and great matches

    Anything is possible and Hall was impressive. I felt his moves worked against Viduya, got a lead and kept rolling. They didn't work with Smiley who is always tough at NC and maybe more "fundamental". Can't wait for state and a rematch would be very interesting.
  2. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    There are many very big for their weight class. What does that have to do with 106? Fair at 120 is vey big for example. 106 is 108 for the tournament, so already tough on many. I know of sr 106 that weren’t big for the class and never cut weight. Heck, they could eat breakfast and be under.
  3. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    Guess I don’t see a problem needing a solution. Why not count wrestlers who bump weight classes to avoid FFTs as FFT. 196 is 285, or 171 at 195 or any weight class for that matter. Nobody bumps to 106 and very few to 113, Maybe use the actual weight at weigh in in comparison with this data? There were many times these bump up wrestlers might as well been a FFT. 6 is 6.

    Oh sweet baby Jesus, don't let them add a 245...
  5. Genius Ratings 2018

    Agreed. A lot of work and great to see it made available. Knightstown is a good example of being higher than several that have beaten them. It seems like some teams with higher SOS are at a disadvantage somehow. Not dinging Knightstown just an observation. Thanks for the time and effort putting these out!!!
  6. Mills v Garcia...

    Eppert/Wright were never in the same sectional. Met at regional but a great rivalry it was!
  7. Trick question? ☺ That would violate the weight management plan. Neither seem healthier than the other. I get your point and it relates with mine. There are some athletes that need the lighter weight classes just like there are some between 250-285. Neither are a majority but both should have the opportunity to wrestle. No other sport teaches better life lessons and that's what I love about the sport.
  8. That’s a shape, but not wrestling shape. I am sure you know how lineman eat to be heavy and it’s not always healthy. Health and safety were two of the factors unlimited was changed to 275 at the time. Again, I enjoy the big guys at state too. Just leave the light weights alone unless the heavier weights are changed as well. Most matches and local tourny’s have lots of “out of weight class” atheletes between 182-285.
  9. Don’t think it’s a national rule, but several states have a minimum weight for 106 and 113. How many healthy, fit high school athletes weigh over 250 let alone 285? No, I am not saying 285 should drop. I don’t want to see any weight class reductions.
  10. Easy, throw them in a pigtail, no wrestle backs and let the IHSAA sort it out. LOL!
  11. New Uniforms

    That's debatable, otherwise all would wear them. If there was an advantage it would be very hard to measure unlike swim suits. But I agree don't see any competitive advantage vs fight shorts. Nor did I say I was against fight shorts.
  12. New Uniforms

    Have seen many track athletes wear singlets with no issue. Maybe it's because it's their choice? Like already stated, have seen many 2 piece i really liked that fit well. Others, usually fight shorts, fit too loose and didn't look as good. Have seen hands get caught a bit but nothing major or worse than at practice. I wonder if the ability to choose is as big a factor as the singlet itself? Heck, down the road the trend may be a preference for singles? My opinion, let the teams choose and hopefully that helps grow the sport.
  13. Notable wins 1/13

    He was lucky Baker continued not to mention the no pin call. Looked pretty flat for a long time. Regardlesx, glad the match continued and Cornwell did get it done in OT.
  14. Notable wins 1/13

    Nice wins! Maybe the bump vs Frankton was due to Frankton bumping Klettheimer to 182? Would have been a good one to see as well.
  15. Favorite Excuses

    But coach, all i did was drink a little Gatorade.
