    Lol. Your point was still valid, IN wrestling is on the uptick.

    We are actually 6th. Although CA and MI would drop, both OK and IA would move up on a per capita basis. Still pretty impressive.

    NCAA Nationals

    That was a stacked weight for sure.

    NCAA Nationals

    I agree. Micic is wrestling at such a high level. His top game has grown by leaps and bounds and his neutral looks better (and he was pretty darn good on his feet already). I think he handles Pletcher and believe he can pull one out with Gross.

    Forfeits - MN's proposed solution

    Secondarily, do you believe this helps or hurts the argument that class wrestling would significantly improve forfeits?
  8. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/19842 What do you think of contracting weights for dual purposes? It seemed like quite a few folks on the board were in favor of this. How do you see it impacting participation?

    NCAA Title Contenders

    With Sinkovics and H. Lee claiming NAIA titles, i contemplated which IN kids are the hopefuls in 3 NCAA divisions. Here of my thoughts, but I'd like to hear your opinions. D1 133 Micic (solid) There is a Jackrabbit that will have a lot to say about that, but Micic has been wrestling great and he'll come in on the opposite side of the bracket. 141 N. Lee (outside) Getting AA at that weight will be quite an accomplishment for a true frosh. PSU has a knack for getting kids to peak at NCAAs and we all know Lee is putting the work in, so who knows maybe he pulls a Cinzo. D2 125 Glogouski 141 Nick Crume (solid) Crume has been right there his first 3 years. Going 5th, 2nd, and 5th. I think he caps off an amazing career at UIndy with a Title! 157 Kemper D3 133 Owen Doster AA last year and has improved. He certainly has a reasonable shot at it. 157 Kyle Hatch Has been really good this year and is ranked top 5 coming in. 149 Austin Bethel Never know when he might pin a wrestler or two he wasn't supposed to. He has been improving at the right time. 174 Darden Schurg Probably the most solid (along with Doster) of the of group in respect to his title chances. He has been wrestling great and ranked #2 for most of the year. How off base, or overly optimistic am I? Who did i leave off that has a shot at a title this year?

  14. I think you are right. It sounds like an attempt to squeeze a settlement out of the school corp. I still feel bad for the kid, because clearly he isnt driving the bus on this.
  15. It certainly isn't an easy position to be in as a coach, parent, admin, and especially the athlete. I wouldnt want to be that coach, but if i were i would try to do my best not to single the kid out. That said i wonder what kind of legal exposure might that create from parents of the other kids on the team?
