  1. State predictions?

    Be cool to see SA join AC and Bellmont with an individual champ.
  2. Because nobody reads the college board

    Not sad about these 2 missing out. Hope Coach Eggum takes more IN recruits. Hopefully Schlatter can steal OH recruits for my Gophers.
  3. Sprinting to get seats

    Lower level should be coaches, parents, siblings/family/friends and teammates only of state qualifiers. They should have a certain allotment for each state participant. My preference, will never happen, but have only 1 weight class wrestling at a time. Next weight class cannot start until the previous class is finished (yeah takes longer but who is counting). I assume from the draw that mat # is known and you could make passes for the allotted family members and assign seats or rows of sections near that mat for each section for each match. No pass then no access. Have the Firehouse staff collect each one after the match for winning wrestlers for following rounds.
  4. Brayton Lee 8pm TONIGHT

    Excited to see the Gophers hitting the Eastern corn belt in recruiting. Excited to cheer those guys on in the coming years.
  5. Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    Fully understand your concern and reasons. Your athletes on the football team a year ago were outstanding young men, and Im sure this year's team was the same. I think the question to ask is if your son looks back on his choice, will he regret doing or not doing whatever activity. Will he miss making memories on the gridiron or regret not putting more time into his craft on the mat. The good thing is neither is the wrong choice if he can live with the decision. Injuries are going to happen regardless of the sport. This accident prone guy knows all about that.
  6. Preseason Fort Wayne Semi-State Rankings

    I'd be for it, but I know 2 football coaches that would kill it immediately as they have baseball and track. Plus 1A schools would struggle to have enough athletes for each.
  7. Preseason Fort Wayne Semi-State Rankings

    Yep, unless anyone can convince him otherwise. Let's be honest, wrestling and basketball are #2 sports for our athletes. Not that we don't give 110% in everything, but football has always been the #1 by a wide margin and will probably always be if nothing changes.
  8. Preseason Fort Wayne Semi-State Rankings

    From what I heard, Macklin is switching sports. This per football coaches I talk with. Kids been tearing the gridiron up!
  9. Hope this helps IU and makes B1G wrestling even better.
  10. IU and Purdue and B1G Tourney

    This is also why they have sucked at basketball and football. Donors are making the AD decisions for him and have zero idea about sports. Just business people trying to ruin a sports program.
  11. IU and Purdue and B1G Tourney

    Personally disappointed as my Gophers dropped to 5th and B Pfarr losing along with the darn Buckeyes winning it all. As for IU and PU,I think both will struggle regardless of getting the top tier Indiana kids. Need to find some overlooked Eastern Ohio & Western Pennsylvania kids to bolster the room. Plus they need someone to get buzz about each program. Neither have a had a name to attach with on a national level.
  12. Caleb Hankenson of Bellmont commits to

    Hopefully Coach Donley puts him at RB once in awhile besides LB. With a line, he can be very dangerous.
  13. Anyone Have Thoughts on J Robinson?

    He knew the new Sheriff was in town and didn't handle it the way he (AD) wanted. Personally I would have liked how J handled it to be the way given his tenure and reputation. However, with the way precedent has been set in our society, he should have complied. Especially when law enforcement was brought into it. I only compare it to Paterno since he was shielding his wrestlers. I don't condone what Paterno did, but have no problem with J's intentions. I just thought it was foolish since we see how similar cases have been handled. Unfortunately you have to follow the PC & PR rules today.
  14. I have always been a fan of his Gopher wrestling teams. He seemed to be very strict and disciplined. His firing makes it very sad and so hard to believe. His handling of the prescription drug abuse by his wrestlers was just the opposite of how he came across. His hard headed ways ended his great run. Almost like Paterno but with a lesser scandal. Sad when it looked like winning/not following policy came before the right way to do things.
  15. Like that idea very much. I also promoted the basketball day in Indiana as well on other boards. Glad HS football finally got put on Fox Sports for the finals a few years back. Baseball, volleyball, and softball should be as well (believe they are). We need to get as much exposure for all of our athletes and extra curricula members. Never know when that exposure could lead to college scholarships, Olympic opportunities, and etc.
