  1. Just wondering, if anyone else noticed, and had any input on the guys that sign up and did not wrestle Sunday?
  2. Not sure what happens with the other sectional and regionals. This is what I was told by a few other coaches from other schools. It doesn't make sense to change regional. If regionals stay the same then, It's just a change of venue. That just affects the schools hosting. But if what the other coaches that are more involve with Ihsaa is true ... well that isn't good. The changes have not been voted on but if we don't ask the right question and really pay attention of what's going on, than things like this can happen. And your right what would happen to the other sectionals? I
  3. Really drunk??? Well some of us are more aware of what is going than others. And some of us can have discussions. If your user name actually back up what it says you should understand this isn't good for the region. Any ways this is what I hear is in plan. Sectionals- calumet moves to Merrillville Crown point sectionals- andrean moves to Merrillville sectionals, and north Newton comes in crown point sectionals. Not a big deal there Regionals- crown point sectionals and Merrillville sectionals is the new regional. So now let's think about that. Portage, Hobart, Merrillville,crown point, Lowell, kv, valpo, wheeler , Hanover central, Hebron , Boone grove, north Newton, Griffith, lake station, river forest, andrean, highland, calumet and Gary west side So what big strong programs are left in the region that are not in that regional? Chesterton and lake central if we go with nwi top 10. So that is 8 of the top 10 schools in our area will be in that regional. Yes we do have other regional coming in. Penn of course is a power house. But I'm more concern what happens in the region . Those are just my thoughts.
  4. I just saw this post.... and I see a lot of statements about what gym or parking lot or who can host it. First .... wadkins is a great person that has done a lot for this sport in our area. But has anyone asked the important questions? How is this going to affect the region. Are they going to just move the place where sectionals and regionals are hosted? Or are they planning on shuffling some schools around? From what I hear it isn't good. Sectionals not a big deal, the kicker is at regionals!!! Can you imagine having a regional tougher than semistate? Just think of wrestlers that wouldn't make it to state bc they got eliminated at regionals not semistate. I think the region should be well represented down in Indy. That's actually good for the sport. Having the best guys competing down in indy. But again it could be all rumors since no one is talking ....
  5. Questionable calls?

    The two veterans refs at crownpoint sectionals today were on point. i would bet one of them has been around for a while... good guy.
  6. Questionable calls?

    I could never do what they do. You either someone's best friend or ..... I think we should all have one day mandatory ref service lol
  7. Questionable calls?

    Can we vent here lol???
  8. Where do I find out what class our school is, is that something that is done every year of every two?
  9. Indiana's 'middle class' in wrestling

    Here is my thought. As we are a 2a school, and a young wrestling program I don't like having jv teams at our varsity events. 1. It takes away from our guys to see other varsity wrestlers that might see them in sectionals , regionals so on. It helps us see where we are at. 2 it takes away from other schools to get in these tournaments. If it wasn't allowed at all... than it helps other schools that might not be a power house be able to compete.
  10. Isn't that what you did jmill... swoop in and defended iswa...so it's ok when you do it. So if we attend the meeting ... are we allowed to disagree with iswa "rules"??? Is that ok with you
  11. I think we will be fine ...thanks for the offer.
  12. JMill... as I see it. There are a lot of great tournaments held without iswa sanction. In reality do we need iswa to hold a tournament? IHOP is a great example. What we do is for the sport, for our kids and our community. We were not told we couldn't have our tournament we were just told pick another date. Well .... iswa doesn't really control what we do. I am sure there are a lot of rules that iswa makes and a lot of us do not agree to them( like the mandatory 2 local freestyle tournament) . But your right , if you didn't want sanction our tournament you have all the right to do that. As we will go on and have our tournament on the date we choose. So what does iswa gain from this? Setting an example ? How they let us have it last year? That was a favor to us? Please .... Iswa just made other people in a great community upset. To the point that you made earlier about insurance??? Really . You really don't think iswa is the only way to get insurance right? So do me a favor think of what you say... before you put it on here.
