  1. Seeding Meeting Change???

    I totally agree with FF have nothing to do with the quality of a wrestler, and I really am not concerned about seeds. The main concern I have with restriction on our 18 point usage how are the small schools going to schedule duals. To me, be a man step on the line smack hands and wrestle. Love to see a 4 seed take out the 1 seed in semis
  2. Seeding Meeting Change???

    Those that say the new rule on FF will have no bearing on smaller schools, I disagree. For example this year I had two different occasions, 7 of my kids received a FF, now I am using 1 of my 18 points permitted and 7 kids are receiving FF. I have to consider how I use my points and get the most out of each point, so if I have 7 FF on two different occasions that is basically throwing two points in the trash since it will not help 7 of my kids with their overall winning percentage. As all coaches I want mat time and have to utilize my 18 points wisely. The only solution if this rule is for the long term is to move from 18 points to 20 this will allow a buffer and will allow coaches to keep teams on their schedule that have only 5 to 6 wrestlers.
  3. Seeding Meeting Change???

    I can see it now the individuals making the decision are sitting around trying to come up with a productive plan to grow the sport. Here is the agenda: 1. If we approve a two piece uniform this will assist in growing the sport, Great!!! Plan,presto it happens 2. Lets make it mandatory to have 6 week night duals to assist in growing the sport, Great!!! Plan, presto it happens 3. Lets come up with a plan to contradict the first two agenda items, if we wait a week prior to sectionals seeding meetings and send out an email saying all FF will not count towards overall winning percentage this should do the job in overriding the first two items on our agenda. It will also assist in killing all the smaller programs on not being able to schedule a dual and eventually being force to drop wrestling. With that said, if this is the end goal I understand and the Commissioner and Coaches Association are on target on killing some of the wrestling programs in our state.
  4. Middle School State (Regionals)???

    Only considering state competition for seeding is flawed, many of the top middle school wrestlers compete at the national level, not having how they do against the top wrestlers in the nation as part of seeding does no justice for our athletes. Competing outside of the state against the top the nation has is a true test of the quality wrestler. Would like to see how many Indian wrestlers did not compete out of state and went on to place at state or even make it to Bankers Life. In order for our state and athletes to be respected at the National level we must support competing beyond ISWA and Middle School State. For example ISWA State tourney is the same weekend as USA Dominate in the Dells in Wisconsin, so our top wrestlers are force to make a choice. There may be reasoning behind all this that I am not aware of. I think overall we do a great job and make many competitions available for our athletes, just think we should use national placings as consideration in order to promote our athletes competing at that level.
