    NC Semi-State top 3 early Preview

    Man, it’s good to be back. Missing an Irish wrestler or two in these rankings, but we’ll have time for them to shake out the old fashioned way. Can’t wait for the season. 20 days until first weigh-in....

    Here you go: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1992-04-14-9202030488-story.html If you read between the lines, it is about equal number of male/female sports scholarships and nothing to do with the $300k it takes to fund the program. Adhering to athletic governance to protect any possible impropriety far outweighs adding a program that would put the university in the crosshairs with anything NCAA IMO.

    Hahaha. That’s funny. They have the one of the largest endowments in the country. It is like $12B. They could fund full scholarships for everyone on the team and their siblings. It was a title IX issue in 1993 when they dropped it originally. I imagine wrestling still maintains step-child status as they have booming female sports that need equity.

    Top 100 Career Wins

    I’m almost positive Jason Terry (Cathedral) has more wins than Lance. I know he was 50-1 his senior year. I believe 47-2 his junior year, he won it all his sophomore year, couldn’t have been more than 4 losses. And placed 6th as Freshmen. I believe he was north of 180. CHS was into the 50 matches a season program in the 90s. I’ll try to confirm actual record. Believe Matt Hasbrook was north of 150 as well.

    Ever wonder who...

    Where the heck has Bloomington been lately? There is no doubt the Doug Blubaugh days/camps and Olympic heritage produced a few offspring, but the rest? Why did Royce Deckard leave? Can anyone revive either program? There has to be more grandpas and grandsons with historic love of the sport down there to get a program rolling again. JT Young is at Carmel now, but there has to be a few others. Matt Morin and Owen Valley? It’s a great rasslin’ town. #needaresurgence

    Who Needs a Mat?

    Coach P - Are Carmel mats softer than other mats around the Indy area?

    An Idea to Think About.

    Where is Jay Manson when you need him? He would be a logical transfer to the Irish this season. Even with Arlington’s rich history, he was one of the most talented ever. These are the instances the IHSAA can’t set rules and regulations for in the transfer game: consolidations and closings.

    I’m both, Doc. Card carrying member of the resistence to the media for years. Been coaching grade school football for years (3rd and up). Been coaching K-8 wrestling for years. Never had a concussed participant. Bunch of garbage being propogated and advertised. At least in grade school and middle school.

    An Idea to Think About.

    CoachP - Transfers won’t kill the sport, but all the media circus around contact sports and the concussion nonsense just might. There is a major correlation between football and wrestling. USA Football numbers are down nationally by hundreds of thousands in the last 5 years. Parents are just getting more butt hurt about Little Johnny’s mental health. For a sport like wrestling that pushes kids harder than any other, 100% parental buy-in (especially from the mother) is paramount to a long lasting scholastic career in wrestling. The problem doesn’t lie in transfers, it lies in the number of kids that are embracing the sport. If the number of teams and most importantly, the health of wrestling programs stays static, transfers would be significant to a program’s success or demise. But, winning programs/great academic institutions will always attract parents searching for the best for their kid. Further, kids expelled for grades or conduct also predicate moves. So, transfers will always happen whether it is good for the kid or not. Be careful to not assume all transfers happen with wrestlers chasing bigtime programs. More times than not, the transfer is leaving a good program due to grades, conduct, or, in some cases, tuition.

    Cathedral is most likely the Who’s Who of transfers out. We can go 80’s old school with PM’s Coach Schoettle, mid-90s LN State Champ Robert Miller, 2000s Warren Champ Brandon Wright, etc. I’d say we’ve lost IHSAA place winners somewhere in the mid-teens since the LVR years in the 80s. Awesome place to be, but big parental sacrifice. See you lovelies on the mat in 2 short months. Irish have been putting the time in this summer..

    Flo wrestling Class of 2022 Board

    Blair ain’t no $52k. But, no different than open enrollment in Indiana either. Pick yo spot, Matty B.

    Flo wrestling Class of 2022 Board

    3 Ohio transfers/new enrollees? Begs to question who is footing the $52k/annual tuition bill for all these kids at Culver? I know there has been a gold rush in Ohio with Governor Kasich, but just wondering how three plus rasslin’ families are handling the $200k high school tuition commitment. Hard enough getting kids to Indy P/Ps for 1/4 of that.

    Possible Ohio State scandal with old wrestling coach

    Congressman Jordan seems super rattled by all this partisan press. In fact, he is so rattled, he decided to just be Speaker of the House. What a baller.
