    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    That's probably enough for light weights. But for many mid to upper weights it is more necessary to be well prepared for other attacks in situations where shots don't work.

    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    There are too many coaches discouraging it. I built a week of Greco into the high school season because one of the HCC teams used to love to throw and we had to know how to stop them. That's before your time, so I'm feeling old now.

    I'm still hanging around. (If you meant Grecoref, I still miss him too.) The benefits of Greco are outstanding. Unfortunately, not enough coaches fully understand the style and those benefits. And even worse are the coaches who actively discourage it. I don't think Greco is for beginner wrestlers, but training & competing at the regional, national, or international levels can take a good wrestler and make him/her much better with hand fighting, positioning, hip use, defense, etc. along with simply being more comfortable when an opponent ties up upperbody. Mid-upper weight wrestlers planning on competing in college should get some Greco experience because there is so much upper body positioning required at the next level. I like the triple crown award because it shows excellence in all 3 styles and a well rounded wrestler. And even if college coaches don't actively recruit Greco wrestlers, they do notice guys who do all styles.
  7. I envision the kid's parents saying something like "He is special so I don't want him treated like everyone else, but at the same time, he shouldn't be singled out so treat him like everyone else." This is one of these new-age coaching nightmares. In hindsight, the best solution would have been for the coach to have a private meeting with the kid and parents to discuss every potential situation and the best way to handle them. I'm just confused how he was "outed" when a couple years ago "he" was a "she"? Sounds like a civil liberties group or just MSM used that wording to escalate the story.

    Which state does it best?

    The RCA Dome would be way too cold in February (since it is a parking lot now) Lucas Oil Stadium would have to give the IHSAA a great deal/discount to use it affordably.

    NFHS Survey--Please get this in ASAP

    If the survey is from the NFHS, then it's national, not state.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    The 2nd round of semistate is still flawed. That is where (without an upset) a top 4 wrestler can be eliminated.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    A Sectional or Regional champ who loses first round was beaten by someone who has lost twice and was 4th best at their Sectional/Regional. That automatically puts him behind 4 others, so a 2nd loss isn't necessary. The IHSAA has no sympathy for upsets.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    The only proposal that I think the IHSAA would even consider would be to send 5 from each semistate to state. Here's how it would work. First round losers are out. Quarter final losers have to wait. If the wrestler that beat them wins in the semis and makes the finals, then those 2 ticket round losers will wrestle for 5th during the finals with the winner qualifying for state and the loser (6th) as the alternate. That adds zero time to semistate. 4th & 5th placers will be paired up for first round of state. It will add about 1-1.5 hours at the beginning of state, but it also adds more revenue in the IHSAA's pocket from ticket sales. This is far from perfect, but it does give the "death draw" a chance, and the IHSAA is far more likely to consider it than hearing about wrestlebacks year after year. They always ask "How many times can a guy lose?" The answer to that has to be "twice". Every wrestling tournament in the country is double-elimination. The IHSAA should set up a system where nobody is eliminated after their first post-season loss unless that loss is to somebody who has lost twice (like first round of regionals and semistate). The only exception would be in Sectionals with more than 8 wrestlers, but proper seeding and bye placement can limit that.

    Team State Qualifying

    ^ This right here. Go to something like this and all this debate is over. Figure out the enrollment cutoff that roughly balances the 3 classes and just set it at that for 4 years (2 enrollment cycles) then realign the cutoffs at that point. Schools will still move up or down, but it is more straightforward and no worries about what to do if a school closes, combines, or adds wrestling.

    Semi State alternate?

    New Castle has been like that for as long as I can remember.
