  1. Big Ten

    At least he was talking on Mat 2, some of the other mats have been brutal!
  2. Big Ten Tournament Contest

    How about Most Correct Champs as a tie breaker before the Team Champs and Score? 125 Lee 1 133 Micic 2 141 Lee 3 149 Retherford 10 157 Nolf 5 165 Martinez 8 174 Hall 7 184 Nickal 6 197 Moore 4 285 Snyder 9 Penn State with 151pts
  3. I do believe these are taped and played later, each separately. Looks like Iowa does a live broadcast of the finals. Best way they can show them all at the same time I imagine. On a side note, if they just went to ONE class, this would not be an issue, maybe they should just work harder at their broadcast.
  4. Blake Boarman

    My hats off to this stud. Showed tremendous grit suiting up and wrestling through his injury. Looking forward to following the next few years!
  5. Region?!?

    Davison actually bumped up and wrestled Brandon Streck in our dual this year, it is in fact Brandon’s only other loss this year. It was a good match, 3-1 until last few moments when Brandon went for it and ended up giving up a takedown and backs.
  6. Sprinting to get seats

    Maybe some common sense can prevail and people just be reasonable when saving seats. 1-2 per person in the section, anything more than that is unacceptable and if that group is not allowing you to sit down, I would advise notifying an usher. I enjoy reading the posts in which they remove the tape or sheets that are saving seats. I have never personally had an issue, but I think one of these years I am just gonna go around and purposely sit in "saved" seats!
  7. Best Weight Ever?

    I agree with your take, I think when comparing deepest/best weight classes, I would only include the ones in which the accomplishments were from previous years. Most of your lower weight classes, which the majority are underclassmen, will always be stacked once you look back at them. 120/126 usually are the classes that we get to see the meat grinders, of course this is probably because the aforementioned underclassmen will eventually end up right around these weight classes when they hit their Senior years.
  8. Who Should Keep The Bus Running?

    Do any of the other IHSAA sports have their Semi-States hosted in venue similar to we do for wrestling? I don't think this is true, but please correct me if I am wrong. I would be interested to know how much money is made renting out the Ford Center and Coliseum. I am betting that it is at best a push. We are spoiled in wanting bigger/posh venues for our tournament locations prior to the State Finals. I personally am OK with a High School hosting this event. I think it is good for the location and a good source of revenue that can help out their athletic programs. This leads me to another thing on my mind... Are we trying to emulate our State tournament too much prior to the actual tournament? The spotlights, face offs with a listing of accomplishments, arenas hosting the event, etc. I mean I think it is great, but I guess I would want some of this to be reserved for that third weekend in February. Discussion?
  9. East Chicago weather report

    Storm is supposed to be Thursday into Friday. Hopefully cleaned up enough to travel on Saturday morning without restrictions.
  10. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    Thanks for clarification.
  11. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    Should there be any teams that had 13 forfeits? I thought if you entered 2 or less wrestlers, forfeits become byes. My next question would be, if they only entered two wrestlers, and one of the two or both for some reason did not wrestle, do their spots become byes or forfeits?
  12. Class Champs picks

    Looks like some potential semi final matches or even championship matches in about 2 weeks. Things that make you go hmmmmm?
  13. Define OW

    One that is often times decided before Final matches are decided, another disrespect of the upper weights.
  14. Definitely would not add much to the day to add wrestlebacks at this level of the tournament. It adds 28 more matches in your Semi-Final round and 28 more after. I think some can argue though that at the end of the day, even with wrestlebacks, your Top 4 will probably remain the same as without the wrestlebacks.
  15. Nicely done by the way, as always.
