  1. I believe it will be Saturday, December 23rd.
  2. Bellmont middle school and Decatur wrestling club are looking for several upper weight middle school wrestlers to fill our freestyle duals lineup for Notre Dame in early April. Contact decbell1@gmail.com
  3. Tough talk from a guy from the princess city lol, and I also have zero influence on the committee of power. They leave those decisions to the big hitters.
  4. You're missing the point. The IHSAA is not going to just make up rules for wrestling. The tournament, if it ever happens, will have as many classes as the rules say they should (75% rule) and it will be a random draw, and everyone with a team will participate.
  5. If you're going to include the IHSAA, I wouldn't push this proposal.
  6. I think the ideal situation would guarantee participation against similarly-sized schools. If you really wanted to, you could have a north and south NIT, for the top 12 (or 8) teams that didn't make it from the north and top 12 from the south.
  7. What percentage of fans these last two years have been from non-participating teams? I think you could award "regional sites" to different school who are willing to host, and teams could go to any regional site they want, in case they felt like they'd see repeat teams at their local site. It would take some organization but the the Coaches Association would have all summer to fit teams in each location.
  8. I've proposed this idea to multiple people. Take one whole weekend. Team State teams go to the Coliseum. Everywhere else has regional classed tournaments. If Harrison doesn't make it, they wrestle against other 3A teams in their area that didn't make it. It would allow all teams participating to have a guaranteed date and it would free us from all other conflicts.
  9. What the ......?
  10. You are grossly misinformed as to how their program works if you think the main cogs are the high school coaches from the time they are 9th graders until their senior year. I think there is a little more to their program than that.
  11. Tim Myers is hosting an elite freestyle program at Bellmont starting in April
  12. Name one school district in Indiana that is beholden to geographical boundaries.... What are you even talking about ?
  13. What a shame, the loss of Oak Hill and Monrovia sucks
