  1. Calculating

    Have to agree with Y2. I know a good math tutor that would be happy to help with that calculation. I think if all plays in the notrhs favor at best 6 but in reality I see 2 solid golds and 4 that could pull off a gold heist at the bank. If I was a betting person I would go with 3 because even the solid golds aren't always as solid as you might think. Anything can happen and as you know there have been a lot of robberies in the vault at the bank.
  2. High School Wrestling Participation up

    I don't think the increase necessarily has to be a product of just one cause. Not only has the uniform started to change, and no matter how much i hate the 2 piece im sure their are a lot more kids willing to wear it, but we have also seen a huge increase of the number of girls that are joining the teams since the girls state was introduced. Then we had at least 2 or 3 schools that added wrestling to their school this year. I'm sure all of these have played factors in the increase. Now with that being said, I've seen a lot more ff this year than ever before. I don't think dividing the compitition into large and small schools will help anything. If a kid wants to be good, he will find a way. I think there is a validity to some of the better kids at small schools transferring to larger schools. It just makes since that the smaller the student count, the smaller the numbers in the room, which means it will be less likely that there would be another kid at their skill level around their size to push them during practice. So, the better kid transfers to have partners in his room. I think we can lower the chances of the kid transferring, if the IHSAA would do away with some of the rules about where and with whom a kid can train during the season. We are one of the few states that have these strict rules. If they can train with other schools kids, which most likely will be the same kids they train with in the off season, then not only will we see a continued increase in talent through out the season, but it will lessen the need for higher caliber kids to feel they have to go to a larger school. Yes it is a wrestling TEAM but like it or not its still an individual sport. " whend you're out their wrestling with someone stronger and faster than you, there's not a whole heck of a lot a team can do for you". Sorry, couldn't help myself
  3. Dodging matchups

    Just let the kids wrestle. We have had 15 matches so far this year and 6 were ff and most of those teams had kids at that weight. You don't ever dodge a match. Heck you can be 0-40 going into sectionals and earn your #1 ssed for regionals and so on. You should always want to wrestle the good kids. A good example is, Tommy's freshman year he was undefeated going into the finals match at semi state. He ended up losing to Nathan Boston 1-0. He came off the mat with a big grin. His coach says," Tommy, why are you so happy, you do know that you just lost, right?" Tommy responds with, " yep and that was fun!" Let the kids go out there and have fun. It's ok to lose. These kids are learning a lot more than wrestling from this sport. Personally I would rather my kids learn that anything can happen if you just go out there and try instead of your not good enought so why bother going out there.

  10. Wrestlers Needed For Virginia Beach High School Duals

    Due to weight changes and drops, we currently have 4 open spots between the 2 High Rollers Teams. If you are interested please email me at highrollerswrestlingteam@gmail.com or text me at 317-281-3678. The open weights are 106, 126, 182 and 220. There is a 3# allowance added to the weight at weigh ins. Cost is $210 which covers the entry fee, singlet, 2 shirts, fighter shorts and a gear bag. Both teams look incredibly strong this year.
  11. Thoughts on a rule change proposal for 2018

    I hate the 4 pt near fall rule. Giving them 1 more point for 1 less count. That is big difference to make up. I know it is just one pt more, but when you think of the scenario of what you would have to do to make up the points, it makes it a lot less doable. I can't stand the college stalling call. Sometimes going out of bounds just happens, but the refs feel forced to call one of the wrestlers for stalling because " its the rule". I do however think the college out of bounds rule would be a great addition to high school wrestling. I also would love to see the riding time added. Just my thoughts, since you asked.
  12. Indiana has a couple of teams going to Virginia Beach again this year. Both the High Rollers and the Outlaws have open spots. This is a great dual tournament with a lot of nationally ranked wrestlers competing and college coaches their watching. Both teams did well last year with the High Rollers finishing 5th out of 163 high school teams. Rather than try and track down the kids who want to compete in this tournament this year, I thought I would reach out to the wrestlers and coaches on here in hopes they will contact me. This tournament is May 26th through May 29th. If you are interested please contact me with your wrestlers name and weight. The weights are high school weights plus 3#.. If I don't have that weight open, I will forward your info to the Outlaws team. Please email me at highrollerswrestlingteam@gmail.com or via text at 317-281-3678. Thanks - Brandi Cash Indiana High Rollers
  13. bailey vs luigs....luck of the irsh? 132/138?

    Swinfan- no there was a difference in time in both matches. The difference between the 2 matches is that they had to reset the official clock in the bailey match and not in the melloh match. So, the melloh match ran on the official clock and when the horn sounded, it was over. In the bailey match, when they reset the official clock, they reset it to match the track wrestling clock, which was 2 seconds slower. Which means that Lugis got 2 extra seconds to score than he actually should have had. Which means the match should have already been over before the takedown happened.The official time on the score clock and the track wrestling clock you see on the computer and on the Megatron screen are run separately by 2 different people. The track time is used as a back up, incase the official time keeper doesn't hear a whistle or forgets to stop the clock, which is what happened in the bailey match. So when the official clock didn't stop in time, they reset it to match the track clock, which was running 2 seconds behind the official clock, in turn giving Kyle an addition 2 seconds to score. IE no takedown. IE no magic involved.
  14. bailey vs luigs....luck of the irsh? 132/138?

    The track wrestling time was showing 2 seconds more than the official time. It was that way in most marches all weekend. I was watching the time because both the wrestlers and the clock were in a direct line on sight from where I was sitting. There were 6 seconds on the clock when they went out. Then they re-set the clock to 8 seconds, to match the track wrestling click, so he actually got more time back than he should have. Therefore, no takedown.But great match. Oh and Melloh got robbed. The first takedown was iffy, but the second one was a takedown and NF.
  15. Alternates

    Oops, I was reading that too late at night and thought it said to a state match. No, I don't know any that have made it to the finals match. My bad
