    Two weeks until Mater Dei Reitz meet

    "..........but not even the weakest MD wrestlers give up pins "plain and simple". " I'll have to disagree. When you have been compromised and put into a situation where you can not get out from; falls or pins can happen. Sometimes a guy is just a better wrestler than his opponent. A few weight classes this year could be like what I mentioned. I guess you haven't been to all the meets in the last few years. I'll agree it is very difficult to obtain a pin against the MD wrestlers, but it has happened more often in the last few years than ever before. There has been 3-4 guys get pinned in recent years and I believe a couple can still be pinned. Reitz has had some great wrestlers in the last few years that helped them be more competitive. Even with great wrestlers it takes a very special dual where things "fall" into place for Reitz to pull the upset. Mater Dei has some unbelievable team depth again which will be hard for any team in the state to overcome. MD has some of their swagger back. Watch out rest of the state. Mater Dei will be heavily favored in this years meet, but as in most any year when MD and Reitz get together there could be some surprises.

    Connersville Brackets 2010

    Really can't understand "seeding" or whatever you want to call moving or separating the better wrestlers are just some of the brackets. 112 gettinger should of been moved to the top if everyone says he was the third seed.

    Connersville Brackets 2010

    Phillips is here. Story is Todd is sick and Phillips missed weight. Don't think Phillips would be here if sick. Way to go connersville on having Ritters ice cream and glaciers, maybe better than shaved ice.......lol

    U of Indy Wrestling

    A lot of the guys ran into some pretty tough wrestlers. The team was expecting more placers but sometimes that's the way things happen. Johns injury forfeited his last matches after losing in the semifinals. Good luck to them at the Ashland duals coming up and get some rest during the holidays.
  13. Congrats guys and get ready for the Midwest Classic next week! http://athletics.uindy.edu/news/2010/12/11/WREST_1211103302.aspx?path=wrest

    Time for a classic Y2 rant

    I somewhat agree with Y2 about posting teams lineups. Local teams still have guys go and watch others wrestle. I've been many times to the Turkey Classic just to see future opponents of my wrestlers. Posting lineups does very little to effect others preparation. Most coaches and wrestlers discuss what weight class they will wrestle before the real season competition starts. Coaches should worry about their wrestlers preparation and have them be ready against anyone that may become their wrestler's opponent. Coaches still have the strategy to move or "bump" guys around when wrestling duals. They also have their right still to keep their lineups from the public. But, they cannot control what the fans want to write concerning their team. It's still public information that can be posted for others to see. Coaches shouldn't worry about it so much. Any media or print promotion of the sport only helps more become involve. Just my opinion.
