  4. Lesnar vs. Snyder

    Neal beat lesnar for a NCAA title, I think Neal getting smoked is incorrect
  5. Evansville North Regional

    I don't mind the change one bit. I've coached in 3 sectionals (southridge, central, and now castle) and this will make 4 regionals (jeffersonville, Bloomington south, castle, and now North) every venue is different and has their pros and cons. the reason castle runs so smoothly is there is a great support system and they've had 40 years to get it right. We can't judge north yet because it hasn't happened yet. personally I've felt Bloomington south and jeffersonville run their regionals just as smooth if not smoother than castle. They can run 4 mats and everything is top notch. that being said, if we as coaches and fans, the main reason we go is for the wrestling, not the venue. The wrestling will be the same at north as it was at castle because....well it's the same wrestlers, just different gym
  6. Castle Sectional

    Sorry we're bringing the sectional down. For what it's worth, we didn't ask to be moved.
  7. Evansville North Regional

    Hello coach Barnett
  8. Evansville North Regional

    I think the hatchet house in Washington would be excellent in terms of seating and geographical location, except the parking and floor space for the mats is not adequate.
  9. Southridge Sectional

    Huntingburg memorial gymnasium
  10. Seeding Meeting Change???

    And as I said, that's not the wrestler's fault if someone forfeits to them. as I explained earlier my teams schedule is made by the AD and I haven't been able to change it for 3 years. we wrestle a team 4 times, and two others 3 times because they happen to be at the same tourneys we are my 145lber has received forfeits from each of these 3 teams, because none of them have a 145, and one doesn't have a 152 so he couldn't bump (plus I have a 152) his season record is currently 22-4, with 12 pins and 10 forfeits, hate that this will hurt him for something he can't control
  11. Seeding Meeting Change???

    It's not the wrestlers fault in most cases. The wrestlers, and in some cases including mine, the coach doesn't make the schedule. My AD finds our tourneys. We have wrestled in only two tourneys this year where at least one team filled all 14 weights. Not the wrestler's fault that other teams don't have kids in their weight at a tourney or dual
  12. Best 4 year span-dual meets, etc.

    I would guess mater dei, any 4 year stretch from 95-03
  13. Numbers up? How are those numbers now?

    We started with 17 on the first day of practice. We currently have 6. reasons- 4 are ineligible with grades and have decided to stop showing up 3 had decided to quit to get jobs. (At the present time only 1 of them has a job) 1 has been expelled 1 quit because he still has to let his arm heal from when he broke it in the spring (odd considering he played the entire football season, starting both ways, without any padding on said arm) 1 quit after the first tourney saying it wasn't for him 1 decided to tell me he didn't care if I thought him wrestling in a tourney was important, he had dinner with his girlfriend and he was meeting her family, so that mattered more to him. plus I lost my manager because she was the aforementioned girlfriend plus my assistant has mono and hasn't been cleared to help. so yeah
  14. Jasper six-way

    A think a lot of people forget Jasper use to be the second best team in this tourney for many many years. The 90's and early 2000's they were a very solid team. I think it was about 5 or 6 years ago they were a top 20 state ranked team
