    I do agree there...........your the kinda guy doing it RIGHT!!!

    I don't like the idea of kids not making a lineup in elementary (which happens)..........we used to use the angle of "they cut in basketball, but everyone wrestles" now we have JV teams for elementary (which is fine), but we also have times that the elementary kid doesn't make the line up and goes a few weeks without wrestling ..... duals used to be faster, now we elementary super duals and duals tourneys (which starts the long days for parents at a younger age); "we" now even follow the baseball model that pushes kids to join "all-star" teams. Read a great article on how all-star baseball has contributed to the lack of "community" around america, and we followed. BACK IN THE DAY (man, I sound old enough to be Tonte or even Bob Harmon now), but elementary started after high school season and ended with Freestyle and Greco......then we said "lets add a month", then we said "if adding one month is good lets add 2" ......3...... now some places start in September and end in May......or even end at Folkstyle state cause "kids are burnt out" before Free and Greco start. I don't think kids dislike freestyle and greco, they are just tired by the time it starts and say no. As a head coach I used to be excited about Free/Greco starting to see all the little guys STARTING, now I am trying to figure out what bounce house or pizza party we are going to have so that they wanna come to freestyle practice. Even some coaches have tricked themselves into saying they don't like free or greco, or they say "ill never have an Olympian so why try", by that logic most coaches never have a state champ, so we should cut folkstyle practices out too. For me, by the time Free/Greco roll around I can't bear the thought of demo-ing another folkstyle move and LOVE showing "new stuff". Love showing clips of international matches - this not only sparks their wrestling knowledge but even their "worldly views." And anyone who says greco is useless must never have used handfighting or pummeling as a folkstyle drill. I truly believe with the youngers - LESS IS MORE. Its a funnel. Get out 200 elementary wrestlers (kids that call themselves wrestlers if even for a week clinic), 40-80 middle school, 50 high school - to have 10 seniors if your lucky. Good for those that can have 20 elementary guys on a duals team, and keep 10 seniors out. I don't know how they do it! But i'd love to learn. last two items What else can I rant on? Maybe the fact that Me and Y2 have agreed like 3x this week, that is more than the last 3 years. I feel I am on quite a roll!!!!!! yes, i went from elementary duals to talking Greco...........its my natural transition to most topics. I could do it if we started talking about what we eat for breakfast, I'd end with a greco talk.
  5. Forfeits - MN's proposed solution

    Robert Faulkens <> Tue 1/9/2018 2:24 PM To: Daniel Struck; You replied on 1/9/2018 2:28 PM. Two things. First, the duals do not have to be weeknight events. Second, yes, the triple dual fits into the 6 duals. Robert E. Faulkens Assistant Commissioner Indiana High School Athletic Association
  6. Forfeits - MN's proposed solution

    18 points (16 plus 2 for conference) Basics: "6 weeknight points": 4 meets must be one on one duals, 2 others can be a little creative - leaving room for 6 duals, or 4 duals and a "triple dual" 12 other points to play with left, that the state has left alone for you to figure out what is best for your program - 6 tourney's, 12 individual duals, etc....... however you see best as the leader of your team
  7. Forfeits - MN's proposed solution

    "It may or may not decrease the number of forfeits, but won't increase the overall participation." totally agree Coach Coop Ive been at both small school and big school and I don't like this for either school. Eliminating weight classes at the big school means less kids wrestle at the big schools, decreasing number of wrestlers. While understandably hard to do, it is all about creative scheduling, and marketing to keep the dual interesting (for schools of all sizes)- not cutting weight classes. Don't just think strict traditional dualsif that doesn't work for your program - current rules for scheduling allow for many different formats of meets

  15. NFHS Survey--Please get this in ASAP

    Question 10 id like to see the rule be something like "weigh anywhere in that weight class or above" but can't go down to the next weight class until your decent plan allows. Example: a kid that wrestled 113 but can not weight below 112.1....every time he weighs 112.0 or less it is non-qualifying - all this kid did was wake up in the morning weighing less or peed, or whatever - but he obviously isn't trying to go 106 that day....and possibly maybe ever - but he keeps missing weight. Id love to see the "calculator/spreadsheet" take real world into account that pizza eating/fluctuating teenagers sometimes just weight less and sometimes weigh more without cutting weight. As long as they are withing their weight class Id like to see it count......just no dropping to the next weight until the plan allowed.
