  3. Skin check debate

    Oh - and to many "states" now!
  4. Skin check debate

    I do agree there...........your the kinda guy doing it RIGHT!!!
  5. Skin check debate

    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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  19. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    That is true. No sport does. Other sports don't have weight classes either though. We are the sport "everyone" can do. I'm glad those small seniors have a place to wrestle, without the small underclassman all of them would have to bump up and be the tiny kid. My 98lbs soaking weight wrestler, even if on JV wrestling, wrestling kids that weigh 115 would not be very encouraging to him. Im trying to keep him convinced now that wrestling off-season at 100lbs will be much more fun for him - i hope. I don't disagree with what you all are saying. I agree that it is mostly an underclassman weight class. It is what it is. Just as 220 and HWT have lots of seniors. Im just saying I like that an undersized freshman, or even a senior, has a weight class for them. For the same reason I am a fan of class wrestling - the small school can't help being small - i am a fan for keeping a weight class for the small kid - he can't help being small either.
  20. 2018 Sectional Forfeit Data

    I'm never a fan of raising the lowest weight - its not about how many forfeits there are at that one, it is how little some high school freshman still are. Went to one tourney this year where every 106 was under 100lbs. Although there were some forfeits, we don't need a 90lbs kid wrestling a kid 110 or heavier IMO
  21. from years ago at the meeting when the concept of team state started in this fashion and then evolved into the larger fomat this was the thought: make sure there are teams from each semi-state. Under the "old format" when IHSAA ran the team state duals a team from every semi-state would qualify in most sports (basketball, football, baseball, etc..) as you work toward state you have one team from each semi-state making the finals four and then the two moving on. If the number one and number 2 teams would beat each other out at sectionals only one would move on. so much of the automatic qualifier is to get representation from the entire state - but allowing the point system here to hopefully bring back in some of the top teams - which is why the format has grown to encompass more teams
  22. Academic All-State was due Tuesday - so get them in ASAP! Use this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSejH5guDwH_7HH87_FN9DaMFN77B3FcICm1CHU9ZjBOo6k9ww/viewform some columns have been added so that a college coach can contact the kid, and that the college coach can see their ACT/SAT scores. We get email after email each year from colleges asking for more info on our AAS kids, hopefully this helps them both out!!! The list will be sent to all colleges that have wrestling. Must be nominiated by a member of the IHSWCA - not a member yet? https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfk03NFI7cv2-0m3QzNxqZvwG7xsc4x1LNk5UZ_YGuku7rRCw/viewform

    forfeits are spread across the board, elimating them doesn't help - create need! Meaning, when you need 14, you push to get 14 or more and sometimes fall short. Eliminate to 12 weights, then you push to get 12 or more kids. The need draws kids, even if we fall short. Telling people we will settle for less kids could be taking a step back. The less weight classes there are, the less there will be a need for kids for wrestling. on 106 - its not always the quality of wrestling (which i don't think there is a lack of), or even how many 106 there are, it can be about how light some of the kids get below 106. I have had years where both my 106 are below 90lbs, this year 98lbs. Was at a tourney once where all 106 were below 100. doesn't matter how many of them there are, its saftey for them. Keeping a weight for these kids is a must.
  24. Hoosier Hills Conference

    Done: Ordered for concessions and coaches
  25. Seeding Meeting Change???

    So wrestling a weaker schedule makes your record better. Regardless of forfeits or not. Correct. that was the same way before this rule, it’s the same after this rule. A kid with a tougher schedule may have more losses. That was the same before this rule. It’s the same after this rule. Forfeits dont show strength of schedule. If true, that is the same before and after this rule. Unethical people existed before this rule and exist after this rule This just stops some getting seeded higher due to having many forfeits as the reason. Yes coaches can dodge. But what about the kid that was never dodged, never was hurt, never missed a match. He was 15-15. That kid was getting out behind someone that was 15-13 with 5 forfeits. this rule simply says compare matches wrestled to matches wrestled not forfeits to forfeits or strength of forfeit or reason for forfeit no scenario will ever be perfect due to many many reasons- but this is better in 4 years of its changed back can you imagine what people used to the rule will say “can u believe this new rule wants to use forfeits to decide who is better”
