    Isaac Jordan to IU

    Agreed a Ohio connection could be great.

    Isaac Jordan to IU

    Solid addition to the staff. Really would like to see IU shell out the money for one more quality coach to help with both room development and to entice potential recruiting.
  3. HS Math position is open. We also have a few elementary positions, as well.
  4. For the next school year Seymour Community Schools currently has openings for a MS Language Arts, a temporary Health Sciences position at the HS, several Elementary teacher. There may be an opening at the HS for a Social Studies teacher soon, as well as a few other MS and HS positioning I have been informed of that should come open at the start of the summer. We are looking for candidates that would be willing assist with wrestling and wanting to transition into a head coaching position with our program in the next few years. Any candidate willing to also assist with the football program would be a bonus. If interested please complete an application form with Seymour Community Schools https://www.applitrack.com/scsc/onlineapp/ Also contact our head wrestling coach Todd Weaver at weavert@scsc.k12.in.us
  5. Having a solid leg lace transition off a takedown is a very deadly thing.

    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    This could be the greatest troll job ever. Started by innocently backing into a topic about something else to post a negative statement about the style. Then playing out the long con game of questioning the style with the intent of getting responses about Greco's importance. Even bringing in Snyder at one point to be your accomplice in poking the bear. Then finally finishing off with a challenge designed to actually increase Greco participation. Hats off to you sir. Well played.
  7. The HS Social Studies position mentioned above will be opening shortly. Get your information into the school and Coach Weaver if you are interested.

    Junior WTT

    Nice to see Red venturing back into the Freestyle relm. He’s not been in very many Freestyle competitions in the last several years. His Cadet Fargo title is the last one I even recall.

    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    I’d say it’s really too many of the top college prospects don’t care as much about Greco, more than saying the coaches don’t. If more of the top college prospects participated Greco to get more head to head battle I’d say the college coaches would look at it more.

    Micic at European Championships

    Thanks for the updates Maligned. All I was getting was the final scores Good to hear the added details Hopefully after this weigh in experience he can develop a better management plan so his body recovers a little smoother going forward. That two day cut can not be fun, but with a little tweaking to his current plan it maybe more manageable. I’m guessing several athletes will have to make similar tweaks if they want to put up their best showing on day two.

    Micic takes 3rd with a fall in his medal match.

    Weird and sad story about former IU wrestler

    Not sure why throwing the wrestling info into a story about a person doing something dumb is relevant in this case. Not saying the story isn’t worth reporting, but I don’t see why it’s work in thewrestling info is relevant (or if did any college sport). Seems we should be seeing a lot more national stories about dumb former college athletes, cause I’m sure he’s not the only one making some dumb choices. Since this isn’t related to the sport and he’s not know nationally as a notable representstive of that sport it seem like poor choice to include it in the article.

    NFHS Wrestling Rules Update

    Well I feel I need to do more for you to earn that type of vote. Here’s a diagram showing the move. As I said not one you are really going to look or have success with anyway. http://www.owoa.org/pdf files/Nelson-Cradle-Illegal.pdf

    NFHS Wrestling Rules Update

    Kinda hard to put someone in the actual move. In most cases you may lock it up but actually being able to turn someone successfully would be a struggle against most wrestlers. Its mostly of those moves you would just fall into when trying to get creative as someone fights off a half. Probably good to make it illegal with the full nelson aspect of it, but it wasn't very practical in most situation to start with.
  15. https://www.indystar.com/amp/554281002 Also, good showing of talent from the other nominees A. Garcia, G. Rooks, L. Davison, H. Watts, M. Parris, N. Warren, & B. Curtis.
  16. I think the idea they are pushing out is that by spreading out the event in hopes of promoting the sport and the finalist over a longer period of time and in more wrestling hotspots. The behind the scenes answer is likey if thry can hype the event correctly thry will end up making at least twice as much money from three separate events (really 4 if you count WTT) as what they were previously making with the single day competitor.
  17. Top guys from US Open qualify for the World Team Trials event And in most cases are seeded in that order for the event. At the Junior and Cadet levels they may still doing it the old way I’m not sure. But on the Senior level they will have the new Final X series to determine the World Championship spot In a none World Medalist weight class the winner of the US Open will automatically advanced to the Final X series. That person will await the winner of the World Team Trials in desperate best of 3 match event to determine the World Team spot. At a weight class where a returning World Medalist exists that medalist already advanced to the desperate Final X best of 3 series. In that senecio the winner of the US Open will just advanced to the end of the World Team Trials. There they will face the WTT challlenge tournament winner for the other Final X spot. The idea of the Final X was to one give a seperate event that further highlights the final match to make the World Team. And two to give the finalist a chance to recover and give their best possible match to make the World Team. In the past the tired and banged up winner of the WTT tournament would have to turn around that same day face a fresh previous World Medalist for the spot. To keep the reward of winning a world medal there rather than them being in the tournament too, Final X was created to help even the playing field for World Team Trials winner. Although the US Open winner still has that rest advantage over the trials tournament winner.

  18. He put the hurt on him too, 10-0 win.
  19. Sarah Hildebrandt U.S Open Champion at 53kg.
  20. Kayla Miracle U.S. Open Champ at 62kg. Under the new advancement system she’s now in the finals to make the World Team.
  21. It take an unstoppable force to move an immovable object. Coon is a mountain of a man, and be the keeper of our HWT spot for at least the next few years. Give Gable a few more years to grow into a true man mountain himself. When that happens we may see Gable claim the spot from him.
  22. Wright has definitely been a gamer when it comes to the last couple U.S. Opens. He's not under the radar as much as last year, but I'm sure people are over looking him due to having less of a resume. Hopefully, he can continue to show he's still the level of some of the top U.S. guys.
  23. Yes, being the only main international level freestyle talent from their federation he could have a lot of resources dedicated to just improving his success. If he can even win some of the smaller world events, that would really help them promote freestyle or wrestling in general in their country. From one of the last things I read regarding this possibility, their federation was open with the idea of branching out past Greco. I'm sure its a major win for Serbia to get someone with Micic talent who is willing to represent their flag. I can't blame him to taking this opportunity, especially if he's still has some roots in this country and they have presented him with great support plan.
  24. I believe he is eligible to wrestle for Serbia if he chooses based on being the son of a Serbian citizen. But once he competes under that nation at a Senior event he won’t be able to jump back to the US for future competitions, without applying and getting approve to transfer to another nation. And I believe that’s a one time only transfer. By representing Serbia he could gain more senior level international experience sooner and possibly get a stronger backing from their counties athletic program as one of the few international wrestlers they would have. On the other hand he wouldn’t be able to represent the US anytime soon. Nor would be eligible for any USAW based financial assistance, OTC senior level training camps, get an invite by USA wrestling to their international events, or have as much support from USA if something occurs during international travel or at the events. He would still have full reign of the Michigan RTC still and could still get invited to attend OTC practices as a guest nation. As well hopefully a USAW rep, due to the connection, would try to help him out if he was ever caught in a jam during international travel. Definitely a plus to get on the Senior Circuit quicker, but hopefully if he’s going the Serbia right they have their ducks in a row to provide the backing and support needed during the competitions.
