    Brooks..UFC 228

    Brooks in another controversial decision ending. It wasn’t a very exciting fight but he seemed to completely control the 2nd and 3rd round of the fight. Despite that the judges somehow came up with a split decision. Lucky this time Brooks was on the winning end of that call. Back in the win column and hopefully taking the short notice win will help him get a chance quality fight in the future.

    Brooks..UFC 228

    Roberto Sanchez on the Fight Pass part of the card. Sanchez is 8-1 (1-1 in UFC), with a solid submission game. Tough fight to take on short notice for Brooks, so hopefully his team saw some advantages a wrestler could have over Sanchez in the grappling department. Brooks is on a two fight slide, which has been enough for the UFC to drop people in the past. Hope he can find his way back in the win column in this one.

    IHPO Predictions

    I predict the winner will eat 72 pancakes in 8 min. Oh wait that’s the other contest at a different location down the street.
  5. Sounds like she’ll have a few solid training partners. https://www.hawkeyewrestlingclub.com/new-team-members/

    Article on Sarah Hildebrandt

    She’s spoke about these change on a few post trials and FinalX video interviews too. I’m sure the videos are up somewhere on track, Flo, and/or USA Wrestling’s YouTube channel.

    For those of you on Netflix this maybe worth view.

    An Idea to Think About.

    Some of you are mentioning that it makes sense some of these kids to move from small weak programs with the lack of a decent coaching have a shot at real success. But for several, not all, of the high profile transfers/freshman move-ins they comes from a districts with a decent programs and a knowledgeable active coaches. Yeah the program they left may not have been perineal top 20 and the coach may not be considered a top name in Indiana coaching, but they are not lacking in the numbers, coaching department, and have some success individually and/or team wise. So for many of these guys I can’t trust that the reason they left was due to a deplorable practice partners or a elementary level coach. I’d rather some just call a spade a spade and just say those guys wanted a few elite level training partners around their weight (maybe even some college coaches watching due to those kid), were sold on the top coaches reputation, and they like the idea of possible being part a top 10 team in state. Heck some of the “average” transfers are doing the same thing cause the parents usually think that’s all the kids lacking to get to the next level too. Some people may not like those reasons, but its more honest than to act like several of these talented kids were somehow under poor conditions at their original locations. I do do also agree that the ability to supplement your training by being close to an academy or a private trainer can really help you. I’ve see that this extra bonus sometimes helps to keep you at your district school, but other times the connection you develop to those top level academy kids ends up attracting you to their school for the HS season.

    An Idea to Think About.

    Actually most of what you said is exactly what has happened to gymnastics over the past few decades and probably more so that what we are seeing at the soccer level. I tried to express that same point in an earlier post but the point of my message got jumbled up. We are indeed losing them completely from HS athletics, not just transfers to top teams, which is leading to less competition and dwindling programs in some areas. Similar to what we could see in wrestling but due to kids going the club route not due to the top schools gathering to much transfer talent. You expressed what I was trying to say pretty well in the opening part of this post.

    Netflix: ZION

    It’s a short documentary and some of the scenes a are reinactments of previous events, but overall a solid message of working through adversity. Should remind you a one of the ESPN E60 stories.

    An Idea to Think About.

    Not to stray too far off the topic far, but gymnastics is only sorta a good comparison. In many area’s the demise of gymnastics was due to girls transferring schools or only clustering in certain hotbed locations. A large part of it was due to elite level girls just not coming out for their HS programs. Those were getting training at their academy and higher level competition at their multistate meets, so didn’t want to sacrifice some of that development by taking a few months “off” for HS level stuff. For many HS gymnastics coaches their biggest issue is trying to convince a few of girls it would be fun to represent the school. Only a handful of teams in the state can consistently get a few of those girls out and they often are one which are connected to a high level academy with their coaching staff at the HS too. So gymnastics has a similarity in terms of the talent leaving for a better location. But unlike wrestling much of their talent was just leaving HS competition causing teams to collapse, rather than girls transferring to the already elite HS programs. I’m sure at this point some do transfer but a lot of that at this point maybe be due to the sheer lack of teams available.

    USAW New Weights/Age Groups

    I’m guessing that a PeeWee age group (U6) can be added in at the state level.

    Isaac Jordan to IU

    I’d say losing Davis could be a bigger reason. But the Jordan connection may have helped with him thinking more about IU. Along with a lightweight guy like Escobedo leading the squad.
  14. Brownsburg just put a ton of money into redeveloping their downtown area. Now it’s getting all fancy and nice for people now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.indystar.com/amp/691539002
  15. Must be Brownsburgs redeveloped down town district.

    Moves and Transfers

    If you go down the road of being in a different district to start your freshman year and you will have a very long list of wrestlers. Although I think you could top it off with Jason Tsirtsis to CP and a Chad Red to NP.

    Paul Konrath to IU

    He did say at one point a big reason he picked Wisconsin was due to Davis. A change in coaches/styles can make a difference for some athletes even if most others feel it could be a positive for the program. Isaac Jordan being at IU may have gave him a connection, not to mention having a head coach with a lightweight background. Hopefully Konrath can help IU’s lightweight crew as Escobedo works to build the program back up.
  18. Cejudo uses his wrestling and improved striking awareness to take the 125 UFC title away from one of the best P4P champions in UFC history. Fighters with mainly wrestling backgrounds are again starting to overtake most of the UFC titles.

    Fargo List

    Well the two Big 10 wrestlers are well aware that this battle is coming in the future. If Lucas can pack on some more muscle to frame he’s going to give several people some fits. Should be fun.

    Fargo List

    Junior Greco National Champion Lucas Davison! Showed a nice variety of techniques in his last match including a lift to a 4 point throw. Lucas now stands amoung the rare group of wrestlers who have been able a accomplish both a Freestlye and Greco Junior National Title in the same year at Fargo.
