    Fort Wayne Semi-State gets a POUND

    The counties along the northern boarder got an ENORMOUS amount of snow today. Elkhart County was buried all day. Some booked rooms and left town Thursday to avoid snowmageden.

    POTENTIAL ticket round matches

    I feel like I am beating a dead horse, but the IHSAA (and most competitive people I know) have only one goal for the entire tournament... crown 14 individual champions. They don't care about class our second chances. I can't quote the commissioner, but in football, basketball, volleyball... you lose once and you're done. I know wrestling is individual but the mentality is the same in the IHSAA office - crown one champion in each class and move on. Know it. Live it. Love it.
  4. This is AMAZING! You can only really truly appreciate it if you have witnessed the Logansport Regional though.

    Dodging matchups

    Point your car east and don't stop until you're in Ohio. We don't want it.

    In addition... If you don't know Joey Walker 152 from Mishawaka you will soon. Sat out most of last year due to a football injury. Skipped football this year and focused on popping cans of whoopa$$ on the weekends! Crossword puzzle clue: 6 letter word for hammer - Levitz 170 Prairie Heights. If you see a Levitz in a fight with a bear, help the bear. 195 & 220 will be fun to watch from the first match on Friday thru the final. Gonna be a gauntlet. 275... I am very curious - no love for the Blazer from Elkhart time will tell

  8. As always, Steve Krah does justice to the story. Hats off to Coach Whickcar for and staff for a storybook season last year - capped off with a sectional title that came down to 5 teams in the final round. As for Xander, I'll be one of the most vocal of all his fans. If anyone has watched this team in recent years you'd remember Xander b/c he used to be the one who would almost get disqualified for using all of his blood time every match! He has always been a gritty, tough competitor. With a coach like Whickcar it was only a matter of time until Xander was top tier. Like the other outstanding athletes Whickcar has produced thus far: Tredway, Guerra, Boyd... Xander is also an outstanding person. He is the kind of person you want your kid to hangout with (for help with homework, character, or mat technique)! Thanks again to Steve for always supporting wrestling and telling the wrestling story from the Thanksgiving tournaments all the way to the 'Big Dance'.

    Too Much

    We used to keep a bath scale in the kitchen. You'd load your plate and step on the scale. Nap, run, plate and on the scale again - repeat.
  10. This is amazing - post of the year! I can't wait for Saturday!
  11. Those of us from the north that follow wrestling closing have seen this coming too! Congrats to the coaching staff! HUGE Austin Moore fan after last weekend.
  12. Lots of good news coming out of PH!
  13. I was there when he spoke about these topics and several points are being overlooked: Duals vs. tournaments - Families have said that they have an issue with driving an hour+ to sit in a gym on a Saturday to watch their child compete for 30 or less minutes. Uniforms - Students have expressed that participating in the singlet is a sole reason for never starting. In my opinion, whether it is a dual meet or a tournament we need to get better at promoting our own love for the sport. I think about the two high schools in my town and the most well attended contests in football and basketball. Football - inflatable tunnel entry for intros, a jumbo tron, fireworks, a tailgate... Basketball - honoring alumni, dance teams during breaks, shirt giveaways... At any other football or basketball game WITHOUT these things and the attendance is embarrassing. Now, when I think about the most packed wrestling meets I have ever been to: shirts tossed out when introducing athletes, DJ, spotlight, inflatable tunnel for intros, fog machine, cheerleaders... If this is what it takes to draw interest to our sport; to attract today's high school athletes then shame on us for not doing it state-wide.

    IS THIS LEGAL???

    I see two mistakes regarding this call: 1) In 'freestyle terms' this is clearly brutality as FS referees call it. These are not international level athletes. They are high school kids. This is no different than the NFL helmet contact rules this season. Sport is sport, a move like this is more like gladiators. 2) If that is not brutality, then the referee needs to call the fall so that this kid doesn't have to get up and risk having that happen again! If I were scoring this match it would have been a five point move; 3 for the first bounce and 2 more back exposure for the second bounce : There is no place in wrestling for this. It has been said before, keep those kinds of moves inside the cage. If you agree with this call, then you are saying that this move should be allowed at every local tourney and state finals. Simply nonsense.
