    Am I the only one here that has watched “Cool Runnings”?
  2. How about those wrestlebacks?

    This person speaks my language. Not asking to change the whole system. 3 concerning things that need to changed in my opinion that would make the system much better and you should hear less belly aching. 1. At sectionals all rat tails wrestle other rat tails so wrestlers don't get knocked out the first round that don't deserve to. I get that they may not qualify anyways but wrestling to 5th sometimes makes the difference for the team title at sectionals. 2. At regionals find a better way to find the alternate other than the wrestler that got beat by the winner. Which usually means it was a 4th placer from sectionals. Sometimes the alternate. 3. Try to find the best 4 at each semi state and the alternate. I am totally fine with if you lose the first round you are out then figuring something out from the ticket round. There have been a few options thrown out that would suffice. Anything is better than what we do now.
  3. Mappes vs South?

    Yep. We teach our kids to attack and if you get near the out of bound lines go back to the center. If you do go out of bounds run back to the center. You do that enough times the ref usually gets the hint.

    I would even be okay with this. Then 6th placer is your alternate. Would keep more people in the stands for the semi finals also.
  5. Worst draw

    I accidentally deleted someones post on this thread thinking it was mine because I wasn't paying attention. So if your post is missing. Sorry. I can't handle the power.
  6. Worst draw

    Pretty much since if you had the 2 best kids in the same semi state they would be on opposite brackets anyways and meet in the finals. I believe the way they do it is 1 and 4 are on the same side of the bracket at State and would meet in the semi-finals. And 2 and 3 are on the other side of the bracket. So they would be automatically separated. But that does mean you could almost figure out the brackets ahead of time by knowing who seed 1 and 2 you would be able to shuffle 6 other wrestlers around to where they would be. Also we all know these are just discussions and they will not be happening. But passes the time talking about how we could improve the system. Which I love our State and our tourney. I just want things like this in place.
  7. Worst draw

    I would say 160 gets the number 1 and 152 gets the 2. Or at that time since they met the first criteria they could look for past years performance and if there is nothing there than possibly win percentage.
  8. Worst draw

    As far as State seeding goes it would be pretty simple I would think for criteria for the top 2 only guys. Last years placing at that weight. Last years placing at another weight. If neither one of those 2 things come into play. Do like we do now. I get it you will get some stud freshman come through or a kid that go beat out in the ticket round last year. But at least we don't see 2 kids that were under the lights last year see each other in the semi finals and this takes any judgement calls out of the equation.
  9. Worst draw

    The only thing that is seeded in some manner is sectionals. Regionals goes totally off of placement. Semistate is blind draws based on your placement just like State.
  10. Great wrestler

    The apple doesn't fall far from that tree. Good people.
  11. How about those wrestlebacks?

    I don’t really care if you like them because you enjoy watching kids get screwed by being a part of a flawed system. Bottom line is this isn’t how the sport of wrestling is setup so get the corn out of your teeth and wake up. Congrats on all that qualified and good luck next week. The fight will continue.

    Take your data and shove it up your ..... This sport is all the little guys sometimes have. Especially ones with some Napoleon Syndrome going on. I am still mad they increased it to 106.
  13. All semi states deserve credit

    You can have Carroll. No one likes them.
  14. All semi states deserve credit

    Maybe we should get Wawassee, Plymouth, and Warsaw back.
