  1. Yep. Sure would be like Christmas come early if number 3 could go through.
  2. https://www.mma-core.com/videos/Mirsad_Bektic_vs_Darren_Elkins_Full_Fight_UFC_209_Replay/10167059 Crazy! That eye gash was really really bad.
  3. Someone take his keyboard!!! My vote is still Angel though.
  4. The only thing I am scared of anymore is a fart. That has to do with age.
  5. Should Joe change the name of the website to indianaclasswrestling.com ? Every topic seems to be about it. Reminds me of CNN and Trump.
  6. You can keep Carmel but personally I wouldn't mind HSE only because my buddies son goes there and he is a good kid.
  7. I am just saying when the statement is made that you have to draw the line somewhere..... The answer is yes. If we didn't have the Delaware County schools we would be even smaller. Go ahead and give us Mishawaka we would love it. Not sure they would.
  8. The South also has Santa Clause Indiana. That isn't fair at all!!! Free soda all day. Like Joe said Fort Wayne has the least amount of students and the most small schools. Gerrymander that.
  9. How far off am I on this map? I couldn't spend a ton of time on this. As far as land goes I see disproportions here and it isn't up North.
  10. Carroll is Fort Wayne. Hence the name Fort Wayne Carroll.
  11. Okay one out of 6 schools had no fear.
  12. With that said there is probably a good chance that both Carroll and Homestead will move into the SAC. (FWCS conference) Since we got kicked out of the NHC a few years ago because they were scared of us.
  13. There are 2 middle schools. Blackhawk that feeds to Snider. Saint Vincents that feeds to Dwenger.
  14. I have been interested recently on the the re-alignments we had. When did Wawasee, Warsaw, and Plymouth all change to Merriville/East Chicago? Who did we replace them with? What all schools changed? You are right about Allen County not producing like it should. FWCS dropping middle school definitely did not help they use to produce at least a few state placers and even had years with multiple State champs. The surrounding schools have never been big wrestling schools and many families have moved to those. I would put Carroll, Leo, New Haven and Homestead on the radar for the schools that need to start producing more, unless we can get FWCS to get back to it's glory days. But that may be more difficult since there are many more factors that go into it. Sports are one of the first things to go in a public school system that is already struggling for funding and keeping their head above the water just meeting the testing requirements they now have. Just look at the bus crisis they have. Many kids have to walk to school and in many places there isn't even side walks along the path to the school. So do you think they have buses that run for extra curricular activities? It is a pretty tough battle. The sad thing is we all know what the wonderful sport of wrestling can do for those kids that may have other things missing in their life. Carroll has stepped up and been doing their job. They have a couple years with tough Friday nights but I am sure that will come around. Leo had a great year last year and it was a little down this year with just missing punching the ticket for a couple kids. New Haven qualified a couple and gave it run. Homestead qualified one and had 2 last year with one placer (We are working hard to make that even better). I know the Warrior Elite has been doing a good job of getting some quality kids in there but that can be expensive for some families. Carroll runs a RTC that any wrestler can go to with a USA wrestling card and when someone gets back with us from the ISWA, Homestead would like to run a RTC on Tuesdays. So things are being done in Allen County but the FWCS problem is a difficult one.
