  1. 1 pound allowance @ state **Confirmed**

    According to an email forwarded to me from Coach Tonte, there will be an extra pound on Saturday, so that they do not need to make the same weight each day. So, 109 Friday and 110 Saturday. Robert said he would send an email in the morning to everyone. That being said, I would wait until you received that email to start banking on an extra pound Saturday morning. I always err on the side of caution when telling kids about a weight allowance.
  2. Seeding Meeting Change???

    Back door politics... these are our regional reps that are here to help us make decisions; and it was a unanimous one. Not all decisions are easy or uncontroversial, but everyone in the room thought it was in best interest. We had to make a decision on the spot, and no doubt we stand behind that. Please don’t question my ethics.
  3. Seeding Meeting Change???

    "Two equal kids if one wrestles a weaker schedule(more forfeits and weaker actual wrestlers) they will have more forfeits, but also a better record to offset those forfeits." That was your actual quote above, not mine. I just think matches wrestled paints a more accurate portrait of who a wrestler is.
  4. Seeding Meeting Change???

    I guess my point is that not counting forfeits doesn't drop your seed, but actually gets your wrestlers closer to people that have wrestled a weaker schedule and a more appropriate seed. There are points to be made and I appreciate reading them (hard to get to page 8), but the intentions are made to reward people for not seeking forfeits. The point about dodging athletes has always been there before this rule was put in place. It's been a topic on this board every year.
  5. Seeding Meeting Change???

    Joe, will other schools not also have forfeits? And potentially more?
  6. Depth of 126

    What are the other reasons?
  7. Seeding Meeting Change???

    Forfeits will not allow a wrestler with 10 matches to go unseeded. If they have 10 matches, including forfeits, they can be seeded.
  8. Team State Video

    I appreciate all of the feedback on the video a team state. It was important for me to get the event streamed this year, and it is clear that there was a demand for it. I am sorry if it was not perfect. As this is my first year being involved in that decision making process, I can assure you that we will take all of this into account next year when planning. I am very pleased with all of the work that the many people put into this tournament. It really is a team effort. But I can already tell you that you are correct there are areas we can do better at. Please feel to email me at gratliff@rbbschools.net with any feedback. Merry Christmas!
  9. Team State

    I heard from a few coaches that there were concerns over there videos being available to be seen after team state. For scouting purposes, they didn’t want people to be able to access film on their individual. It was important for me to still stream the tournament though because it is such a good one. Because of that, I asked that matches not be archived.
  10. Team state was always my favorite time of year when I was growing up. I have many memories of wrestlers that didn't have the same credentials as the big names and then beating them or preventing a pin and really stepping up for their team. It really is a site to see the big guns go at it. You can watch the tournament live by going here: Live-streaming And the track wrestling link is here: Trackwrestling link Good luck to everybody!
  11. Team State Possible Matchups

    Good news too... It will be live-streamed this year on trackwrestling if you cannot make it to the Coliseum!

  13. Live vs Drilling

    We mostly just work on our bridging.
  14. When a team drops from an event...

    I think a bigger question is why do so many teams drop out of a tournament in season? Not honoring contracts makes it really difficult on everybody.
