    Weird and sad story about former IU wrestler

    yeah me too...It's pretty sad to think about...I'll admit I did a lot of research..he was dismissed from the IU team fro selling fake drugs to an undercover cop and had some other run ins...pretty sad

    Weird and sad story about former IU wrestler

    I really hate to admit this, but somehow he had eligibility and wrestled at Delaware Valley as a senior and beat me at the regional when I was a junior. He was the national runner up that year. He looks pretty dang rough in this picture compared to how I remember him.
  5. Early is in the finals as well!!!
  6. Humphrey wins again...tighter than the score appears...won on scrambling and a nice high gut!

    Yes. All valid points and good talk. Again, I seriously don't have a solution and it is hard to predict. It was a cool tournament the last two years and I'll be sad to not be a part of it this year. As for my comments above it was not a knock on any team or kids listed. Purely opinion and perception.

    Team State Vote-In Results

    My initial argument doesn't matter if it's Rochester, Southridge, or somebody else that is in. I'm blown away that we didn't get back in. I wasn't so much hung up on the Peru argument. That was more my buddy lol. I don't care who we could have potentially replaced. And after more research, maybe Gavit got hosed. Simply put, some teams make it based on where they're at and I don't know that the adjustments do justice. Something needs to be changed. I don't have an answer as to what! For example, Jimtown brings some good kids back, and would kill us at an individual tourney with their firepower. It's not unreasonable to think we COULD win 8-9 matches against them in a dual. Some of their returners our returners have beat. Now, we would be likely coming back from down 18 with those studs, but who is to say we couldn't beat them in a dual next year? I am NOT saying we beat them, but I'm saying maybe we could. So that being said, let's just assume for my argument that Jimtown will be undefeated going into team state with their toughest match being New Prairie before team state. (unless their schedule changes) So Jimtown gets seeded top 4 hypothetically and will probably place top 4. So if we could have a dual that is right there neck and neck or possibly beat Jimtown it seems wrong we aren't there. This is not a knock on JImtown. They are freakin' tough and placed 5th this year and had a crazy tourney team. It's just an example of a team that could possibly be beat in a dual, at least a nice dual, but we couldn't touch in a tourney. Yes the 152 was a specific, but the 6 regional qualifiers compared to 10 was not directed at anybody...I made two numbers up and went with that...the comment about teams getting kids through to regional was actually about a different regional on the other side of the state where they qualified this year and actually may have scored more points than us in qualifying the prior year. At least the scoring was close. I do not have a better alternative. I'm just griping and it doesn't seem right.

    To be honest I went back and reread what I said and I really shouldn't have even posted, but you are 100% right

    The schedule makes a difference to me. Just one example, because I've got to get back to work, but one of the returners from a team that qualified has the same exact record our kid had at the same weight. Our kid tech'd that kid early into the 2nd period. I think that could be the case at a few weight classes. Sure we didn't have the best schedule in the state, but it was pretty good this year. We had numerous times this year where our .500 kid would beat a kid who was 25-10, or whatever. Our individuals ran into Al Smith, Yorktown, Jimtown x2, Prairie Heights x3, Central Noble x 2, Carroll x2/3 times, Indian Creek, Wawassee, Northridge, Leo, and other good individuals and decent teams. So, just looking at Heights, Jimtown, Yorktown, Carroll, and Central Noble you could see how some of my middle light weights could rack up some losses.
