  1. I hate IU everything but can't help think that Angel is racking up some big dogs in his first recruiting class! Good for the Hoosiers! But as always, GO BLUE!

    Best looking coaching staff in the state

    C'mon Poppe, that last picture of Mason does not show his current hair style, or lack thereof. 😁

    Colton Cummings

    Ummmmm I think he wants to know how one of Indiana's best wrestlers is doing at the next level? Didn't realize a point was trying to be made here.....

    class wrestling

    Ok. Case closed.

    On this day 1985-Big Match

    RIP to the "Coach!" Can't forget how defend against double chicken wings!

    Best Weight Ever?

    I have a bias because of my brother. But 106 in 2012 & 106 in 2013 were pretty stacked weight classes when you consider how many state titles those guys ended up winning. Plus a bunch of those guys are still kicking butt and competing in college.

    Define OW

    Still over here waiting for the finals matches to be on a random draw. Poor big boys don't have nearly the amount of people watching when 11:00 pm on a Saturday rolls around.....

    Year round wrestling hurting the sport?

    I only have one knock on year round wrestling. Leadership skills are lost through the process (FOR THE MOST PART). It is the fact that year-round wrestling integrates a singular mindset into that wrestler, meaning they only care about their performance and not too much about their teammates' performance. Dedicating all of the hard work in the off season to their own skills sort of creates a mindset of "ONLY ME & MY WRESTLING MATTERS!" I feel that this then limits the leadership skills of these wrestlers who should be able to lead their teams during the season. I've seen this first hand at many of the programs I've been involved with. It isn't a huge or terrible deal that these guys aren't necessarily the best leaders of their teams, I just kind of get let down when the best wrestlers in the room only care about themselves and not the overall betterment of the squad.

    I would say anyone from the boards who gets front row media seats saved for them during state weekend should be in the HoF. Those people tend to be the most important and vital for this website.
  12. Would be very surprised if Garrett didn't end up winning the tourney.
  13. Agreed! West Point creating a nice little pipeline there in Yorktown.

    Extra training Forbidden?

    Let's be real with ourselves here, Coach Tonte and the other highly successful teacher/coaches are the exception, not the rule. I keep thinking of all the non-powerhouse schools that produced state champs. I'm almost certain that those kids who ended up being state champs at their mediocre program had stellar off-season/academy coaching which helped catapult them to success. I think it could go either way. Think of it this way; a kid who has Michael Jordan as their coach will have no need to go to anyone else for coaching, since you have the BEST at hand. BUT those who don't have Michael Jordan as their coach have to go elsewhere to get better.
