I don't really think it counts as 'BIG' unless you have two returning SQ's, or two top 10 ranked guys. Saying its a 'BIG' match because two clowns who had weak schedules all year run into each other isn't valid.
Any matches in particular that lead you to make that remark?
I am not sure that clowns is not a bit harsh. You have to wrestle who you are scheduled.
I see several where ONE of the kids had a good record due to very weak schedule, but not sure that I have seen any where BOTH were unranked and had inflated records.Example:
lovejoy vs frane
Lovejoy has a decent record but come on, Bishop Luers is a non-wrestling school in a non-wrestling conference. The toughest team in the conference was Snider and they never met in a dual all season.
When your competition hands you a handful of forfeits and you are wrestling the likes of Concordia four times, South Side six times (the kid that wrestled 113 all season did not even make it to Sectionals,) North Side twice, Wayne, and Northrop and you throw in wrestling "power houses" like Wabash, Park Tudor, John Glenn, Broad Ripple, Whitko, Heritage, and Oak Hill who were all very weak at 113 this season from what I have seen, it is pretty easy to inflate a record.
Heck he could not even win the New Haven sectional.
Six losses sure but I bet he only saw four or five decent wrestlers all year and none in the category of Frane, Phillips, Glogouski, Moser, or Flickinger to name a few.
It could be a good match but I do not see how it could be considered a 'BIG' match. Heck it looks like Lovejoy has a senior from Bellmont to worry about first, not sure but I do not think that the Knight's have a good record against the Braves.
Frane's competition will be in the semi-final against Phillips. If not for the luck of the draw that could have been the SS Final match.
