The IHSAA's big argument against wrestlebacks was that they thought they would take too long to complete. Yet, when they cut out the Team Semistate this was the bone that we were thrown. The exact same number of matches wrestling back from the quarterfinals would take...for kids who lost twice at the Regional. I have been in the room when the IHSWCA proposed wrestlebacks to the IHSAA Executive Committee, in fact I helped make the proposal a few years ago, and the decision seemed to have already been made before the presentation even began. The AD's like Janis Qualizza, Dennis Bunda, and Debb Stevens on the EC listened intently and voted in favor of WB's but most of the Principals have their heads so far up Bobby & Blake's ass that they can't see the forest for the trees.
