    Praying schools can find a way to start up and get football going. This will go a long way to determine our fate. Cases will continue to happen. My concern is that people will overreact when a positive case arises in the school. The number of hospital admissions and deaths are the real numbers to watch.

    Wrestling a Spring Sport

    Winter Sports - January & February Fall Sports - March & April Spring Sports - May & June I have been saying this to anyone that will listen. Shortened seasons are not ideal, but this might be the best and safest option for this year to try and "guarantee" seniors and all kids a school year and athletics. This also allows kids to play multiple sports. This would also give schools 20 weeks to figure out how to get back to live in-person school and educating kids in a safe manner, which should be the most important mission right now. Would also like to think that 6 months from now we will have a better handle and understanding on Covid 19 and be able to get back to normalcy. It is unnecessary to rush into a fall sports season, when we don't even know how school is going to work. Would hate to get to week 2 of football season and be right back where we were in March. Just my two cents... WE WILL WRESTLE AGAIN

    Yes. Nasir was very closed off and backed up for 5 minutes and 39 seconds. All the action was on the edge and kept getting whistled dead. Finally Jesse just finished a slam anyways and was hit for a point. When Nasir finally moved forward to take a shot Jesse scored and would have had a fall, but time expired. Once HS starts and he can get in a gym again I fully anticipate Jesse putting on some weight and hopefully being big enough to go 138. For now he will keep training and go 60 kilos at Junior Worlds, probably needs to get a little bigger for that to.

    I think there will be a vaccine by then. I assume that others believe the same thing. Here is my educated guess on how things may go. I think that the IHSAA will in fact start the football season. As soon as a handful of players from a few teams test positive Covid (notice that I did not say contract), the football season will be ended or postponed. Football season goes through a November and we all know what also happens in November. We all see that Covid has been and will be further politicalized. If you don’t believe that... just watch Fox News (If you want the republican side) or CNN (if you want the democrat side) today. I tend to watch both, and have came to the conclusion that both sides have completely gone crazy! I’m not here to say which side is right or wrong... I’m just stating the obvious. Politics will come into play. Bottom line.. until we get a vaccine and the election is over.... I wouldn’t plan on having a season. Again, it’s just a very educated guess from watching our country fall apart everyday in the media. I hope that I’m wrong.

    Interesting topic. If we are a go, I would venture to say we could have the best state tournament in the history of Indiana. If Ohio, Michigan and Illinois gets cancelled and we, by the grace of God, have a season. The amount of transfers to Indiana will be insane. It may pay to be a border school North, East and West!

    Professional Wrestling League

    In the wake of world events and the recent internal struggles of USA wrestling (via Pat Downey’s tweets), I’d been thinking of how to further grow the sport, I mean we have a lot of time right now anyway. Seeing FloWrestling produce this upcoming card for fans makes me wonder how often we could witness something like this, with wrestling being a dominant component of mixed martial arts, many fans are already familiar with it and try to emulate it as they see fit. It made me wonder about my idea for a professional wrestling league. Originally, I had made a thread that would professional league that would operate with a preseason, regular season, and postseason schedule, but then I said that these matches have to mean something bigger than before. The Best Wrestler in the World Every year, Franklin Community High School hosts their Grizzly Ironman Series tournament which sees wrestlers compete in matches that incorporate all three styles in a 6-minute match. One period Greco, one period Freestyle, one period Folkstyle... What if FloWrestling or any host at that decided to sanction professional matches with three 3-minute periods that incorporated all three styles? It would give fans a chance to become familiar with every style of wrestling there is and it would also give the argument of who “the best in the world” is more weight/value. At the end of the day, wrestling is wrestling. In mixed martial arts, the majority of fighters wrestle 15 minutes or 25 minutes for a championship, so the time limit shouldn’t be a factor, especially since most professional athletes set themselves apart from their amateur, collegiate, and high school counterparts (NBA vs. NCAA vs. FIBA). Add in title belts and weight classes and you could have wrestling on a bigger stage than it’s been before. Imagine Zhan Beleniuk vs. David Taylor for the Ironman World Middleweight Championship... Taylor has the advantage in Folkstyle being a two-time NCAA champion and Hodge Trophy winner, Beleniuk the two-time Greco-Roman world champion, and while Taylor is a Freestyle world champion, there is a lot to be worried about when squaring off against Beleniuk. Who’s the best in all styles? Who’s truly the best in the world? Just a thought.

    This might be a good place to learn about what others are doing as we prepare to get back into our rooms now. Are most just going back to practice as normal or does anyone else have 'small groups' inside of practice?

    Bellarmine moves from DII to D1

    Bellarmine University, a private D2 school located in Louisville Kentucky, across the river from Jeffersonville (IN), is moving up to the big leagues. https://intermatwrestle.com/articles/22052 I know they have Kent State lined up for one of their duals next season, not sure about the rest. A little shameless self promotion, but Jeffersonville will have three wrestlers wrestling for Bellarmine next season.

    I spoke to a good friend of mine yesterday night. We were discussing his upcoming return to the mat on the Division I level and if we would see a season at all this year. Amidst all of that, we briefly discussed a subject that's been mentioned and thrown around time and again, and it had to do with the lack of quality training for the next level in Indiana. Our conversation led me back to a thought I've had over the years while observing the sport on a state and national level: Wrestling will ALWAYS miss out on the top dollar in comparison to boxing, mixed martial arts, and other combat sports because there are too many gatekeepers in the sport with elitist mindsets. Why? There's just a general lack of resources throughout the state for those who wish to compete to truly get better, and while many clubs are geared towards youth wrestling, there isn't enough focus for those beyond high school. This isn't just an Indiana problem, though. From what I've learned, this is common across the nation. Too often, clubs close off their services to those after high school or college who don't have certain credentials. The USA Wrestling website even has a set criteria for an athlete to participate in a Regional Training Center (ex: You must place this high at this tournament to participate; You must have done this in high school to participate). It's actually kind of silly because you have so many young men and women who are avid fans of the art of wrestling with extensive knowledge along with some kind of talent, but because they didn't enjoy the same success as another wrestler, they have to potentially miss out on becoming better and no longer continue on in the sport. Most want to simply participate because it's fun. Notice how excited many wrestlers get for the spring and summer seasons because there are countless opportunities to compete in two new styles (Freestyle/Greco) or hybrid styles (Ironman) with wrestlers all over the state and country that they don't usually see. I remember my friends and I would be so excited for the spring and summer because we got to work on a variety of new moves and take on new challenges, but more importantly because there was no pressure. We didn't really worry about scholarships or team state titles, we just went out and did the sport we loved and had fun trying to make the travel teams, and that's the beauty of it all. Clubs miss out on so much money and numbers because they're too focused on the Division I prospects, and I'm not saying they shouldn't focus on them, but if the goal is to have our participation numbers up, we should be opening our doors to more than just the wrestlers who are top-ranked recruits and shift our focus to the entire wrestling community and be mindful of those who want to continue on in the sport, as well as those who want to learn it for self-defense, to get in shape, or to pick it up for the first time because they might have an interest in mixed martial arts, they saw the NCAA tournament on TV, or they happened to come across some sick Greco-Roman highlights. And let me clarify, I’m not saying every person who enters a wrestling room is an Olympic-caliber grappler, and to be quite honest with you, I’m not sure many want to be, but that shouldn’t be any reason they have to stop competing. You look in mixed martial arts, boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, taekwondo, etc., and you will see people of all ages in studios training (sometimes with people half or twice their age) to either stay in shape, learn self-defense, or compete in local tournaments for fun and continue to excel because they’re in a SPORT. It is for SPORT. Gatekeepers in wrestling have some of the worst attitudes though and will discourage people from entering. I’ve heard reasons being from how hard it is to wrestle to that toxic elite mentality, but you never hear boxing trainers or fighters discourage people from entering the gym to work on their craft, especially those willing to pay any amount. Here’s a testimony for y’all, though: Hassan Assad (better known as MVP in WWE) had left professional wrestling for a year. During his time off, he came across a gym in Houston known as Gracie Barra. He went inside and asked for information, and quickly signed up. By 2019, he’d been training for seven years and in that time been promoted to a purple belt, won several opens around the state of Texas, and qualified for the world championships twice all after the age of 30. That happens in so many other sports except wrestling. You don’t hear about guys picking up the sport in their 20s or 30s and excelling because, at least over here, it’s frowned upon. Not everyone is going to be Jordan Burroughs, and not many want to be, and that’s okay. With that, I’m not saying you don’t see folks from the United States competing in the Masters/Veterans tournaments because you absolutely do. Nick Hull won the U.S. Open in the Masters Division last year. The problem is that they don’t get the same or proper training from top-tier coaches that cadets, juniors, and seniors get, and we can’t blame it on age or body shape because there are plenty of 40-somethings in phenomenal shape with great health, and are in better shape than their younger counterparts, some compete in the UFC. All I’m saying is… Picture this: You have an 18-year-old fresh out of high school. He went to a smaller school in Indiana where he was a semi-state qualifier, ranked in the top eight all year and beat multiple Division I recruits, but because he didn’t make it past the ticket round, he didn’t receive many college offers, and would rather stay close to home for school. The closest school he can afford doesn’t have wrestling, and he feels at a loss when he hasn’t even hit his ceiling yet. With the proper coaching and development, though, he knows he could still be a quality guy. Most write him off and say, “Yeah, right. He didn’t make it to state or do anything nationally, he has no credentials. How does he expect to do anything?” Oh, resources, you say? Well, there’s a training center up the road from him filled with multiple Division I recruits and Fargo All-Americans, but you don’t believe he can wrestle there because he didn’t do what they did in high school? Let him practice with them, let them help him get better over time, and then let’s see what he becomes. Allow him to travel and compete in tournaments so he can really deepen his knowledge of the sport. Due to him being older, he’s less likely to develop bad habits and he’ll have a better understanding of what it is he’s doing, and who knows where he’ll be a year from now. Him being able to practice with top level guys could help mold him into a top level guy and maybe put together a few wins at an open tournament to allow him to be noticed by a quality school. And this applies to club wrestling only. I can understand Division I schools not opening their doors for many obvious reasons, but the most prominent being that they don’t want anyone who isn’t their own to become a liability and also because they’re trying to win a championship in the NCAA, so they need the absolute best they can get at that moment in time. However, with proper training and letting go of the mindset that only those of certain level can participate, if clubs open their doors to anyone willing to listen and learn, I could see a huge increase in participation across the board among all age groups. We get too caught up in letting rankings, placements, and past credentials determine the value of someone when guys like Joe Rau (who only qualified for state once in Illinois and went 0-2) make the world team and our very own Deondre Wilson beat an NCAA Finalist in Dan Vallimont at Senior Nationals back in December and he also took down Jordan Oliver at the Open a few years ago. Imagine what he could do with a quality club or RTC behind him that he doesn’t have to move out of state for. If we don’t break the gatekeeping, elitism, or create more resources and opportunities for our wrestlers statewide and nationally, we’ll kill our sport. I’d like to see more opportunities for women, older wrestlers, and a positive view on Greco-Roman, and regular promotion of them in Indiana. Maybe the ISWA could sanction more local tournaments with a bigger feel (The Indianapolis Open, The Evansville Open, etc.; just some ideas)

I think that we will have a vaccine before spring. With this said.... people on Fox News will have you believe that we are going to have one next month. People on CNN will have you believe that we will have one in 2022. It is what it is. I stand by my prediction of a pre-spring vaccine.

    Wrestling a Spring Sport

    We do have youth tournaments on Saturdays. This happens after the high school season is over. The high school staffs and teams wrestle on Saturdays. They are the ones that run the youth tournaments. That also means that the mats are being used to wrestle high school matches On Saturdays. From my experience less than 5 percent of the wrestling community gives of themselves to hold tournaments. The crazy thing is that most people that are doing the high school stuff are the same people who show up in Sundays to do the youth stuff.

    Rules • Three 3-minute periods: One Greco, one Freestyle, and one Folkstyle period each. • Wrestler who wins pre-match coin flip gets to choose which style starts the match; opponent chooses the period that follows. In the case of championship matches, Champion’s Advantage will be in effect in which no pre-match coin flip will be required and he/she chooses what style starts the match. • Headgear is optional. The Match (SAMPLE) First Period • Wrestler A wins the coin flip and chooses the first period to be conducted under Greco-Roman rules. Wrestler B chooses the following period to be Folkstyle, which means the final period will be conducted under Freestyle rules. In this first period, the push-out rule is in effect, as are four-point moves, and the shot clock. Second Period • In the second period, traditional Folkstyle rules are adopted and the push-out rule is not in effect. However, riding time and the four point near-fall are now in effect. The riding time point, if there is one scored, will be added on to the scoring wrestler’s point total at the end of the match. Third Period • In the third and final period, amended Freestyle rules will be adopted. The only change is that step-outs will not be penalized. Push-outs will only be scored if a wrestler is actually pushed out by his/her opponent on some kind of offensive attack. If the two wrestlers scramble out of bounds, no point will be rewarded. Four point moves will be back in effect and so will the shot clock. Overtime • Should the match go to overtime, a coin flip will happen and the winner will determine the style for the next 90 seconds. If the match still doesn’t have a winner after the 90-second overtime period, a second coin flip will happen and the winning wrestler will get to determine whether they go into par terre or the Folkstyle ride out for 30 seconds. If the top wrestler fails to turn or successfully ride out his opponent, he/she loses the match. If the bottom wrestler fails to defend the turn or escape, he/she loses the match. Match Scoring • Takedown (all styles): 2 Points • Reversal (all styles): 2 Points • Turn/Exposure (GR/Freestyle): 2 Points • Near-Fall (Folkstyle): 2 Points (2-3 second count), 4 Points (4 second count) • Feet to Back (GR/Freestyle): 4 Points • Belly-to-Back Grand Amplitude Throw or “Suplex” (GR/Freestyle): 5 Points • Push-Out (GR/Freestyle): 1 Point

    I was talking about format of workouts now that we are starting to get back into wrestling rooms. An example is what we have implemented in our room now. When kids come to workouts we have them in groups of no larger than 6. No one is allowed to have contact with anyone in a different group and the groups will not change daily. If someone misses practice one day, they will have a group of 5 that day...instead of moving someone from a different group into their workout. Does anyone else have a 'practice format' that they are introducing to their room so they can to limit contact as much as possible? I'd like to learn what others are doing.

    This, and the development and delivery of therapeutics, hopefully oral and inhaled to avoid and reduce hospital visits/stays.

    Best way to get information

    Breakdown and get Twitter. IU and Purdue post a lot on Twitter. As a bonus... you can see Trump rip the fake media! Lol

    Best way to get information

    I do use the wrestlestat site, and that is kind of my point. Why doesn't Purdue on their University site have this info , or IU's site? It surely would be more accurate right? Most reports ,that come out about Indiana basketball, on the main stream sports sites are directly taken from IU press releases. Meaning I had the information first hand before ESPN. I do and a lot of others here look at Indiana and Purdue's universities sites more often than wrestlestat. I just think it would generate more interest if this stuff was included.

    Hoosier pre season open

    Here is the information on this year's event We have a few ideas on the format, but at this time do not want to commit to one due to the COVID-19 situation. Here are the likely probabilities #1 Saturday wrestle everyone for a couple rounds from 5-9pm Sunday wrestle everyone fro 9am- Conclusion #2 Saturday wrestle the smaller weight classes 5-9pm until conclusion Sunday wrestle everyone else 9am-Conclusion *This could possibly include a Sunday morning weigh-in time. #3 Block off 3-4 hour sessions for groups of weight classes throughout the two days.

    4x state placer, 4x collegiate AA?

    Another interesting point, Sawyer Miller of South Adams was a three time State Placer, including a runner-up spot as a senior and a three time NAIA AA at Indiana Tech, including National Championship as a senior. He lost the State Championship in OT by a takedown to Malloy of Danville but won the NAIA in OT with a takedown

    Well we are planning for it to be a go. If we are able to pull it off we will likely be one of the first bigger events to take place. We may stretch the event to two days.

    I wonder how many of todays Indiana HS top talent kids haven't wrestled with or been influenced by Bryan. I would be willing to say 0. Bailey's have certainly left their mark on Indiana wrestling.

    If I recall CoCo made it in due to Madison needing to fill a hole in their lineup for an event. Heck I should be on the list, since I added more wins to the Black family total than CoCo was able to muster. Thanks Derek. 😒

    Bryan Bailey @Brey and his boys have made their marks on the mat. With that said, Bryan is currently providing more opportunities for more kids than any single person that I know of here in Indiana. The Baileys are the best wrestling family going. Just sayin
