    That seems to be the overall consensus. I was hoping my estimates on match time were going to be correct and it seemed like they were. It is a high probability that we continue to run in this fashion.

  9. Coach McClurg, Duane gave me my 1st college loss (8-6) in the quarters of the Indiana Little State held at Taylor University in December of 1980. He placed 3rd and I finished a disappointing 6th. The next year, I beat him in the Little State finals (8-8, 7-1 / OT) at home (Wabash) PICTURED. We never wrestled again, I believe partially because he was also a football player at ICU and had to pull too much weight to make 190 easily early in the season. I stayed down at 190 because ICU also had a giant of a man at HWT named Wade Hall that was an AA prior to Duane in 1985.

    The ones that suffer are the good kids that drop an early match. Those kids have to wrestle about every 15 or 20 mins to hit the podium. That’s tough!!! With that said... it kinda works like that at the ISWA states now too. Gotta get it done early!

    ISU and Notre Dame both should still have D1 wrestling. It’s a shame how both programs were discontinued the way they were. I keep hoping that other BIG name D1 schools will also bring their teams back. LSU, Syracuse, Kentucky, etc...

  17. That makes sense. I feel schools that have thought about terminating programs have the perfect opportunity to do so at this time. While it might be 25% true, it's 75% true that they've been looking for the excuse for a while. All sports outside of football and basketball are ripe for the picking. We will see different looking athletic programs real soon and not in a good way. They will keep feeding the cash cows(football and basketball), while starving or cutting off the rest of the programs instead of what they should do and look at the expenses from the big sports.

  18. no, that's not right. its in the hands of politicians and officials worried about fall out with lawyers. its not in the hands of 18-20 year olds who want to compete and live a normal life devoid of media and political opinions....

  19. Joe, I completely agree, but what you may not know in the Indiana General Assembly 2020, Senate bill 398 was passed which allows for US Title 36 youth serving organizations with patriotic intent, which covers organizations like Girl Scouts, in their ability to still access school meeting spaces. http://iga.in.gov/legislative/2020/bills/senate/398#document-cfbcd145 Maybe we need to link youth wrestling in title 36. Probably need to do a better job of being patriotic in our sport. My vote is we eliminate hand shaking and add saluting before we compete.

  22. ‘71-‘73 maybe? Those years were good for Bloomington, Kay Hutsell had some good wrestlers. Football was great. They also won’t the state baseball in ‘72, and if not mistaken, swimming team took state around that time. Then in ‘74 or so the system built a new school north of town and split the students up. Wrestling sort of started waning then, but football kept up its state presence.

    Been seeing his highlight all over the place. Big fan of the kid and his family. As far recruiting... it’s tricky. Colleges are in a tough spot. If they don’t have a season, the current rosters pick up another year of eligibility. So.. do you give your upper class men another year money or sign some fresh blood. This is the sad truth... if teams don't wrestle, there will be A LOT less money for this year’s recruiting class. And.. it will be even worse if we don’t have a high school season. College coaches will have to make a choice to give money to what they know they have or to a

    I agree with breaking the event up into sections. It was awesome and kept it moving along. Thanks for all the hard work put in to pull this off. We know it was a challenge and it was great to see the kids back out on the mat finally. The only gripe I heard about the venue, and I have to agree, was the humidity which made the mats slick. I saw several struggle with their footing and slipping all over the place in neutral and trying to work up from bottom. Other than that, it was a great layout with plenty of room.

    We don't seed, we separate....difference there. We group like credentials together and the program then bases seeds off of that. 1. State Champ/IHPO Champ 2. State 2-3/IHPO2-4 3. State 4-5 4. State 6-8 5. State qualifier 6. Other If four state champs are in a bracket they will be randomly 1-4 seeds, if the next 3 are #2 criteria they will be 5-7 seeds.

    Gavin Brown "only" beat Watson by one. If Brown is top five nationally, then kudos to Watson! In other IHPO news... Jesse Mendez seeded second. Preston Haines finishes 4th at 109. Good run for him.Evan Dickey with a solid tournament as well. 129- Zeke doing what Zeke does.. WIN. I am really surprised that Zeke ONLY beat freshman Brady Ison 7-3. Ison is good but dang, didn't see that match closer than a tech or pin. Zeke with a 9-1 win over Sam Goin, 8-4 over S. Robinson Jr, and a 5-1 win over Illinois state runner up. 174- Bryer Hall finishes 2nd. Sam Mor

I was told by a big ten coach that without football this season that it took $50 million out of their athletic budget. Big football schools like Michigan, that school in Ohio, and Penn St will be over $100 milliion in lost revenue this year. We. haven't even begun to think about what happens if NCAA Basketball isn't allowed to play this winter. Iowa drops mens and women's swimming, men's gymnastics and me

  36. The first 4 left to right back row I believe are: Bluebaugh (Bloomington), Patascil (Logansport), Kepner (Warren Central), and Palmer (Muncie South) The first 2 in the front row are possibly Leavell (Indianapolis Tech) and Taroli (Hammond). I can’t remember for sure but I think that this IHSAA State Finals was the last year to be held at Southport High School.

Mark Scott was LaPorte High School's 1st modern day State Champ in 1980 at 132 lbs (in the op picture 1st row bottom right) As a sophomore was 6-10-1 and 2 years later finished 28-1-1 as a senior with 20 out of 30 opponents scoring only 2 points or less. He credits his Coach Chuck Ford with his success. 2 key moments for him in winning a state title were his loss in the DAC final which propelled him to working even harder each and every day and the Indianapolis Star Press who previewed the State Tournament in their newspaper.

  40. Coach Wadkins, Duane shared the IHSAA tape recording of the 1980 finals with me recently. Was really fascinated as I watched all the matches, and just how different some of the rules and procedures were back then and how much the sport has evolved. Here is the video of Lutgring’s finals match that went into OT vs Roger Miller of Warren Central. Duane was telling me that you two had some wars on the wrestling mat! https://youtu.be/QneIoSVTKq8 Roncalli's Duane Lutgring (second row & 2nd from the right and standing next to Coach Bless) 185 lbs State Champion 30

  41. Yes. I should have made it clear. I'm simply pointing out the budget constraints that many schools are under. I'm not justifying what any one school does or doesn't do under those constraints. I don't like it anymore than anyone here. And, I would agree that these circumstances can provide cover for decisions that have nothing to do with a virus.
