  1. First off we have to be very thankful we are having a season. It doesn't look promising for the states that have moved their seasons and we are extremely lucky here. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the football season. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the wrestling season, but here we are. We all want fans at our events to cheer on the kids. This year has been really weird without fans in the stands. Last night was our first home meet with fans and it felt different and nice to have to people yelling and screaming. With everything else going

  2. I’ll again defer to the progressive stance of the IHSAA for football and continue along that thought process. They allowed 2 tickets per participant. Though they were outside venues, the venues were still smaller than both semi-state and state venues for wrestling minus Lucas Oil and perhaps a 6A stadium. So, my math says 16 wrestlers X 14 weights plus two coaches each is still under 1000 attendees. Throw in referees, table help, trainers, perhaps even concessions, and you have around 1500 per tourney venue. Looks like the two biggest non-coliseums in Indiana are East Chicago and New

  3. The IHSAA has an executive committee meeting Thursday night. And Mr. Faulkens will be our guest on High School Wrestling Weekly Monday night. Tune in to see what he has to say about the upcoming state tournament!

  4. Hey Galagore, one of the problems is that we have so many wrestlers at the same location at the same time in semi-state and State. Ive heard rumors that a solution would be to create an impromptu 3 division class wrestling system for the state tournament to alleviate the density of people in one spot. Do you think thats a good idea? Covid might get us class wrestling.

  8. Love you, Joe, but I stopped reading after the sentence in bold. That is the beginning and end. We are very fortunate to be wrestling in a state series at all.

  9. More rumblings - The South Semi-State will be moved to Jasper. No schools wanted it. No fans at state, coaches and wrestlers only. I knows a guy that knows a guy.....

  10. That’d be so dumb. ECC and New Castle I get because they’re high schools. But the Coliseum has already had fans for wrestling and the Evansville semi state is big enough for something. And New Castle has had wrestling and basketball with a good amount of fans. But at minimum there should be two parents per wrestler allowed, plenty of space for that.

  15. I think a video feed is going to have to be a compromise this year. How logisitically possible is it to have a Track Wrestling video feed on every sectional and regional mat? I suppose a lot, but not all teams will have a video feed of their teams. Just going to have to find it. IMO, letting the parents in might be a good compromise. Most gyms still could accomadate parents and social distance. On a more critical issue, Ive heard that some school districts are not letting athletes travel to and compete in counties that are in red status. So are ADs going to

  16. I believe as stated by Faulkens in one of his last e-mails attendance will very by site. Some sections may have 1-2 per wrestler while others have none, it's really going to depend on the school/ county. Regionals and Semistate will be able to be limited to just particapants. Regionals will only have 112 wrestlers so if the venue is big enough and in the right county I don't see why there won't be some for that. Also Sectionals may also depend on the size of the teams. For example there's a good chance some sectionals may not have a full team or only 1 or 2 while others may be 8-11. Where some

  17. It’s not helping that our state government is doing an absolute crappy job of Distributing the vaccines. We have vaccines, but most of it is just sitting there while the government figures out who gets it next.

  18. A bigger issue may be School Corporations with Red County restrictions. We could have schools not allowed to go to various levels of the state series if the host is in red or if a school from a red county will be attending. This could get tricky...

  19. Has anyone heard this directly from Robert Faulken's mouth? He was pretty clear on his stance on the rumor mill at the officials/coaches meeting in Fort Wayne. Obviously there is a lot that is out of the IHSAA's control in this situation... it really seems like the situation depends on the color coding of the area, and the venues themselves as opposed to the IHSAA.

  20. Went to a college dual in West Virginia last weekend. There were 4 teams. Each wrestler was able to put 4 names on the list. The venue seated 14,000. When we got there we had to go to the ticket booth, tell them the wrestlers name, and get assigned seats. We had to sit in those seats as they spaced us out all over the venue. They also allowed clear plastic bags with food and drink because there was no concessions. It worked very well.

  21. We got word that are conference tournament won’t allow any spectators but will be broadcasted. Our conference is only 9 small schools. I expect the same to happen at sectionals and possibly regionals. Maybe semi state will allow for 1-2 family members?

    120 - Ross (MD) 132- Dalton (Monrovia) 138 - Roberts (Avon) 145 - Mckivitz (PM) 152 - Conley (Avon) 160 - Fuqa (Franklin) These would be my dark horse picks this year considering multiple previous wins over top 5 opponents within the last 3 years. These are guys that are always in the mix producing solid victories and results.

  27. Maybe if they classed vaccinations....I kid, of course. However, we could be doing the best, some would say the bestest, distribution of vaccine and I doubt a state series that begins in 3 weeks would be minimally impacted considering we are on, what, people in the 80's to get in line? Unless your insinuating that wrestlers and families should be ranked higher (see what I did there) in importance. Anyway, not a politician, nor a desire to start a class the vaccine 10 page thread but not seeing how vaccine distribution issues play a part in an event that begins 3 weeks from now.
