  1. Hopefully the IHSAA does the right thing and moves the Mishawaka sectional then. I'm over over-reaching health departments on power grabs. My county just went orange, but the Health dept says we have to stay at red level for 2 additional weeks, it's ludicrous. It's just a bunch of old bitties that have been reduced to finding bugs and warm food their whole lives that now feel like they have a since of purpose. Take a hike Dorothy. Let counties, communities, and schools that support this type of nazism get hit where it counts - in their financial pants and once the pand

  3. Not close to over at all with the slow and erratic vaccine distribution and side effect reactions. You may be in a hurry and wanting to follow misguided politicians in reassuring us everything is going to be great in short order, but that is sure as hell not what is taking place.

  4. The Evansville Central Sectional—long considered as one of the toughest in the State—seems to be a bit down in 2021. That being said, do not forget it is populated by the 4A team champions, Mater Dei, and soon-to-be-perennial powerhouse, North Posey. Following one of the weirdest years in Grandmother’s history, wrestling follows suit. Consider that North Posey declined to complete for a PAC championship, while Mater Dei won the SIAC title—with 13 JV wrestlers. At any rate, the Central sectional still promises much excitement, fireworks…and some upsets. Mater Dei has

  5. There is no way that we can’t social distance 224 wrestlers, about 200 coaches, 100 workers and refs and 1,000 fans at bankers life. Mask up, respect each other’s space, and make it work. How is anybody questioning if this can happen? We all know that we have wrestling going on in smaller venues with a smaller space to people ratio. Why is it ok to have a middle school 8 way dual in a single middle school gym with two fans per wrestler and not state in a massive venue with tons of space? There is no conformity. This is many peoples frustration. I can

  7. Next year's Team State will tentatively be held on January 8, 2022. (January 1 is a Saturday.) Several changes will be mentioned in the Team State selection procedures document that will be out later this week. These are primarily being put in place to offset some of the impact that covid will have on teams' qualifying scores: 1. In 3A and 4A, exactly 6 of the 8 bids will be via automatic qualification, rather than 6 or 7. (Best 3 semi-state highest scores, 2 highest remaining scores as wildcards, then either the 4th semi-state "winner" if they are in the top 10 overall

    I think it's time for Jeb Prechtel of Jasper to enter the rankings. Prechtel has wrestled with Maurer Coughlin for several years and is a solid wrestler. Will he become a state qualifier this year as a Soph, I'm not sure. But after today's win by fall over Aiden Farmer, I think he's on the cusp and dangerous.

  10. Let’s quit the faux-fear here. By the time everyone gets to Bankers Life, no one will know who has it, who has been vaccinated, who doesn’t give a sheet, and who can plow through a possible symptom to win a title. If you are 60 or older, don’t come if you are a fan, coach, or ref. Or, if you do, get a vaccine in the next 4.5 weeks. Otherwise, get the kids in the arena w parents or immediate family, and have a tournament. Football had 75 kids in the locker rooms together 6 different times (or a few less for 1A-3A). They spaced the loved ones perfectly with assigned seats, but no way t

  11. In an email read yesterday, the IHSAA stated that as of now all 224 wrestlers will not be allowed in Bankers Life at the same time. This makes absolutely no sense to me and would love to hear the justification. Look at these numbers... Bankers Life holds 20,000 people at full capacity. If they were told that they could only use 25%... that would be 5,000. 224 Wrestlers 896 in fans (4 tickets per wrestler on Friday, even less needed for Saturday) 448 in Coaching tickets (2 coaches per kid. Obviously this number is higher than it needs to be due to the fact

    Regarding the RTC..I know last year was different with Covid. Normally Garrett and Carroll run Open rooms on opposite days. We've had most NE Indiana schools represented in each room. I'd say this has been a good thing for the area the last couple years. I plan to keep doing that at Garrett one way or another this year.

    Imagine if..

    The MAC is an awesome conference. We all know that my son chose that route. He’s left my house a week after graduation and hasn’t looked back. He has not asked me for a dime. He’s proud that’s he earned his own way (between wrestling and academic money). He’s got a shot at being a five year D1 starter and is on the deans list. He’s there with 3 other kids that he grew up with too. He has been fortunate and it appears that he chose a great fit for him. But.. there is no right or wrong answer. It all comes down to what works for the kid. No two situations will ever be the same.

    When Asa was going through the recruiting process. Every college coach we talked to did not give two cents what he done in HS wrestling in Indiana (State) . All they ask how is Grades, What you wanna do while in College ? What the school offers in that field ? More Grades questions. National stuff was congrats on your placement. Not one question asking about Fargo, if your going or not . They know what the athletes do in HS . Seems to me colleges focus on a needed weight they need to fill. If your beating high school kids on National level there good shot your beating them on College level

  17. As long as their is a state finals we all are good. If they decide to limit spectators, multiple sessions or whatever they decide to do is okay in my opinion as long as the kids can have their state tournament. As a fan of the sport I am willing to give up my attendance and just pay for it on track or whatever stream they decide to go with. At the end of they day this is about the kids not us parents, friends, and coaches. The ihsaa has done an awesome job this season and I trust them not to let us down.

    From the IHSAA Winter Bulletin Coaches should strive to keep open minds when seeding assignments are being decided. The main objective of seeding is to have outstanding wrestlers separated in the brackets so that they will not meet each other until the finals. Seeding shall be based upon the wrestler's proven ability and not upon the desire for unwarranted advantage.

  20. Leo's elementary team has been getting better the past few years. I know Covid has killed the number of schools and teams at tourney's but their kids won elementary state this year and place high in most area tourneys. Several years ago that club room for the elementary kids was bare. It's a brawl now. I have some family that's been in that wrestling room for their club. Woods and Cameron Harris have pumped more life in that program than pretty much anyone in the northeast corner of the state has to their kids room. That's what schools need to look at. Building from their youth.

    No, we are all in this together: the whole semi-state. Fort Wayne is going to be ok. It takes time to build something up and I know several guys that are sacrificing a whole lot to try and get these kids where they can compete for titles. These efforts will come to fruition. If I have to lose a limb or go into paralysis: it will happen.

    IHSAA Rule 50-4

    This would not be the first time that the IHSAA has changed the interpretation/application of a rule. If this rule has always been in place then I know of numerous times when it has been violated...most of you do to. How many times has someone in wrestling applied for a waiver?

  27. Sectional and Regional schools that are allowing no fans or putting severe restrictions on fans should not be allowed to host. 2 spectators per wrestler is reasonable and should be a requirement by the IHSAA to host a sectional or regional.

  34. I’ve been hearing that same old line for a minute. Rome wasn’t built in a day: but with careful planning a dynasty can be built piece by piece. Veazy is not the only one . I’m glad the other guys are under the radar. This is what I can tell you. I’m coming out of my self imposed hiatus. Noise will be made. Bells shall ring. Names you’ve heard before : just younger and prepped. The next 6 years is going to be fun. If I’m wrong: remind me later.

  44. Michigan just got delayed again - first possible contact practice would be 2/21. Not sure there will be a season after the governor's talk this morning. If it does proceed, it will be the 6th version of the schedule and most likely will run through spring break which will mess up a lot of plans. Anyway, from the outside looking in, you guys are really lucky. Best of luck to everyone and enjoy it as much as possible even though it makes no sense and should be better for the kids and parents.

    This. And it is obvious as the top programs in the big ten stay on top because of this. They pray on our state elite only. Thus the guys we do get have to be coached up way more than the guys Michigan, Iowa, Ohio st. Or penn st. Get. catch 22 scenario for Indiana and Purdue. To break the cycle a prospect has to take a leap of faith in a coach who has never had a chance to coach up an elite. Not too many, if any, top prospects are turning down the top5-10 programs in the country to wrestle for the up and comers.

    Had a long talk with a couple pretty good wrestling minds...and college coaches...you can't take a kid who is a 5 and get him close to a 10 in 5 years. They need to come in at a 7... also, most of the kids who are AA level have credentials that include Fargo or ELITE level national wins...Fargo matters!!! (international)
