  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. The belief of 'cold weather' killing the virus must apply when ice is on the floor. With that I believe there are two options in order to have 50% attendance. (1) put the mats on ice instead of hardwood or (2) give everyone in attendance free snow cones all day. I am a problem solver.

  5. 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

  14. I know it maybe hard for you guys to believe: Whitko once had the lower weights on lock. When I was watching the state finals last year at 132 there was a Matt Koontz. I thought he was the son of my wrestling buddie: Matt Koontz 112lb state champion from Whitko in 1989. I was wrong. But it got me uber nostalgic because those guys were cool and fun to watch. I remember Koontz pinned my brother his Junior year and like 20 seconds. He didn’t cheer: he just went about his business. Koontz won state: nobody wanted to scrap with 103lber Venable. My teammate Kevin Miguel who got 6th that y

  15. 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.

  23. Every year all we say to each wrestler "......is just advance each week during the state series". This year that is even going to be even more important. With contact tracing and COVID challenges, this could be the year that possibly there is going to be a lot of "dark horses" winning state or placing high. I believe we will be talking about a lot of these dark horses come State time.

    At 106, Donnie Feeler is underrated. I am sure he's on the short list, but with all due respect to Mike, there is absolutely, no way that he is not a top twenty kid.

  35. I'm thankful we had a dual tonight. I'm thankful we get to have some fans at our conference tournament Saturday. I'm thankful I got to fill out our sectional roster this Saturday and stress out about not being able to have four in a weight class because that means we get to have up to 14 wrestle in sectionals. I made a social media post about how fans could come to our meet the week (the only week) Lake County wasn't in red, but we were turned back to red the day before that home dual, so I had to delete the post. Point being: everything I thought our team would be doi

    IU Wrestle-offs

    Maybe I can shed some light .... First thing is ... “it’s a free year of eligibility” that means EVERYONE on the team is wrestling this year in Duals if your healthy. NCAA is going to take multiple entries per weight from schools to fill the NCAA brackets because some Conferences isn’t wrestling this year . Exhibition matches count this year . “Wrestle offs” really don’t mean anything. Health is going to be key this year because of a shorter season . Stay healthy you wrestle more both in duals and extra matches . It’s going to be a weird short season that we’re all not use to due to the

    Buchanon from the Jimmies(The Fighting Spires) is a threat to win the Fort Wayne Semi-State. He just beat my Darkhorse: The White Panther. He’s done the rounds and is a dangerous opponent. He treated crowd favorite Kreager from Snider( The other White Panther) to a lesson in solidness last year. He is a problem. I wouldn’t be surprised if he medals.

    Cottey going 113 now and you have no one close to Zeke........ but three guys at 138 next to Mendez. IMO Mendez is the most dominant wrestler in any weight class and not a knock to Zeke. Also I think Pack will definitely be challenged. Interesting to see where and who will all settle at come sectionals

  49. 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.
