  1. Congratulations to Gavinn Alstott from Floyd Central for signing with Wabash. He is projected to wrestle 141. View full signing
  2. It's open for everyone to look at. All the data is there.
  3. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18PWUXrlIjvzl_-I-HaflCB2w-r0a_sTkH-WWOcFKl2g/edit?usp=sharing Check the link again, going to the far right for outliers removed. I removed the top 5 and bottom 5 schools in both classes based on number of state qualifiers.
  4. Blue River Valley didn't field a team at sectional the past two years and only had 4 wrestlers in 2018. I certainly hope the program is not done, however it doesn't look promising. No one here has ever said classing is a magic bullet, even Galgore has stated so a couple times on this thread alone. It will help though. Sometimes you need a sort of artificial shot in the arm to boost the participation. We are coming to a point where we will need to do something soon. As stated in the quoted text, we have lost almost 30 teams in the past 7 years just in forfeits alone.
  5. Over the last 11 years Mater Dei has had 84 state qualifiers(2nd) and 44 placers(3rd). The next highest 1A school is Jimtown with 26 and 17, no other 1A school has more than 8 state placers. They are a heavy statistical outlier.
  6. I showed you three programs that did not participate in sectional this year that were around at least the past couple years. As I stated before not everyone is going to do it at once, but it will happen slowly. No one really cares about Blue River Valley, I'm sure most couldn't even name what semi-state they are in. When a school shuts their program down there isn't going to be a big press release like they do in college. They quietly don't schedule events and everyone forgets it existed. We had 500 less wrestlers at sectional than in 2011, that is roughly 35 FULL teams we have los
  7. Mater Dei by no means should be classified as a small school.
  8. I showed three programs that were shut down within the last two years. We have had up to 312 programs at sectional and are down to 306 this year. Program drops will not happen all in one year, but would happen over the course of 10-15 years. No one really seems to care about Wood Memorial or Blue River Valley not having programs.
  9. There was 1 small school champion, Hayden Filipovich.
  10. 21.70% of the population is at small schools, so that mutiplied by 14 is 3.04, so 3 state champions per year. 18 state champions in 11 years is 1.6 champions per year 1.6 divided by 3 is .545 or 54.5% I even rounded up If everyone were allowed 20(or another big magical number) of entries it would likely not affect the number of champs. It would have a small affect on the top four and even top eight placers. However, the further you go down the line, the more of an impact there would be. It would definitely affect state qualifiers as we can all name 10 back
  11. Actually small schools should be getting 3 champions per year by your connotation that each school enters their whole student body into the state series. That means they are only getting 55% of their state champions that they should each year. When you go to state top 4 placers the disparity is not much better as they are only getting 62% of their intended top 4 placements. How much different would these numbers be if everyone could enter 20 wrestlers in the state tournament?
  12. So let's put $1000 on it... I'll give you 100 random 1A wrestlers and I'll take 100 random 4A wrestlers all entered in the state series. Whoever gets the most state placers wins the money. Wanna take me up on that?
  13. I would hate for people like @ENoblewrestling to fudge numbers as they please, but alas I will show true numbers Data for the past 11 years https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18PWUXrlIjvzl_-I-HaflCB2w-r0a_sTkH-WWOcFKl2g/edit?usp=sharing There is also data for 3 classes and the IHSWCA 4 class system. Strictly speaking on a 1A and 2A level 1A = 22.6% of the population 2A= 77.4% of the population Qualifiers 1A- 20.63% 2A- 79.37% Placers 1A- 16.72% 2A- 83.28% Champions 1A- 14.29% 2A- 85.
  14. If the size of the school matters then we should have classed wrestling, PERIOD! That is the premise for classing high school athletics.
  15. Some people are billionaires, so why can't everyone be a billionaire? Some people are 7' tall, so why can't everyone be 7' tall?
  16. Do you realize that while Carmel 5200 students only 14 can enter sectional? Do you realize Southern Wells with 256 students can enter 14 wrestlers at sectional? School size doesn't matter, everyone is limited to the number of entries at sectional. If entries were unlimited you would likely see much less small school participation at the state finals.
  17. So you are fine with small schools having VERY little success individually?
  18. The one class system assumes that EVERYONE is equal and has an equal shot at thing such as qualifying for state or winning state. If there is not an equal shot at that "success" then we would go to a class system. That is why they classed team sports as they saw that the Southern Wells baseball team did not have an equal shot as the Carroll baseball team at success. The data shows that the entries for small schools are MUCH more likely to not qualify for state, place at state, or win a title.
  19. What percentage of the entries into the state tournament did 1A schools have? Do you not realize that while you are counting 5000 students for Carmel, only 14 can wrestle in the state series? That's the same as Southern Wells or Delphi. Using the total enrollment figures is assuming each school is entering their whole student body into the state series. In a one class system it assumes EVERYONE is equal and has an equal opportunity to win a championship.
  20. Last year I went through the process with a kid and it was brutal. After the hearing they felt they were not going to "win" his eligibility, but for some reason they changed their minds. The thing that gets me is how they pick and choose which kids to "audit" and go after.
  21. Lots of great coaches and giving it to only one is never easy. The coach and wrestler of the year awards are determined by the trust of IndianaMat and we had some good discussions on almost every award. Mr. Gorilla is voted on by the people, coaches, administrators, media(Indiana and BEYOND).
  22. Chesterton as a TEAM had as many placers this year than all 100 schools in the 1A class at team state. Let that sink in here....
