    The illustrious Spartan classic..

    I have found an advance copy of the brackets. This one is more legible than most years. You're welcome.

    Cooper Noehre

    I believe it's - Nor-ray, but I could be just saying it wrong.

    Cooper Noehre

    It looks like Cooper has had quite the start to the season. He lost to No. 1- ranked Rodgers in OT, beat No. 2 ranked Fair and No. 3 ranked Schoenegge at 152 pounds, beat No. 2 ranked Graves at 145 pounds then lost to Bryar Hall. He's wrestled some studs in the early goings. As a side note, Bryar Hall is one heck of a wrestler.

    New Castle Semi-State Rankings #2

    I overlooked it then. Not unusual.

    New Castle Semi-State Rankings #2

    I think Hayden Lohrey from Shenandoah might crack the rankings at 160.

    Reasons why IN mat is terrible

    Indiana mat didn't give me a trophy for placing somewhere along the lines of 65th in the State Pick'em contest. I'm on the hate wagon now too.

    Best state tournament

    This year's state meet was great, as always - but, what is your favorite state finals and why? For me, it was probably Chad Red's senior season. The electricity in the air for that Lee/Red match was one of the coolest things I've experienced in the sport. Last year the most fun was the third-place heavyweight match.

    Who impressed you the most

    Absolutely. Not knowing him personally at all, he carried himself extremely well even when faced with that questionable call. I was also really impressed with the attitude of Sam Hansen of Roncalli. He seemed to be having the time of his life, and was very polite. I talked to him for a second after the finals and he was just a very gracious kid.

    Who impressed you the most

    Yeah - of course Lee and Parris were impressive. I had seen them wrestle several times though. I was referring to wrestlers I hadn't seen in action yet.

    Who impressed you the most

    What wrestler at state, that maybe you hadn't seen before, impressed you the most? I have watched most of these guys at some point or another. But, probably the one that stands out for me was Manzona Bryant. He was pretty fun to watch, and I think he'll be a force next season for sure.
  11. New Castle's Dalton Clouse might possibly be the only person to have a lead on Mason Parris this season. Clouse stepped to the mat, and strategically didn't remind Parris that he hadn't taken his t-shirt off yet. Clouse was awarded the point and the lead. Somehow Parris recovered, but man, what a start for the Trojan senior.

    Strategy Question - Hunt vs Slivka

    If I interpreted what I saw correctly, it looked like Yorktown's assistant coach told Hunt that it was his decision. He chose neutral right away. I like the call. He was going for the win, not the field goal for the tie. It didn't pan out - but he put it all on the line.

    Wow - Fattore pinned himself!

    If I remember correctly there was a point in the state championship match years ago between Jason Tsirtsis and Connor Mullins where it looked like Tsirtsis shoulders were flat for much longer than Fattore's - in a defensive pin situation. I am getting old though and my memory may be off. Anyone remember this?

    Melloh and Mulkey

    What a match. That call might be debated for years...could help shape team state title and individual title.

    Sprinting to get seats

    Maybe the Banker's Life ushers should crack down on seat saving. If you see a big blanket taking up multiple seats - tell them to take it down. The people who get there early and wait in line absolutely have a right to their seat - but not seats for 15 of their friends.
