  1. I read today that he was arrested for sexual assault. He denies it. Says he is suspended from all team activities while the investigation is ongoing.
  2. It always interests me to see how the semistates stack up to one another. This might have already been covered, but I didn't see it. Here's my breakdown. Each 1st place finisher gets 8 points, 2nd gets 7 and on down to 8th place (8th place earning a point). Evansville claims this year's top honor. They had a whopping seven champions, four 2nds, four 3rds, five 5ths, four 6ths, two 7ths and four 8ths for a total of 173 points. New Castle comes in second with three champions, five 2nds, six 3rds, four 4ths, two 5ths, three 6ths, five 7ths and three 8ths. They had a total of 145 points. East Chicago is third with 114 total points. They had four champs, four 2nds, two 3rds, two 4ths, four 5ths, four 6ths, one 7th and two 8ths. New Haven (Ft. Wayne) finished with 72 points. No champions, one 2nd, two 3rds, three 4ths, 5ths and 6ths, six 7ths and five 8ths.
  3. I don't know - I really liked the Watts / Cartwright match.
  4. I know. Warren was last season. I would have bet money that Lee did it as well, as dominant as he was in the tourney.
  5. I looked it up. Lee had a close match with Kasper McIntosh his junior year, then beat Aiden Warren 16-8 and beat an out of state guy by one his senior year.
  6. Silas Allred, I believe, has pinned or tech falled everyone he has wrestled this season. Has anyone else went the whole year doing that? I don't know of anyone, but I'm no expert.
  7. Mendez - holy smokes that kid is good.
  8. Hagerstown's Jake Combs just started wrestling last November and advanced to state at 182. I remember several years back a New Castle guy named Michael McAllister started wrestling as a junior and knocked off a state ranked guy around his 8th or 9th match, and was undefeated until he hurt his back. This got me wondering, who is the best natural wrestler you have watched? One of the guys that really had no wrestling knowledge, but could go out and beat anyone on sheer strength and athleticism.
  9. This stressed me out too much. I'm horrible with a budget.
  10. So LaPlace falls to Bates by one point in the ticket round. Bates goes on to win the semistate - and when the 4th place finisher couldn't go on, the replacement is the person to lose to the semistate champion. Is this how the situation took place?
  11. Madison looks nice. I like that you have a place for spikeball.
  12. Worst thing I've had happen is about five years ago my sons were sitting up high in the nosebleed section with their middle school wrestling friends. One of my sons was on the end of the row and got up to go to the bathroom. A guy sat in his seat despite my sons' friends telling him their friend was sitting there and just left for the bathroom. When my son got back he asked the guy if he could have his seat back, and the guy just told him seats aren't assigned and to move. My sons moved down a few rows and a few of his teammates went with him. I went up and asked the guy why he had to have that one seat in that whole arena and why he was trying to bully middle school kids just looking to watch wrestling. He babbled on about how kids need to learn you can't save seats or something. I kindly told him he was a really good person and to have a lovely day...in words very similar.
