    RIP Jim Beeson

    Jim preached that you officiate every match the same regardless if it was a state championship match or a CYO 2nd grade match. One state finals he came off the mat after doing a really exciting championship match and turned to me and said "See just like a CYO match". Jim never missed an opportunity to teach an official something to help them get better. Randal you hit the nail on the head that his imprint will live on through other officials. Rest In Peace, Jim.

    Coach Peck

    For those that don't know... Rex coached his 1000 dual meet on 12/18/10 making him somewhere in the neiborhood of 800-205 an almost 80% winning percentage. That is amazing. Coach Peck, good luck the rest of the year and on your way to 1000 career wins.

    California Wrestler being Sued- NYTimes

    "threw the youngr boy down, pinned him to the mat and preformed an invasive "butt drag" maneuver" If this statement is accurate then I understand the law suit. A butt drag no matter how you use it is not a pinning combo and in the above quote would be used for retaliation or hazing or whatever you want to call it.

    Double DQ

    I can name several HWT state champs over the years with great tech but none come close to Andy. The first state I ever went to was his junior year and it took all of about 30 sec of watching him wrestle to see a great wrestler. I've never understood why more HWTs don't take his approach of mastering technique.

    The match you wish you could get back?

    Here is one for you Nick.... 94-95 I lost to V. Cannon in overtime at the Thanksgiving weekend duals at LC. I was penalized for stalling in OT. Vernon went on to finish 2nd at state. I still mess with the ref that hit me for stalling!!! I lost in the ticket round at semi state that year but the V. Cannon match is the one i want back the most.

    Ball State Wrestling

    BSU had a club team back in 95-96. We practiced in the old gym in the quad. I can't even remember the coaches name but it was just a few wrestlers and I think the team went to just a few open tournaments. It would take several very dedicated people to sucessfully get a club sport going. A great coach, substaintial funding and several talented wrestlers that want to compete at a high level as a clubteam. I hope it gets going.

    The Best Wrestler in the History of YOUR school

    Thanks jlittlejohn. I couldnt think of his name. sb25, Obrien finished 3rd I think. I would still vote Brimmage. He wrestled against a great 171 lb class his junior and senior year. Gill Journey (2nd, 2nd, 3rd), Will Hill (state champ 95), Dan Pleak (state champ 94), James Brimm (4th, 3rd, 189 state champ 95), Robert Miller (state champ 93). I know Brimmage beat Hill, Brimm and Miller during those years. Im pretty sure he beat Pleak and maybe Journey.

    The Best Wrestler in the History of YOUR school

    Pike High School DeMarcus Spencer 3x state qualifier and State Runner Up Deon Brimmage finished 3rd in 93 and 4th in 94 (my vote for best overall) Donnie Hale finished State Runner Up in 96 Pete Peterson finished State Runner UP in 97 There was a state champ in the 80s but I cant think of his name. TAE can you help out?

    Cauliflower ear

    I have a very small amount of cali ear on one ear and I love it. No one would even notice it unless they touch it. It is a permanent reminder of my wrestling career. I did wear headgear so it is probably why mine is so small. But to have really bad cali ear is another story.
  13. While I like your idea it would cost $10,000+ in officials fees alone per class for the team sectional 32 sectionals x 4 officials x $50 x mileage = $9600 to $12,800. And thats per class and only 1 sport. And that is if there is a 1 day team sectional. If there was a 2 day team sectional you would basically have to double the cost. So if IHSAA classed all ind sports I would imagine a simliar cost would occur in those sports as well.
