  1. Mike, you are the man! Fantastic job once again.
  2. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
  3. 285 - Jacob Obst, Cathedral - football, wrestling, and rugby.
  4. Woohoo! Mason Parris' new drill partner - look out B1G - with Mason and Gable Stevenson coming in, fans won't be leaving before the heavyweight match.
  5. Or like the B1G and NCAA do for their wrestling championships - sell blocks to the schools that want them.
  6. If your naïveté results in inability to appreciate the fine art of heavyweight wrestling, it's your loss. Some folks can discern and appreciate fine French wines and other drink Boone's Farm.
  7. I'd watch a heavyweight match over a 106 ANY day... and when Bankers Life disrespectfully empties out - there is a silver lining, I get a front row seat. It's shameful how heavyweights are treated in our sport. Mainly this is due to sheer naïveté. I could go on and on, but let me just say that heavyweights are the only ones that are discriminated against because of weight (i.e., maximum weight is 285, weigh more than that and you sit - opposed to weigh 50 and you can still wrestle 106 - why is there an upper limit and not a minimum required weight?).
  8. Who did Williams lose to... Koors or Foster ? What was the result?
  9. Will it be referred to as "a shirt designed for officiating wrestling in Indiana"?
  10. I still think of Gable Steveson as an Indiana kid... would absolutely love to see a Paris / Steveson match - might be as good as the Clark / Samuels 3rd place match...
  11. Shouldn't the Mr. Gorilla award be classed? My vote is BB. Monkey off his back = Mr. Gorilla award.
  12. Why is wrestling the only individual sport in Indiana that is not separated by gender? All you pro-class folks should be fighting for this... want to increase numbers - then have a separate class for girls wrestling... we do it in ISWA, we do it in college, we do it for world championships and for the Olympics... We don't have girls playing boys in tennis, we don't have them swimming against each other, we don't even have them golfing against each other; and yet we have them competing in the only individual contact sport against each other...?
  13. Simply having a larger student population doesn't magically make great wrestlers either. Just ask Carmel and Ben Davis (the two largest schools in our state).
  14. Sounds more like a gang... the Culp & Caprino Cartel.
  15. Although he attended high school in NJ, the most dominant BIG MAN in history (with Indiana ties) is Bruce Baumgartner. 2x Olympic and 3x World heavyweight champ.
  16. Big travesty to our Indiana wrestlers... no Beast of the East, no Reno Tournament of Champions, etc. ... missing out on competition and opportunities to get better - it's just not right.
  17. Coach O's positive impact to wrestling in Indiana and Westfield cannot be overstated... all while being one of the most humble men you will ever meet. He is a fantastic father, mentor, and teacher who, no doubt, will always be involved with wrestling in one way or another. Thanks for all you've done and I wish you continued success in all your future endeavors Coach O!
  18. Rugby If you've never seen the New Zealand All Blacks (2015 World Champions) haka - you have are missing out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTwbKryrhks
  19. So I'm reading the IHSAA state finals recap at: http://www.ihsaa.org/dnn/Sports/Boys/Wrestling/StateFinalsRecap/tabid/1880/Default.aspx and come across this (emphasis added): "...Lowell's Colton Cummings (46-0) won the 106 pound title a year ago and moved up to win the 113 belt this season..." Did I miss something?
  20. Blake took care of business and dominated the interview speech too. Congratulations and thank you for all the years of excitement. Look forward to watching you dominate at the next level too.
