    wrestlerswife reacted to SWINfan in NLWC Event Tonight 11/24 - 4 former IN HS wrestlers competing   
    Joe Lee completely obliterates Zach Hartman in :21. A dominating takedown and a quick, hard bow and arrow produces a turn and fall.  I thought that would be a good, tough match for Joe, but he made Hartman, an NCAA Qualifier from Bucknell, look like he didn't belong on the mat.  

    Wow!

    Yes. Yes they did. And that’s with a Boonville transfer to Castle in Logan Sutton plus Purdy who I am not sure but thought wrestled out of Boonville as a youth. But, I’m sure glad they’re both at Castle!

    Bryan Bailey @Brey and his boys have made their marks on the mat. With that said, Bryan is currently providing more opportunities for more kids than any single person that I know of here in Indiana. The Baileys are the best wrestling family going. Just sayin

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be sure to hit that one up. Be sure to hit up the Nacho stand as I’ve mentioned before. A little behind this as I believe. Portion go to what I’m anout to explain: 
    its generally ran by members of Boom Squad. This is a group that was founded by a local attorney and wanted to find a way to not only give back to the community, but to help underprivileged kids. The kids come from broken homes, homes with legal battles and so forth. Mr. Miller bought an old bldg and renovated it, stocked it with Drums and opened the doors to help get kids into a positive environment for a couple hours a day. He’s done this for several years now and my family has also donated our time there(great learning experience and teaching tool for my boys). His fundraisers and donations help fund trips for his “boys” to travel all over the place like to Texas, New York, Ky and so forth. These boys come in and learn how to play music, bond as brothers and sisters and get so good that they get invited to these places. Since his opening of the door, he’s had several kids that turned their lives around and even got College scholarships. Amazing program. Sorry to post this on a wrestling forum but thought it was important to share cause I think it really has a same time of life learning lesson as this great sport does. Best of luck to all this weekend.

    There is a nice appetizer for wrestling fans tonight to prepare you for tomorrow's Regionals.
    On the Big Ten Network (free) Michigan wrestles at Penn State tonight at 7:00 ET. 
    The matchup with feature 3 of Indiana's best studs in recent years:
     - Stevan Micic going at 133 for Michigan.  Micic is ranked #1 in the country coming off his National Runner-Up finish last year. Stevan is 9-0 on the year after nursing an early season injury.
    - Nick Lee will go at 141 for Penn State.  Lee is ranked #7 in the country and will face #5 Kanen Storr.  Lee is 19-1 on the year while Storr is 17-3.  
    - Mason Parris will go at 285 for Michigan.  Parris is ranked #7 and 23-3 and will face Anthony Cassar who is ranked #3 and 16-1.
    Big matchups for both Lee and Parris.  Micic will likely get a Penn State backup after Roman Bravo-Young tweaked his knee last weekend at Purdue.
    Check it out and head over to the College Board for updates on this match and updates on many other former IN HS wrestlers.

    Loved it when Lee climbed up on the rail at Rec Hall and flexed to the audience.  How about when Lee’s dad ran in front of the TV camera and posed?
     
    Exciting!

    All around it was great to watch some high level wrestling and have a great quality stream and commentating. I put it on my big TV and sat on the couch and watched great matches all night. Big thanks to all those that made this happen as I can't wait to do a few more this year as we expand into streaming a little more.

    wrestlerswife reacted to XCard in Weight cut   
    Everyone is inevitably going to make some type of weight cut in this sport, however I do agree with you Jenny that the extreme cut from kids should be stopped. Most of those guys that are cutting that much weight are probably still a top tier kid in either weight class.  So why go thru the misery, and it is misery, of cutting all that weight.  I can tell you from my personal experience, experience with other athletes, and with my own son, that my preference is going to be wrestle up the weight class.  Feel good at practice all 5 days.  Optimize that training time and let the weight come off progressively. Of course as mentioned here too, hit that weight room, because there is nothing that replaces strength at any level.  I also disagree that there is no pressure from coaches and parents for most kids to make the cut and the decision is solely theirs.  Maybe they are not aggressively telling them to make the cut, but not advising them otherwise when we know their decision make that cut, is a poor one, is just as bad.  As Coaches it is just as much our responsibility to correct these bad decisions as it is to correct their wrestling technique.

    Im super proud of our Indiana Boys.
    I watched most matches and followed kids that I didnt know before this tournament, as High School is a new atmosphere for us.
    I saw everyone of these kids wrestle their Butts off, and they gave the competition the full fight.
    I dont think any of them under performed. They left it all on the mat every time, and I was extremely impressed with the heart they all have.
    Indiana is on the map.
    They may not have accomplished their dreams this time, but they are on the right path.
    Everyone of them should be proud of the way they wrestled.
    We should all praise them for the sacrifices and dedication they gave to fight at the Super 32.
    After watching these kids wrestle this weekend, I cannot wait to watch each and everyone of them this season. I am rooting for them all.
    From up North all they way to down south, I am proud to be a Hoosier.
    Hats off to our Hoosier boys.
