  1. It’s my understanding that Rumph wasn’t cutting weight all season for 138. Actually, I doubt that he cut much, if any, weight for this Flo Tournament to make 132 (137) with the allowance. Dodging competition...get out of here. Also, I thought Flo followed college, not high school, rules. Wherein the back bow is legal. So, even if Rumph performed a back bow, which is unlikely since it doesn’t appear the pressure is being applied toward the head, it should not have been considered an illegal move in this tournament. While that is a bad call by the official, it’s incredibly disappointing th
  2. Phenomenal wrestlers and even better human beings, completely deserving of all of their accomplishments and accolades. Portage is lucky to have guys like these to anchor their program and to be role models for the younger wrestlers.
  3. There are numerous strong programs like this in the state with in-program club feeder systems. In those situations, it makes complete sense why the coach would expect to have some input or control over the off-season training of their athletes. The generalizations being made in this post of high school coaches as "part-time" and academy coaches as "professionals" are disappointing. Indiana is blessed with many high school coaches who are "good enough to make a living" at coaching and still choose to coach high school and club programs over starting or working for academies. Moreover, many of t
  4. Not a problem. This young man just made us, Portage Wrestling family, proud this weekend. And I want to make sure he gets the recognition he deserves for a great tournament.
  5. Portage has 10 advancing to tomorrow (4 semifinalists and 6 in the consolation bracket). Compared to Detroit Catholic Central's 11 advancing (5 semifinalists and 6 in consolation), Lowell, MI's 10 advancing (3 semifinalists and 7 in consolation), Brecksville's 9 advancing (4 semifinalists and 5 in consolation), and Avon's 10 advancing (1 semifinalist and 9 in consolation). Exciting day and Indiana guys are making their mark. Team Scores after Day 1 1st - DCC 133 2nd - Portage 124.5 3rd - Lowell 113 4th - Brecksville 109.5 5th - Dundee 92.5 T6th - Avon
  6. Congrats to the teams too. Well-deserved honor for Portage and Brownsburg!
  7. Awesome! Glad to see the trials of this year did not hold him back. Fantastic young man and family. Well deserved!
  8. I remember a very well-reasoned, statistics-based analysis of the process that was written on this message board a couple years ago when a very solid Portage team was left out of consideration due to these multiplier/category issues. I don't know all of the specifics, but I believe some changes have been made every year to try to make this a fair process and predictor of dual team success, hopefully to remedy some of the early kinks that were identified with the multipliers. I appreciate what maligned and the selection committee do, but I take most issue with the fact that there is not one mem
  9. This is brought up every year around this time. Wonder when it will happen again. Haven't looked at the brackets closely enough, which bracket this year has the most undefeated wrestlers, how many?
  10. Yes, I believe that was the score at the Merrillville/Portage dual meet early in the season.
  11. You're ridiculous! You know exactly what school he attends and has been attending the entire 2016-2017 school year. You've been involved in multiple other threads about this issue. But, keep trying to create controversy were there is none. As for navy80's legitimate question, Jacob Moran is the sophomore brother from Portage.
  12. Apparently you have chosen to ignore the information that people purporting to be close to the Moran family have previously disclosed on this message board. No one, I repeat, no one has ever said that the Moran's have purchased a home in Portage, yet. The question was repeatedly asked if the brothers moved, which they did, in fact, before the school year started. Regionality, among others, has previously mentioned that the family has had their house on the market for well over 18 months prior to this season. He also indicated that Mr. Moran contacted Faulkens (a number of times, I believe) wel
