  1. The good news it might be more interesting next year in Tippecanoe County, and I like seeing some jazz about the sectional. Jeff did make a good run in 2015 and was probably there best team in the 9 year time span and was probably better than the 2007 team. Jeff beat Harrison in dual that year(14-15), but came up a little short in conference, sectionals and regionals. To be honest, I think your McCutcheon Mavericks will contend more with Harrison next year then Jeff. Program is going in the direction and you got some quality back. Have to find a way to compete in every weight class
  2. Now what are we going to watch while were cooped up in our quarantined sites? I only can watch so many episodes of the office. How am I going to get my sports fix? Im going to need psychological help. This is depressing
  3. Kansas is ranked #1. So they get the vote in championship if everything is cancelled. Maybe a subtle motive to quit playing while they're ahead.
  4. Iowa University- National Champions- Since its highly unlikely that were going to have a National Championship now thanks to NCAA freaking out. So I guess we got to go with the polls. Here's a pre-emptive congratulations to the Hawkeyes. Also, I suggest we go with seedings for the Individual All-Americans. Banner year for Purdue with 4 All-Americans. Congrats Purdue. I think the Fred Hoiberg drama last night was the straw that broke the camels back that will cause cancellation of everything in NCAAs. Thanks Basketball, you get to screw wrestling again. Ye
  5. With No fans allowed at the NCAA basketball tournament, its almost a certainty they wont allow fans in Minnesota next week. I hope they don't cancel the whole tournament. Its possible.
  6. Better than no tournament at all. I would also like to get an expert opinion from @regionrat1 about the affect of the wonderful smelling regional air would have on the Coronavirus.
  7. I just start on with my qualifications. Im an expert because I have "Scholar" in my avatar name and I read a lot of stuff on the internet. I also took a biology course in college and played high school football. Maybe the problem is worse because we have 264MM more people in the US. If the death rate is 2-3% which is likely overstated but, keep in mind that's still 200% to 300% more deadly than the flu. And that's a lot more people that can get infected and die in the US. Compound this with this with the fact that we have so many more people who are uninsured and underinsured
  8. Congrats to the Boilermakers 5th place finish. 2 Finalists and 8 national qualifiers is outstanding. This was a hell of a tournament for Purdue. Im predicting, Purdue will end the All-American drought in two weeks. I think 3 or 4 All-Americans at NCAAs. I guess it takes some break through the ceiling, but Ersland did that this weekend. His first 5 years looked like the same old Purdue, near the bottom of the Big 12. I kind of expected the same status quo. But this year they look formidable. They were just behind a down Penn State, but the Boilers were competing
  9. So you're saying a high school in Indiana will have its own gym with really good seating for wrestling fans , and not have to share a basketball court? What you talkin about Willis?
  10. https://www.ncaa.com/news/wrestling/article/2020-02-27/ncaa-reveals-qualifier-allocations-2020-ncaa-di-wrestling With the allocations, what are Purdue's wrestlers chances of making the NCAA. Possibly 7 or even 8 on a good day wrestling. Lydy, Bruner, Schroder, Coleman would get wild cards and are locks. Penola probably would get wildcard too. Fillius, Parriott and Lyon all are going to have to wrestle to get in and cant afford an upset. Should be a fun day.
  11. Hope about giving the small town coaches a chance to win a championship and having there wrestlers a chance to win a championship. That might keep them around..
  12. That's a good point. They wrestle the same Indiana schools and don't join the IHSAA do to some religious beliefs. Since this is not an IHSAA event, why exclude them. I guess on the flip side, they don't state sectional, regional and SS points so makes them difficult to compare. But could you make an exception on the vote in.
  13. Possible compromise to get best of both worlds: The Grand State Compromise method Back in my home state of Kansas, a well known "drink the class wrestling cool aid state", actually once upon a time came up with a method to have a one class champion like Indiana and have individual class champions. It was like having your cake and eating it to. They did it as follows: 1.They had their normal state championship with 4 divisions (6A, 5A, 4A, 321A) and took two weeks to wrestle. They placed 4 places in each division. Each class had its champions and placers, so business like n
  14. 1. There are a handful of cases, where some varsity B/JV kids that could qualify for state. The Blue Chippers like Brownsburg, Cathedral, Warren, EMD are deep and there 2nd string could make state. But rare. I do recall about 5 years ago, Penn had a good kid behind Osborne and other state quality level kids and the kid wrestled Varsity B all year. But next year was wrestling on a college team beating state placers. @UncleJimmy or @M109R know the kid. 2. Back to the original point, if a rule allowed for schools to enter two kids. The big programs would have a lot of vars
  15. Time for Winamac to lobby the "Committee of Power". Maybe throw in some free passes to Fair Oaks and some Fair Oaks Ice free Ice Cream coupons.
  16. Most of these states don't think there's too many. But Ill admit they don't have a board like IndianaMat to keep to give them relative info to base a good opinion on.
  17. This is core DNA thought in Indiana. In all Individual sports, the competitor is equal and has no disadvantage or advantage dependent of what school you go to. You have the same chance to win no matter if you go to Carmel or if you go to Frontier high school. This goes the same for all Individual sports: Tennis, Track, Swimming, Cross Country, Gymnastics, Golf. On the flip, in team sports the thought is the more participants you have that go out for football, the more likely you're team will be equivalently better. This is very much true, and is proven by the data
  18. Wyoming is not called the Equality State for nothing. Everybody gets a chance to place there.
  19. So you're talking about the watered down ratio. Well Kansas isn't the worst with 1 class per 728K population Wyoming has 3 classes per 573K population or 1 class per 191K. That's equivalent to 34 classes in Indiana. Montana has 3 classes per 1Mmm or 1 per 334K or equivalent to 20 classes in Indiana. Oklahoma has 4 per 3.94 Million or 1 per 985K. Nebraska has 4 per 1.91Mmm or 1 per 475k or or equivalent to 14 classes in Indiana. Oregon has 5 classes in about 4 million population. Georgia is class crazy with most at 7 classes. There population
  20. two years in a row, the scholar causes the class wrestling debate to go viral on Indianamat. You're welcome.
  21. That's easy Joe. The big schools would monopolize more and small schools would be squeezed out I bet small school placing would be cut in half.
  22. So they didn't want a thumping again from an Indiana School. Sounds legit to me. I wonder what @Doctorwrestling thinks about that.
  23. Wasn't it Portage that went to a dual tournament at Detroit Central Catholic a few years ago. I think they had a stacked team, I don't remember if they won or not but they competed well. Does have the results? I think the top teams like Cathedral, Brownsburg and Mater Dei would compete well against a lot of the National teams in range of to 11- to 50 and the Indiana teams get a little under rated in the national rankings.
