    panther87 got a reaction from Perseverance in TEC - Most Underated Conference   
    Having competed and prepared for Shenandoah multiple times the group of gentleman at the beginning of the year are much different from the group they now have due to injuries and other situations. They would be a hard team to battle with when they have a full line up. Having trained at multiple rtc sites in the offseason the wrestlers at Shenandoah are solid with many that will punch their ticket. Although they are not in the conference many of the conference teams are in the same sectional and will have their hands full in preparing for them. They are a great group of kids who hit a rough patch early in the season but they are warriors and will make alot of noise in their individual runs. Keep up the good work Perseverance!

    panther87 reacted to Dmsmelby in Class wrestling poll   
    I don't know why we wanna class individual state, it makes zero sense to me. We already have a great system. Class wrestling is to get exposure to smaller schools, we already have that at team state. They should have it like it use to be where teams wrestled team regionals, semi state, then team state. That's the only inprovement that needs to happen. I don't care what arguement people through at me, nothing trumps the "true champion " arguement.

    panther87 got a reaction from Coach Masters in Class Wrestling - Participation   
    Not that my two cents matter but being a coach at a small school I know my kids love the system the way it is. My kids want to compete against the best, if they are going to be crowned the best. Now we haven't reached the goals at our school we want, but that is not due to a single class system. It is due to the other guy being better. If changing to a multi class system ups numbers because kids joined that wouldn't have otherwise....do we really want kids whose heart wasn't in it unless the path was easier to represent the sport? The beauty of wrestling is that it is "classed" by "weight" and if you lose or win it is due to your work not the system.

    So you would just drop the program if we went to class wrestling? 
    More small schools want class wrestling than big schools. You tend to forget I have been at a small school and at a big school. I have seen both ends of the spectrum and had success at both ends too.
     
    The big schools LOVE beating up on the small ones and getting easy sectional championships. That is why it was so hard to go to class basketball because coaches jobs were secure when they won 20+ straight sectionals against their smaller neighbors.
