  1. Wonderful story, great article. Kudos to coach Hoover, and all involved Thanks for posting Y2
  2. Weather permitting, it should be an interesting matchup. I'm excited to see if Lee can show some seperation or if Red can bring back his form and pull the upset. It's getting hyped on flo and intermat. https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/6317221-live-this-week-jan-17-20-2019
  3. Some good press for Parris. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/21183
  4. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/03/18/world/europe/russia-dagestan-wrestling.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fworld&action=click&contentCollection=world&region=rank&module=package&version=highlights&contentPlacement=2&pgtype=sectionfront&referer=https://www.nytimes.com/section/world Youth participation in wrestling thwarts extremism, not a bad attribute for any sport.
  5. Lol. Your point was still valid, IN wrestling is on the uptick.
  6. We are actually 6th. Although CA and MI would drop, both OK and IA would move up on a per capita basis. Still pretty impressive.
  7. I agree. Micic is wrestling at such a high level. His top game has grown by leaps and bounds and his neutral looks better (and he was pretty darn good on his feet already). I think he handles Pletcher and believe he can pull one out with Gross.
  8. Secondarily, do you believe this helps or hurts the argument that class wrestling would significantly improve forfeits?
  9. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/19842 What do you think of contracting weights for dual purposes? It seemed like quite a few folks on the board were in favor of this. How do you see it impacting participation?
  10. With Sinkovics and H. Lee claiming NAIA titles, i contemplated which IN kids are the hopefuls in 3 NCAA divisions. Here of my thoughts, but I'd like to hear your opinions. D1 133 Micic (solid) There is a Jackrabbit that will have a lot to say about that, but Micic has been wrestling great and he'll come in on the opposite side of the bracket. 141 N. Lee (outside) Getting AA at that weight will be quite an accomplishment for a true frosh. PSU has a knack for getting kids to peak at NCAAs and we all know Lee is putting the work in, so who knows maybe he pulls a Cinzo. D2 125 Glogouski 141 Nick Crume (solid) Crume has been right there his first 3 years. Going 5th, 2nd, and 5th. I think he caps off an amazing career at UIndy with a Title! 157 Kemper D3 133 Owen Doster AA last year and has improved. He certainly has a reasonable shot at it. 157 Kyle Hatch Has been really good this year and is ranked top 5 coming in. 149 Austin Bethel Never know when he might pin a wrestler or two he wasn't supposed to. He has been improving at the right time. 174 Darden Schurg Probably the most solid (along with Doster) of the of group in respect to his title chances. He has been wrestling great and ranked #2 for most of the year. How off base, or overly optimistic am I? Who did i leave off that has a shot at a title this year?
  11. Sinkovics and Lee get small write ups. https://intermatwrestle.com/articles/19831
  12. A lot of people will be rooting for Carr.
  13. http://intermatwrestle.com/articles/19815 Sinkovics becomes a 4 time all american. One of 68 in NAIA history
  14. 125 Lee (3) 133 Micic (4) 141 Lee (1) 149 Retherford (10) 157 Kimmerer (7) 165 Joseph (2) 174 Hall (8) 184 Nickal (9) 197 Moore (6) Hwt Snyder (5) PSU 130 pts
  15. I think you are right. It sounds like an attempt to squeeze a settlement out of the school corp. I still feel bad for the kid, because clearly he isnt driving the bus on this.
  16. It certainly isn't an easy position to be in as a coach, parent, admin, and especially the athlete. I wouldnt want to be that coach, but if i were i would try to do my best not to single the kid out. That said i wonder what kind of legal exposure might that create from parents of the other kids on the team?
  17. Talk on the Yappi board suggests that the coach may have been told by others after the season started. The coach then presented to Admins. Again this is just message board chatter so take it for what it's worth, but it sounds like the coach is pretty well respected. Timing is a bit suspect as the team is preparing to host districts this weekend, so there may have been planning for maximum effect.
  18. I've been to multiple tournaments during Hughes time in HS where he didnt give up a single takedown. He was facing MI state champs and IL and OH placers, so he was at a high level on his feet in HS. Albeit not as good on the feet as Maurer as Y2 and others have pointed out. That said the separation isnt as great on the feet as the top game strongly favors Hughes. As a true freshman in the MSU room to perform as well as he did on top against the best conference in the country showed how truly elite his top game was. Maurer didnt have the neutral skills to make him standout immediately at the next level, like a Desanto, so i think that gives Hughes a greater degree of skill separation. Does that translate into a victory for Hughes? Maybe
  19. http://m.fox19.com/story/37607075/transgender-teen-outed-by-wrestling-coach-mom-says It doesn't sound like the coach really outed him as his transition has occurred in the last 3 years. I doubt kids will forget that soon. That said it still doesn't sound like the situation was handled well. Thoughts?
  20. Robinson was outstanding and has the athleticism edge, but i could see 11th grade Parris pulling that one out. I would see a Parris vs. Parris final.
  21. You are describing the same level, BSU has beaten IU in football so many times IU wont schedule them now. IU isnt even on par with the upper tier MAC teams. Just like their wrestling program.
  22. https://www.ncaa.com/news/wrestling/article/2018-02-17/college-wrestling-army-stuns-navy-claim-star-annapolis Huge win for Harvey wins Army the dual against Navy.
  23. The front headlock should have been stalemated after 8-10 seconds max when neither wrestler was improving position. That would have left 10-14 seconds for the match to still be decided by the wrestlers. Unfortunately the official didn't call the stalemate and then compounded his mistake by making a more egregious one. Every year this guy makes numerous head scratching calls.
