    gsmith58 reacted to JMILL in 2020 Middle school state predictions   
    The past few years several wrestlers have entered again as a repeat 8th grader after wrestling already as an 8th grader and the IHSWCA has not sent them home so I would assume if Preston wants to wrestle there is enough precedent set that he will be able to wrestle.

    What do you mean? It was a perfectly legal (in the wrestling sense) blast double 😉 I couldn't tell if he got back points.

    Actually Mad Dad was QD'd for an undergarment infraction (wasn't wearing any) and also gave up a team point for not having his shoe laces taped... 😉

    I am going out on a limb here, but I will go Lee with a major decision. 
     
    What will be most interesting to me is to see is how Red deals with Lee's offense. No one has come close to stopping him when he takes a shot (which is often) in college or in the Sr Open (with the exception of Jordan Oliver). While he has not wrestled anyone with even remotely the defensive skills of Red yet in folkstyle this year, he certainly did so in freestyle at the Sr. Open. Of course, the caveat is freestyle does not equal folkstyle.
     
    Meanwhile, Red can re-attack or turn your offense into his offense with the best of them.
     
    All of that is another way of saying I am really looking forward to Friday night.

    Let's not forget about how dominant Zeke Seltzer is at 120. He is the part of the reason 126 is so deep.

    Littell is pretty darn good, without injuries he'd be flirting with being a 4-timer also. He has a hit list of who's who in Indiana wrestling

    He placed at Fargo and Super 32 and lost a 1-0 match with Jesse Mendez. Like @IndianaWrestlingGuy said, if he's there you wouldn't have seen the amount of athletes headed to 126.

    If you want to grow the sport, I do believe having more than 1 class would be the way to go.  I really have no good argument against moving towards multi-class in order to grow.
     
    However, for strictly my greedy viewing purposes, I love the one class for individual wrestlers.  (As a team, I have no issues with classed wrestling.)  Knowing who the best individual in the state is something that I do appreciate watching every year.  I understand that most of the champs would come out of the larger class, but rooting for that underdog under the lights is a feeling that is unexplainable.

    You killed your own point with this one.  Using 3 of the best wrestlers of this generation is misleading.  but take David Taylor for example.  Do you not think a freshman or sophomore David Taylor would not have liked a shot at whoever won the Div. I Champ?  And other DII or DIII Champs wouldn't like a chance against the DI Champ? You then mention great Champs at smaller schools.  No one says a DI or DIII Champ isn't great, it's that they are not the ONLY Champ.  Big or small school champ may be better, but that's not always clear.  No one says any don't matter, just that they are joined by others with the same title of State Champion.

    Are any high school basketball games well attended anymore? 
    Attendence at games has plummeted since class basketball has been implemented....and yes, I’m sure it isn’t the only factor.

    Nope. Just have wrestlebacks and our system is perfect. Division individual State Champs are lame. If you want more kids to wrestle act like it is a business and have some charisma and sell it. Class wrestling only adds water.
