  1. That's some good stuff. They were both very fun to watch. I ran into Koontz at our kid's soccer tournament in Fort Wayne a couple years ago and he was in the process of buying a Jimmy John's in Huntington I believe. He does have a high school aged son now but he was only playing soccer when I saw him. Venable was really good and could have won it all but had a bad day at state - it happens.
  2. True. There were tournaments all summer that we traveled to, some states have started high school, college has started, Flo is putting on events, Rokfin has events, Trackwrestling has events, Fite TV has events, I believe UWW is holding tournaments. I haven't heard of 1 issue. So reality is true also.
  3. You are lucky to have a reasonable governor. I am rooting for Indiana to prove the rest of these states wrong so we can get back at it. It appears clear to me that it can be done if they follow reality instead of theoretical models or "science".
  4. Do you think it would have been ok if they had crossed the invisible line to the safe area and rented a space in Indiana to have the tournament instead? Indiana seems to be moving along fine with wrestling. Its crazy how it would kill everyone in some states for high school age kids to wrestle but others have no issue.
  5. What is the purpose of that headgear?
  6. Michigan posted their return to play guidelines. We are limited to 1 competition per week with a max of 4 total teams at an event. Just for your fun, here are some of the mask rules: Face Covering Match FAQs: Q. How do matches start? A. Matches are started with face coverings made of cloth or approved medical grade fabric/material that cover each wrestler’s nose and mouth. Officials are also required to wear a face covering. Q. What if a wrestler’s face covering falls below the nose and mouth while wrestling? A. If a mask comes down while wrestling, it should
  7. It remains to be seen what it looks like. The limitations of 4 teams MAX at events and possibly only 1 event a week would mean a MAX of 21 matches I believe. Then if you consider all the small schools in MI that will get stuck wrestling other small schools with teams with many forfeits, you could easily enter the post season with around 10 matches. Say you don't make it out of districts, and you get 12 matches for the year. Then look across the border at Ohio, IN, and Wisconsin who are all having many more opportunities and you would not be thrilled. Again, I am speculating but don't thin
  8. Michigan is a great state but the governor, health dept, and MHSAA are not so good. I am not sure if this goes for high school also, but here is the middle school memo the MHSAA put out. I have not seen an official high school memo ( which is weird ). https://www.mhsaa.com/portals/0/Documents/WR/mswrcovid.pdf Some highlights are include: 1. Wearing mask during competition 2. Middle school can only compete on Tuesday or Wednesday and only 1 time per week. 5-6 days BETWEEN competitions. I THINK this will be the same for high school but they will be only on Friday or Saturd
  9. I am not against people wearing masks IF THEY WANT TO. I do believe it isn't just all positives from wearing them though and the PPE experts should be listened to. Its hard for me to believe that kids breathing their own air all day long with a mask that has collected garbage all day is good. I just think it should be up to the individual to make their own decision. There are states that do not require them and are somehow surviving. Just suggesting people consider the down side and research what is best for kids.
  10. I have been seeing pictures of a few college teams on social media where they have kids drilling with gaiters around their necks. I would think the sweat from the person wearing it ( and realistically their partner ) would have that wet in no time. Then to think they would pull it up to breathe through it again makes me sort of sick. I will admit that I think relying on masks in a perfect environment is bad idea for healthy people. But wet masks that collect bacteria are going to be a disaster. Even the post where someone said they will wear them during warm up and then techn
  11. Oh, I must have misread - I thought it was at Carroll High School. Is the location still to be determined then?
  12. God bless Indiana for allowing this to happen - especially in a high school. I am glad to see it was possible and am sure it wasn't easy. The Grappler Fall Classic was moved to South Carolina. It was created to give Michigan kids a chance to see the top kids from out of state without traveling but Fort Wayne is a lot closer. With football in MI being moved to the spring, I expect to see a large number of MI kids opting to travel to Fort Wayne instead of SC.
  13. I know its not what you asked, but I think it is interesting that Jimtown has two 4 time AA's at UIndy in Nick Crume and Shane Perkey. The Gimsons were also AA's at Indiana Tech last year. That's a lot of AA's and I would bet there have been others also.
  14. All I am saying is that it seems fair for a state or the NCAA to have to disclose to a program that you are considering cutting the program before doing it behind closed doors so that it cannot possibly be saved. I think your image/logo is for ASU - who cut wrestling but then did fund raise and bring it back. It seems if that is possible that it would be possible to save a program before it is actually cut. I think the motivation to save a program would open pockets that may not give nearly as much. I have heard many stories of NCAA coaches being completely blind sided by the
  15. I wish the state's governing body or the NCAA would at least say that before a sport can be dropped for financial reasons, the team has to be given an opportunity to raise the needed funds before just being given a death penalty. Many times it seems that AD's operate in secret to cut programs that could have been funded if the coaches had been given an opportunity. I could see the same happening in high school. It is complete BS but not sure how it is stopped.
