    Brennen Cernus Transfer

    I agree with you wholeheartedly no student-athlete should ever be demeaned or dehumanized, one would think that is self-evident but among some posters it clearly is not. And I would agree that no coach should be demeaned or dehumanized. However, my question was genuinely one of intrigue what constitutes "bashing?" For example, I see nothing wrong saying that there were different philosophies, that expectations were unmet based on previous conversations, or that they believe they can find more suitable coaching elsewhere. If I were to define "bashing" (I am open to revision and new ideas) it would be unfair critique that doesn't involve wrestling in any capacity and attacks a coach or student personally (i.e. posting on a board that an athlete has "issues with authority)."

    Brennen Cernus Transfer

    Just curious at what point is it considered "bashing?" For example, Goldman (former IU coach) got "bashed" all the time- whatever that term even means. Is it acceptable because he is a college coach? My assumption is it cannot be based on compensation since I suspect a majority of high school coaches are compensated in some capacity- even though that compensation is likely inconsequential since teachers and coaches are widely underappreciated and underpaid. It seems as though we live in a society that is thin skinned and really takes any form of critique as "bashing." Coach TJC seemed to present a reasonable explanation without naming specifics a fair and appropriate response.

    Gable Stevenson

    Innocent until proven guilty. That being said hazing incident- or not- clearly discretion was lacking. Young men need to realize, especially high profile young men, that eventually actions will be uncovered. However, if guilty then I hope justice is appropriately served.

    Jesse Mendez

    He should come to ASU. Especially if he has interests in engineering (partnerships with Boeing, Honeywell, and Intel) and business- specifically supply chain management and finance. Some of the better programs in the nation. Also, the wrestling program is on the rise. I'm not biased or anything...

    Best Wrestling Families

    With the new Flo rankings which has Matt Lee ranked 3rd nationally it made me curious who everyone thought is the best wrestling family in Indiana history? As far as sibling accolades it will be hard to beat the Lee's if I had to guess. But great families can also include a coaching history as well. Some of the great ones are no doubt would be: Tonte's, Tsirtsis, Lee's, Weinzapfels, Humphries, Baker's, Escebedo's, Bradley's, and Welch's.

    Asa Garcia

    The only thing to dislike about Asa is his choosing IU over ASU. Not that I am biased or anything...

    Asa Garcia

    Asa reminds me a lot of Cash Quiroga- never afraid of a challenge seeking out the best competition. 2 state champions on that list of losses and possibly the best to never win a state title in Indiana in Ty Mills. Fantastic career.

    0 points allowed in the state tournament

    Fairly certain for 2 years no one earned a point on Andrew Howe. I think the only individuals who scored on him were the ones he cut. Still, in my opinion, the best Indiana wrestler of all time, for now at least.

    Track Cast Question

    Unless you are married to "your coach" then I wouldn't get comfortable on them or enjoy. 🤣 someone could get fired or end up in jail

    Cathedral vs Detroit Central Catholic

    How does Michigan compare to Indiana as a wrestling state? I know Indiana's top wrestlers can compete with any state but typically depth is different than Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania. However, are Indiana and Michigan in the same category?
  11. I was at the dual meet yesteday a few observations: 1) ASU definitely was capable of pulling off the upset if they were full strength. 2) Micic is on another level. Absolutely dominated with a 17-2 tech fall over the #15 ranked wrestler. 3) Parris is a monster and looks like he has probably gained +20lbs of muscle since high school. I look for him to AA. I think the weight class is Gables to lose but I could see a number of wrestlers placing 2-8, just depending on who is hot.

    Al Smith Predictions?!

    The link I found on the news article is cavemensports.com/mishawakanetwork/ it is on the left hand side of the article right above the teams participating. But sadly the video link seems to be broken at least for me.

    Al Smith Predictions?!

    Will the Al Smith be streaming at all? That would be a bonus Christmas gift! It may have been previously mentioned on another thread, my apologies if I missed it.

    Not eating

    Completely agree but high schools do not have the resources universities possess with exclusive workout facilities, dieticians, multiple athletic trainers that are highly skilled, and etc. From high school to college it really is apples to oranges. However, your premise is spot on, fasting to cut weight for unreasonable amounts of time (2 or 3 days) is not wise and is often a result of lack of discipline or poor diet.

    Graber / Walton

    Jacob Tonte was a phenomenal wrestler as well. I believe 50-0 (or something to that effect) before being unable to wrestle at state his senior year. Would have had to beat one of the Welch twins which he was likely capable of but the Welch twins were studs. It was fun watching the Walton/Graber match. One thing that really, really stood out about Walton was his poise in the first period after giving up the initial take down. He didn't seem phased at all. The 3rd period, especially the last :30 seconds, seemed out of character in comparison to the other 5.5 minutes of the match. Graber wrestled a very good match. You can tell he had a great gas tank.
