    It was awesome. All the talk is in good fun...always good to hang out with our friends to the south and glad we could all come together and make it happen!

    Fabio I'm not sure if you saw the emails, but the parents of the poor Team USA kids that had to stay in Avon have complained VERY loudly to Joe. "We thought our kids were going to be staying in Brownsburg! If someone would have told us our kids would have had to go to Avon we would have never allowed them to participate." Between the whole weigh-in controversy and this, I'm surprised we were able to have the event at all.

    2018 Dream Team Classic April 14

    So I’m one of the #PainTrain families lucky enough to host two of the Team USA kids. Side note, what an awesome group of young men on both sides. Was a blessing to spend time with great young people. But my kid I’m hosting just said (In between games of Fortnight) “Man! I knew about Mason and Brayton of course...but your Indiana dudes brought it and that was really impressive. And what an awesome atmosphere and such a fun dual...I’m so happy I came to this!” Our State did just fine tonight.
  5. There’s a whole bunch over in Avon area doing ping-pong, pool, and Fortnight. i also have 110” HD surround sound Awesomeness if kids are jonesing for Fortnight. DM for address. My 2 I’m hosting are with the Avon group currently. Totally serious btw if any of the kids need something to do.

    RTC/RWO 'special guests'

    Excellent point...and I know little about wrestling but I do know coaching, and I have been incredibly impressed by some of these high school kids I've seen teaching technique to a room of 50+ of their peers. That is not an easy thing to do for anyone, let alone someone that is under 20 years old! The future for Indiana is very very bright as I expect these kids teaching the sport now to continue to give back in the future.

    Brownsburg RWO - Thursdays at 6:01PM

    So Ayersman has everyone beating his drum and he's no longer good enough to do the RWO posts on IndianaMat? Both posting and teaching too much? I'm just glad this board is fully anonymous so he'll (or Fabio or Snyder) will never know who posted this smack talk. But opening up the new room is going to be awesome.

    Strategy Question - Hunt vs Slivka

    I think you’re right. Obviously remembered the Hunt / Slivka match bc the stakes were a little higher, but I do have a memory of what you describe.
  11. One thing I've not seen discussed on here, but I thought was a bit of a head-scratcher...I'm assuming because of my relative ignorance of the sport. Going into the 3rd period, Slivka was up 1-0 and Hunt had choice and chose neutral. This question is not a shot on the Yorktown coaches or Hunt, as both the program and wrestler are terrific...but why do that? I would think the thought process would be to choose down to get your own escape and then at worse-case you go to OT? What are some of the possibilities on why you don't choose that? Knowledge that Slivka was that much better on top? Us Brownsburg faithful had taken our shoes off and put all our fingers and toes together to realize that if Hunt won...with BLee and Walton coming up we actually had a chance to pull the win out of thin air. So we had a LOT of interest in that match, especially after Rumph got it done, and were a little perplexed. Again, can't emphasize this enough, this isn't a shot at anyone...much respect to Yorktown and Hunt. Knew if they made that decision there had to be some reasoning...and it may just be that Hunt is more comfortable on his feet and felt he could get a TD. Just trying to learn some strategery.

    Strategy Question - Hunt vs Slivka

    That’s one thing I was thinking...and if so I like it too. It’s the *ing State Championship so best to leave it all out there. I was watching it live and haven’t had a chance to watch the TV broadcast of that match yet, so hard to catch everything. Thanks for responses.

    @Fabio Jr. obviously can answer but I thought I remember BLee saying that Mulkey was his workout partner. Thought I remembered 170 SQ Anthony Ciccarelli did last year but could be wrong on that. Regarding BLee and football, it's mostly unknown that BLee was a phenomenal football player growing up too. And this is not a shot at Lawrenceburg, but it's just a fact that there's a bit different caliber of football player on the schedule at 3A Lawrenceburg and 6A Brownsburg. So that's a bit of an apples-to-apples comparison, as I know BLee really entertained the thought of playing past his freshman year. But we don't have a whole lot of 138-152 lb kids that play consistently for us...as opposed to a 220 lb freakish beast of an athlete playing in 3A that could play at any school in the country and excel due to his size, strength, and speed. There aren't many freakishly athletic kids that love the game that I've ever thought "yeah, with your future, you probably shouldn't play football" but Brayton is one of them.

    Melloh and Mulkey

    If you google “highway robbery” the link should pop right up there at the top.
  16. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    Exactly. This. In all sports many refs self-police / refuse themselves if they’re associated with a school. I didn’t know wrestling didn’t do this until tonight.
  17. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    My knee-jerk reaction is to call #dbag, but we have more class than that. Tonight didn’t go as we wanted, but congrats to all those that won and congrats to the Irish. Still proud of the #paintrain, and will miss watching these seniors do their thing. Feel blessed to have been able to watch BLee and that my kid gets to look up to and follow his example. Kudos to all individual winners.

    Melloh and Mulkey

    If you’re associated with a school...alumni, former coach, live in the district, etc...then no, you shouldn’t officiate those matches. This goes for anyone, including BBurg. Just to avoid this situation.
  19. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    Ok, obviously as I’ve posted before I’m new to the sport, but do try to know the rules...so I would like some clarity. I thought snapping from a front headlock seems like improving to me? Isn’t that taught? I know it is to my 6th grader. And arent rules different in 30 second OTs? Been told a stalemate needs to be given before a stalling call in that situation? I’ll hang up and listen.
  20. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    Is he or is he not a Cathedral alumni and program supporter? Its flat-out wrong, if the above questions about the ref are true, for that guy to be officiating a match with a Cathedral kid wrestling. That’s not just common sense, but is also the ethical thing to do. The main reason? Because in a close match, no matter what, the ref giving “his kid” a mystery point to tie it up is going to have the appearance to many as homering the call...and costing a kid a state title and potentially an entire team a championship. He could be the most ethical guy in the world, but you don’t put yourself in that position, period. so yes, when the organizers and that official put themselves in that position then people are going to question it.

    most impressive TODAY??

    Asa has been lights out and Boarman on one leg deserves a lot of praise.
  22. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    Well this is even better. Not only do the Irish get to openly recruit, they also got an official in the bag. For the record, this is not a shot at Melloh, who wrestled his backside off. But all the advantages for his school get tiresome. And word on the street is that he’s not only a Cathedral supporter, but also an alumni.
  23. Kookie953

    Melloh and Mulkey

    Of note...before hwt the score should be 97 BBurg 93 Irish until the ref decided blow the call. Will be interesting how it will effect the outcome.
  24. Kookie953


    I thought it was the refs doing that (telling Washington to go shake his hand) but maybe just me.
