  1. I give credit where credit is due....mad props to Ryan Parrish for getting this pulled off and everyone who helped him. These are the type of positive announcements we need. I have been a critic of the ISWA, but they definitely pulled this off and worked countless hours to make this happen. Now everyone just bring lots of hand sanitizer and fist bumps.
  2. Gotta love those peeps with mult accounts on a website lol. Anyways. I was looking at how the wrestling community handled the last global pandemic, you know the one in 2009 for H1N1.? I can’t find any findings. Maybe you can enlighten us on how it was handled back then. And I’m in a plane for the 10th time in 12 weeks as we speak. Maybe I should just play the lottery when I get back home. Anyways, you have been enough entertainment during my flight. Enjoy the rest of your day.
  3. Considering 264M people more live in the USA, you are comparing apples to oranges. Also considering Italy’s population is 12% older than the USA, and the Covid-19 affects the elderly, again, can’t compare the two. The media is driving this circus. And it’s unfortunate. If we want to compare, we need to adjust for different cohorts and look at it retrospectively. And adjust for the variation. More importantly, let’s ban all Walmart’s. Considering the avg Walmart sees 4K customers a week and many many more over 10k, you are way more likely to encounter COVID-19 at Walmart tha
  4. This is what happens when an organization does not have a backup contingency plan. It was foreseeable 2 weeks ago that this could be a possibility. Or even if we learned from last year at Carmel for MS state with their gym, there should ALWAYS be a contingency plan in place prior to the actual event occurring. Now pushing it back will affect numerous national duals, as well as the heart of spring break for many.
  5. You mean we may have to actually hold our state tournament in an actual arena venue and not in school cafeterias??? Maybe some good will come from all of this non-sense! Eville Ford Center, FW Coliseum, state fairgrounds? All venues would be an upgrade. And don’t tell me they are not big enough. Make it something special for state. Hell Fri-Sun. All finals and placement matches on the final day.
  6. Unfortunately the media is responsible for the panic. Businesses and retirement accounts and people’s lives are being disrupted by this panic. As someone who is in the health care industry, we as a society and our media should have this same passion for encouraging those same people who are at risk of COVID-19 to go and get their flu shots every year. It’s those with compromised immune systems, the elderly and those with COPD that are most at risk. The main issue with an outbreak is the transmission from healthy individuals to those who are compromised. Instead of keeping a wrestler from
  7. New Updated Rokfin Top 200 National Middle School Rankings are out by MatScoutWillie (former Flo ranker). Indiana continues to have 4 wrestlers represented: 8th graders Brady Ison (130 lbs) & Drew Mills (150 lbs) and 6th graders Parker Reynolds (95 lbs) & Revin Dickman (77 lbs). https://rokfin.com/MS1 Next round of updated rankings will come after the Tulsa Natl duals, Reno Worlds & USAW folkstyle Natls. Way to represent the state young men.
  8. Your right, without a qualifier like PA,OH,IL, everyone has a possible chance here in IN. So anything can happen. However, past success is the best predictor for future success. Some of these predicted champs have won 4,5,6 straight ISWA state championships. I believe some upsets will happen, but cream always rises, and those who have been tested in Tulsa, Super 32, VAC Gold brackets, USAW,....Indiana’s MS State is not a stage most of these talented wrestlers will be lacking in experience. I can personally attest this may be one of the most accomplished 6th grade classes IN has seen. I b
  9. I’m fairly confident those that have a legit chance to win have registered. With maybe the exception of D’Pone Veazy at 160. There may be a few wrestlers who are potential placers who have not registered, but any potential champs are registered. With maybe the exception of HW. Those who have wrestled the true national circuit: Tulsa, Super 32, Tyrant, McDonough, USAW, they are all registered. Maybe a few regional type kids are still unsigned, but not the big ones.
  10. Here are the favorites I would think based upon who is signed up as of right now. Remember wrestlers can now switch weight classes (bad idea in my opinion). Disclaimer....This is not necessarily who I think will win (well 99% agree), but who the favorites would be going into it based upon registration. 75 Dickman (Brownsburg) 6th 80 Jendreas (Crownpoint) 7th 85 Hockaday (Tri West) 7th 90 Schaefer (returning champ) (Mater Dei) 7th 95 Reynolds (if healthy & can wrestler) (Brownsburg) 6th 102 Graham (Cathedral) 8th 110 Harden (Cathedral) 6
  11. Doesn’t make sense for them to block the entry list if they are allowing wrestlers to change weight classes. Personally, they should do it like Tulsa. Block the entry list, make weight at what you register at. If you don’t make it go home. But if you are going to allow weight class changes at weigh-ins, then just unblock the list.
  12. Yes I meant L Hawkins at 85, and forgot about Acuna.
  13. Kyle Harden will most likely be at 110 (what he went for Tulsa) Preston Haines cannot wrestle this year as he has already participated as an 8th grader last year. Parker Reynolds may not be medically cleared to wrestle by then as he suffered a dislocated knee cap out in Tulsa. I do agree with a lot of your predictions other wise. Here are some top matches possibly at a few weights 80: L Haines returning champ v G Jendreas 85: E Doster, J Hockaday, L Haines 90: P Reynolds?, S Syra, J Hockaday ?, H DeMarco 95: P Reynolds?, E Stanley, I Schaefer 102
  14. MS Tulsa Results are posted on the Top MS Rankings 2019/2020
  15. Here are the 12u/15u results for those IN who attended Tulsa Nationals this past weekend. The toughest tournament in the country. Revin Dickman 1st 12u 73 Kyle Harden True 2nd 12u 110 Hunter Henry 4th 15u 135 (made semi finals) Gunner Henry 5th 15u 157 (made semi finals) Jairo Acuna 6th 12u 88 Parker Reynolds 6th Medical Default Semi Finals 12u 92 (made semi finals) Following MS wrestlers wrestled and DNP 12U Miguel Rojas 145 Carson Volz 130 Evan Stanley 96 Isaiah Schaefer 96 Griffin Van Tichelt 92 Camden Baum
