was Reading a post earlier about the Indiana state series and that their should be wrestle backs. Seen another post about Indiana mat ranking, setting a PR for most ranked kids going to state using their ranking system.
So I decided to combine both of these topics together with a article posted By Y2CJ41 called “
Toe to Joe with IHSAA Assistant Commissioner Bobby Cox”
In the article the question about wrestle backs appears. Wrestlebacks: Why do you think the coaches have been pushing so hard for them and what is preventing them from being passed? coaches feel that in some situations, a wrestler could get caught in a move during a bout and lose when in their mind the losing wrestler was really the best wrestler and should have the opportunity to "wrestle back" to a better position. The IHSAA individual tournament series is about determining a state champion in 14 weight classes. Adding wrestlebacks is nothing more than adding matches to an already long program to determine something that is already being determined. When the individual tournament concludes at Conseco on Saturday night, I believe we have accomplished our goal in identifying the best wrestler in 14 weight classes.
SO MY QUESTION IS HAS A #1 Ever not make it to state due to a loss in the opening round or ticket round at semi state?
