    IndianaMudflap got a reaction from indianmorg in Who Should Keep The Bus Running?   
    Alright Ladies and Gentleman,
    It's time for the Mudflap's favorite post of the year.  Back in the old Merrillville Semi-State days we used to experience lots of overcrowding issues.  We had dirty Region mill workers sitting right on top of toothless Logansport Regional farmers in their overalls.  It was chaos.  Our old friend HOWDOG offered up the most genius solution to the overcrowding issue.  If the Logansport Regional teams would leave the bus running so they could quickly vacate the premises after their rude welcoming to Region wrestling, we could clear the place out and have more spacious accommodations for the Region Rat crowd to enjoy the rest of the day.  Thus, "Who Should Keep the Bus Running?" was born.  While the accommodations at East Chicago Central are more spacious, the question is still valid.  Who should keep the bus running?  What is the best record that is going home without a ticket?  Will Hall of Famer Tommy Miller punch a ticket and look to improve upon his 2-13 coaching record on Friday night in 32 seasons or will he be a spectator from the Good 'Ole Boys table at Bankers Life?  So many unanswered questions.
     
    I will set the OVER/UNDER for Logansport Regional State Qualifiers at 5.5 and take the UNDER.  3 Raiders, 1 Frontiers-men, and 1 BC Bison punch tickets.  Tacos appear to be on the menu for OnTheRise219.

    Anyone have complete data sets for Sean McGinley, Jim Tonte, or Mike Goebel?  IndianaMat only has incomplete data for these 3, but they have very impressive Friday night marks in the incomplete data available.

    The topic of great coaching comes up all year long, and we certainly have some great coaches here in Indiana.  I thought I'd do a little research to see just how big of an advantage it is to have one of the top coaches in your corner on Friday night.  I used the "Team History" section of IndianaMat, and cross referenced it with the IndianaMat "Coaches" pages for each school.  While some of the data is incomplete, it can give us a pretty good picture of how our top coaches have fared on Friday night, and begin to answer the question of Leroy Vega or Darrick Snyder? Brad Harper or Bob Harmon? Tom Miller or Greg Schaefer? etc.  Also will help us answer how coaches stack up historically.

    Hello Ladies and Gents,
     
    The Mudflap is back!  It's time for one of my favorite posts of the year.  What is the over/under for Logansport Regional State Qualifiers?
     
    Every year we go up North for the Semi-State and are treated to rude Region fans, hard cross-faces, bad neighborhoods, and a very short Saturday.  We were hoping that the shift in venue from Merrillville to East Chicago would improve our luck, but it seems the Region kids have an even larger advantage from breathing in the poor air quality of the steel mills.  It's almost like training at altitude out in Colorado.  That's the only explanation I can give.
     
    I'll set the Over/Under at 5 Logansport Regional SQ.

    I think you can make excuses for each one of those situations or you can look at it from the perspective of "did they meet their individual goals?"
     
    Poynter was wrestling like a medalist with a win over Triana and a runner-up finish at semi-state and he'd beaten Mejia previously and failed to get a medal.  Cornejo was wrestling like a medalist being the only one all year to not be pinned by Hughes and his runner-up finish at semi-state and he failed to get a medal.  Murillo was facing a guy he had beaten earlier in the year on Friday night and failed to get a medal.  Bam was looking like the champ all year, coming off a runner-up finish at state and didn't get the job done.  Torres was coming off a runner-up finish in the state the year before and looking for a title and didn't get it done.
     
    Rumph had a nice win Friday over Molloy in a match he wasn't favored in.  I'd say he overperformed.
    McIntosh had a nice win in the semis over Vaughn to get into the title match.  I'd say he overperformed.
     
    I'd say 2 of 7 left Bankers Life happy.  That's an under-performance in my book and far from "dialed in".
