  1. Seems like with the addition of Coach Smiley and their returning talent/incoming freshmen, they are solid across the board. Who will contend with the Bulldogs? PS. For those of you that don’t know Coach Smiley, he had one of the most stacked weight classes in the history of IHSAA weight classes circa ~2000. Eric Keith, Josh Baxter, and one other guy were all 40+ and 0 heading into the IHSAA Semifinals. Smiley got ‘em all. Future is bright for the Bulldogs.
  2. Yes, Culver is different. It is a virtual boarding school for the uber rich in most cases. Parents looking for structure for their kids away from the temptations of their everyday environment. They literally have students from all over the world there. They have one of the best hockey programs in the country; they have stables of horses and an equestrian program; they have crew and sailing teams. So, yes, not your run of the mill public or P/P school on the banks of Lake Maxinkuckee. I will say if you want to experience it or have your kid experience it, the 2 and 6 week summer camps are raved about. You don’t have to spend a year of Notre Dame tuition to be part of the experience like a regular student. And each Sunday afternoon in the summer they have an amazing military-style parade that much of Maxinkuckee residents come out to watch (or so they used to). As for wrestling, I would say it would be extremely hard to find many elite wrestling families that can afford that price tag. The rich and wrestling are rarely synonymous. So, there has to be a massive academic financial assistance plan if they are going to sustain anything.
  3. Bigger question is: Can a military school in the back hills of northern Indiana that charges $55k/year sustain a program with transfers from across the Midwest? I say no. Forget about the coaching. It’s more of an environment thing. Beautiful campus. Incredible international diversity. Just challenging to maintain at that price tag.
  4. I like it, but your team points don’t jive.
  5. Don’t sleep on Andrew Wilson at 138 or David Guhl at 220. Both will be strong contenders for the Irish.
  6. Let’s go CP. Traicoff and Al Smith are gonna be angry! Can’t wait!
  7. Mike Ester, Demetrius Burton, and Tony Vaughn anchored one of FW Snider's strongest squads ever in 1991-1992. Good memories of those boys at Market Square and through the AAU circuit at Arsenal Tech satellites and Team Indiana. Rest in peace, Mike.
  8. Incredible. From going no AAs in Fargo to a Top 10 “country” in the world with upside, it is a ridiculous statement. Good luck Lucas and Mason. All Hoosiers are in your corner. Crush.
  9. Wow. 40 second tech from Mason. Kid wanted nothing to do with him.
  10. If you haven’t wrestled an Azerbaijani or Moldavian in your career, is it even a career?
  11. If you asked his dad, it broke about 6 months ago.
  12. 1. Silas 2. Zeke By the way, no last names needed. Rasslin’ names 101.
  13. First I’ve heard of Evan Bates. I know he had a big upset early in the tourney, but what school? IHSAA history, etc. Thanks. Go Zeke! Win it!
  14. Tuition is $55k/year. I don’t know the Cernus family financial position, but the aid these families receive is certainly a factor in attending Culver. It is the same problem the Indy private’s face, but on steroids.
  15. Congrats to our Indiana Outlaws for getting 4th out of 60 teams and winning the copper trophy. Led predominately by Cathedral Irish wrestlers, the Outlaws had 2 undefeated Gold All-Americans in Jordan Slivka and Center Grove’s Breyden Littell. Silver All-Americans with one loss were Zeke Seltzer and Alex Mosconi. Roncalli’s Alec Viduya becomes Copper All-American. Congrats to all Indiana teams and wrestlers. It looks like this great state had number of teams that were very competitive.
  16. Um, let's also make sure we don't neglect Cathedral's Ben Harvey. He placed 7th at 79K qualifying him for the World Team Trials. He had one hell of a tournament.
  17. Looks like it is still active! http://www.ihswca.org
  18. I think your intent is positive here, but some points of clarification at least for the Cathedral kids. If you want to use “original community” as where they came from, you would have to take Jordan Slivka off the list as he started in the CYO. He attended St. Barnabas and competed in CYO wrestling until 3rd grade before his legendary ol’ man transferred to ‘Doah. They came back to attend catholic high school as his family situation changed. His cousins currently still rassle with the dirty CYO Southsiders. If “original community” means where the 8th grader graduates from, then you would have to pull Elliott Rodgers out of this group. He wrestled CYO since was in 4th grade at St. Maria Goretti, he attended middle school there, and his dad is the coach. His younger brothers currently wrestle for St. Maria Goretti.
  19. I always find it interesting that people with no knowledge or association with Cathedral or Roncalli think we have all these kids on our team that didn’t grow up in our middle schools and local programs. 90% of the Cathedral team wrestled Northside CYO. I’d say the percentage is even higher for Roncalli with Southside CYO. It’s what gives us strength in football, girls volleyball, etc. The Rebels and Irish have a ton of hammers coming in for the next couple years from our Catholic grade school teams. Other teams like the ones you mention above should be proud of their commitment to the sport and the excellent clubs they have built. But, I wouldn’t call it unique.
  20. What a match! Still buzzing from that one. Cooper was awesome. 3 OT matches in one season with great offense?!? Crazy! Golden Ace was 🔥 last night!
  21. Passive Aggressive much?!?? Another example of “The County” being the county. Congrats on your son’s career. Hopefully, he is a little more modest than his Notorious dad.
  22. Legend. Gonna miss you, Jordo. Grittiest 18 year old I’ve ever met! Boulders for stones!
