    Indysportsfan reacted to Dingo Brigade in 132 Classic   
    I haven't heard a peep about backflips, imaginary championship belt mimicking, flexing biceps, angrily slamming down ankle bands in a loss...not a peep. It's hard to explain why people would be so selective about demonstrative acts after matches under the lights. Perhaps someone from the outraged group could explain this to me

    Indysportsfan reacted to Dingo Brigade in 132 State Finals - You KNOW IT!   
    It's weird to me that people are focused on things that took place after the match, considering what we were just treated to. We have a lot of spoiled fans in this state.
    As far as what constitutes classlessness, I've never seen Red do anything dirty. Ive seen him take on challenges that few from Indiana have equaled or excelled. I don't see or hear anything from Red that I haven't seen or heard before. If emd fans or fans from any other school hate such 'classlessness', all you have to do is beat him to shut him up.

    To be the 4 seed out of a sectional a wrestler would have lost twice, correct?? Simply looking at the record you should surmise Rhodes is not a 4 seed.

    I stood for 12 hours in the balcony, no seat provided, BUT I was able to watch every mat clearly. In hindsight i want to say THANK YOU to all those fans / teams holding seats even though they were asked multiple times to stop the practice.

    Malarkey. If that were the case it'd be a purely blind draw. Literally no organized professional, and most amateur (IN high school athletics being one of the few exceptions and most widely ridiculed all in formats), sports use blind draws for championship contention. Rankings are a factor.

    Indysportsfan reacted to maligned in We have the headgear thing backwards   
    I'm an economist.  There's extensive research into the fact that being taller as a man and more beautiful as a woman correlates to career advancement.  I'm absolutely sure decision-makers generally don't hire or fire based solely on physical appearance, but the data have a long history and are inarguable: physical appearance affects hiring decisions on a subconscious level.  
     
    I have no desire to get into the headgear/no-headgear discussion.  That's up to coaches, individuals, and families.   But if we're just dealing in facts, it's short-sighted to think that having deformed ears won't affect someone's first impression of you and potentially have a tiny subtle effect in people's minds when they're deciding between you and 5 other qualified people.

    Is there any such thing as an un-biased opinion? All opinions are affected and formed by biases, acknowledged or otherwise. So allow me to acknowledge my bias for Nick Lee as best pound for pound. The good news is that there is no bias to my bias. It is purely biased.

    Indysportsfan reacted to Alias in Team State Talk and Predictions   
    Great day of wrestling. My only complaint about the tournament was the LONG breaks in between rounds. I understand the need, but it seemed silly that so many 2 hour plus breaks existed in between some wrestlers matches. Also, I thought it was unfortunate that red and his father did not decide to bump up and take the challenge. The match would have been one for the ages, and although I believe lee would win, the match would allow two of the pound for pound best wrestlers in the state and maybe in state history to challenge one another. At the point the match would have occured, the dual was decisively over. It would not have made any difference in the dual. Nothing against the kid, but I believe that to be the best you must beat the best. These two kids are the best, and it would have gotten a lot of attention and gained both kids a national competition quality opponent. There are wrestlers around the country that travel thousands of miles to get quality competition, with an opponent like lee in front of you, you've got to take it.
