    1oldwrestler reacted to LongBlackLine in Yappi for Indiana   
    That's just wildly inaccurate. Discussion and debate drive those thread/post numbers. There is a weekly scores thread pinned at the top every week, but the vast majority of threads and underlying posts go well beyond just who won.
     
    This is kind of a silly debate to have because I don't think anyone is under the impression wrestling is more popular than football at the high school level.
     
    The disparity stands to reason, but another interesting comparison to gauge activity/participation would be to look at post counts and years active since account registration. The GID has hundreds of users with well over 1k posts and hundreds more that have been active for 5+ years. I'd be curious to know how many IM has comparably?
    This kind of paranoia is why wrestling is a dying sport. It's why colleges offer fractional scholarships or financial merit based money instead of full rides for an entire roster. It's why the Olympics almost dropped the (one of?) oldest sport in the games. You should be engaging as many people as you can. Now is a particularly good time with all the bad coverage surrounding football and CTE. Wrestling is a great sport with a lot of ancillary benefits, promote it. Save the isolationism attitude for Trump rallies.

    1oldwrestler reacted to TripleB in Boycott Freestyle State   
    I feel your pain man, I coach elem, ms, HS, run Club, do rankings on here, coach w Outlaws, coach w ISWA, coach Varsity Football, have a daughter, Mrs 3B is in military and she was just in TX for a month. I still try to find time to make one meeting or make sure my club has a rep at one meeting a year, usually the annual in Sept. When I have issues I contact Jason Miller, or Danny Struck, or Louis Rosbottom, or I email Trina or Lauren at ISWA office. Venting and complaining on here won't solve squat. Become part of the process.

    After 12 years of being involved in wrestling in the state of Indiana, the Franklin family is saying thanks for the memories.  Two boys and over 215 career IHSAA (between them) victories later we are bowing out and thanking the sport for all it has taught us.  Jack made it to Banker's this year which was a special moment for all of us.  For those of you that remember Jack's older brother, Andy (3x NHC Champ - 2008, 2009 & 2010), he is in his second year of law school at IU (Bloomington) and in the top 20% of his class.  Jack is headed to Ball State this Fall.  As for me, I hope the aging process slows to a normal pace as it feels I've aged 25 years during the times I lived and died with my sons these past 12 years.  Homestead HS, where Jack and Andy attended, is in great hands with Coaches Devaux, Stockman and Oberlin.  Viva Indiana wrestling!
