  1. As the clock official that worked this match, I would be curious what your opinion was. I know it was close, but in my mind it was called after the buzzer. I felt horrible for the kid, but I felt I made the right call. I will take whatever comments come as a result of this.
  2. that was ugly, we can only hope that he is able to go next week.
  3. i will say this, i was standing behind the scorers table when this happened. all the officials that were there agreed with the call. i am not now, nor have i ever been an official, but i know many of them, and have very candid conversations with them.all of them said it was a good call, but a tough one to make. the kid handled it wish class and dignity, and deserves huge respect for that.
  4. no, he doesn't have to leave the building, he just cannot go onto the floor the rest of the tourney. i saw him back in the hallways, and told him that was a great call for a coach to get tossed out for. I cannot imagine another coach not losing his mind. in my opinion the right call would have been stalemate and go back to the center. that being said, bad calls are part of the sport, as with any other sport.
  5. Coach McCormik, you are indeed correct, there are two sides to every story, and I have known you for a very long time, and known you to always be willing to do what you could to help a wrestler when they needed the help. I would like to ask you directly what is the schools side of the story on this situation. I am never sure how the IHSAA works, and with the new open school rules in place for non-student athletes it only muddies the issue even more.
  6. This is an easy answer. Baseball and AAU basketball are sports that some on this board do not care about, so what those coaches do or dont do have no bearing. I realize it is the exact same thing, and see no issue with it. If the coach is willing to put in the time, and the kids are willing to put in the time, then let them do it.
  7. Wait, did I see something about someone eating M & M's? Where are these and can I have some?

    Petrov

    I was thrilled last night when I found out that Paul had won. The Petrov family is a class act. We have had matches with them for year, every time we met it was a very fun and exciting match, but win or lose there was always respect between the two. I look forward every year to seeing him and his dad at state. Dan Gable once said that gold medals are made of hard work, determination, and a hard to find alloy called guts. Well, the Petrovs havee and always will add to that. They add class. Congrats Paul, you worked your tail off for this, and deserve it. Good luck wherever your wrestling takes
  9. Not if you are a WC fan....lol Actually it looks like it was a great tourney, congrats to all that moved on and good luck next weekend at regionals.

  11. No, they were not a new organization, however in the years my son wrestled in this event his age/weight group participation grew from about 12 when we wentto the 1st one to over 30 by the time he was a junior age group. This event grew in popularity very quickly. I would say that if the ISWA had a problem it was one of not reacting quickly enough to the change in participants and in finding a facility that could handle the number of kids that attended. Can they do things better sure, are they working on them, I am sure, Will they ever run an event in the same manner as the Tof C, I hope not, t
  12. I am really mad that folkstyle state is being held at Warren Central this year. My sons first trip was to the bloomingotn sports complex, we went from there to the facility on IU's campus to the facility in the old metal stamping plant, to Huntignton. And now that he is in college and not wrestling in this event, they put it in my back yard. I could have saved thousands in gas and hotels over the years. BTW, I sure do miss all the time we got to spend together as he was growing up. No matter where they hold it, the wrestling community wil find a way to pull it off and make it memora
  13. La Quinta just underwent a fairly major over haul about 2 years ago, Candlewood suites is brand new, however I do know that the Fairfield will not have good temperature control in the pool until I get the guys scheduled to install the new a/c unit for them. I dont know about the hotels out at 70 and post. But yes, the smaller hotels in the area could easily be someplace i would rather not stay in. If you go to 70 and post, go north of 70, there is a baymont hotel there that looks to be decent. Rest. in the area, include all the fast food places, Long horn, Olive Garden, texas road house,
  14. Not a problem, just trying to show some east side hospitality. There are many more hotels near here. Those are the ones I could think of off the top of my head, I just had to find the numbers is all. I dont have a kid wrestling there any longer, but I am sure at some point I will be in and around. When there is wrestling going on over at the school, I am usually pretty close.
  15. A partial list of hotels in the very near area I.E. 5-10 minutes from the school Marriott 352-1231 Candlewood Suites 7050 E. 21st Fairfield Inn 7110 E 21st Ramada Inn 357-9277 Quality Inn 352-0481 Knights INN 353-8484 Always Inn 356-1036 Budget Inn 353-9781 Comfort Inn 359-9999 Hampton Inn 359-9900 Days Inn 899-2100 La Quinta Inn 359-1021 Sorry, I did not find a phone number for a few of the locations, but I am sure the internet will help you out there. There is a Star bucks just south of 21st on Shadeland, if you go in, just tell them that Dave sent ya. Th
  16. At Shadeland and 21st street, you have Marriott, LaQuenta, Cambria suites, Ramada. At 70 and Post, there are a number of hotels as well. All of these are within 5 minutes from the high school
  17. Having watched WC a few times this year, they will have 1-3 kids in the finals, and advance 4-6 to the regionals, and 1, maybe 2 to SS, and might get one to state. This is a very young WC team, and they are going to get better, but it will take time. The coaches they have there have all the credentials you would like to see, and if they can get some of the boys walking the halls in this school to come out for wrestling, the school could be a real force in wrestling for years to come. They are not there yet, but soon. Roncalli is going to run away with this sectional and it wont be close
  18. Coach Thornton has always been a class act everytime we have ever had the pleasure to run into him. My son and I wish him the best, and a speedy recovery. Get well soon Coach. David and Nick Odom
  19. Danny Williams, 2 time state champ for Warren, coached Wright and Johnson jones last year in his 1st year as a head coach. Heck of a way to start your coaching career.
  20. Not sure if it will do any good, but I just posted alink to this topic on my facebook page. I have alot of wrestling people on there lets see if we can get this coach and his wrestlers wearing some proper gear.
  21. Thats one of Carlins two way words like balls, its ok to say the batter has two balls on him, but you cant say I think......... One of the best comedic bit of all time, ranks right up there with "Who's on first"
  22. Trine results from the Bud Whitehill national duals in Williamsburg Pa. this past weekend.

  23. Head butting is such a tough call to make, some call it tough wrestling, others call it brutality. But whatever you call it, get used to it, you see it alot at the next level. As far as checking the oil, that is something that does need to be stopped. If for no other reason then it has to be both painful, and unsanitary to say the least.
  24. Congrats to the Trine wrestling team. They went over to the KNox College Chuck Porter duals, and went 4-0 on the day while giving up 12 points right off the bat by not having their 125, 133 guys there. A number of the guys went 4-0 on the day, and if memory serves, they only lost 4 matches that were actually wrestled, and those were all matches that were very close and could have gone either way.
  25. Ok, I have seen "grasping" called and the accompanying hand signal and how the offending wrestler looked and must have felt as the ref called it. What is the hand signal by a ref for "checking the oil". Not sure why a kid would want to do this, but if it is seen, it should be a very graphic display by the ref so that everyone in the gym knows where you just put your fingers. The embarrassment alone might cause the kids to stop doing it.
