  1. I can't remember the D2 school in Nebraska who won the D2 national championship and was told they were being cut before they got home from the tournament. Nebraska-Omaha...On March 25, 2011, the Nebraska Board of Regents approved a plan set forth by UNO Athletics to reclassify from Division II to Division I, thereby paving the way for the Mavericks to join The Summit League beginning in July of that same year. As part of the reclassification, UNO discontinued the football and wrestling programs to cut costs and to better align with the sports sponsored by The Summit League.

  3. Maybe you should have...that adds up to 80. 66 + 3= 69 + 3= 72 + 4 = 76 + 4 = 80
  4. Wyoming Seminary’s cost of attendance is $56,550 if living on campus for the 2019-20 school year.
  5. Top 3 to Semi State in 1986, I believe.
  6. New York has 2 classes http://nysphsaa.org/Sports/Wrestling/Individual-Championship-Central
  7. Automatic Frosh-Soph State Qualifiers ... any Indiana Freshman or Sophomore wrestler who qualifies for an IHSAA Semi-State is automatically qualified and will be imported into the State Final Tournament. They are not permitted in the Qualifiers. They are only participants if they pay the entry fee on-site at the State Championships.
  8. Mooresville uses 4 mats first round, 3 mats for semis and 2 for the final round.
  9. You stop it once the wrestler that is down 15 points gets on top. There is no reversal or opportunity for a fall—he already lost the match by getting down 15.
  10. By old format do you mean having an 8 team bracket? Everyone got 3 matches. Winners in the 1st round were guaranteed top 4 placement. Losers wrestled each other to determine who wrestled for 5th. Losers of that match wrestled for 7tn.
  11. And Bailey—dad won 2 at Martinsville and Brayden won at Cathedral.
  12. I don’t see Miller in that bracket.
  13. 2013–106–also had Hudkins
  14. Didn’t say anything about being soft. My point is that we aren’t the only ones that set up a tournament the way we do. You can hardly seed the sectionals because too many coaches are trying to get a competitive advantage as opposed to separating the best wrestlers. No way could you come up with a system to separate the kids at semi-state or state that anybody would agree to.
  15. I counted Mooresville with 23. Did you include Indian Creek?
  16. Division II does their national tournament the same way we do our state tournament. Best 2 (or 3 or 4) guys could be on the same side. They don’t talk or complain about it being seeded.
  17. If we went back to 13 weight classes, we could eliminate the 2 pages of the rule book that list the criteria for tiebreaks in dual meets.
  18. Tony, I understand what you’re saying. My point is every time someone mentions class wrestling, it’s met with a “work harder” response. You can’t have it both ways. Maybe the kid from the big school should “work harder” and not lose in the round to go. For the record, I’m for class wrestling and wrestlebacks. I think both would make our sport better. The gap between the “haves” and “have nots” has never been greater than it is right now.
  19. I don't think you can be anti-class wrestling and pro-wrestleback...you said it yourself--to be the best you gotta beat the best. Why get a second opportunity to qualify for state? Is it because that's how wrestling is done across the country? If so, its also classed across the country. I would argue that a lot of small schools are dedicated and putting in the work as well. I think a point that some on this board are missing is what about the small school that does everything right--open rooms, opportunities for additional training, etc, only to see their future star(s) enroll at
  20. I don't disagree that classing basketball was the main reason for the drop in attendance. But, its possible that the drop was due to a loss of the casual fans...i.e, once it was classed, you only had parents, relatives and students attending those tournament games--maybe because of the travel that is now an issue and not the local guy who attended every sectional since 1972. It was a lot more convenient to attend the tournament when it was local. I would argue that wrestling doesn't get the a lot of the casual fans that basketball and football do.
  21. Maybe the drop in attendance is due to the fact that there is a lot more to do in 2017 than there was in 1984. People have more entertainment options. The same can be said for wrestling participation. In the 80's and 90's, kids joined high school sports teams because that was what you did. If you weren't varsity, you participated on the jv and were still part of a team. Now, if you aren't varsity, you have a lot of options (internet, video games, etc.) to occupy your time that doesn't include being someone's back up. In an instant gratification/5 second highlight society, this shouldn't be tha
  22. He started at Tri-West. And had less than 10 kids on the team. But he did have a state qualifier both years he was there. No offense taken...
  23. I believe he had to MFF at semi-State the following year in the semis.
  24. From coytecooper.com... Dr. Cooper got his Ph.D. from Indiana University in Sport Marketing and was a college professor for 9 years where he established a line of research in the area of branding and social media marketing.
