  3. Sitting here behind DingoBrigade, just interviewed Kayla Miracle for the South Bend Tribune. She's not happy at all, says she didn't feel like herself all day, felt sluggish even in her wins. You can check out the story in Sunday's South Bend Tribune. Go to: www.southbendtribune.com Gotta get in a plug to justify my expenses.
  4. OK, I know this won't make me popular, but facts are facts. As much as people on this board say they want a dual meet tournament, the fact is that when you had one, only a few schools really supported it. And by that, I mean this: Most years, when the tournament was at Center Grove, the stands were full. The IHSAA liked that. But most years, both Evansville Mater Dei and Bellmont were there, and 2/3 of the crowd was from those two schools. Then a strange year came along. I believe it was 2010. And horror of horrors, neither Bellmont or Mater Dei qualified for the meet. And

Calling is Wednesday, Funeral is Thursday http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Richard-Jay&lc=7158&pid=177034487&mid=6730553 Timing isn't good -- it never is for something like this -- but I know a lot of people who will be making the trip from the Al Smith Invitational to Schererville on Wednesday.
  9. It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I must report Richard Jay passed away this afternoon. Richard was the publisher of MatBurns magazine, and the organizer of the annual Pick-The-Champions contest at the IHSAA state finals. He was at home, recuperating from a stroke that he suffered earlier this year, a few days after his wife died. Richard, who taught and coached at Hammond Gavit, was a well-known figure at wrestling matches across northwest Indiana, and a longtime fixture in the crow's nest at the Merrillville semistate. There were few, if any, people more knowledgeable

  15. It is with a heavy heart that we must report Mary Jay -- the wife of Richard Jay, publisher of "Mat Burns" -- passed away last Friday. Making matters worse, at the same time, Richard suffered a stroke. He is in intensive care as this is written. Richard is a longtime fixture at wrestling meets all around Northwest Indiana. He missed the Merrillville semistate this season for the first time in decades, and many fans noted his absence from the crow's nest overlooking the floor. Richard maintains the famous "quick pins" list for Indiana wrestlers each season, in addition to publishing
