    Best looking coaching staff in the state

    I can't believe this is happening. Let's go over a couple of facts here. Welchs leave Purdue with stubble for hair. They join the most attractive coaching staff in the Midwest at Carmel. They leave and are now bald. Humm? Our new staff has bald, hillbilly bowl, Clooney salt and pepper, afro, ginger and mullet. Can anyone really even try to top that?

    An Idea to Think About.

    Here's a thought that hit my brain a couple years ago and I'd like to know what other's think. When a kid transfers school there's almost always three sides of the equation. Parents say, "The IHSAA should let a family do what's best for the kid" and if the school a kid leaves decides to protest, they're quick to say "that move was for an athletic transfer which is not allowed". The school that receives the transfer says, "What am I supposed to do if a kid just showes up?" My thought here isn't touching any of those statements. We've all heard enough on Indianamat about this. Here's my thought that I'd like to know what others think...... What is going to happen to wrestling in the long run as a whole if the number of state placing transfers continues? Is wrestling going to become similar to gymnastics over time? How are the small school/weaker programs going to keep up numbers of participants and quality of participants? What about coaching at a smaller/weaker program? Wouldn't it be more attractive place to coach if a potential state qualifier was in the room? Here is gymnastics program from last year: http://www.ihsaa.org/portals/0/Flip Book/2017-18/gym/index.html#?page=8 If we continue on the growth in number of transfers, what happens to the smaller/weaker schools? How long before the smaller/weaker schools start to drop the sport. Once that starts happening, I'm concerned it will happen with other schools quickly. Are the number of forfeits from 1a schools increasing or decreasing in the past 5 years? What happens when a school has 5 guys on a team, and no one to coach them? I'm the Lorax. I speak for the trees. Are we ruining the future of Indiana wrestling with the amount of transfers?....but everyone needs a thneed, right? If my daughter has a child that want to wrestle (of course I mean 30 yrs from now, after she gets her MBA, starts her own business, and then is allowed to date for the first time), will Indiana wrestling be a sport with 40 schools and the same 4 teams compete for a title?

    An Idea to Think About.

    This is exactly what I'm saying. And so did Riley. But if we look at the top 10 teams in the state tourney last year. Then look at the number of transfers to those programs. If those guys all stayed in their home school district. Can we agree that there's a better chance of them recruiting a 'Seth Riley' to continue/join our sport?

    An Idea to Think About.

    My old Polish brain is still confused. We both admit Sliga stayed in his home school (this one is measurable, his transcripts prove us right). We both agree that the guys in his room benefit from him not transferring to a power program (this on is not quite as measurable, but I'm assuming you don't think it hurt Riley by having Sliga say "come wrestle and you can come to an academy with me if you want). I'm assuming we both agree he had a successful high school career. We both agree that he supplemented his training while staying in his home school. Is that correct? But we also agree that most (if not all) of the guys on the thread about big transfers supplement their training somewhere else besides they home school, correct? Here's my opinion about the schools you mentioned (definitely not measurable). Because Bratcher and Duckworth and Cody Phillips did not leave and go to a power program they helped their small schools do this: 3rd Place Match - Ben Stewart (Cathedral) 41-2 won by decision over Luke Elliott (Eastbrook) 40-4 (Dec 7-4) and 3rd Place Match - Jack Eiteljorge (Carmel) 40-3 won by fall over Tucker Coffman (Union County) 43-8 (Fall 1:51) I'm confused on what you're saying because I read you say that Sliga had success and he included others with his success (in his home school). You said that he is a bad example because he supplemented his training elsewhere. But you also said that most (if not all) of the guys on the big transfers thread already supplements their training elsewhere? They why do they need to transfer at all when they would help the sport as a whole by increasing the popularity of wrestling in a small/weaker program and they can still be successful because they can supplement their training. My real question that comes from the start of this thread is that does having the strongest kids from small/weak programs transferring to power programs have a long term effect on our sport as a whole.

    An Idea to Think About.

    There might be answers if we first had consensus that this is truly an issue that if not address, will have a negative impact on the future of our sport in our state. I'm the Lorax. I speak for the trees! One suggestion that I've brought up with the coaches association is starting an Ethic Committee. We should probably have a different name for it. If there was a committee inside the coaches association that people could bring up situations happening. The committee could then investigate. If it's nothing, then nothing is done. If it finds out misdoings then it can make it public. Another big benefit of having an Ethics Committee could be to promote great things happening in our sport. In the Carmel vs Warren dual a couple years ago we had a match on the JV mat. Both kids had autism. Might have been one of the greatest matches I've ever seen (with a score of like 19-17 and 8 lead changes. It was pretty special).
