    Darren Elkins this weekend

    It's not talked about here often on this discussion board as others, but Darren Elkins has had quite the UFC career. If you get a chance to watch Darren's last fight, you might be able to understand how tough of a guy Darren really is. I watched the fight from my sofa with my wife, and to be honest. I was hoping the ref would stop it because I can't see a situation where Darren would quit and I was worried for his safety........and 5 min later he knocks the guys out to get what some have called one of the best comebacks in the history of UFC. Darren has his biggest fight of his career this Saturday on Fox if you get a chance to watch a fellow Hoosier as Co-Main event for UFC Fight Night.

    Best graduating class from one school ever

    The Delta teams in the 80's were crazy good. The 03 Mater Dei team was the best I've seen. Here's their seniors results that year: Craig Macke (41-1) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Finished 3rd after losing to Escebedo in the semis Aaron Scott (31-7) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Finished 3rd losing to Tsirtsis in the semis Craig Weinzapfel (38-0) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ Dustin Nosko (20-2) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ Sam Wildeman (34-1) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ We lost a close dual meet to Griffith that year in the team Semi State. After a couple of days of being pissed off about it, we realized that the Mater Dei team had a legit chance to shut us out at team state if we would have won. Macke is on my list of 'best guys to never win'. He was special.

    Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    While we can't deny the numbers here point to the fact that specialization of sports leads to more success by your math here, but I do not agree with the methodology to this thought process. I'm not a fan of folding a sliver of fact around an opinion. Using your same numbers, I can also say that the reason there's more 4-timers since 2004 is because they had iphones. The numbers clearly state that since the invention of iphones we have had more 4 time state champions. There are many factors involved in winning 4 IHSAA state titles. We could also use your math to say that it's clearly easier to win a state title since the age of specialization and year-round competition from an early age. Is it possible that Angel Escobedo would not have won a state title as a freshman if some butt kicker cross country kid quit wrestling as a 10 yr old to just train cross country? Ugh. It's been my opinion for a long time that if you play a sport with the aspirations of money you're doing it for the wrong reasons. Play a sport because you like it. Workout because you like working out. If you workout because your going to get a scholarship, then what happens after you get a scholarship? It's over. But if you workout because you like working out, you have long term life habit that will be with you forever. Tom Cameron was my high school coach and the biggest mentor in my life. When I got my first coaching position he gave me a book called Winning is Everything, and Other American Myths. I highly recommend it to coaches and parents.

    Rest In Peace Tim Ayersman

    I was fortunate enough to have known Tim for close to 20 years. Tim was not only passionate about Kyle's wrestling, but all of Indiana wrestling. We lost a good one this week. Thoughts and prayers to the Ayresmans.

    ISWA meeting/Trip Crown/Election this Sunday

    I agree this is an important time for the ISWA and this could also be a great opportunity for our organization. I'm hoping that this election becomes a positive thing for us all. I've have personally spoken to Davison and Rossbottom about the election. I've talked to many coaches on the Davison side and the Rossbottom side of the equation. The big concern from the folks on the Rossbottom side of the equation, is keep bringing up the "time commitment''. I'm struggling to understand that part of the equation. Do we just assume that Davison won't spend the time needed to commit to the job? Has that been an issue in the past with Davison? The time commitment piece of this puzzle doesn't fit. Even if there is currently a larger time commitment than Davison can commit, s there a chance that the organization could be run more efficiently and there isn't as big of a 'time commitment'? The idea of a coach leading our organization is attractive. I believe my first time on the ISWA Board of Directors was in 1996. I've been pretty outspoken about our association having wrestling on the back burner as we were more concerned about running tournaments. I think the bigger issue here is that can we stay together as an organization. Coach Miller, I'll call you around 4:00. Let me know if there's a better time. 317.701.1512
