  1. Tate Forcier is named starter for tomorrow.  Michigan will have 500 yds rushing and 7 yds passing tomorrow as they score 40.  Tressel will then be nervous and take back his nice words for the Maize and Blue.


    At the same time Nevada will roll up 60 points on the Irish and Weis will have a heart attack after eating his 15th brat of the afternoon.


    My predictions.  You heard it here first.

  2. I'm more upset about 3 quarterbacks this weekend then the NCAA investigation.  I haven't given up hope yet. 


    I'm glad they got a jerk for a coach now.  I was tired of watching Carr be up on Northwestern by 30 and put the 3rd team in so they win by 7.  I was hoping they hired Tharp.  I'll settle for Rich Rod and see what he can do this year. 


  3. I can hear them complain now that the only reason Michigan wins is they practice too hard. 


    Very typical ohio state fan.  How quick buckeyes have forgotten the Maurice Clarett years.  Didn't he get a DUI while having a gun and stolen property in his car and then lead the Big 10 in rushing? 

  4. We are excited to announce that Alex Tsirtsis is back in Northwest IN and will be running sessions at the new CIA-IL on Thursdays starting Aug. 6th.  Alex is a 4 X IHSAA State Champion and an NCAA All American for University of Iowa.  He and Vince Sessa will be running workouts will at Bloom Trail High School from 6:00-7:30.

  5. CIA still has sessions in Zionsville and Center Grove.  We're excited about the kids in the room at both facilities.  Both rooms have HS state placers coming to supplement their training.  Let us know if you're interested in working out with us.


    Zionsville-Thursday nights

    5:00-6:30 Middle School and under

    6:45-8:15 High School


    Center Grove-Wednesday nights



    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions



  6. CIA Wrestling is excited to offer sessions at Center Grove High School.  CIA Wrestling has been in the Indianapolis area since March of 2005.  We have offered wrestlers the opportunity to train with other quality wresters in your area.


    Sessions will be on Wednesdays starting on April 8th.  There will be two separate sessions.  Middle school age and under will workout from 5:00-6:30 and high school age wrestlers will workout from 6:45-8:15.


    The staff of CIA will coach sessions.  CIA Wrestling is based on the philosophy that being a champion does not happen in big meets but rather comes from how you live your life both on and off the mat. CIA is committed to providing wrestlers with a place to develop both their skills, and their ability to train.  A wrestler can meet his/her full potential by training with quality partners and receiving quality coaching that is based on a time tested philosophy that has produced countless champions.


    We are now taking applications to join these sessions.  Sessions are expected to fill, so please contact us if you would like to be part of this training.

  7. Reminder that CIA NWI sessions start their new schedule next week.  Session will be on Sundays and Tuesdays.


    Grey (MS and under group) 5:30-7:00

    Black (HS group) 7:00-8:30


    Please contact Coach Hawkins if you have any questions



    We are also looking into starting  a new classroom session called "Bowling-The Mental Game".  If you' are  tired of whipping your nerdy buddies on the lanes, but losing to athletes who talk trash at the bowling alley...then this is the group for you.  Our first session is titled "I don't suck, he's just saying that" .  It will help you learn to deal with these types of situations and many more.

  8. There are still openings in the groups at CIA NWI at Hanover Central HS.  Last Tues. workouts had 5 of this year's state champions in the room.  Along with those 5 were multiple placers and a coach who thinks he's a good bowler.


    Contact Coach Hawk if your interested in working out.




  9. We will be back in the room tonight at Zionsville HS.  Middle school and under from 5:00-6:30 and the high school only group from 6:45-8:15.  Had a good turnout and a great workout last week and we think these sessions will fill by the end of the month.  contact us if you're interested in being a part of these groups.



  10. We're excited about CIA-NWI's room this spring. 


    7th grade and under 5:30-7:00

    8th grade and up 7:00-8:30


    Great group of dedicated kids signed up to supplement their training. 


    Contact Coach Hawkins if you're interested in getting in with this group.




  11. This Thursday, March 5th starts our new sessions at Zionsville HS.  We will host workouts on Thursday nights.  Wrestlers that are middle school and under workout from 5:00-6:30 and HS wrestlers workout from 6:45-8:15.  Please email us if you'd like to be included in these sessions.  We've got a good crew signed up and look forward to spending time with the dedicated wrestlers in that area.


    There are only a few spots left in the CIA workouts at Cathedral sessions.  We're excited about the groups there.  Each group has multiple state champions in it.  Let us know if you're interested.




  12. CIA Indy is now setting our spring sessions.  Our high school groups have filled the past 4 years.  There are over 50 wrestlers in this weekend's Semi-States that worked out with us last spring/summer.  Please don't wait if to contact us if you plan on training with us this spring/summer.

  13. I agree Rat that upside potential is higher than downside risk.  To many countries that don't like us need it to be 60-70 at the cheapest.


    I don't know if I want to get into the restaurant business with my buddy up north.  If I can steal one of my favorite Tharp quotes, "That's like putting the chubby kid in charge of the candy store"

  14. Rat,


    I believe that USO is an ETF that follows the price of oil from The United States, not the oil companies themselves.  How much to invest in USO to hedge your expense at the pump is tough to figure out, depending on how much gas you actually use. 


    Actually since your first post the price of USO is down 10%.  A $1,000 investment would only be worth $900 today.


    I think a much safer investment would be to open a JJ's Pizza on the north side of Indy.  I've been down here five years and haven't found a good pizza yet.  You'd make millions when the folks down here got their first stuffed chunk sausage and mushroom pie.




  15. I think the better comparison would be to see which staff is better looking...the Portage 04-05 coaching staff vs the 08-09 LN staff.


    Hinkel/Mundell vs Weimer/Gondol

    No contest here.  Anyone who has been in the checkout line at the grocery has seen the cover of Vogue and knows that gangley stick figures are in style.  Even though Weimer makes a good attempt.

    Advantage Portage


    Tharp vs Douglas

    Both bald and soft spoken.  Only one has been described in the newspaper as a wad of muscle.

    Advantage Portage


    Alaniz vs Williams

    Jared makes good effort, but can he really be expected to compete here vs. the 5' latin?

    Advantage Portage


    Might be a shut out if Portage can get the right matchups.
