  1. Would love to see this inter-region matchup, but it's so hard to envision anyone taking down CG in football this year. Cathedral is the only one that would be less than a 2-touchdown underdog according to Sagarin's predictive ratings, but they're in the wrong class. You can only beat who you play, but Merrillville are 0-1 against Sagarin's statewide Top 25 (#5 Chatard), with two wins over the Top 64 (#29 Hobart and #35 Andrean). Meanwhile, CG are 6-0 inside the Top 25 with a 20-0 win their closest game. All that said, you just don't know until they meet on the field. Although they'
  2. So low-risk sports stay in the fall, others such as football move to the spring, and spring sports have a "summer" season in May and June. Wrestling slightly shortened.
  3. What will be the biggest challenges with the new requirements from the Department of Education for running practices and matches if these requirements continue on as expected into winter sports? (Page 18 is the beginning of the relevant info)
  4. I don't know Jaden, but did you mean to say "she"?
  5. Yeah, it's a shame we dont have any way of doing an all-in tournament so teams can prove their worth in the same season as the event. It's been a disappointing circumstance for a good long while. With that said, CG obviously faced the same qualification process as everyone. They had some bad luck, but the bottom line is that they didnt score enough points to win a bid or to reach the threshold to be considered for a vote-in spot. It's a bit of a cold, emotionless, black-and-white process in that regard. Even if there's compelling evidence you'll be amazing next year, you have to win the m
  6. If you're referring to the suit for birthdays--it seemingly won't be an option any more.
  7. Think of bracketing in terms of individuals, not teams. We would want to keep individuals where they were randomly drawn other than the fairness of reslotting seeds. The new replacement would go where the now non-existent 6-seed slot used to be because it's the only non-drawn slot available.
  8. Dawson Combest and Jack Eiteljorge were named D2 All-Americans wrestling for UIndy. UIndy's Ana Abduljelil was also named.
  9. Kris Rumph also D3 first team All-American wrestling for Wartburg.
  10. He'll turn 26 that academic year. And he'll be transfer eligible and have great credentials. He could look for an opening and go for the ultra boss senior-year double of head coach-national champ.
  11. Yeah, if they grant replacement Olympic redshirts for the upcoming year, it would be his third. Not many guys get to wrestle their last year of college eligibility in front of their grandkids, but Stevan is headed that way.
  12. 125 - Angel Escobedo (champ, 4th, 5th, world top 5) 133 - Stevan Micic (2nd, 3rd, world top 5) 141 - Nick Lee (5th, 5th, current clear top 2) 149 - Jason Tsirtsis (champ, 3rd, 7th) 157 - Dave Lilovich (4th, 7th) 165 - Andrew Howe (champ, 2nd twice, 3rd) 174 - Bud Palmer (2nd, 3rd) 184 - Keith Davison (3rd, 5th) 197 - Riley Lefever (undefeated D3, as high as #3 on Team USA senior depth chart) HWT - Mason Parris (current clear top 2)
  13. Really hard to say this early on about a class. There have been so many good ones. 2004 was loaded, with its 9 champs and numerous legends amongst them: 112 Chris Miller (3 time placer) 119 Jose Escobedo (4 time qualifier, 3 time placer, 2 time finalist..part of the legendary Griffith group of that era) 135 Andrae Hernandez (2-timer, junior national runner-up) 140 Darren Elkins (UFC mainstay and world top 10) 145 Alex Tsirtsis (4-timer, 236-0, some people's GOAT) 160 Adam O'Neill (small school college AA) 171 Blake Maurer (4-timer, junior A
  14. The truth is, the Quant simulation seemed to spit out very realistic results in terms of percentage and likelihood of upsets--but their final score outputs were not calibrated very well. The WrestleStat simulation had 95% favorites winning and virtually all matches between close seeds as 1-point matches. Not realistic in either respect.
