  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.
  15. I won't say never. With the NCAA simulation that TrackWrestling posted that was mathematically very realistic, Purdue finished 10th--only 11 points behind 5th. If Schroeder hadn't gotten an unlucky wrestleback draw and finished 7th instead of losing in the blood round, Coleman finishes 5th instead of 7th, and Lyon/Filius/Parriott win 4 matches between them instead of 2, Purdue is top 5.
  16. In imaginary land, Nick Lee falls by one point again, 6-5, to Pletcher; and Mason Parris emphatically avenges his only loss by winning a national championship, 5-0, over Gable Steveson. Purdue ends up 10th as a team.

  18. TrackWrestling is running a simulated NCAA finals based on strength values of each wrestler from all past individual match score results. It then essentially rolls dice with predetermined probabilities of all possible results and spits out a randomly selected result based on those probabilities. Some of the match scores in their simulation are inflated but the number of upsets that get randomly chosen seems about right, so it's fun looking through the brackets they've posted in the same way as all Track tournaments. Some interesting results for Indiana guys so far heading into the final day:

  20. Goshen (a couple of these are stretched slightly to make a lineup): 106: Gerardo Quiroz, 2nd 113: Michael Bryant, 3rd, 3x qualifier 120: Tom Skinner, 7th, 3x qualifier 126: Chris Bowman, 2x qualifier 132: Schuyler Barkes, 4th & 5th 138: George Pestow, 3rd 145: Andrew Yoder, 4th, 3x qualifier 152: Brian Goss, 2x qualifier 160: Jim Hoke, 4th twice 170: Shannon Hunter, 7th 182: Dave Edlund, champ & 3rd 195: Miguel Navarro, 6th & 8th 220: Joe Piwoszkin, 3rd-7th-7th 285: Hershberger, 4th; Hanson, 4th; or Daniel
  21. In a sense, Track and Swimming work like this. We earn our 2, 3, 4 slots per event based on athletes' recent achievement of time standards. Then we have trials where someone can earn the right to be our rep whether they were one of the ones that previously met that standard or not.
  22. Both ladies roll easily into the finals and qualify their weights for the US for the Olympics. They still have to win trials whenever they happen, but there's a definite Olympic spot waiting for them. Our ladies only qualified 4 of 6 weights last cycle, so this is really nice work by both girls. Congrats!!
