    ENoblewrestling got a reaction from hcsd309 in I have an idea for a new top ten.   
    I think it would be cool if the officials rated the coaches on sportsmanship, I think that would help with coaches mistreating the officials... I'd be interested to see fan-bases get rated too.

    ENoblewrestling got a reaction from JoshMed in National Preps   
    I would admit that there are some things that are difficult with having the IHSAA as our sports sanctioning body, but I think it would be a horrible detriment to the sport if we did not have them.
    Without the IHSAA the sport at the high school level would resemble the sport at the youth level. So teams would become all-star travel teams with-in a few years.  Not to mention that schools would not put the same funding and care into their programs... Why would a school keep and maintain a wrestling room for a club team that isn't IHSAA sanctioned?
    I also think that overall numbers would take a huge hit.  Think of how many kids come out for wrestling to just be a part of the team you would lose all of those kids.  Busing, uniforms,  gym schedules all would play a role as well.
    Finally no IHSAA no state tourney like we have now.  There would be no semi-states in great facilities, no state finals at Banker's Life.  
    This isn't to say that the say that wrestling would die if we went this route, it would just look much different and be much worse imo.

    ENoblewrestling got a reaction from base in Golden Globes question   
    You don't get a question about the Golden Globes everyday but I was watching last night and saw Adam Driver a lot.  He is from Mishawaka, and was a marine so I was just curious if anyone knew if he had ever tried wrestling, or even wrestled in middle or high school.  With the strong tradition at Mishawaka its just something I have been curious about.

    Rapid fire is putting it mildly, I couldn't keep up.  If there is any way I could buy the video or get my hands on Mark Manning's presentation I would greatly appreciate it. 
    I am new to the wrestling community but I am so grateful to the "grizzled veterans" for making me feel so welcomed to this special group of people.  This is just my second year attended the clinic but both years have been great and I have gained valuable information that I have been able to implement into our wrestling program.  Looking forward to a great season of wrestling.  Good luck this season.

    ENoblewrestling got a reaction from swain358 in Is Indiana's wrestling talent decreasing?   
    Haven't forfeits always been a part of wrestling? I have no clue on the overall trend or anything like that, but it doesn't seem to me that it is horrendously worse now than it was when I wrestled, or when I began coaching.  All of this stuff ebbs and flows too.  This will be my 11th year as a head coach, and I can say that in the last decade alone I have seen teams that had literally 3 wrestlers on the team at one point, go on to be at team state, and win regionals.  I have also seen it go the other way, teams with a lot of kids go down to a few.  
    I think A LOT of it is about the "culture" of the sport at the school.  For whatever reason it seems like some schools have it, others don't.  Again this can change with a class, or with various coaches...
    I also don't see this as an issue that is small school vs big school.  I spent my first 9 years at a small school, and we very rarely forfeited, not that it never happened, but it seemed easier to get a kid to try it out, or come out to fill a spot.  I now coach at a much larger school, and had two forfeits all year.  I've found communication to be much more difficult at a larger school, and I am in the building. I imagine that getting things "going" is much more difficult no matter  the school if your not in the building.  
    With this being said once a team culture is established with-in a program it is something that can last for a long period of time.  It is just difficult to get going.  I would also say in my opinion getting the culture right is just as important to a program as having a coach who knows all of the moves in the world.

    Human Nature is to always say things were harder yrs ago and not just in wrestling but all aspects of life.....the truth is the kids nowadays wrestle a lot more across the country in bigger tournaments and Duals from a very young age. So IMO I think the sport of wrestling with talent coming out of Indiana will be just fine
