  1. But would renting venues such as The Ford Center for two days be a viable option in this situation? I like the idea I just don't know if it will all work out if your talking about rental for another whole day. What do the other venues cost the IHSAA for semi-state? I'd hate to lose The Ford Center as a very comfortable place to watch some really good wrestling but other than Seymour's gym who would host an event like this in the southernmost part of the state? Seymour wasn't exactly comfortable but it did serve a purpose. The other good thing about The Ford Center is that we as wrestling fans don't have to worry about manning concession stands, that's a big load off of shoulders, as a grade school coach I have a hard time finding parents to take care of this when our turn comes up.
  2. The Bible doesn't say to wear straw hats, suspenders, and to not let anyone take your picture either but that's how the Amish see fit to live their lives, not saying it's my way just that they choose to live their faith in that manner I forgot about the "not wrestling starters" stuff, I agree that was a big factor in losing Team State. We can't wrestle them in the feeder league so why would we wrestle them outside of that?
  3. I was under the impression that attendance was the reason we lost team state. I have no issues with girls wrestling girls but as a Catholic I cannot condone boys wrestling girls.
  4. I watched this week's match and the state championship back to back.I may be biased but I think Lee was injured at the state championships. Seeing him this week vs then there's just no comparison Lee just seemed hurt to me in the finals match especially when watching him in the third period. I also think Red will turn it on for the post season, he'd take the win no doubt but I think he was doing his homework on this match, if they meet again with advancement or a championship on the line I think we see a different Red.
  5. The private school comment is a B.S. statement, I truly hope you're joking. I know of several private schools that can't field a full team much less compete for a 4A state wrestling championship.
  6. Looking for this event on track wrestling can’t find the event. Any links?
  7. I get that teams want better competition but why pull out of MD when you haven’t won it? I’m scratching my head on this one.
  8. I'll bite. What MD wrestler came from outside of MD's feeder school system?
  9. I'm going with Andy Schneider of Mt. Vernon. Two time champ and dominate through both years. However Chalfant was impressive as well as Chico Adams. I'm going with Andy Schneider of Mt. Vernon.

  10. As far as hype and crowd energy goes I'd have to say the MD/Evansville Central dual in the 92-93 season (I'm not positive on the year) at MD. The place was packed rabid fans on both sides and no love lost between the programs at the time. It was an electric environment going into that match, a fun time to be a little JV kid who got to wrestle infront of a full house. Another classic was the 94 Indiana's Best when MD squeeked by Belmont. I think it's safe to say that MD has had some barn burners over the years, it's amazing that Coaches Goebel and Helfrich are still breathing today after all they've been through.
  11. This was 20 something years ago... I had the mother of the opponent I just pinned come down from the stands and chew me out for wrestling her son too hard and rough. She kept shoving her fist under my chin trying to get at my throught. This was in Tenn. and the kids coaches were about ten feet away from her just watching the whole thing happen, I didn't know they were his coaches at the time. I kept telling her that I was taught to keep wrestling as hard as I could for as long as I could and if her son couldn't keep up it wasn't my fault. She stormed off and one of the kid's coaches came up and appologized, he said he was sorry about that and she does that everytime the kid got beat. I just looked at the guy and was like "OK???" None of my coaches were around at the time because there were six mats going at the time and all the mats had one of my team-mates on one. I thought I was going to have to keep her from coming at me for a minute but I didn't retaliate. CRAZY stuff sometimes! On another note I sometimes wonder if my wife will be one of the crazy ones, probably not to that extent but she sure gets worked up when our boys are on the mat.
  12. I really hate it when you post stuff like that.
  13. I was wanting a wressteling mat for home use, small maybe 12x12 for my two sons to practice on, they're just staring out in grade school so I don't need a huge mat right now just something to keep them off the carpet (even though that's how me and my brothers started). There are a few brands out there but I'd hate to buy a lomon, does anyone have any expierence with this and if so what mat would you suggest?
  14. Where the hell is that dead horse I want to beat the heck out of him for a while!
  15. My turn! My turn!!!!!! 14 wrestlers on one team, 6 wrestlers on another, will the team with 14 win? Yes. Of the 6 wrestlers on the full squad, do they weigh more than the squad with only 6 guys? Are they given an extra point in the match because the other kid only has 5 buddies on his side? No. This is wrestling not patty cakes. I haven’t read all of these posts but come on guys! Should they class folk style state, Greco state, or freestyle state? What about Fargo should they class that for the small states? Each kid weighs the same as his opponent there is NO ADVANTAGE!
  16. I still have no clue how Blake held on for the first part of double OT totaly amazing! Awesome match, as I remember there was quite a bit of banter on the ol' message bord that year before this match.
  17. Lost the track wrestling play by play for the last two matches glad to see my wildcats back to the top. Now go get ready for February!
  18. Would have been cool to see Lee Vs. Red. That'd be the match of the season in my opinion.
  19. I was at that camp, came with a pretty cool T-shirt as I remember.
  20. I'm too young to have that experience but I did lift weights in the "Hole". Was it in use in '86 as a practice room?
  21. Hook, Post the article about "The Hole" if you would. By the way, I bought the book man it's great! Thank you for your time and effort!
  22. And so it begins... Posted by: Jayruss « on: Today at 10:19:07 AM » Insert Quote It certainly did stray, note that I didn't bring up Lee this time. Don't want the MD clan breathing down my neck for this Point taken but he is a year older this year, I just didn't like putting that much preassure on a Frosh, especialy one in a weight class with the top ranked senior in the nation, I still won't put that preassure on him my self but I do look forward to watching him wrestle this year!
