  1. Red’s has had some tough losses the first part of this season. I’m not sure if it’s the college grind, not stabilizing his weight, needing to adapt to top guys scouting him better, or just in a mental funk, but if anything can get him a little more hyped up it likely a rematch with Lee. Red likes to prove the doubters wrong and I’m sure he still recalls hearing from several people that he won the first encounter due in part to Lee’s regular season injury layoff. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn’t. But getting another shot to prove he’s to better wrestler of these two Indiana titans has to give him a little added motivation. I’m sure Lee as well would love to show everyone how far he’s came since that epic HS match by trying to open the score wide up. He maybe far enough remove from the first match to not dwell on the loss, but when you see Nebraska on upcoming meet schedule you can’t help but have some flashback and want a little redemption. Based on their recent showing I’d give Lee the advantage. He’s scoring in bunches against solid competition and the Rec Hall crowd can just gets the PSU wrestled to a whole new gear. But you know Red will do all he can to keep the match within reach and show he’s still can find a way to edge out Lee.

    *Updated* Flo National Rankings

    As I say every year, unfortunately the majority of our guys will drop in the ranking during the season due to not having many nationally ranked opponents or major tournaments to get attention. At best a few wrestlers may stay in their position based on a very solid showing during the off-season and pre-season events. Some teams attending out of state duals may help a couple wrestler find a ranked opponent, but the attention getter are usually the tournaments. As mentioned in a different post it’s veey difficult to find a high profile out of state tournament to enter since we would not be allowd to face any opponent who came from outside our travel radius.
  3. If you are a wrestling fan, especially at the college level you need to have Mat Talk on your podcast list. Jason Bryant does an excellent job gathering information from all the college divisions of wrestling. Then throws in some good international and high school details when big events occur. He also routinely has a great interviews with a variety of people connected with the sport.

    # of Women in your program

    Seymour currently has 8 at the HS and 1 at our MS. Many of them came over from the girls soccer program. A few of them are also in softball and hope wresrling will help them prepare for that. All are first year wrestlers and currently on the JV roster. We had 1 who graduated last year after two years with the program.
  5. If Ball State is not going to have a wrestling program at least I’m happy to see a MAC conference team get another IN stud. Good luck.

    IHSAA Rules Change Needed

    Travel restrictions for IN teams seem fine for the most part since there are plenty of high profile competition options within that mileage. As SWINFan said the real issue is we can’t face any team who travels farther than the radius To face us. That limits the events we can participate, especially in individual sports which have multiple entries who you can’t avoid seeing. Who cares how far the other teams have to travel, as long as we are within the limits it should be fine. If our opponents want their kids traveling father that is on their school/athletic board and it does not effect our athletes in any way.
  8. The wrestling community has all sorts of multi-duals, tournaments and even some wrestling rooms named after someone. Yes, we can assume most, if not all, of the honorees had a connection to the wrestling team or athletic program. However, for most people that as much as we think about that person. As a historian of the sport I’d love to hear the story of who these individuals were. If it was worth placing their namesake on an event then it only seems right that we should also take a moment to honor the person as well.

    Not short joke as I used to be that way too. Then I grew out of it.

    Biggest blunder was putting Walton at 132. He hasn't been short enough to cut to that weight since like 7th grade.
  11. Yes, I’ve also been curious about Brock since I haven’t seen any results from this season yet.
  12. Not originally from the Hoosier state but Purdue’s Parriott just made the finals of the tough Cliff Keen Las Vegas Tournament.
  13. Kemerer is our for the year due to season ending surgery. Tough break for him, but helpful for some of our IN guys.

    Evansville Semi-State Rankings #1

    To amend my previous post S32 is a day before weigh-in’s so that cut and recovery time is a little different than morning of weigh-ins. I’m getting word from Columbus that 170 is where South is planning to be this season.
