  1. I haven’t looked at the ranking in depth, but is WIN possibly only pre-season ranking guys bass on their previous college records? Where as FLO is speculating where they feel guys will fall, including those who have yet to wrestle an official college match. This may be the reason behind B. Lee not being on WIN’s ranking quite yet.
  2. Lee Homeschool about to bring home its first Super 32 medal.

  4. Mendez is still a year or two from a decision or even an official college visit, so things can always change. However, according to Flo’s Who’s #1 here is his correct college Top 5 list: Indiana, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Cornell, Iowa
  5. USA Women get enough of a boost from their 3 champs to finish 3rd.
  6. Here was the proto-type design of shirts that almost got made for the club team the one year they did more traveling. Based on the tag at the bottom that team was likely during the 2012-13 season. I recall that the design being made by one of the members friends. So maybe finding that person could give you a led to the prior group too.
  7. You may want to talk with someone from the athletic department and/or intramural sports. Not sure who’s jurisdiction a club team actually falls under. At one point I believe a club had to have a faculty sponsor to hold your practices on Ball State campus and call it a Ball State Club. Not sure if that’s still true. Then it’s just finding a way to get the word out and hopefully enough interested people show up to the meeting. Ball State has had a short-lived club team a few different times in the recent past. Some times it just been open practice at the school. Other times some members went to participate in open event or during the ISWA season. During one season the group actually got enough support to have decent singlets and a larger group traveled to a few college events, but then the team seemed to fall apart the next season. Not sure if those singlets are around the athletic department or they were bought outright by team members. It could be of use to fret and locate the leadership from that year though since they clearly have a decent idea of some do’s and don’t to help build thing if you want it to go beyond just a open practice. Time commitment, cost, and leadership graduation often takes a toll on keeping fledgling club teams going long term. But good luck to you. I’d love to see a long term club team get formed. And I’ll be the first to buy a t-shirt if you get to the point of selling them.
  8. To go with the strong ties you have to the state or support the goals of your nation. Man that type of decision once divided families on the battlefield in years past. But at least for this one I think we all come out as winner if they both just make it to the finals.
  9. True story. Even with the US women having one of the most talented teams we have had in awhile, Japan is still projected to walk away with the overall title. It wouldn’t be far fetched to say that Japans backup roster would give our main women’s squad a serious run for their money. Yes Sarah ended up with a tough draw due to Japans upset throwing off seeding. But this wrinkle in the bracket is likely the type of challenge she still welcomes and will need to embrace with an Olympic year looming.
  10. Just remember SS is not split up by each schools location, but rather by the regionals proximity to the SS locations. It’s not a perfect system but things tend to get strung out when schools are clustered or spread out in different areas across the state to start with. Then someone has to arrange those schools into somewhat even sectionals. Then two sectionals have to be put together for a regional. Regionals are where we sometimes see the crazy gerrymandered looking school location maps. But it helps to realize it’s based on sectional groups not the schools starting location. Then you have to clump four regionals together that are located the closest each semi-state. In a perfect world you would have sectional, regionals and semi-state evenly sepereted around the state but state population, school districts, and school with wrestling teams are not set up evenly across the state to start with.
  11. I hear “Hotcake” Harold Sorenson will travel form Wisconsin to challenge the living legend James “Flapjack” Flanders for the Midwest Pancake Eating Crown. As the current title holder Flanders gets to choose flavor of syrup and I’m hearing rumors of Butter Pecan in an attempt to throw Sorenson off his game. This is gonna be on epic eat-off.
  12. https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6554181-jason-tsirtsis-walk-and-talk Much of it covers the trials and tribulations he went through in the middle of his collage career.
  13. Mason Parris makes it to Round of 12 as a True Freshman HWT. To some that would be a heck of a first year accomplishment and worth a little relaxation before the next season. But Mason instead steps further out of his primary style and takes on a huge freestyle summer season during what would be some of his down time. This pays off with a much improved skill set, a shiny new world medal, and a huge confidence boost going into the NCAA season. Never satisfied.
  14. I know it HWT tactics, but still a big leap for Parris. From relatively no national freestyle experience a short time ago to now having international success. He may not always look smooth, but he’s definitely showing improvement in his match awareness and skill set. And it seems like very few people nationally seems to bring Davison name up as a up and coming college talent. But he’s been on quite an impressive run the last couple years. I think a lot more people will get to know his name as this college season progresses.
