    Carson Brewer

    Big props to the MAC Conference for getting a solid wrestler.

    Carson Brewer

    Long time coming for Brewer. Culmination of several years of hard work.

    Wow

    Not great 3rd period match management for Washington. Slivka comes back to earn the title.

    Something needs to change

    Plenty of areas of the state don’t have an academy within an hour drive. And some other area have a large 1A & 2A count too. Ft. Wayne SS has been up before it’s just a down period for them.
  5. If we have a tied team state title, I’m guessing we will hear about the round 1 scoring, or lack there of, even more. Not sure I want the controversy, but would like the shake up if it means the IHSWCA pushes to gr the correct scoring system in place.
  6. Someone Someone tell Brewer that one. He’ll make sure he gets the win but he’s a team player.
  7. The OT 152 win may have sealed it for the Irish. Great back and forth final. Big time hitting a inside trip for first time ever in a match. Take some guts to commit to that.
  8. Agreed. Donahue is good but Brewer is on a mission to finally get to the top of a podium and get his team a state title on the way.
  9. I’d say it’s debatable with his left shoulder looking like it was above of Garcia chest. But the official has to decided if his scapula was down, which extends further down than top of the shoulder.
  10. There went the EMD 4 way tie scenario.

    Finals

    Yes but if I recall the stream may only be available live to those outside the FoxSports Indiana (Mid-west) viewing area. Since they have the TV rights to IHSAA events.

    Big Saturday Morning Matches

    Ohio along with their other two big name freshman. Here is a link to Culver’s current roster. It’s a pretty solid school so they are able to pull some kids from all over the Midwest (and a few other far off places) who want a military style boarding school experience. https://www.culver.org/athletics/team-pages/wrestling

    Where was this at? Must have missed it.

    Replay Debate

    Nope, but we have enough of them as is that some wrestlers try to get away with in a match. We don’t need one more reason to try and get one. I think I’ve seen more matches have been decided by some convienent lung breaks and short term injuries than overturned called.

    Replay Debate

    When it’s one ref. Hardly never. When there is an assistant ref to check with. Sometimes.

    Replay Debate

    Seeing how they have over done it in some college meets I’m am hesitant of having it, especially under the coaches control. Does it fix some mistakes yes, but it also seems to cause problems too with match delays and allowing the tired wrestlers a breather. I can maybe see it at the higher stakes events if the officials feel the call was close enough that a video replay would be helpful to judge a scoring situation. And even then limit it to a few views and if it’s not decisive the call stands so that the action can continue without. 10min break. However, I can see how automatically giving replay just because a coach throw a brick could become as much of a hinderance to the match in some cases as it could be a help.
  17. Your right. I have to make sure I get back in time for the placement round. She knew how things were going to play out when we started dating and I went to state on her 21st birthday.

    Laplace vs Brewer Friday night

    I’m sure both gentlemen will bring their A game. Just sit back an appreciate the high level match we have the opportunity to witness on a Friday night.
  19. Does anyone have a pretty good estimate of when the Semi-Finals finals on Saturday usually ends, based on the last few years? I can pin point it down to a couple hours, but for some reason can't recall when it normally finishes up. I'm on a bit of a time crunch with arrangements during the break time (wife's birthday weekend) and want to try to time things out as best as possible. My wife thanks you for the info.

    Track Cast Question

    Big screen TV. Computer with HDMI connection. Open 4 browser windows (one for each of the mats) in your computer. Size each window to fit to each corner of your computer screen. Turn off volume to all but one of the screens. Get comfortable on your coach and enjoy. I’ve done this a few time for some trackwrestling hosted events and it works well.
  21. Really wish they would pair these student teams up with at least a nearby person with good knowledge of the sport they are covering That person could could help the broadcasters improve their knowledge of both that sports technique and the way to present that sports information to the audience. I don’t need min. By min. play by play for every move made when I can see it. Especially when they call it the wrong move. In some cases less is more. The brought in “expert” can give some info on the key positions and techniques. One of the students can add additional comments and even some led in questions to further the discussion. The other student can provide the background details of the person and their accomplishments in the sport during the down times in a match. Maybe it doesn’t work out every time but it think especially at the start of the you would want someone that’s knowledgeable in the sport to be these kids mentor as they start to learn how to present these lesser known sports to the audience.

    State brackets on track changed!

    So let me get this straight. The IHSAA tells track to hold off several days on releasing the Sectional, Regional, and Semi-State brackets with the only rational anyone mention was to “ensure the brackets were setup right”. But then they OK the release of the state brackets much earlier, only to have them all messed up. And that is even after they had the template from the online show to quickly compare them too before releasing them. You have got to be kidding me.

    Most Falls - Season

    If you would like to better compare era’s you could also look at pin % based on the total number of matches wrestled. This would help a little with comparing stats when you are dealing with a large match differential.

    Semi-State Pick'ems Results

    Oh he knows. Just doesn’t want to ruin that “street cred” he’s starting to develop with all these pick’em wins.

    Semi-State Team Scoring

    So did they go back and re-vote on this scoring change again but we didn’t get the memo? Or did someone just copy this text from an older source without even checking on any changes they had made since then? As much as the first option annoys me since it should be scored from the start and from the earlier vote they should know why. It’s at least better than the complete lack of apathy for our sport and team champions that the second option would imply?
