    Sectional Brackets

    I think that quote is more fitting with a Verbal King (Kayser Soze) image.

    Sectional Brackets

    I guess if the lockout lasts longer than a day or two we needs to start asking their AD and local newspaper call/email the IHSAA and inquire why they can’t access the information needed to properly promote the event.

    Sectional Brackets

    From what I can see common opponent Reynolds may have been the deciding factor. Burdon is listed as losing to him while Ison won. Would seem like they could have had have other commons opponents though but who know. In some cases though it’s a moot point to argue the seed to far if you as a coach believe your wrestler will make it to the semi-finals, so they can wrestle it out head to head.

    Sectional Brackets

    It seems odd to wait more than a day or two and thats would only be to ensure something wasn’t messed up in the seeding process. He does know many of the other IHSAA tournament drawing get released over the IHSAA internet TV broadcast right after they have occurred. Not sure why our sport should wait until the day before our event to release the information to the public and media. Doesn’t seem like it helps anyone involved to wait that long.

    IU’s new facility opens!!

    Easiest answer is it’s very close to their old facility. It’s right off 10th street and IN46/IN45.

    IU’s new facility opens!!

    Finally got around to watching the video. Moran is a very well spoken young man.
  7. Did I miss something or did my DeLorean drop me off in 2016? Their HS match was dissected and critiques ad nauseum back then. Not sure anything new can be added to that discussion or should be at this point Guys in 2019 and these guys have been in college a few years. Let’s live this in the present and what is happening now. I’m guessing we will see these two cross paths a few more time.
  8. Well Red still shows he had the riding advantage over Lee, but he gets himself into a few bad positions and gets hit with stalling trying to hold on a little longer. You could see Red was a little hesitant at first but when he was on top to start the 2nd his confidence grew as he accumulated riding time. In the end Lee takes this one, but it was really a matter of penalty points deciding it. We may see this one again at Big10s.
  9. Chaos in the 133 top rankings. Gross out for the year. Fix over Suriano due to a controversial hand to face OT end after neither had any real offense in regulation. Dosantos over Suriano on a last second TD after getting some stalling points against him. Then Phillipi over Fix in close one. Micic has been the story of consistency lately. We will have to see if he can bring it home at NCAA’s. But he will have to run through a couple of these guys to do it.

    County Stats

    Stat are stats and thus can been skewed in a lot of different ways. Provide the number of school per county may help shed some additional light on this topic. More school would mean more sectional entries each year and more possibilities of a title.

    Lee vs Red let the games begin!

    Flow has it as part of their Big10 connection.

    Avon Sectional

    There are a couple weights where 3 have a shot at making it to state. And due to falling to 4th there, a tough kid not even making it out of regional. Bring your A game.

    Chad Red

    If he finds a way to place high at Big 10’s and peaks by NCAAs to AA then these in season mixed results are mostly forgotten. There are past guys who have had a few head scratcher results during the grind of the regular season, only to turn it on in those spotlight event like NCAA’s. We all know Red is a “gamer” who likes to prove something to the crowd in big events so hopefully we can see him rise to the occasion by the post season. College as experienced as Mark Manning & Co. have plenty of experience trying to can the code to whatever is hinder college wrestlers, we will have to wait and see if they can find the right approach to getting CJ into his top form by March.

    Event Changes for 1/14-1/19

    Hoosier Hills Conference was moved to this Wednesday evening at Jeffersonville.

    Cathedral vs Detroit Central Catholic

    And he can’t move up or down without running into another #1. DCC’s tough. Does anyone know if Mike Krause is still heading their youth development?

    State Rankings #6

    I’d agree it probably shouldn’t count if it was a JV match they wrestled. However if it was a varsity wrestle match he competed in then he would be considered a Varsity wrestler for that match. Thus, even if most of his season has been JV, it can be called a significant win if the wrestlers overall credentials suggest it.
  17. Good call on a new thread for second half of the season. I actually though about needed a new thread last week since the old one was getting long. I’m glad you had a similar thought. Things are going to get interesting as the Big10 dual season gets into full swing.

    IHSGW Girls State Championships

    Trackgopher that would make perfect sense for the Regionals wheb tge brackets are big due to unlimited entries. But I don’t see a need for the same setup at Girls State. State is only an 8 person bracket. Top 4 from the North and Top 4 from the South. Seems like that lines up perfectly for complete wrestlebacks to 3/4 option. I’m guessing the organizers want to speed the event along by not having the semi-final losers drop into an extra consolation round. Just let them wrestle for 3/4 and move on. From a tournament directors standpoint that does makes some sense since it’s a late Friday night. But, I thought this was about finally giving these girls some due. It’s Girls State not a random JV round robin to get matches. I say let the girls prove their placement by wrestling it out. Sure it may save a little time (that 2 less matches per weight) by cutting out a round of wrestle-backs, but then the first round draw completely decided your season. I’ve heard enough complaints over the years about the IHSAA doing the one loss and your done stuff at some round of boys state, but in this case the IHSAA isn’t the one deciding it. For most of these girls this is the highlight of the season and likely their last meet of the year (for some career). I’m guessing most of them would vote to stay two matches longer if it gave them them a opportunity to earn the placement they believed they have worked hard for.

    Hot Mic mat 4

    In other events I have found that having a decent play by play persons communication information throughout the match helps a lot to eliminate or at least drown out a lot of those background conversation. But that involves finding a quality person or two for each mat. That is sometimes a tall task for a multi-surface event when tournament help in general is hard to come by. You may have to turn off the mics for the opening rounds since a lot is going on and help is stretched. But maybe a couple useful play by play people can be found for at least the the finals. Or even a few of the top semi finals matches too.

    Last IHSAA Team State Tournament was 2012.

    Team State updates

    Brownsburg finds a way through the mine field to win 3A over Cathedral and Warren Central. Snyder seems to always find that optimal line up to send out for team state. Western with a hard fought win over Wawasee in 2A. Adam Central finds a way to finish off Prairie Heights in a down to the wire 1A Final.

    notable matches and upsets week of 1-2-19

    With the “proper infomtion” Dane usually gets things pretty close. Wawasee shows they are deserving of that spot.

    notable matches and upsets week of 1-2-19

    Unranked 1A North Posey gets to semi-finals of Team state before falling to #1 ranked Prarie Heights in a competitive match. Yeah there is a lot more parity in 1A between teams but still worth noting they made semi finals after beating the 1A #4 and #5 ranked teams in the pool round.

    notable matches and upsets week of 1-2-19

    Wawasee making it to the 2A Team State finals is also notable considering they are currently ranked 9th in 2A. They have topped the #1 and #5 2A team so far, now they have #2 Western.
