  1. Makes sense being that basketball (football and Volleyball too) have live stream show way before the first sectional game.  No reason the brackets can’t be released by Wednesday at the latest.  Likely any  major issue would be called out by someone and ruled on by Tuesday.  The IHSAA can always correct any other minor discrepancy after the fact, since it will only cause a couple weights to change.  No reason to hold up the entire state over that.  Hopefully the Friday date was just what was set by default and the “supreme overlords” will realize they can post sooner than that.   


  2. Glad I stayed in the dark until I had a chance to watch the match.  Lee’s top game is getting pretty solid.  If he can avoid scramble situations of the takedown he is a huge national title threat.  
     

    Reds didn’t get anything off tonight, which is unfortunate.  But he seems to always be a gamer come national tournament time.  Hopefully that continues to be the case.  


  3. Come enjoy a morning of wrestling in the worlds largest High School gym.

  4. Another angle is, will Robert Faulkens end up taking over the main commissioner position.  If he does then who may take over wrestling as one of their main responsibilities.  That decision will also determine what happens with wrestling (good and/or bad) over the next several years.

    Didn’t or couldn’t .. maybe I’m wrong but wasn’t his age the reason he wasn’t allowed to compete.  Thinking he turned 19 during wrestling season, which would of kept from competing, or at least the post season.  Crazy how parents made choices or for whatever reason kids ages vary.  I turned 18 first week of college, other kids turning 19 during school year lol. 

    FYI, the IHSAA age eligibility rules says you can’t turn 20 by the sports state finals.   


  6. Purdue didn’t fair any better than the Hoosiers.  41-0 shutout for both.  Iowa came, saw, and conquered this weekend.  While both teams battles Iowa’s just too solid at about every weight. There is a reason they are the currently the team to beat at nationals. 


  7. Most schools have to set a schedule and how they will use their current year competition points  more than a month or so in advance.  It’s just not feasible for the current year teams when the event is held in the middle of the season.  We would all love to see it be based on the current years success and likely near the end of the season, but the IHSAA isn’t on board with that yet.

    This is great!

    I agree.  Nice step in the right direction for girls wrestling.  This could be a helpful way to get names for college recruiting purposes with women wrestling growing and its an awesome recognition for the hard work these girls have put in.  I'm even more impressed Vito took it beyond just the Top 4 or 5.  Great job man.

    I tried to go off of past state results, ISWA State Tournaments, and results from the 4 girl invitationals this season. 

    I’m guessing TripleB is pointing out you may have missed Kelsey when looking over the results.  I believe she was 3rd last year at Girls State, and does not usually attend the girl invitationals since she’s often a starter on Madison’s varsity team.

    I perfer the after match weigh in like Jockey's in horse racing.  You weigh over your weight class you are DQ'ed.

    Those mat tactics will really change when you need to cut a few more ounces to stay under.  Sure Coach I could pin him, but I need to work off this extra sip of water and bit of a granola bar so I'm grinding out an OT win instead.  

     

    Elmo from Vision Quest would have said it best for this scenario....it's what happens in that six minutes.

    Wow!  didn't realize he was a native hoosier!  That is a fantastic bit of trivia - and I bet some former Cavemen on this forum might remember him from school. What year did he graduate?

    California born but moved to IN later from what I recall reading. 


  12. Worth also noting the big shift in the status quo that occurred at 1A today.  In the past most of placements have been populated by the northern schools, but the southern teams shown through today in a big way.  Hopefully this signals the needle is moving towards a more even north and south split at the 1A level in the future.
