    Something needs to change

    My favorite subject. We down right suck right now. I really wish it wasn’t so. You are correct that the small schools do a great job. The pride and community in the Adams area alone helps. But in general we aren’t getting it done. SAC would produce at least 1 or 2 champs a year or at least get some the finals a couple decades ago. But there has been a big drought there for a while. I will not bag on the coaches of those schools they are fighting the good fight but it is a big up hill battle. No middle school programs is where it starts but there is also more issues at play. We all would love to get the area back in going. Even if we got some great Academy not sure that will change much. Warrior Elite does a pretty good job but the kids around here aren’t coming out in droves. You can hold a clinic that is free with good coaches and the interest still isn’t that big. Plus it isn’t like good coaches grow on trees. Everyone knows to run a successful program it pretty much fills up your whole life. So if you want to be a good family man it is a tough balance. Which is why you see so many coaches only coach when their kids are going through.

    Mendez vs. Watts

    Give Angel some love in this one also. Plus the guy named Andrew Howe was decent.
  4. Meaning he gets in position to make the call quickly. Not sure if he uses 1,2 pin or 1 one thousand 2 one thousand. He will tell you if don’t want to be called pin don’t go to your back.
  5. That ref has been around forever and does a great job. Anyone that knows him knows you don’t go to your back when he refs. He calls it when he sees it and he is very consistent.

    Wrestlebacks question

    Fews years back? This has been a long topic before Indianamat existed and we used the ISWA forum.

    Upsets, who’s in, who’s out

    Don’t worry Joe I edited your post for you. It was getting uncomfortable.

    Are you really going to say you can hit a move with super in it?

    Sectional Brackets

    He said wrestle backs! We talking about it yet or are we going to wait for the screw jobs to happen at semi state?

    Round 2 goes to Lee. Good match.

    3A Team State

    Good stuff. Thanks coach. Just goes to show it isn’t about numbers or the size of the school. Every program has its unique obstacles. Keep up the good fight.

    Another Jerry McGuire Moment

    Pretty sure you are talking about our wrestler and no he isn’t ranked. Probably should be though. We don’t coach dirt. We coach intensity. Sorry your son was undefeated until he wrestled our kid but I saw absolutely nothing illegal. I never saw a choke. Now the punch your coach complained about was a cross face that didn’t work because your sons face was planted too hard on the mat. I can understand the complaint from your coach but he verbally berated the ref. You don’t get anywhere doing that. That was normal wrestling at that level.

    Scrape my face Joe and we are fighting outside the mat! 😯Legal or not.

    I can’t stand the hard push after they are out of bounds. I really really hate the face raking. Makes me immediately dislike the wrestler. It is just dirty. If a coach coaches that they should quit.
