  1. Let's face it. Wrestling has an advantage over most sports. We never have many fans and that has been just fine with us.
  2. If I remember right you were helping me. So I see your point.
  3. Listen Barroquillo I do believe I helped you win some of your youth matches, even the defensive pin you got against a Portage kid that was smoking you. Respect your elders sonny. Focus on Indiana Tech hosting a local camp at the end of the summer so our kids can stay local for a while.
  4. My concern would be that during season practice rooms have more kids in them than the off season, there are usually more practices a week, and possibly kids aren't as good at taking clothes home when practices are back to back everyday. Plus I never focus too much on how well skin checks are being done at the Sunday tourneys but to my knowledge it isn't as strict as during the IHSAA season. To me it isn't a huge health risk because that is part of the sport. My bigger concern is kids contracting it more and knocking them out of important events.
  5. Honestly ringworm isn't the bad one. Impetigo is the one that worries me more. Once it is in the room it isn't fun to get rid of and knocks a kid out of a line up for a while.
  6. So you can have ringworm under your singlet and that will never get seen?
  7. That sucks. Like I said if we can find some kind of treatment that lowers the death rate and we can test quickly. It has been shown that CoVid has been running unnoticed as early as January and we didn't pick up on it until late February. If these 5 people contracted it and all went to the same game I would be interested in the study that shows how many people actually got it. I am not saying this isn't dangerous because it is. But we left it unchecked for a long time and we have no herd immunity or vaccine to it and we have only been guessing at how to treat it. I am just saying there are things that can change in our favor and I am hoping for them. Personally I say we just call next year a leap year and do nothing educational or sports wise. Up the age limit for a while and come back strong in 2021.
  8. My opinion is that it will truly depend on what the actual death rate is and who it is really affecting. The flu has a death rate of about .3 percent. If with all the testing that is being done we find out this also has a death rate of about the same as the flu do we still keep shutting things down because it is new and there is no herd? Right now it looks to be hardly touching our youth unless that have major immunity issues so the real risk comes with the older and at risk population. If we can find some form of treatment that lowers the death rate down even more and we are able to test quickly and isolate I think that is our best chance. But.... I get what you are saying, at this moment if the stigma is the same or worse than it is right now it will take one person at one big event for all teams to have to isolate. Until the perception changes and steers more towards the flu, which I think it probably will, things may be rocky this coming year. We just have to wait and see what comes out.
  9. I think all decisions need to be had at the very last minute. They have different data points almost everyday and as more data comes out I think it should change how this is approached.
  10. So is there a group of people that get paid to look at things and make changes? How does something like this come down the pipe? Honestly interested but not enough to try and look it up. My imagination says their is a group of people that gets paid by an association that has to at least make a couple changes a year in order for them to cash a check. They say "hey let's mess with weight classes again because that really shows we are doing something." Then the coaches don't come together and push back enough and little Tommy "Too Small" and Billy "Big Boy" suffer from it.
  11. I wish they would just leave the low weights alone. I don't care about forfeits that much. I care more about who this sport reaches. A kid that weighs around 100 pounds doesn't have much of a chance at many other sports without getting just run over. I am still not happy they moved it away from 103. The higher they raise it the more that 98 pound kid that can't gain weight gets hurt and the more that 120 something pound kid thinks he can wrestle the lightest weight.
  12. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/2020/03/26/suspected-kidnapper-gets-pinned-high-school-wrestler-new-mexico/2923871001/?fbclid=IwAR27iMOt-FYmCiFzTNTms_RnOKpvHeX9viZ1z9k5Y5xIbsszGO7ZyFKZCYw
  13. I watched the 170 match in slow motion and personally I don’t even think it was an escape. Clock hit zero and Wagner didn’t have his hips even turned into Fielden. At that point Fielden could have still scooted his hips and not given up the reversal. With that said it was a great match and both are awesome wrestlers.
  14. Not looking for a break. Looking for things to be done right isn't a break. It just what is right.
  15. Lame reasoning. Because the coaches make you angry every year has nothing to do with what is right for the kids and for the sport in general. They are 2 mutually exclusive things that as a manager or the head of an organization you should be able to separate.
  16. Also when I was doing the research a while back. I believe that we had the lowest amount of State Qualifiers for the amount of wrestlers compared to almost all other States. And making it 20 we would still be one of the lowest. So the watered down argument wouldn't fly.
  17. I didn't even read your old post on this and I was putting this exact scenario on paper earlier this year. I just never fully finished my thoughts on how it would work. This would solve many problems and I would love to see it.
  18. I believe those exact records is why the IHSAA changed the weigh in rules. We had a ton of wrestlers with 50+ wins for a while.
  19. I feel physical harm includes inappropriate touching.
  20. I'm not a religious scholar but I think they believe you should never physically harm a woman. Take that for what it is worth.
  21. To my knowledge they have never had them. I could be wrong.
