  1. Lots of Indiana kids at Findlay Open with UIndy there. Jordan Silvka got runner up. Can somebody paste results?
  2. I second that! You guys made a long drive back from Cleveland, after a tough day, enjoyable. And.. the production just keep getting better. Very impressive. Thanks for doing these fellas!
  3. @navy80 don’t forget Slivka. He had a good day. Gold Division 157 Jordan Slivka's place is 3rd and has scored 13.0 team points. Champ. Round 1 - Jordan Slivka (Ohio University) won by decision over Johnny Lovett (Central Michigan) (Dec 2-0) Quarterfinal - Jordan Slivka (Ohio University) won by fall over Cameron Jenkins (Ashland) (Fall 9:00) Semifinal - Brady Barnett (Cleveland State University) won by decision over Jordan Slivka (Ohio University) (Dec 14-7) 3rd Place Match - Jordan Slivka (Ohio University) won by decision over Jordon Tague (Notre Dame ) (Dec 9-4)
  4. Lots of Indiana guys wrestling in this this weekend (Sunday) over in Cleveland. It’s on track. Good mix of smaller and bigger teams. Should be a good one.
  5. U Indy us getting a great kid! Congrats to Ray and the whole Rioux family!
  6. Gil worked out with my son some last year. Helped him a lot. He’s a great man and a great mentor. Multi-time police and fire games champ too!
  7. The slam call on DJ Washington was very controversial. He lifted the kid up and put him straight on his back. DJ was to the side and looked to hit the ground with the kid. I was talking to Nick Willhams grandpa when it happened. He is a high school and college ref. We both agreed that a slam should not have been called. The kid that got returned to the mat is a great kid. He used to live in Lawrenceburg and moved to Cincinnati for high school. Unfortunately he suffered a stinger as the result of the impact and could not continue. I truely believe that if he could of continued he would of. As matter of fact, he tried and was told no by the trainers. Just a bad call and bad all around deal. DJ did great today.
  8. Lots of young Indiana talent doing well in fresh / soph division at MSU open.
  9. Yep... that’s common knowledge. I really forget your real name and nobody cares. Maybe @TeamGarcia remembers? But man really... you are an idiot! Lol... smh
  10. My point exactly. I promise you there are many kids that go to Disney that have no clue about Fargo or what it is. We sell the kids on a fun trip with good competition and well over 100 kids from Indiana go all the way to Orlando to do it. They or the clubs get them there and many parents go. The clubs pay for most of there coaches to go. They are easily sold. I guess my point is this,,, If we want better results from our dual teams and out at Fargo, we need to change they way we "market" it. And... @base is correct. We need to make it more affordable (somehow). BTW... hats off to the ISWA for starting the youth trip to Wisconsin for Kids Freestyle and Greco nationals! It a very low cost trip. It will help groom our younger studs for the freestyle and Greco trips when they reach the age to go. This is a great step!
  11. Im talking duals and Fargo. As a former board member, I get it. I do understand the cost. I love the ISWA and the leadership. With that said... a good deal of families are not happy or skipping these trips all together and the results are not great. Just think it’s time to try something new. I do know that taking your own kids won’t save much money (if any). It’s more about the wrestlers and families enjoying the trips and ensuring their best efforts. btw... how many Indiana kids go to Disney for a week? More than Fargo? I know we charged $400ish. I would like to hear from wrestlers and parents on their thoughts. Heck I could be completely wrong????
  12. No doubt Marshall. I know that some wrestlers absolutely hate the bus ride to Fargo and hate staying in those dorms. I know of wrestlers that have skipped the trip because of it. Pay a lot for a trip that they don’t totally enjoy. Looks like we are getting good numbers at Super 32 with no formal trip. Kids are taking their coaches and / or parents, staying in decent hotels, and paying less (maybe). I would like to see a poll. Would more people like to keep the Fargo trip like it is or have the camps here (to prepare) and get themselves there. Take who you want with you and stay where they want? It may be apples to oranges.. but the ISWA sends two elementary teams to Heartland every year. When I first started that trip, the fees were $140 per wrestler. The parents provided there own transportation and lodging. Every year we finish around the top 5. I know that the fees for that trip have went up. With that said, the model works. I would like to point out some of the National duals that our top kids are doing also. Our elite kids are getting snatched up by Team Shutt, Minions, Scorpions, David Taylor, etc... these kids are going on these trips for way less then it takes to go on an Indiana national team and are getting great exposure. Seems like our top dogs are willing to spend their money on these trips. Personally.. my son did. He loved his trips with the all-star teams. It may be time to rethink how we structure our national team trips. We are too good to be finishing where we have been.
  13. Chad... Sorry to hear about the injury. I did talk to him at length last Thursday (days after he hurt it). He was and great spirits, but told me that it could be bad. He was still drilling and showing stuff. He was helping others prepare for Super 32. Because... that is what leaders do! He has made an excellent choice to go to Ohio. Those boys will have a bed for him this summer when he is ready! Sorry that it had to end like this, but there’s sooo many good times ahead! Keep your heads up! O-U-Oh-Yeah
  14. Got a couple of my main guys from TheCounty at Wabash this season. Dem boys have been working hard. Not fooling us Unc. Look forward to seeing your boy kick butt this year! I got a real cool Wabash wrestling hat for the season too!
